After the genius of Daemon and Freedom TM, I had very high hopes for this book. But all I heard was techno mumbo jumbo that do not advance the story, characters who earn no empathy, and a plot that lacks any thrills until the last 3 chapters.
The only thing saving this book from a 1 star review is Jeff Gurner's excellent narration, which only reminds me of listening to Freedom TM again.
Another awesome techno thriller from Daniel Suarez. Kill Decision is slathered with lots of techno babble, awesome weapons and incredibly creative and cool countermeasures. As a fan of techno thrillers I was in heaven! Kill Decision is one of those books that I can easily see myself coming back to and enjoying multiple times in the future.
Jeff Gurner was great once again. If you haven't already listened to Suarez's other two books do yourself a favor and download Daemon & Freedom today. You will enjoy Gurner's great narration in both books.
The thrilling storyline and unmanned drones is an intessing yet deadly issue that we may face in the near future, Again his work focus' on plutocrats and fighting against them. All in all a very thrilling book.
Never knowing when the drones would attack as well as the excitement of Odin and hist team fight to find more information.
The point where Oden and the Professort were attemting to run the bba_Mærsk ashore when all the drones on the ship could easily of killed them if it wasn't for the pheremone spray.
Satisfied Audible listener since 2002. I mostly listen to Sci-fi and anything by Stephen King.
Hard to top the first two books I read by this author. This one comes pretty close. I hope there is more to come from these charectures.
GREAT performance by Gurner. Also, Suarez writing is sharp and the subject matter is very thought provoking. The only thing keeping it from 5 stars is the incompleteness of the book. That is all I can say without spoiling it. Definitely worth the listen though- Suarez's great writing along with Gurner's performance is not to be missed, even in light of a loose ending.
Finding myself actually interested in the description of ant behavior.
Yes- and Gurner never disappoints. Dead on and entirely enjoyable.
I like to compare Kill Decision to Suarez's earlier books Daemon and Freedom. The author looks into how technology can go astray.
I've listened to Jeff's performance Suarez's earlier books Daemon and Freedom. He has delivered another great performance.
There is probably a follow up novel that moves the story forward, similar to what Freedom did to Daemon.
I've read both previous novels by Daniel Suarez and have enjoyed them quite a bit. If you like his previous work this one won't disappoint. I think Daemon is probably the best of the three.
What's really amazing is the frightening fact that reality is so close to the story of military drones in the book.
Creative mind enjoyment
Yes.... His computer plot enemies/ actions were great
Intensity and more life sense
There were several
I bought Daemon...it is also mind and entertainment driving!
Love fiction and non-fiction, love Audible!
The story isn't exactly mind-bender, but captivating and thought through well enough to grab attention and make one want to stay around for more. The performance is superb, characters do come alive, the atmosphere and the setting seems very real.
I think the authors ability to transport the reader into the story. I can see in my mind the exciting story taking place as though I am there.
Demon and Freedom are similar style and just as exciting. The same narrator read these books and did a phenomenal job on those books too.
There were many favorites for me but the HALO jump and the final approach on the cargo ship probably are most memorable.
