Couldn’t Put It Down
The cyber war theme creates a new niche for thriller writers. Cyberionage (A Mystery, Espionage, and Cyber War Thriller) fills the bill well. However, the tone of the prose comes off a bit mundane in the opening of the book, the story advances in many complex and highly plausible directions. Unlike other reviewers which felt the story to be far fetched, this reader thought the insidious use of the Millennium Bug to infiltrate computer systems world wide presented the first pl

"Cyberionage" is a modern-day thriller that is set in Israel. The main character is Moti Kidron, an Israeli soldier who goes on to serve in both special forces and the Mossad. He is a genius in the field of computer science. The story takes the reader from a skirmish between the IDF and Hamas to the brink of nuclear war.

I enjoyed the premise and the plot of this novel. It was modern and timely. I haven't read anything even similar to this storyline. Elias does solid work weaving the story from M

I liked the start of the book when Moti is just a soldier, the first part in the war was highly interesting, even if it was hard to read with my near zero army knowledge.
Then it turns really bad. The book becomes highly technical like a badly written textbook and it feels like info dumping all over the place and heavy, unnecessary back story until about 47% of the book. It was hard to read even for someone with programming and computer skills.
Then finally the plot starts to appear and the story

This is a good, but poorly developed, idea for a story. It is too technical for most readers and reads like the fantasy of an undervalued IT specialist. In fact, I classified it as fantasy as well as mystery-thriller because the story is so highly improbable, not from a risk point of view, but from so many nations accepting the single-handed leadership of one questionable man. That just isn't going to happen in an environment of self-centered, political leaders!!

Man, there were a lot of errors in the Kindle version of this book. I would prob rate this 3.5 if I could, and I decided on 4 instead of 3 because I really liked the way Elias flew through 20 years of story to lay down a framework. I also like the way he handled technology. It seemed like he really did a lot of research to get ready to write this story. Some of the dialog is cheesy, but I feel that way with most action/thrillers I read.

Nuclear threat from Iran is predicted by a super computer and program developed by a Israeli computer wiz and Mossad agent bring all the world powers into conflict until the crisis is resolved. Interesting read that somewhat follows the growth of the computer development over the years as well as the buildup to the last minute resolution.

Spannend verhaal over de bedreigingen in de huidige tijd. Snel geschreven. "Goede" kant VS, Israel en Saudi Arabia tegen Iran. Aan de ene kant mensen die alles overhebben voor de goede zaak en aan de andere kant diegene waar alleen geld telt. Zojuist Threat vector van Tom Clancy gelezen en die behandelt ook de gevaren van het digitale tijdperk.

This book seemed to drag on. Then when it finally started to get interesting, it ended. Like there was a word limit on this book, and when it was reached *poof*. It's a cool idea, but something was lacking. And poor Yasmin is just left.... Which is kind of shitty since she gave up her family to help out some guy who just seemed to use her as his puppet.

Fiction is known for the liberties it takes with reality.
However this book, the plot, the characters etc is a bit too far fetched and the characters were never developed to such a degree that I could connect with them

Maybe I was simply not in the mood for a techno thriller.
I don't know. But in the end while not a bad read it did not thrill me either.

This was indeed quite a page-turner. The technology was quite interesting. However, the situations were quite disjointed. Further, the story was HIGHLY improbable. Development of the characters was shallow.

Reminded me of Tom Clancy books. Seems like half ov the book consisted of techo details of electronics, weapons, etc... But it was enjoyable, and I actually even tried to understand the techo details. Good plot, and good ending.

A credible insight into a modern war! Crisp and racy writing style! Believe me, Michael Elias is here to stay. I only wish, he values the services of a professional editor, and a few competent Beta Readers for his next book.

I read the Kindle version. I'm giving it 2 stars for lack of editing. 4 stars for the story. A Good Read. Action packed, I didn't want to put it down.

An interesting tale of cyber warfare. I detected 6 errors, the worst of them being that he has latitude and longitude wrong.

Enjoyed the high level of technical detail.
