Kurzbeschreibung

Mike Mitchell, an average New Yorker working to keep his family together, finds himself fighting just to keep them alive when a string of disasters shreds the world around them...

The Internet and communication networks go down. A deadly viral epidemic starts raging across the country. Then a monster snowstorm cuts New York off from the world.

In the chaos, rumors fly about a foreign attack, but even this becomes unimportant as Mike and his family struggle to survive in the wintry tomb of a doomed New York.

"I couldn't put it down...a novel that finally shows how dangerous our transition to an interconnected infrastructure could become." - Karic Allega, Joint Cyber Command, US NAVY

An international bestseller translated into fifteen foreign languages, CyberStorm is now in development for a major motion picture by 20th Century Fox. CyberStorm is an edge-of-your-seat view into one family's battle for life in a ruined mega-city. It is the newest bestseller from Matthew Mather, a leading cybersecurity expert and author of the bestselling science fiction series The Atopia Chronicles.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Very nice! 25. Dezember 2013
Von Mark
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
It is a very nice but serious reading about what people can start doing in an extreme crisis. The crisis is a break-down of the internet combined with a number of different events.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Solid and Realistic Apocalyptic Thriller 15. Oktober 2013
Format:Taschenbuch
As our lives and interactions are increasingly based in and around the online world, a whole different level of security and safety concerns opens up. We have been living with the threat of computer viruses and identity theft for quite some time, but in recent years the sophistication and the reach of “cyber” threats has increased dramatically. It is not hard to imagine that at some point a malicious government with the right kind of know-how, or a very resourceful and malicious non-governmental organization might launch a devastating online attack that can cripple or seriously damage much of the important infrastructure in the US and the rest of the developed world. In fact, as many of the recent newspaper headlines can testify, NSA and many other high-level security agencies take this kind of threat very, very seriously.

In CyberStorm Mathew Mather makes a very detailed and gripping thought-experiment in which he imagines what would really happen if a very devastating computer attack were in fact to happen. He weaves a gripping and persuasive narrative around a group of families living in Manhattan. (For some reason all the worst disasters in fiction always hit Manhattan.) The story follows day-by-day events and paints a very painful picture of the deterioration of all civilized behavior and norms of conduct in the face of such a devastating catastrophe. Some parts of the book have a feel of an episode of The Walking Dead, a scene from The Road, or any number of other post-apocalyptic movies or novels. Nonetheless, CyberStorm is very unique in terms of its subject matter, especially of the details concerning the workings of the technological infrastructure on which we depend.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Gripping and plausible 21. März 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Cyberstorm is a prequel to Matthew Mather's "Atopia Chronicles", and a haunting description of what would happen in case of a cyber attack - all systems failing one by one. First, we only see some issues with our direct internet connections, then the infrastructure gets hit: supermarket checkout counters stop working, ATMs as well, TV feeds are failing, power goes down, and so on.... To make things worse, the protagonists of the story live in New York, and it is around Christmas, just in time for blizzard season. Initially, people huddle together and share, and even help each other, but as resources get scarce, they start the slow descent from human to animals that just want to survive.
The strength of Cyberstorm is how believeable and immersive it is. The world it starts in is our world, today, and we can find ourselves in these character's daily lives, and wonder what we would do if this kind of disaster happened in our hometowns. The characters in the book are three-dimensional and likeable, and we start to feel their fears, their dwindling hope and their desparation. In that regard, it is a magnificent book.
Personally, I expected a bit more Science Fiction and a little less drama/survival thriller...but still, the book gripped me from the first page, and was overall a great read.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Liked Atopia better, but still a great read! 20. September 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
CyberStorm is a geat book, again making you feel the author knows what he writes about.
Personally I liked the Atopia Chronicles better, but that is just a matter of personal preference, thus 5 stars from me.
I'm looking foreward to the next book!

(This was first published a few minutes ago from me on Goodreads)
As I looked through my wishlist (Wunschzettel) on my Kindle for the Prime-Sign to show that I can borrow a book, I read that this was in development for a movie.
Will start June 17th, 2014 (today), but try to finish The Maze Runner as I am at 67% there and want to finish it soon.
The Cyber-Attack is paired with really bad weather and the story concentrates not on the reason for the attack, but on the conditions of a little group of people who have one prepared prepper. A winter storm (a few days later a second one threatens) makes things worse.
Nothing is really known, wether it was an attack from a foreign nation or hackers from within.
Disinformation, paranoia and conspiracy theories are rampant.
This is not so much a book about a Cyber-Attack, but rather a disaster-novel with a bit of technology-breakdown thrown in.
As fuel for backup-power-generators runs out, TV/CNN/Radiostations shut down.Much of the story would have happened without the hacker-attack, as systems depend on power and connectivity between each other for maintenance and to the internet.

At the current reading speed, I hope to finish it soon. It is not so much that it drags, but rather that I wanted more cyber, less normal life. And some of the people, I could care less wether they died or not.
So far not recommended. May change hopefully when an explanation is given or with the ending.

OK, so three stars it is, some discussions and warnings in the book are true and the explanation in the ending is good, but as expected, nothing too fancy - the conspiracy theories bandied about during discussions in the book and from private selfmade-radio-stations are better, well some of them.
