Inhaltsangabe

You think you know how the world works? Think again.

From best-selling author Neal Stephenson and critically acclaimed historical and contemporary commercial novelist Nicole Galland comes a captivating and complex near-future thriller that questions the very foundations of the modern world.

England, 1851.
The Great Exhibition at London's Crystal Palace has opened, celebrating the rise of technology and commerce. With it the power of magic - in decline since the industrial revolution began - is completely snuffed out. The existence of magic begins its gradual devolution into mere myth.

America, 21st century.
Magic has faded from the minds of mankind, until an encounter between Melisande Stokes, linguistics expert at Harvard, and Tristan Lyons, shadowy agent of government, leads to the uncovering of a distant past.
After translating a series of ancient texts, Melisande and Tristan discover the connection between science, magic and time travel, and so the Department of Diachronic Operations - D.O.D.O. - is hastily brought into existence. Its mission: to develop a device that will send their agents back to the past, where they can stop magic from disappearing and alter the course of history.

But when you interfere with the past, there's no telling what you might find in your future....

Written with the genius, complexity, and innovation that characterise all of Neal Stephenson's work, and steeped with the down-to-earth warmth and humour of Nicole Galland's storytelling style, this exciting and vividly realised work of science fiction will make you believe in the impossible and take you to places - and times - beyond imagining.

Full cast of narrators includes Robert Fass, James Foster, Tavia Gilbert, Arthur Morey, David Stifel, Charlie Thurston, and Kate Udall.

    "Good Story - Excess "Talk" in Audiobook Version"

    To start out on a positive note, the story is very clever and keeps you wondering until the end.
    It does, however, need to be abridged for audiobook listeners. Passages such as chat room transcripts and text message are tedious and boring to listen to when the narrator has to read the time, date and location of each post. Of course, this can all be skipped over when reading a physical copy of the book.

    The performers were excellent, although I did not like that some characters had different voices and accents throughout the story. It definitely threw me off! One reader would have been preferred.

    My takeaway: an interesting story that may be easier to read than to listen to.

    "Not comparable to three body at all"

    This book was sold to me as similar to the three body problem which is why I bought it. Although this book is entertaining, it is very very very far from the genius and scientific sophistication of the three body problem trilogy.
