Beschreibung von Audible

Editors Select, October 2016 - While I'm not usually a fan of audio accessorizing (background noises, artful static, music, etc.), the physical versions of Kristoff and Kaufman's two ambitious novels (of which Gemina is the second) feel more like graphic novels than standard books, even though they don't have pictures. The text is arranged artfully and almost becomes the pictures. With such visual intricacy, clearly these books demand extra audio care. And in both works the audio producers have done a remarkable job of responding to the physical nature of the books, creating a fully immersive "found object" experience. As with Illuminae, the complex story took me about 30 minutes of serious concentration to slide into, but then BAM, I was hooked. —Emily, Audible Editor

Inhaltsangabe

Brace yourself for Gemina — the highly anticipated sequel to the book critics called “out-of-this-world awesome,” — featuring journal illustrations by best-selling author Marie Lu!   

Moving to a space station at the edge of the galaxy was always going to be the death of Hanna's social life. Nobody said it might actually get her killed. 

The sci-fi saga that began with the breakout best seller Illuminae continues onboard the Jump Station Heimdall, where two new characters will confront the next wave of the BeiTech assault. 

Hanna is the station captain's pampered daughter, Nik the reluctant member of a notorious crime family. But while the pair are struggling with the realities of life aboard the galaxy's most boring space station, little do they know that Kady Grant and the Hypatia are headed right toward Heimdall, carrying news of the Kerenza invasion. 

When an elite BeiTech strike team invades the station, Hanna and Nik are thrown together to defend their home. But alien predators are picking off the station residents one by one, and a malfunction in the station's wormhole means the space-time continuum might be ripped in two before dinner. Soon Hanna and Nik aren't just fighting for their own survival; the fate of everyone on the Hypatia - and possibly the known universe - is in their hands. 

But relax. They've totally got this. They hope. 

Once again told through a compelling dossier of emails, IMs, classified files, transcripts, and schematics, Gemina raises the stakes of the Illuminae Files, hurling listeners into an enthralling new story that will leave them breathless. 

Narrated by Carla Corvo, MacLeod Andrews, Steve West, Erik Davies, Lisa Cordileone, and a full cast.

Not as gripping as I hoped for

The story was too predictable for my taste. And I am way too old and wise (?) to enjoy teen love stories. The audio production value is absolutely great however and saved the day. The book ends with a cliffhanger. I will not take the plunge for the 3rd book of the trilogy.

Hörbüch- Kunst! Absolut empfehlenswert!

Nach sehr vielen gehörten Hörbüchern ist das meine erste Rezension, da diese Serie alles was ich bisher auf Audible konsumiert habe in den Schatten stellt. Großartige Sprecher, fesselnde Geschichte, super Effekte. Ein wahres Gesammtkunstwerk. Könnte ich mehr als 5 Sterne vergeben, würde ich das tun.

Good but not as good as the first one

I really liked the first one. Gripping story, intriguing characters and interesting motivations. Compared to that, this second one is not even in the same league. I liked some of the performances very much and he structure of storytelling remains unique and engaging. So it is still ok, but regarding the story they went full Disney's "Pretty Teens Save the Galaxy", complete with cheap ending. In my opinion, an A.I. is the most interesting character in this story, which should speak volumes about the rest. When it comes to diversity, giving every disposable side character an exotic name does not mitigate the fact that almost every important character is mainstream attractive and very white American. Also, the fake accent of one of the protagonists is unbearable.

Mindestens so gut wie Teil 1

Warum? Weil Hanna kräftig austeilt und ich "Aliens" nicht so gruselig finde wie "Zombies". Ich war ein bisschen skeptisch, ob der Nachfolger mit Teil 1 mithalten kann oder ob einem alles irgendwie bekannt vorkommt, bin aber restlos begeistert und freue mich schon auf Teil 3. Es war wieder von Anfang bis Ende spannend.

Für alle die es bereits gehört haben:
Das Einzige was ich nicht verstanden habe war, warum Nik sich erst so spät an die eine wichtige Sache erinnert, an der er vor dem Überfall beteiligt war.

This just keeps getting better!

I read Gemina as soon as it came out and now listened to it before starting with the third and final book in the series, Obsidio. This was every bit as amazing as the first time.
