Not the narrator's fault,

but there were a lot of songs in this one, and having them read flat out was not much fun at times...
Aside from that it was very well narrated.

It's a great story that had me hooked early on gripped me to the end. The slow corruption of a young man was very well done and believable.

Guter Krimi!

Die Handlung spannend, der Ausgang nicht vorhersehbar und die Charaktere gelungen - wieder eine richtig gute Löhnig!

Gelesen an sich auch sehr gut, nur die falsch (nicht münchnerisch) betonten Orte waren nervig, zum Glück waren es nicht allzu viele... (z.H. Harlaching, Nockherberg)

3,5 Sterne

Zum Hörbuch:
Erstens fand ich es sehr seltsam eine Geschichte die in erster Person von einer Frau erzählt wird von einem männlichen Sprecher erzählt zu bekommen, und gerade zu Anfangs waren die langen Listen mit Erhöhung von Skillpunkten ans Hörbuch wirklich nervig.
Der Sprecher fand ich an sich recht angenehm - nur seine Betonung des Wortes "okay" war mit der Zeit auch ein Punkt der mich innerlich seufzen lies...

Zum Buch
FLuchbrecher hat mir deutlich besser gefallen als das erste Buch der Askir Reihe. Man merkt beim Lesen deutlich dass der Autor mittlerweile bedeutend mehr Erfahrung im Schreiben hat, und gerade der Stil hat sich in meinen Augen deutlich verbessert.

Da ich selbst gerne spiele lese ich auch gerne LitRPG Genre und wurde hier nicht enttäuscht! Zu Anfang waren noch recht viele Info zu Stufenaufstiegen und Änderungen in den Talentbäumen zu lesen, aber mit der Zeit wurde das immer weniger und statt dessen lag der Fokus mehr und mehr auf der Geschichte - was auch sehr gut zur Story passt, da die Hauptfigur mehr und mehr in die virtuelle Realität abtaucht.

Was mich ab und an die Augen hat rollen lassen ist der Umgang mit Sexualität und wie Charaktere sich selbst beschreiben. Ab und an hatte ich das Gefühl da beschreibt ein 16 jähriger wie er vermutet dass Frauen denken... Auch die Dialoge waren teilweise etwas arg bemüht witzig zu sein und haben sich nicht immer ganz überzeugend angefühlt.
Abgesehen von diesen Punkten waren mir die Charaktere aber sympatisch und sind mir flott ans Herz gewachsen!

Die Story an sich hingegen hat mich durchweg gefesselt und ich habe das Buch in kürzester Zeit verschlungen.

Cute story, one peeve with the narration

I really enjoyed the story of this book. I also liked the setting of a nature reserve and all the tiny animals and plants!
The main characters were interesting enough to keep me engaged. I also liked the side characters, though some changed their ways a bit too often and quickly for my liking. But overall I really enjoyed spending time with them! The outcome of the love story was predictable from the very start, but I don't begrudge that in chick lit, which I read precisely for a happy ending and comfortable read! All in all I was well entertained and will definitely consider reading more by the same author.

My biggest problem with the book was the voice the narrator gave the male main protagonist. A very nasal sort of voice that made me dislike him instantly, and even though his actions might make him likable along the way, I was annoyed at him till the very end...
My other small gripe was the female main protagonist having a husky while working full time - and only when she's out even longer would a neighbour take care of him. Poor dog being home alone in the house most working days.

Story ok, but writing not for me

Way too much "as you know ...", too much "fat legs pumping" or "musician calves pushing" (not sure about the exact wordings, but you get my drift). Many "males" or "females" which felt annoying to me (even if you don't use the word women, why use "sandwiched between two angry females"?)
No actual sex scenes or actual romance at all, but a few too many comments off the sort "Different to the short bulky females he copulated with" or how tits graze the dusty floor I believe was the wording, and I've no idea why that would be important?
One characters name is used so much (instead of any "he did" or such) it drove me nuts, and I'll punch anyone who says that word on the next few days...

