    Inhaltsangabe

    Winner of the 2016 Hugo Award for Best Novel
    Book 1 in the double Hugo-Award-winning trilogy
    A New York Times Notable Book
    Shortlisted for the World Fantasy, Nebula, Kitschies, Audie and Locus Awards
    The inaugural Wired.com book club pick

    This is the way the world ends...for the last time. 

    It starts with the great red rift across the heart of the world, spewing ash that blots out the sun.

    It starts with death, with a murdered son and a missing daughter. 

    It starts with betrayal, and long dormant wounds rising up to fester.

    This is the Stillness, a land long familiar with catastrophe, where the power of the earth is wielded as a weapon. And where there is no mercy.

    The Broken Earth trilogy is complete - beginning with The Fifth Season, continuing in The Obelisk Gate (Winner of the 2017 Hugo Award for Best Novel) and concluding with The Stone Sky (Shortlisted for the 2018 Hugo Award for Best Novel).

    PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

    Fesselnde Geschichte, Geniale Erzählerin

    Ich muss mich hier einfach mal über Robin Miles auslassen.

    Bei Hörbüchern erwarte ich zumindest kompetentes Vorlesen. Es hängt unter anderem von dem Stoff des Hörbuchs ab, aber Vorlesen können sollte jeder.

    Frau Miles allerdings? Sie liest nicht vor, sie *erzählt* die Geschichte wie es ein Erzähler tut, mit Seufzern und Lauten, welche den Inhalt des Buches in eine Weise vermitteln, der ans Herz geht. Die abgewürgte Stimme der Hauptperson, wie sie von ihrem Leid erzählt, klingt durch den Text und bleibt an einem hängen. Das letzte Mal habe ich so eine fesselnde Erzählung von Rupert Degas gehört. Einfach wunderbar.

    Und falls es nicht klar war: die Geschichte und Handlung des Buches ist ebenfalls erstklassig und hat zu recht ihren Hugo bekommen.

    Amazing novel

    Amazing story, very well written. Fantastic world building and characterisation. Complex world and nuanced discussions of oppression. Jemisin deserves all the praise she's been getting and more. Reading voice is well chosen and easy to listen to.

    what a waste of time

    So i made it to almost the end of the book.
    What a waste of time!
    This whole story is no better than an instance of a fantasy computer game.
    In fact i would have bet that it's based on a fantasy game if i wouldn't know better.
    There are these different races living on earth just like the different races that you can choose from at the beginning of a game. And each has different abilities of course.
    That's just so ordinary.
    And then: A magician with ten rings has ten times more power than a magician with only one ring, being able to affect targets in much bigger of a distance and, oh how surprising that is.
    Oh look, it's earth-magic, not just magic magic. How impressingly innovative.
    Jemisin is actually not a bad writer, so i kept thinking, that this might in fact turn into something special.
    Fail.
    I will now do, what i usually do, when a book is a waste of time.
    I will simply put it away, right before it ends.

    There is nothing I liked in this story

    After all the good ratings and praise I listened to the audiobook just a little longer than I otherwise might have. At the beginning of chapter 9 I gave up. There is absolutely nothing about this book I can even remotely like. I don't like the narrating style and I cannot connect to any of the characters. The discovery of the node maintainer was the death stab to my goodwill.

    Struggled to finish, whiney characters

    Characters mostly pissed off and contrarian, don't communicate. Questions don't get answered, two more parts.

    not enough action for my taste

    thr intro part was too long for me and after 3 chapters stopped listening. I also found the names used for everything in thos book hard to memorize and associate with the characters.

    Great and unique worldbuilding - interesting story

    Apart from the cliffhanger ending, there's not much to complain about. The world and its lore are rich and believable, the characters fleshed out and sympathetic and the narration brings it all to life beautifully.
