Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he's alive - and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plainold "human error" are much more likely to kill him first.

Einer von wenigen Sci-Fi wo nicht nur die Geschichte, die Spannung, sondern auch der technische Hintergrund stimmt. Nichts weit hergeholt, das meiste möglich und nachvollziehbar mit heutiger Technik. Die Geschichte ansich ist so durchgehend nachvollziehbar und menschlich mit Witz, daher ist sie sicher auch für nicht Sci-Fi-Fans gut geeignet.

Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle, award-winning authors of such best sellers as Footfall and The Legacy of Heorot, return us to the Mote, and to the universe of Kevin Renner and Horace Bury, of Rod Blaine and Sally Fowler. There, 25 years have passed since humanity quarantined the mysterious aliens known as Moties within the confines of their own solar system. They have spent a quarter century analyzing and agonizing over the deadly threat posed by the only aliens mankind has ever encountered - a race divided into distinct biological forms, each serving a different function: Master, Mediator, Engineer, Warrior.

Somehow a little confusing in the beginning. A lot of characters not easy to distinguish from each other. Without reading the først book it would be impossible to understand the story. Still worth to listen to if one liked the first book. Nice ending.

The Mote In God's Eye is their acknowledged masterpiece, an epic novel of mankind's first encounter with alien life that transcends the genre. No lesser an authority than Robert A. Heinlein called it "possibly the finest science fiction novel I have ever read".

Amzing the plot, the fantasy, I loved it. As with most science fiction one can disagree with some details but it does not spoil the story. I hope there is coming a sequel.

When Ivan Pritchard signs on as a newbie aboard the Mad Astra, it's his final, desperate stab at giving his wife and children the life they deserve. He can survive the hazing of his crewmates, and how many times, really, can near-zero g make you vomit? But there's another challenge looming out there, in the farthest reaches of human exploration, that will test every man, woman and AI on the ship - and will force Ivan to confront the very essence of what makes him human.

Jazz Bashara is a criminal. Well, sort of. Life on Artemis, the first and only city on the moon, is tough if you're not a rich tourist or an eccentric billionaire. So smuggling in the occasional harmless bit of contraband barely counts, right? Not when you've got debts to pay and your job as a porter barely covers the rent. Everything changes when Jazz sees the chance to commit the perfect crime, with a reward too lucrative to turn down.

The Ruhar hit us on Columbus Day. There we were, innocently drifting along the cosmos on our little blue marble, like the Native Americans in 1492. Over the horizon came ships of a technologically advanced, aggressive culture, and BAM! There went the good old days, when humans got killed only by each other. So, Columbus Day. It fits. When the morning sky twinkled again, this time with Kristang starships jumping in to hammer the Ruhar, we thought we were saved.

The first halv drags a little and I was almost getting bored with all the military jargon. But than it happened... The author takes his time to get the reader settled with the military thinking behind the fun. I liked the book and could often not stop reading. Especially the second half. The book could stand totally for itself. It could even been divided in three different storys/episodes. I am looking forward to the next one!

Die große Biografie eines Universalgenies. Andrea Wulf vergegenwärtigt das pralle Leben des Universalgenies Alexander von Humboldt und zeigt ihn als interdisziplinären Forscher sui generis. Natur wird bei Humboldt quasi neu erfunden: In ihrer ganzen Fülle als Lebensnetz, als moderne Ausgestaltung der wirkmächtigen Idee von der "great chain of being". Wulf macht deutlich, worin Humboldt seiner Zeit weit voraus war und unverändert wichtig bleibt.

Bob Johansson has just sold his software company and is looking forward to a life of leisure. There are places to go, books to read, and movies to watch. So it's a little unfair when he gets himself killed crossing the street. Bob wakes up a century later to find that corpsicles have been declared to be without rights, and he is now the property of the state. He has been uploaded into computer hardware and is slated to be the controlling AI in an interstellar probe looking for habitable planets.

Best-selling science fiction superstars Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle combine their talents with those of Steven Barnes in an extraordinary adventure of humankind’s first outpost in the farthest reaches of space. Light years from Earth, colonists land on a planet they name Avalon. It seems like a paradise - until native creatures savagely attack. It will take every bit of intelligence, courage, and military-style discipline to survive.

As good for newcomers as for old fans of Nivens univers. The authors managed to write a story which can stand totally for itself and is by no means repeating any old story or facts.
