Inhaltsangabe

"Wildly imaginative." (Barack Obama on The Three-Body Problem trilogy)

A new standalone military science fiction adventure from the New York Times best-selling and award-winning author of the Three-Body Trilogy. 

When Chen’s parents are incinerated before his eyes by a blast of ball lightning, he devotes his life to cracking the secret of the mysterious natural phenomenon. His search takes him to stormy mountaintops, an experimental military weapons lab, and an old Soviet science station.   

The more he learns, the more he comes to realize that ball lightning is just the tip of an entirely new frontier in particle physics. Although Chen’s quest provides a purpose for his lonely life, his reasons for chasing his elusive quarry come into conflict with soldiers and scientists who have motives of their own: a beautiful army major with an obsession with dangerous weaponry, and a physicist who has no place for ethical considerations in his single-minded pursuit of knowledge.  

Ball Lightning, by award-winning Chinese science fiction author Cixin Liu, is a fast-paced audiobook about what happens when the beauty of scientific inquiry runs up against a push to harness new discoveries with no consideration of their possible consequences.  

This program is read by Feodor Chin, voice of Zenyatta in Overwatch.

Not as expected

The story was flat and uneventful. The characters were deep but uninteresting. The performance did not make paying attention easy.

Ambivalent Reading

One has to have read "the three body problem" to know the scientific depth of Cixin Liu, who has become the MASTER of Arts in terms of Science and Fiction and the depth of a story.
Really NO ONE can beat his writing but he himself.
This story provides different level in one thread. Personal, political (besides political: he needs a war to keep the reason for research up, he always refers to "the enemy" but in the end he reveals it by stating the name of the ships of the enemy.. I don't know.. its a bit OFF)
Sometimes i just let the reader move on without real listening because the story rambles on.
Sometimes I am irritated by the behavior of the protagonists (and as usual I have problems to follow the story because of the Chinese names)
Sometimes suddenly the story grasps me and I am fully into it.
I never lost track, but the depth of the story and my being IN the story varies much.
Finally:
A good read, fun to follow, but not on the level of "The Threebody Problem"
The afterwords do make his intentions, thoughts and experiences which lead him here clear.
I think I will read this book again and then again.

A word on the reader:
He does a good job, very understandable for people with no native English listening comprehension.
Fun to listen to.

well spoken and the story at beginning is confusin

The speaker manages to give every character a unique voice. the story is a bit confusing because the author lays 3 layers of story telling. it is like peeling an onion. a friend telling a story a friend who had told. ... but it is manageable. I loved the additional explanations at the end in the afterword. where does science end and fiction start. in a good novel you won't know and here I had no clue at all.

Story for science addicts

the story is in two layers, one is the scifi part and one the layer looking om the ethical side of science and weapons. but the book keeps fascinating throughout the story, even in the more tranquile parts