I think this can work for others, but it didn't work for me. At all.

Brilliant entertainment!

Anna McNuff is the opposite of me. Or rather she is who I wished I could be! Adventurous, open minded, happy to meet new people, and entertaining as all hell!

I listened to this whole book in more or less two sittings (or rather walkings) and I clicked with Anna right away. I loved spending time with her and being able to almost feel like I was on this adventure with her!

I am always a bit skeptical about authors reading their own books, as most authors don't make good narrators, but this one was so brilliant to listen to it actually made me write down a few thoughts instead of just rating like I usually do on audible.

100% recommendation from me!

Der Insasse ist neben "Die Blutschule" der Fitzek Titel der mir bisher am wenigsten gefallen hat.

Teile sind einfach eklig (Kindermörder, teilweise im Detail), und das ganze ist mir stellenweise zu weit her geholt. Super wahrscheinlich sind die Dinge in Thriller ja selten, aber hier musste ich des öfteren die Augenbrauen hoch ziehen.

Den Twist habe ich lange kommen sehen - wobei das sicher nur Lesern so geht die mit seinen Krimis vertraut sind.

Both story and narrator where good enough to keep me well entertained. The recording quality isn't so good though, especially at the start it sounds very hollow.

First book was ok, if not great. Very annoying sex scenes and really bad love story in book two made me give up on the series.

Great, fast paced and entertaining SciFi

One of my favorite reads (listens...) this year!

I listened to this one as audio book, and have read some parts of the ebook version. First off I must say that the narration is really, really excellent! I had some little troubles with it - mostly that there are some flashbacks that are easy to spot in the "actual book version" as they are written in italics. In the audio book you simply change from one scene into a flashback and go "what now? Where are we? What happened?". That doesn't happen to often, and dead people being around gives you a fast hint, so it didn't annoy me too much. The other problem I had with the audio was the names Isla and Ida being pronounced so similarly, that at some points I had the wrong people in a scene for a while before I noticed my mistake. You can tell them apart if you pay very close attention to the names, but I slipped a few times. But the brilliant voices, emotions, sarcasm and tone of the narrator more than made up for it, so this will be one of my favorite audios in the future.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

To the story itself:
The characters were what made this book work so well for me! Cassius is a great main character, sho is witty and sarcastic and actually tries to do the right thing, while still being able to be a ruthless killer if needed. In a way that is my favorite kind of character for an action packed book such as this!
There are also plenty of other great individuals I enjoyed spending time with. Isla, the bioroid (a sort of robot IA in a flesh and blood vessel is one of my favorites. But the female space ship captain who is over 200 years old was also a pleasure to read - and I'd have loved to join her crew, that consist mostly of mostly (ex-) criminals and all sorts of people who have things to hide. They all felt very real to me and I cared for what happened to them! I especially liked the spectrum that ranged from good to bad and everythign in between - and how some of them took a double turn along the way, when their real faces showed.

The first scene was a bit rough around the edges, but from chapter two onwards I was hooked body and soul. I devoured the whole book in just 3 days and couldn't get enough of it! The plot is a bit meandering, but all the little twists and turns and the betrayals and puzzle pieces you find along the way kept me well entertained. I'll pick the sequel up as soon as it hits audible, as I really need to know what happens next!

There is a lot of action in this one - and still it has some really great lines along the way too. I liked it being faced paced without feeling like a guilty pleasure. The prose was fluent and let me sink right into this story and actually be there next to the characters, joining them on their adventure.

My only (very little) gripe was with some intentionally funny things, like a common brand of sex toys "Sexy snow queen Isla from the children's movie" which is eerily like a movie princess called Elsa or a book character who is the protagonist of a wizard's school under siege by the Dark Lord... Those things are only mentioned a few times throughout the book so while it had me roll my eyes a bit instead of amusing me, it didnt really take away from my enjoyment of the story over all.

All in all this was a really awesome listen, that I can only wholeheartedly recommend!
