Inhaltsangabe

Darrow is a Red, a member of the lowest caste in the color-coded society of the future. Like his fellow Reds, he works all day, believing that he and his people are making the surface of Mars livable for future generations. Yet he spends his life willingly, knowing that his blood and sweat will one day result in a better world for his children. But Darrow and his kind have been betrayed. Soon he discovers that humanity reached the surface generations ago. Vast cities and sprawling parks spread across the planet.

Darrow - and Reds like him - are nothing more than slaves to a decadent ruling class. Inspired by a longing for justice, and driven by the memory of lost love, Darrow sacrifices everything to infiltrate the legendary Institute, a proving ground for the dominant Gold caste, where the next generation of humanity's overlords struggle for power. He will be forced to compete for his life and the very future of civilization against the best and most brutal of Society's ruling class. There, he will stop at nothing to bring down his enemies...even if it means he has to become one of them to do so.

Fantastic Narrator, real fun story

This is a surprisingly well written book - even though the story is a string of clichés and the main character is a massive marry sue.
The narrator is also fantastic and a great fit for the material.
You won't find something to challenge your mind here - but you certainly won't be bored.

The Mockingjay is now a boy

The book is (technically) well written and the reader is among the best I've listened to so far.

However, this is just the dystopian story told in "The Hunger Games", but with a slightly different setting (Mars) and a male main character and therefore more descriptions of fights in any imaginable form.

If you're looking for an extremely well written "action adventure", this is for you. If you would prefer a story including an analysis of the underlying social structures and the resulting consequences, look somewhere else.

I don't think I'll give the second book a try.

Inspirierend

Spannend, intelligent und gut geschrieben fesselt dieses Buch bis zum Schluss und zwingt einen, weiter zu hören. Auch der Sprecher passt hervorragend - ein Hörerlebnis, das Seinesgleichen sucht, besonders in diesem Genre.

Very good Audiobook - Clear Recommemdation

A Little Bit of a boring Start but after 20Minutes or so the Story starts to really capture the Listener until the very end.

I am looking forward to Part 2

An average book - but I kinda want to read on

The narrator wasn't brilliant but did a fantastic job. The book itself has a slow start but soon gains momentum and is told faster and more exiting. The book hinges around some ideas which are pretty unbelievable in my opinion. Many decisions done by the people in power in this story make no sense. Its like they really gave some thoughts in how to rule and then just did the opposite. Not even stupidity or disinterest in their subjects could explain this, and those people are described as superior in body and mind. But if logic problems don't annoy you like they annoy me you will get a nice experience after the first chapter.

Spannend, hart, gut.

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

Die Einteilung in "Farben" - also gewisse Kasten in der Gesellschaft - erscheint etwas unglaubwürdig, aber davon abgesehen ist die Geschichte packend, gut erzählt, realistisch und man fiebert mit. Ganz großes Kino!

As red as the planet

I took part in a book discussion of this book the other week. I'm not sure I'd have discovered it otherwise, but boy, am I glad that I did!. This has to be the best scifi story I've read (listened to) in quite some time! It has a dystopian touch, too. The characters are great, not predictable at any given time, and they develop, but not just in one direction. The idea, the plot, the pace, everything is perfect, and I really, really loved the narration. I was so drawn in that I immediately continued with the second volume in this trilogy, but I'll write more there.

Out of five stars I'd give six, for the book AND the narrator. I'm very impressed and can recommend this to every reader, you don't need to be a science fiction fan to enjoy this book, cause it is so much more than scifi.

Epic

This is simply one of the best series I have read in a long time. The story is epic, characters and the whole theme of the universe simply fantastic. It starts off a little slow, but get's pace quickly, so just hold your horses through the mines.

The best book of the series is part 2, "Golden Son". There are scenes of such epic proportions in this book, you will not believe it until you read it. Glorious.

Fantastic!

Loved it! Every single plot point was satisfying, even when I could guess it in advance! Narrator had a convincing performance relaying the emotions of the main charactor, awesome book!
