    Avis de l'équipe

    Editors Select, October 2016 - While I'm not usually a fan of audio accessorizing (background noises, artful static, music, etc.), the physical versions of Kristoff and Kaufman's two ambitious novels (of which Gemina is the second) feel more like graphic novels than standard books, even though they don't have pictures. The text is arranged artfully and almost becomes the pictures. With such visual intricacy, clearly these books demand extra audio care. And in both works the audio producers have done a remarkable job of responding to the physical nature of the books, creating a fully immersive "found object" experience. As with Illuminae, the complex story took me about 30 minutes of serious concentration to slide into, but then BAM, I was hooked. —Emily, Audible Editor

    Description

    Brace yourself for Gemina — the highly anticipated sequel to the book critics called “out-of-this-world awesome,” — featuring journal illustrations by best-selling author Marie Lu!   

    Moving to a space station at the edge of the galaxy was always going to be the death of Hanna's social life. Nobody said it might actually get her killed. 

    The sci-fi saga that began with the breakout best seller Illuminae continues onboard the Jump Station Heimdall, where two new characters will confront the next wave of the BeiTech assault. 

    Hanna is the station captain's pampered daughter, Nik the reluctant member of a notorious crime family. But while the pair are struggling with the realities of life aboard the galaxy's most boring space station, little do they know that Kady Grant and the Hypatia are headed right toward Heimdall, carrying news of the Kerenza invasion. 

    When an elite BeiTech strike team invades the station, Hanna and Nik are thrown together to defend their home. But alien predators are picking off the station residents one by one, and a malfunction in the station's wormhole means the space-time continuum might be ripped in two before dinner. Soon Hanna and Nik aren't just fighting for their own survival; the fate of everyone on the Hypatia - and possibly the known universe - is in their hands. 

    But relax. They've totally got this. They hope. 

    Once again told through a compelling dossier of emails, IMs, classified files, transcripts, and schematics, Gemina raises the stakes of the Illuminae Files, hurling listeners into an enthralling new story that will leave them breathless. 

    Narrated by Carla Corvo, MacLeod Andrews, Steve West, Erik Davies, Lisa Cordileone, and a full cast.

    Amazing

    The audiobook is performed by an entire talented cast that did an outstanding job. The sound effects added a whole other dimension to the book. I recommand reading the physical book while listening to the audiobook to enjoy the full experience of this story. This is definitely one of the best books I have ever read !

    Nonstop roller coaster ride

    If you could sum up Gemina in three words, what would they be?

    Epic Space Opera.

    What did you like best about this story?

    The different points of view.

    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Lots of weight and immediacy.

    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Don't Blink.

    Any additional comments?

    Nice mix of young adult romance with epic space battles done in a documentary style with a touch of Game of Thrones.

    Ehhh

    So I really enjoyed illuminae (the first book in the series) however I found it really hard to grasp the story line in Gemina. I was about to give up on the book, but I kept going to give it a chance. The first three hours were realllly hard to keep listening- I’d roll my eyes at how non eventful the storyline was... it was almost like I was listening to someone tell me something so unimportant for 3 hours. It started to pick up and was “ok” until 2 hours when the story was almost over. That’s when it was most interesting .... 2 hours before the story ended... on a 12 -1/2 hr book. Pretty disappointed, had higher hopes for this.

    Uhm, Yes.

    This book? Messed. Me. Up. I don't usually like books this...dark? But this series is fascinating. Brilliant. I freaking loved Ella after the second time she comes up. Books haven't been able to impress me, or surprise me in a long time, and this book, and "Illuminae" have done both. Also, the audio cast is pretty boss.

    Die Hard meets Aliens meets Home Alone

    I don’t know what kind of dust Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff use, but it’s grade A Breaking Bade blue level Sh!¥! How they come up with these plot lines and tie them all together is just insane. Fantastic, but insane! As I’ve said about book 1, this is Expanse level sci-if.

    Most sequels will focus on the characters from the previous book. Either trying to deepen the characters by showing them in new situations. Gemina, invents an entirely new cast of characters and makes them just as important to the story as everyone in book 1. Then neatly ties it all together in a way that both makes sense and makes you stop and cheer.

    The cast, once again, does an amazing job of bringing this book to life.

    My only complaint is, stop with the bleeping of curse words. This just in, people curse. It’s a fact of life. It doesn’t matter if you stub your toe, get shot, or spill red wine on your rug. An expletive is going to leave your mouth, and it’s not going to be howdy doody. I’ve listened to so many books where every other word was an f-bomb or curse, The way it’s done in these books is just f-ing annoying!

    Meh!

    This was not my style of storytelling. Weird background effects, reverb on voices, made up sound effects, bleeping out swearing, weird radio dicipline. Weird uncalled for double/repeat of timeline. A cast that sometimes sounded a bit almost bored or forced in their performance... I honestly dont understand why I kept listening, except the obviously inflated reviews here made me hope for something that never came. Dont get this one.

    Good story - long winded presentation

    I like the story but the endless repetition of unnecessary @heimdalonboard, etc just gets boring. Very good use of the medium so it's more of a radio play than a spoken book.

    Great read.

    Lots of fun. I loved all the multidimensional paradox stuff. I thought Hanna sounded a bit snobby, but I suppose that's how she was supposed to sound.

    I couldn't put it down. Story epic. sound effects realistic. And characters unforgettable. Overall it was a roller coaster ride. I can't wait for book 3 !

    Mindestens so gut wie Teil 1

    Warum? Weil Hanna kräftig austeilt und ich "Aliens" nicht so gruselig finde wie "Zombies". Ich war ein bisschen skeptisch, ob der Nachfolger mit Teil 1 mithalten kann oder ob einem alles irgendwie bekannt vorkommt, bin aber restlos begeistert und freue mich schon auf Teil 3. Es war wieder von Anfang bis Ende spannend.
    --------------
    Für alle die es bereits gehört haben:
    Das Einzige was ich nicht verstanden habe war, warum Nik sich erst so spät an die eine wichtige Sache erinnert, an der er vor dem Überfall beteiligt war.

    Hörbüch- Kunst! Absolut empfehlenswert!

    Nach sehr vielen gehörten Hörbüchern ist das meine erste Rezension, da diese Serie alles was ich bisher auf Audible konsumiert habe in den Schatten stellt. Großartige Sprecher, fesselnde Geschichte, super Effekte. Ein wahres Gesammtkunstwerk. Könnte ich mehr als 5 Sterne vergeben, würde ich das tun.

    Not as gripping as I hoped for

    The story was too predictable for my taste. And I am way too old and wise (?) to enjoy teen love stories. The audio production value is absolutely great however and saved the day. The book ends with a cliffhanger. I will not take the plunge for the 3rd book of the trilogy.

    Good but not as good as the first one

    I really liked the first one. Gripping story, intriguing characters and interesting motivations. Compared to that, this second one is not even in the same league. I liked some of the performances very much and he structure of storytelling remains unique and engaging. So it is still ok, but regarding the story they went full Disney's "Pretty Teens Save the Galaxy", complete with cheap ending. In my opinion, an A.I. is the most interesting character in this story, which should speak volumes about the rest. When it comes to diversity, giving every disposable side character an exotic name does not mitigate the fact that almost every important character is mainstream attractive and very white American. Also, the fake accent of one of the protagonists is unbearable.

    This just keeps getting better!

    I read Gemina as soon as it came out and now listened to it before starting with the third and final book in the series, Obsidio. This was every bit as amazing as the first time.
