"The Ghost War" is very enjoyable, difficult to put down. As it ended, I reflected that the plot actually wasn't that good - if I described it, it wouldn't sound that interesting. But, Berenson is such a good writer, that I thoroughly enjoyed "The Ghost War." Not quite as good as the first book in the series, but still very good. I'm starting the third book immediately.
I'm really getting into Berenson and with George Guidall it comes out as a dynamic duo. Duplicating a nuke is a bit of a stretch but still makes for a good story. And for me, that's what it's all about.
I enjoyed everything it about the book but the ending. It was a bit anticlimactic and left much unfinished business with the arms dealer and the mole.
this is the second of the series i heard.the rush to finish the story ruined its buildup. suddenly the war never happens, alls right with the world. It was clear the author reached a point where after long buildups, he wanted it ended whether it matched the introductory story or not. I may try the next in the series in the hope there is a better plot and windup...
like falling off a cliff, it is suddenly over.
fine voicing and pacing. as good as a reader gets
I hope this isn't an example of his other books. I mistakenly downloaded another title before I listened to this one. I won't make that mistake again.
Yes, I have other books that he did.
After 2 hours of listening to this I gave up, it jumped around to so many different people and plots and none of them seemed to relate to the other except that CIA is somehow involved.
This is truly a great story that just keeps you entertained throughout. George Guidall is without a doubt one of the best narrators out there. His voice is as much the story as the book itself. A wonderful wonderful 2nd book of the series. I highly recommend.
Hi, I'm an alumi of NYU and I'm also huge into MMA. I love books I read a lot and review the stand outs. I'll give you guys the goods.
This really was an awesome read plenty of action and twists and turns.Do yourself a favor and get this book.
OK book, blot not very plausible. Ending is a bit too quick and solution not realistic. Trying to tie the rise of China into war with terrorism seems far fetched. Book saved by good characterization of main character. Good audio reader.
I really did not think the Chinese characters made any sense. I especially think the turn coat was not believable. I would not recommend this unless you have exhausted this genre.
...if you like the NYTimes, you'll appreciate this; condemnation of US practices and confirmation of the correctness of PC thought
