    Inhaltsangabe

    Hugo Award-winning author John Scalzi returns to his best-selling Old Man's War universe with The End of All Things, the direct sequel to 2013's The Human Division.

    Humans expanded into space...only to find a universe populated with multiple alien species bent on their destruction. Thus was the Colonial Union formed, to help protect us from a hostile universe. The Colonial Union used the Earth and its excess population for colonists and soldiers. It was a good arrangement...for the Colonial Union. Then the Earth said: no more.

    Now the Colonial Union is living on borrowed time - a couple of decades at most before the ranks of the Colonial Defense Forces are depleted and the struggling human colonies are vulnerable to the alien species who have been waiting for the first sign of weakness to drive humanity to ruin. And there's another problem: a group, lurking in the darkness of space, playing human and alien against each other - and against their own kind - for their own unknown reasons.

    In this collapsing universe, CDF Lieutenant Harry Wilson and the Colonial Union diplomats he works with race against the clock to discover who is behind attacks on the Union and on alien races, to seek peace with a suspicious, angry Earth, and to keep humanity's union intact...or else risk oblivion and extinction - and the end of all things.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "Tavia Gilbert and William Dufris are disarmingly genial as they trade off narrating chapters. Gilbert, in particular, manages to convey a bird-like alien perfectly in her section, and Dufris is fully believable even as a disembodied brain in control of a spaceship." ( AudioFile)

    A Mixed Bag

    Like its predecessor “The Human Division” this is a collection of short stories: some good, some Mediocre and (the first) one brilliant.

    The narration is mixed too: those told from a female POV are told by Tavia Gilbert who gives a very fine performance, the others are performed by William Dufris. The author presented him with tales full of the tongue-in-cheek-humor that IMHO is John Scalzi’s trademark and he performs brilliantly.

    All in all I liked this audiobook, but I guess I can forego to buy it in print as well.

    Horrible female voice

    While the narrative is between passable and enjoyable, the way Tavia Gilbert is rouining the story with her horrible performance, is really dragging the experience down. I can't help but wonder if she ever even bothered to listen to Mr. Dufri's version of the featured characters at all or, if she did, what made her think: "Ah, screw it, I make my own thing." I will make sure to avoid further books with her involvement.

    Sadly they changed the Reader.

    I got used to the original Reader and enjoyed his flow. The new Reader is not that bad, her voice just doesn't fit the story.
