    Inhaltsangabe

    "Wil Wheaton narrates this space opera full of political intrigue and charismatic characters. The young Emperox Grayland II does not have an easy task ahead. The Interdependency is in jeopardy due to the collapse of various planets in the empire. Powerful families are looking out for their own interests, even if that means killing their enemies and threatening the empire. Wheaton delivers an expressive narration using a humorous tone when needed and employing his acting talent to bring the characters to life. This audiobook is a treat not only for Wheaton's fans but also for anyone who is into well-written science fiction." (AudioFile magazine) 

    The Consuming Fire - the sequel to the 2018 Hugo Award Best Novel finalist and 2018 Locus Award-winning The Collapsing Empire - an epic space-opera novel in the best-selling Interdependency series, from the Hugo Award-winning and New York Times best-selling author John Scalzi.

    The Interdependency, humanity’s interstellar empire, is on the verge of collapse. The Flow, the extra-dimensional conduit that makes travel between the stars possible, is disappearing, leaving entire star systems stranded. When it goes, human civilization may go with it - unless desperate measures can be taken.  

    Emperox Grayland II, the leader of the Interdependency, is ready to take those measures to help ensure the survival of billions. But nothing is ever that easy. Arrayed before her are those who believe the collapse of the Flow is a myth - or at the very least, an opportunity that can allow them to ascend to power.  

    While Grayland prepares for disaster, others are preparing for a civil war, a war that will take place in the halls of power, the markets of business and the altars of worship as much as it will take place between spaceships and battlefields. The Emperox and her allies are smart and resourceful, but then so are her enemies. Nothing about this power struggle will be simple or easy...and all of humanity will be caught in its widening gyre.

    Space opera at its finest

    Let me begin this review in an unusual manner by stating that I read philosophical works about the future of AI, popular science explanations of astrophysics, biographies of mathematicians, actors, and politicians, and other material not related to my core expertise (autonomous systems, that is) that I find interesting. In short, I like to think of myself as someone with some degree of intellectual sophistication.

    That being said, when I reach out for entertainment, I want to be entertained. For instance, somewhere in the third volume, I gave up on Game of Thrones, since George R. R. Martin manages to put the good guys through a never-ending succession of misery and cruelty without any reasonable reprieve. I for my part don't feel entertained by works of fiction that remind me of how unjust and cruel life can be, and often is.

    In The Consuming Fire, John Scalzi creates several potential George R. R. Martin moments, but unlike Martin, Scalzi raises the tension in his story arc without breaking it. He knows his reader's critical moments where a reprieve must be offered, and he perfectly masters the delicate balance between the suspense that keeps one clinging to his words, and giving his readers the entertainment they're seeking by escaping into his worlds of fiction.

    In other words, where Martin fails, Scalzi delivers outstanding entertainment.

    Scalzi at it‘s best

    I loved the old men‘s war series and was sceptical at first, when I read about his new trilogy. Especially about the whole empire setting. What I love about Scalzis books are the reasonable characters, which are a rare treat in scifi. Of course Scalzis figures also make mistakes and get in trouble. But not because of their own obvious stupidity or the lag of planing or good processes. I was worried that a royalty-empire setting could compromise this. But quite the opposite! The characters are awesome and I have listened to many scenes, especially with dialogues multiple times because they are just so much fun. Wil Wheaton also is just perfect for Scalzis Characters! I didn’t know before that he speaks audiobooks and now I am specifically looking for books, spoken by him. I seldom give 5 stars for anything, but this book absolutely deserve them. Absolute recommendation!

    Masterpiece

    This is not just another audio book, this is art! Will Wheaton is fantastic, the story is very good and Scalzi's writing style is amazing. Wheaton brings the characters to live like no one else.
    It's interesting how Scalzi improves his writing from one book to the next.

    Kinda OK für Hollywood fans

    Ich habe "Kollaps" in der deutschen Fassung bei Audible gehört und sehr genossen. Darauffolgend hatte ich mich sehr gefreut den zweiten Teil der Serie weiter zu hören aber ich war leider etwas enttäuscht. Die Geschichte ist zwar unterhaltsam und es hat gewissermaßen Spaß gemacht aber zumindest diese Version auf Englisch mit Will Wheaton als Sprecher... na ja..man muss das schon mögen wenn jedes zweite Wort mit "F" anfängt. Ich weiß nicht ob Scalzi das so wirklich geschrieben hat oder ob das die "Interpretation" vom Herr Wheaton ist aber ich fand das sehr abtörnernd. Also wer amerikanischen "pop" Stil mag, wird wahrscheinlich das Buch "gut" finden. Man hat das Gefühl, dass man gerade eine Hollywood Produktion schaut.

    Darüber hinaus fand ich dass Herr Scalzi hat das Potential der Geschichte nicht wirklich völlig ausgenutzt.. (evtl. spoiler alert:) am Ende zaubert er ein Endung aus den nichts und es kommt einem gezwungen und verdummt. Na gut... Es ist allerdings kein schlechtes Buch und man kann die Zeit damit vertreiben aber ich muss nicht unbedingt das dritte Buch kaufen ehrlich gesagt.

    If you heard/read book 1, nothing more to say

    Then you know that this is a great series, and that the second book is at least as good as the first, maybe even surpasses it. If you didn't read/listen to book 1, do it now. 5/5 would recommend both.
