Kurzbeschreibung

An international bestseller translated into fifteen languages, CyberStorm is now in development for a major motion picture by 20th Century Fox.

Mike Mitchell, an average New Yorker working to keep his family together, suddenly finds himself fighting just to keep them alive when a string of disasters tears down the world around them. The Internet and communication networks go down. A bird flu epidemic starts raging across the country. Then a monster snowstorm cuts New York off from the world. In the chaos, rumors fly about a coordinated foreign attack, but even this becomes unimportant as Mike and his family struggle to survive in the wintry tomb of 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

CyberStorm is an edge-of-your-seat view into one family's battle for life in a doomed 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.

(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.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good Doomsday / End of the World Book 5. Juni 2013
Von Michael Gallagher - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This is really a tale of two books - the first 90% was great and, without having a spoiler, the last 5-10% was a little disappointing as if the author changed gears in the story or was tired of writing. The author does a great job of getting you into the minds of the characters, and paints a picture of a possible cyber meltdown I found realistic and quite frightening if it were to occur. You feel the raw emotions of the characters as they have their highs and lows (a lot of lows and suffering), and I had a hard time putting it down.

I picked this up for 99 cents in the Kindle store, and despite my comment above on the last 5-10% of the novel I enjoyed it, and certainly received a heck of a lot more entertainment value than 99 cents. If you like to read realistic doomsday-type fiction, I would recommend this one!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Best "collapse of society" book I have read in a long time 13. März 2013
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I have recently been on an "End of the World" binge (zombies, EMP, nuclear, disease, etc) and was getting a bit fed up with the genre. This book has re-kindled (pun intended) my interest and left me wanting more. It just seems a lot more realistic then other books in this category because I find the pace/speed of events and descriptions of the societal breakdown to be a lot more plausible. Without adding too many spoilers, I find that there is just a good mix of cyberwar, confusion, collapse and hope. All of this with a bit of violence and desperation thrown in for good measure. I started caring (and sometimes hating) many of the mian characters in this book. It is a very good, quick read for anybody interested in the genre in addition to being a way above average read for anybody else.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Interesting Theory 10. April 2013
Von Bibliophile - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Cyberstorm has a realistic plot and believable characters. I enjoyed the thought process behind the scenario; what really would happen if a virus took out technology? Would cities be able to revert to pre-technology to survive, or would people turn back into animals and wind up killing each other off?

Pros: I found myself coming back to pick this book up when there were other things I could have been doing (like housework). I wanted to see how it all played out. The characters were enjoyable, and several of them I found myself pulling for while others I could have pushed off the fire escape with little remorse myself. Makes for a better story when you can see the people in 3D in your head.

Cons: There were times I thought there was some redundancy in the events, the same things happening again and again without taking the story forward; I'm glad I powered through because things did get interesting again. Closer to the end, though, I felt the story lacked continuity in that each chapter showed it covered several days yet the scenes in that chapter looked to evidence one day. I was a bit confused by that.

The epilogue might have read better had it been written in the order it happened instead of jumping ahead and then looking back at what had happened between the end of the story and the beginning of the epilogue.

If you're in the mood for an easy read with an underlying tension from a topic that could potentially happen, pick this one up. I was gifted this book to read and asked for my honest opinion; having said that, looking back I wouldn't have been sad about spending a few dollars for the entertainment. Any book that can have me coming back is worth the price of admission.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Couldn't put the book down! 13. März 2013
Von Adi Sagi - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
After reading Matthew Mather's Atopia, I was anxiously waiting for his new book, and I wasn't disappointed!

This book is about cyber warfare. It illustrates in a very realistic way, what an "all out" cyber warfare can cause, and what can happen when it crosses from cyber into the real world.

How would your life look, if suddenly you didn't have Facebook?
...
How would your life look if the Internet would stop working?
...
Or... If electricity would stop altogether?

I can tell you that when I did put the book down, it really made me think of how MY world would look like if half the things that could happen would happen. It's a real eye-opener.

Anyone who likes Mather's writing would probably like this one.
Anyone who is interested in cyber would definitely like this one.

Again, a hard book to put down, and this one really makes you think of your world, and how fragile it could become in the right (or wrong...) circumstances.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Challenge for Survival 15. März 2013
Von Beverly Stowe McClure - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
What if your life suddenly became a challenge for survival? What if you heard that a foreign computer code, designed to knock out the U. S. energy grid, has been embedded in U. S. power plant control systems? What if the everyday things you take for granted, like water, electricity, and food, are no longer available and you have to scrounge, steal, or get them any way you can? Not a pleasant thought, is it?

Author Matthew Mather's latest novel, CYBERSTORM, may answer these questions for you. And you may wish you hadn't asked. Mike Mitchell thought he had problems with his wife Lauren's parents. That was before he heard reports that websites had been hacked and defaced, and a code designed to knock out the U. S. energy grid was embedded in power plant systems. Rumors suggest that China is responsible. People are dying too from what is suspected as bird flu. Soon Mike, Lauren, and their two-year-old son, Luke, along with their neighbors are scrounging for food, heat, and water, while trying to figure out what is going on and who is responsible. With the passing days and no answers, just starving people, Mike discovers just how far some will go to survive. Imagine killing for a handful of peanuts. Some of the scenes are rather gory, though they do show how desperation can bring out the worst in people and also the best.

I read mostly books for young adults and children because that's what I write, but CYBERSTORM caught my attention and once I started reading the book I was glad I did. The scary thing, in my opinion, is that the events in the novel could be possible. Think how much we depend on our computer network, and how our world would change if some power gained control of the banks, businesses, and even our government. Matthew Mather's book gives the reader a glimpse at what it might be like to face a cyber attack. CYBERSTORM is also a story of family and friendships and how things are not always what they seem. I recommend it and believe you'll enjoy the read as much as I did.
