    Inhaltsangabe

    Ensign Andrew Dahl has just been assigned to the Universal Union Capital Ship Intrepid, flagship of the Universal Union since the year 2456. It’s a prestige posting, and Andrew is thrilled all the more to be assigned to the ship’s Xenobiology laboratory. Life couldn’t be better…until Andrew begins to pick up on the facts that (1) every Away Mission involves some kind of lethal confrontation with alien forces; (2) the ship’s captain, its chief science officer, and the handsome Lieutenant Kerensky always survive these confrontations; and (3) at least one low-ranked crew member is, sadly, always killed.

    Not surprisingly, a great deal of energy below decks is expended on avoiding, at all costs, being assigned to an Away Mission. Then Andrew stumbles on information that completely transforms his and his colleagues’ understanding of what the starship Intrepid really is…and offers them a crazy, high-risk chance to save their own lives.

    badly written, well narrated

    After the 100th time you hear Wil Wheaton read out aloud "Dahl said" in the audio book version of this book, you start realizing that while Wheaton is a good narrator, his material is somewhat sub par in the case of Scalzis "Red Shirt".

    "Dahl said"

    Good book, but...

    Its a good book but:
    Wheaton is only a mediocre voice actor and i almost lost my mind 'cause every dialog is annoyingly full of he saids and she saids.
    Are you aware of the fact, that a voice actor can show who is saying what by actual voice acting?

    A good story doesn't equal a good author

    I have yet to finish the book, but so far the story is rather amusing.

    The concept is nice and something new, but the writing style is atrocious.
    Not sure if it would be as noticeable in book form but when it is read it is garing.

    The worst part so far has been when two of the main characters talk early on

    x said....y said.....x said.....y said....x said....y said. Very rarely is there any differentiation from this pattern.
    Had the narrator been able to adapt his voice enough to differentiate between characters (which I'm sure he could have) and had he been allowed to leave out all the superflous "x said y said" I would be able to talk more indepth about smaller traits of the book.

    Overall this would make for a nice audioplay instead of a audiobook. Or a movie/black mirror episode

    Avoiding the Narrative

    At first things are not going well for the junior officers of the UUS Intrepid: they are trapped in a mad universe and programed to die as redshirts on away missions (being a ”Star Trek” insider is an essential perquisite to understand anything at all). The only advise they get is “Avoid the narrative!” something the author does too - hence a few hours of nothing but dialogs. The protagonist and the listener are on the verge of being completely annoyed and quitting, but then things change…

    The story really takes of as soon as the redshirts take their fate into their own hand and the result is just great. John Scalzi tops it by adding three codas and thereby giving it an emotional depth one would not have expected at first. Add to that Wil Wheaton as narrator – after all Wesely Crusher was a redshirt too…

    Nice little story

    enjoyable, well-crafted, fun narration.
    True, the "X said" is noticeable, but it fades out eventually.

    interesting enough story, awful narration

    Might still work for you, if you can either stand or ignore "X said", "Y said" following every second statement.

    Don't know if it's the books fault or the script for the audiobook, but Wil Wheaton basically butchers what could have been a nice entertaining listen while doing something else

    I look it up. it is actually the book / author. audiobook would be improved by giving the characters different voices and omitting the " X said" lines.

    Ja die Dialoge sind teilweise schlimm zu hören

    Ich kann den anderen Bewertungen nur zustimmen. Gerade am Anfang gibt es sehr unangenehm zu hörende Dialoge weil ständig ein x said, y said dazu geschoben wird. Unnötig, da man eigentlich auch so gut versteht, wer gerade spricht und wann der Sprecher wechselt. Selbst wenn mehr als 2 sprechen. Für mich wirkt es schlecht für Hörbuch geschrieben und so gut es noch geht gesprochen. Der Sprecher versucht schon die ganzen x said kurz, schnell und schwach zu sagen. Später fiel es mir weniger auf. Teilweise ist es vielleicht besser geschrieben, teilweise habe ich noch einfach dran gewöhnt. Die Geschichte ist dann interessant und kurzweilig. Nicht das beste was ich je gehört habe, aber nie langweilig. Die 3 Anhänge sind etwas schief. Einer ist ganz nett, und die Geschichte wird nochmal aus bestimmten Blickwinkeln behandelt, aber fühle sich teilweise dennoch etwa unnötig an. Insgesamt eine Empfehlung, man muss nur ein paar Dialoge mit mäßiger Schreibweise für ein Hörbuch aushalten.

    he said, she said

    I can't take it anymore... Every single dialog is filled with "he said", "she said". Please John Scalzi, learn to write dialog!

    They said "said" alot

    If you take a swig every time "x said" comes up, you'll die before the first chapter is over.

    Too much of Wil, perfect Story by John

    The only thing I like about Wil is his youtube channel about tabletop games. Placing him, a Star Trek Actor, to read a book that, in general, is a Star Trek spin-off, is not much more than a merchandising trick. Yes, there are Star Trek Actors (or the more - voices) that do an awesome job reading books, but Wil is not such one. The whole book is read with the same pitch, its difficult to separate characters from each other, and sometimes he seems to find more joy in hearing his own voice goind down down down than to adjust to the currenct situation the story is in. Theres more to a story teller than having a deep voice.

    That set apart - a story about the red shirts of star trek is quite funny! There are so many ideas on how to exploit being a red shirt, so many implications... its simply funny to listen! Mr Scalzi, once more, good stuff of an old man ;) thank you for funny 7 hours.
