Summary:

The year is 2026. China has taken over as the world's largest economy, while the United States, mired in an oil shortage, struggles to adjust to its diminished role. Then, a surprise attack throws the U.S. into a chaos unseen since Pearl Harbor. As the enemy takes control, the survival of the nation will depend upon the most unlikely forces: the Navy's antiquated Ghost Fleet and a cadre of homegrown terrorists. Ghost Fleet is unique in that every piece of technology featured in the novel already exists or is in the works. Peter W. Singer is Senior Fellow and Director of the 21st Century Defense Initiative at the Brookings Institution and a consultant for the US Department of Defense and FBI. August Cole is a journalist and writer specializing in national security issues and is an Adjunct Fellow at the American Security Project.

    Relevant, illuminating, and an engrossing story. As a military person, I can authoritatively say that the book is frighteningly plausible. I only wish that ending of the next Great War is as predictable as the one portrayed in the book.

    This was recommended to me from some of my military superiors. While not necessarily disappointing, it had a lot of hype to live up to and it let me down slightly. That being said this is a really good book, mostly due to the thought provoking plot.

  • Rusty Burson

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Told from a perspective where Americans had to resort to hand-to-hand battle to win back the country. Very interesting

    good story, but the narrator's voice was either too low or high at times yelling.

    This is male-niche literature. I found it extremely boring despite my usual love of these types of books

  • Carole B.

    Excellent excellent story excellent narration

  • Victor W.

    The book had an interesting storyline in the fact that it outlined current and mothballed weapon and surveillance technology. Some of the weapons that were described are absolutely mind-blowing! The narrator, Rich Orlow, was definitely one of the worst I have listened to ever since I started listening to Audiobooks. I enjoy listening to narrators that change their accents and gender tones to fit the various characters in the novel. This guy sounded the same whether he was reading as a male or female and also different nationalities that were in the book from Chinese to English, etc. Everyone sounded the same! he was so bad that I will not purchase another book that has him as a narrator. If I wanted someone to just read to me in their regular voice I would have my kids do it!

    It’s was good at times and keep my interest, the ending could have been a bit more climatic, liked the narrator. Overall it was a decent read. Didn’t love it but was far from hating it, could definitely see this as a movie one day

    This book was a lot of fun. Should come with a warning though. Busting out laughing while driving 70 MPH on the highway could be dangerous. I listen to audiobooks during my commute. I truest did not want this to end. Hoping for a Space Fleet II.
