ã Read ☆ Kilo Class by Patrick Robinson ã This was my first Patrick Robinson book and I wasn t sure I d like it because it had to do with submarines and other things I don t normally read about Oh was I wrong this book had me hooked from the beginning Robinson takes you through the story and thankfully explains the workings of our Navy s nuclear submarines which fascinated me and introduces everyone to the hard nosed Admiral Arnold Morgan my new favorite man I could not put this book down and am actually going to read it again in the future I never thought I d be entranced and enthralled to learn about submarines, rescue missions and other aspects of the Navy don t want to spoil the book here I absolutely LOVE this book Kilo Class by all means is a very specific military Navy action thriller that catered to that very reader ship group Which leaves about almost all of us a bit alienated by the terms and turn of events that unfold in the story I am not really sure if Robinson was trying to appeal to a wider demographic or bigger scope of readers with this book, because reading through it, I cannot help but to be confused with many things, except if I were a serviceman As of any other books, the first few front pages were dedicated to excepts of great reviews Which were fine, except that many of these seems to include many military influenced related sources You can guess well who will love this book.
THE MAIN PLOT The Russians are preparing an order of the remaining seven out of ten Kilo Class nuclear powered submarines to China Three had been delivered and patrolling or docking near I enjoyed this book Well developed characters with good back story on a few Good technical descriptions without being too dense in that regard.
Primero dos precisiones antes de la cr tica Estoy leyendo el libro en ingl s para perfeccionar el mismo y son un fan acerrimo de Tom Clancy.
Dicho esto, la novela me ha dejado sentimientos encontrados Y digo esto porque la verdad es que el autor, bien asesorado tiene momentos en los que la acci n militar despunta, pero la verdad es que no acaba de transmitir una sensaci n de tensi n en el libro Y en mi humilde opini n creo que es porque a la trama en s le falta chicha Es decir, si algo tiene Clamcy es que va montando toda la trama para que al final todo estalle en el aire en un final pico P nico nuclear, el libro no la pel cula, es un claro ejemplo de como llevar a todos a un cl max brutal En cambio en este libro todo se va sucediendo y no acabas de sent The second in the series of realistic fictional submarine stories This one was better constructed than the first from a story standpoint More complex plot construction, and an intricate weaving of story perspectives It gained momentum as it went along and reached a natural progression Looking forward to continuing the story, hopefully with a few appearances from our favorite couple of characters from the first book.
Kilo Class by all means is a very specific military Navy action thriller that catered to that very reader ship group As the title suggests, it s about submarines I listened to the 2.
5 hour version instead of the 16.
5 hour version and enjoyed it very much I imagine that I obviated all the submarine detail and clutter that obfuscates the plot with minutiae Looking forward to continuing the story.
