    Kindle Frederik Pohl Ö The Cool War MOBI Þ The Cool Epub / Ö cool book, The Cool book, The Cool War PDF/EPUBI am really not sure why I didn’t enjoy this than I didThe premise is great instead of open armed conflict between countries everyone is doing everything they can to ruin things for the other guy And this is brilliant—and remarkably current I mean look at the mess that the US is in right now Now imagine that the CA wildfires were started by German operatives in order to tax our resources and strain our economy Or what if the Astros’ cheating scandal was arranged by Japan to make us all give up on watching baseball?THAT’S where this book is coming from and it seems like it should have been awesome But I just wasn’t all that into it I think on one hand the writing style and characters are very very dated So while the subject matter could fall in pretty much anywhere the characters are very much stuck

    Kindle Frederik Pohl Ö The Cool War MOBI Þ The Cool Epub / Ö cool book, The Cool book, The Cool War PDF/EPUBI love Pohl’s hard science fiction Heechee stories and I loved the cover of this edition of this book so I was reasonably confident that I would enjoy this However I on turning the last page I feel that this work is not exactly the literary summit of Pohl’s career It has an interesting idea on how the nature of war might evolve but it is mixed with; some basic science fiction ideas on energy generation and some of the genre’s most egregious examples of one dimensional characters He then sticks all of that into a what can best be described as a dire romp plot that passe

    Kindle Frederik Pohl Ö The Cool War MOBI Þ The Cool Epub / Ö cool book, The Cool book, The Cool War PDF/EPUBI got a pristine hardback copy of this in the 1990s for 3 dollars because it was in some cut out bin at a used book shop that I liked I recall enjoying it a lot It's an amusing take on cold war with some fun ideas But alas I read it so long ago that I can't

    Kindle Frederik Pohl Ö The Cool War MOBI Þ The Cool Epub / Ö cool book, The Cool book, The Cool War PDF/EPUBA forgotten gem of futurism this thriller explores some pertinent themes such as energy environment and economic coercion It is dated especially the computer technology but world events have only confirmed Pohl's analysis of our collective malaiseIf you have any interest in realpolitik or global economic development you should seek this one out

    Kindle Frederik Pohl Ö The Cool War MOBI Þ The Cool Epub / Ö cool book, The Cool book, The Cool War PDF/EPUBI haven't read any of the author's other works But this one was a muddled and meandering story sort of a mash up or a futuristic spy farce

    Kindle Frederik Pohl Ö The Cool War MOBI Þ The Cool Epub / Ö cool book, The Cool book, The Cool War PDF/EPUBThis novel inhabits that strange satirical world populated by other works such as perhaps On Her Majesty's Occult Service or Modesty Blaise serials and even The Loo Sanction or maybe even Catch 22 Pohl does not pull his punches and so absurdity has a backbone to it

    Kindle Frederik Pohl Ö The Cool War MOBI Þ The Cool Epub / Ö cool book, The Cool book, The Cool War PDF/EPUBThis is good for a light read though it is uite datedFor a book written in the 1980s set in the 2020s it seems to mispredict a lot about communications and politics One plot point depends on how the main character will reveal his findings to the world before the government silences him In the age of Wikileaks and YouTube it should be a trivial effort at best Computers are rare and a library search engine is treated as a new technological marvel Everyone still uses typewriters and tapes The Soviet Union and Yugoslavia still exist No one has cell phonesOrdinarily I wouldn't harp on these things so much but near future novels date badly and the widespread use of computers should have been apparent After all early mass market gaming systems which are merely specialized computers such as the Atari 2600 existed and the Altair 8800 was around in the 1970s When the plot involves secrecy and communications it can fall flat when it

    Kindle Frederik Pohl Ö The Cool War MOBI Þ The Cool Epub / Ö cool book, The Cool book, The Cool War PDF/EPUBI like Frederik Pohl but by his standards this book was pretty lightweight It's set in the not too distant future where there is a cool war between East and West In it the spies merely try to irritate each other in order to sow chaos Amusing but just barelyHornswell Hake a Unitarian minister referred to as Horny throughout the book is recruited by the Team the post CIA spy agency to unwittingly create chaotic events throughout the world in travels they send him on Sadly he's a bit of a bumbling fool constantly being played by either the Team or their enemies who also try to recruit him to their side to fight the Team Th
