    Inhaltsangabe

    The Last Emperox is the thrilling conclusion to the award-winning, New York Times and USA Today best-selling Interdependency series, an epic space opera adventure from Hugo Award-winning author John Scalzi.

    The collapse of The Flow, the interstellar pathway between the planets of the Interdependency, has accelerated. Entire star systems - and billions of people - are becoming cut off from the rest of human civilization. This collapse was foretold through scientific prediction...and yet, even as the evidence is obvious and insurmountable, many still try to rationalize, delay and profit from, these final days of one of the greatest empires humanity has ever known.

    Emperox Grayland II has finally wrested control of her empire from those who oppose her and who deny the reality of this collapse. But "control" is a slippery thing, and even as Grayland strives to save as many of her people form impoverished isolation, the forces opposing her rule will make a final, desperate push to topple her from her throne and power, by any means necessary. Grayland and her thinning list of allies must use every tool at their disposal to save themselves, and all of humanity. And yet it may not be enough.

    Will Grayland become the savior of her civilization...or the last emperox to wear the crown?

    lazy writing

    huge parts of this book were hard to enjoy: an omniscient narrator tells every thought of the acting characters, full of profanities, that are seemingly inserted to fill pages. on top the author describes thought processes, that seem foreign to the author himself, so the overall story becomes even less relatable. I had to pause listening several times.

    big fizzle.

    I think the author got bored with this story. it kind of just fizzles out without much happening. Quite disappointing really.

    Disappointing

    To let a very important character die in just a few minor sentences to create a sudo deus ex machina for ending a book isn't really good writing in my opinion.
    Also there is too much third person narrator stuff and too less actual stuff happening with actual dialog and interaction in the book.
    Alltogether it felt like a short story with not much actual happened in the end, beside the sudden forced part at the very end. Just like it was just done to finish the book already.
    It feels like the book was supposed to be much longer.
    It really feels unfinished and hastley put together.

    Tough it out

    After the first hour I stopped listening and considered returning this book to audible. And the reason for that: it was an almost uninterrupted surge of profanities and shouting and threats by not-so-nice-people, all of them voiced by Wil Wheaton who thus also was a huge disappointment.

    But after a three-months-pause I continued listening. And the story came back on track, re-joined the arc from the first two books and became more and more gripping as it progressed towards the finale. And since quote a lot of other characters reappeared Wil Wheaton´s narrative also achieved its normal/excellent level.

    So my advise to listeners: tough it out. In the end this is an intelligent and moving tale. But for those who do not know the first two books yet: get them first, otherwise you will be totally confused.

    Mediocre ending

    Instead of writing an epic story about the handling of society with the collapse the author takes the short cut.

    Very boring

    Nothing is happening in this book. Instead of writing bloated three books, John Scalzi should have written one book. If you remove all obscenities, intercourse descriptions and loudly spoken reasoning about quite simple matters, almost nothing remains. I have waited until the half of the book was finished. Nothing has happened so far. Pity of my time. At least I can return this book and get my credits back.

    Speaker always sounds annoyed.

    Speaker always sounds annoyed, which quickly becomes annoying and kinda forces a certain interpretation of the characters.

    Back to full

    The Interdependency cycle in full blossom again. The witful or spiteful or profane characters we all know and love in their sneaky, twisted and sometimes outright crazy musings. Fast and hilarious dialogues included. And Wil Wheaton again perfectly nails it and gives the whole thing the double punch, which makes me even forgive for a somewhat disney-ish ending. But boy, do they deserve it...

    Ok but somewhat disappointing...

    Wil Wheaton is doing great, again! I was really looking forward to this book but, well, how to put it, I was somewhat disappointed with the solution. There were so many possibilities - and in the end I was wondering about the many pages about fictious flow physics...that did not really contribute to the story and the finale...
    Ok, in a nutshell: the end of this trilogy is below the capabilities of the author. Like it was written in a hurry. Sorry.
