Inhaltsangabe

Dennis E. Taylor, author of the best-selling Bobiverse trilogy, explores a whole different, darker world in this sci-fi stand-alone. Determined to give his wife and children a better life back home, Ivan Pritchard ventures to the edge of known space to join the crew of the Mad Astra as an asteroid miner. He's prepared for hard work and loneliness—but not the unthinkable. After coming into contact with a mysterious alien substance, Pritchard finds an unwelcome entity sharing his mind, and a disturbing physical transformation taking place. With his very humanity at stake, Pritchard must save mankind from a full-scale interstellar war.

Brought to life by prolific, award-winning narrator Ray Porter, The Singularity Trap is a thrilling adventure rife with drama and action on a truly cosmic scale.

Kritikerstimmen

“Dennis Taylor serves up a top-notch outer-space adventure…. Ray Porter’s narration is simply brilliant…. In addition to suspense, action, futuristic detail, and moments of comedy, the book brings a light, investigative touch to the question of what exactly human identity is.” (The Washington Post

Great. Even better than Legion.

Great story, convincing characters, interesting theme. As I was listening in Audible, the narrator was very good too.

brilliant and surprisingly accurate

so I'm not an expert on most of concepts but I dabble a lot in science. the computer side it very accurately portrait I as a programmer could identify with Ivan easily and agree with most of his decisions. he works his expertise into his conversations very fluently with makes his part of the story very coherent.
while there are some small criticism's I'll keep the review of the story short and not go into details about them its only some nitpicks.
If you are a science or computer nerd you will have a blast with the story, but even people who have no clue about the portrait concepts will enjoy this a lot!

Ray Porter does an amazing job with his tone in this, he was never off the mark and conveyed emotions perfectly. I'm still only giving 4 stars because I'm used to a more cinematic style of reading, with giving the characters more distinct voices, I missed that a bit here even though it was not necessary

Für mich zum einschlafen

Sprecher verständlich und macht seinen Job gut.

Die Story selbst ist leider das Problem, hier zündet es sehr lange bis gar nicht. Das Buch möchte sich eher philosiphisch mit ein paar Themen auseinander setzten, scheitert jedoch kläglich.

A bit rushed

Nice narrative but muddled in places and with an increasing feeling of the story being rushed towards the end of the book. Taylor leaves many of the most interesting ideas wholly unexplored. With more planning and the willingness to slow down the progression of events in favor of developing concepts and characters, the book could have easily been twice as long without losing any of its appeal. This is the first book by Dennis E Taylor where I wished that another, perhaps more competent author such as Neal Stephenson had written it.

Story good to follow and interesting thoughts

But not much suspense. Still, Sci-fi fans that ran out of new stuff will like this.
