Inhaltsangabe

When the Yellowstone supervolcano erupts, it's up to six college students and their experimental physics project to prevent the end of civilization.

When an experiment to study quantum uncertainty goes spectacularly wrong, physics student Bill Rustad and his friends find that they have accidentally created an inter-dimensional portal. They connect to Outland - an alternate Earth with identical geology, but where humans never evolved. The group races to establish control of the portal before the government, the military, or evildoers can take it away.  

Then everything changes when the Yellowstone supervolcano erupts in an explosion large enough to destroy civilization and kill half the planet. The team has just hours to get as many people as possible across to Outland before a lethal cloud of ash overwhelms them. 

Nothing has prepared the refugees for what they find - a world of few resources and unprecedented dangers. Somehow, they must learn to survive, because Outland may not just be a safe haven - it could be their new home.

Haarsträubend

Protagonisten verhalten sich so unglaublich unrealistisch naiv, dass es weh tut. Dumme Entscheidungen am laufenden Band. Manchmal wird damit meta kokettiert (wir sind nunmal noch Studenten), aber das macht es nicht besser. Emotionale Tiefe fehlt und der Autor stellt soziale Dynamiken so unbeholfen dar, dass es wirklich atemberaubend ist.

Another solid story.

Not on the level of the bobiverse, but entertaining enough. I'm curious where the author will take it in the sequels.

Absolute amazing book

I love this book, great speaker and really cool humor and jokes make it all feel like I'm part of it. I mean literally, it could be my brain living it. I couldn't stop listening to it. I can't wait for the next book, please hurry up Mr. Taylor :-)

What if...?

What would you do if you found a way to open a portal to another dimension?

The outbreak of a super volcano threatens the world.
Effects of the disaster are downplayed until it is too late.

Now the inventors try to rescue as many people as possible to the alternate world.

- no obviously stupid mistakes by the protagonists
- thought-through decisions
- dealing with revolutionary technology

- well read by Ray Porter
- there might be a book two

Did you like Wildside by Steven Gould? Than this is a book for you.

My new favorite author!

Once again, a nicely paced. Easy to follow. Nice and witty dialogues. Attractive even for NotSciFifans. Tension building all the way to the end. I could not stop to read. Character building while telling a captive story.

OKish...

Nice idea, but somehow this feels to be it. Story itself is quite linear with twist that sound like being calculated. Don't get me wrong, not a terrible book at all, but way below the possibilities.

as a fan of the bobiverse-trilogy

i've tried this book even as english is not my native language and it is fairly difficult to understand the details of an foreign language. But Ray Porter does a great job reading in a manner for us to understand everything.
Even if the story is completely different from the bob-books i had lots of fun reading it.
Nice work, Mr Taylor!

One of the best books I ever read

Honestly, no person can tell me Dennis E. Taylor isn't a talented Science Fiction Author. Scientifically researched, tense, just the right amount of romance and social interaction, believable world and characters, it's incredible what he managed to bring to paper. I can only recommend this book if you like Sci Fi. Can't wait for Book two.

Fun little distraction

If you are looking for a short, feel-good little sci-fi story, this will definitely do the trick. It is entertaining while it lasts, but ends a bit abruptly and probably won't occupy your memory for long.
