    Description

    "Narrators Caitlin Davies and Daniel Thomas May reprise their roles, and between them, they’ve once more captured the essence behind the voices of multiple characters, and even more impressively, this time there are non-humans thrown into the mix." (Bibliosanctum)

    Sue Burke's sweeping, award-finalist, SF Semiosis epic continues in Interference as the colonists and a team from Earth confront a new and more implacable intelligence.

    Over 200 years after the first colonists landed on Pax, a new set of explorers arrives from Earth on what they claim is a temporary scientific mission.

    But the Earthlings misunderstand the nature of the Pax settlement and its real leader. Even as Stevland attempts to protect his human tools, a more insidious enemy than the Earthlings makes itself known.

    Stevland is not the apex species on Pax.

    Solid sequel

    Not as great and surprising as the first book, but still a pretty good listen

    WTH..?

    What a ridiculous story. WTH?!
    These characters are bizarre and make no sense quite often. The botanists are idiots, the anthropologists are xenophobic and many of the characters on this research trip are racist, classist, crazy or just stupid! A lot of characters make stupid or random decisions that make no sense. The narration jumps around in the most random ways inside character's heads... a lot of random, free-expression ramblings... they make connections and use terms that somehow are meaningful. Most characters are negative and underhanded, glum and pessimistic, and they're otherwise angry and distrusting of everyone. What a strange author... narrators did a good job at least.

    if you enjoyed the first book, you'll love this.

    All I can say is I had a enjoyed this book even more than the first. It surprised me at times, and I enjoyed the technology used, as well as the problems with said technology. I can't wait for the third!

    Excellent Story and Performance

    I enjoyed this entire experience. I could barely stop, covering the entire length of the performance in just over two days.

    This book fulfills the promises of its predecessor. It gets more creative in the anthropology, and steps up the impressively subtle message about unconscious bias. Each chapter is in a different point of view, so we get six pictures of every character.

    The performances are stellar again. I'm glad the original narrators returned.

    Communities in space

    I think I liked this volume even better than I did the first volume. Having familiarized ourselves with the two intelligent species in Rainbow City besides the human colonists, we are slowly led to consider a couple of others over the course of this book, and by shifting point of view between the different parties come to understand something pretty deep about the idea of consciousness and species identity. There are now two groups of humans, the Pacifist colonists and the "Earthlings" who volunteered to investigate what became of the colony now that a couple hundred years have passed. They have diverged considerably in their social systems (though the dystopian tendencies of Earth cultures were already making themselves known at the time the first generation of Pacifists left), so they are properly two distinct collections. Midway though the book they mount a quick expedition to another inhabited continent on Pax where they encounter creatures which are the same and yet different from what they have come to know, giving rise to a number of questions about the origin of life on the planet. At the climax of the story there is violent strife between the different power centers in Rainbow City, and by this time I was able to sympathize with more than one of the points of view (although the one chief bad guy never really does anything to redeem himself much at all). Then, finally, in the epilogue there's another long jump in time, at least for humans, not so much for plants, and the author closes the circle back to an Earth that was still far from a utopia. There is one alien intelligence that remains mostly a mystery, the dangerous corals which seek to encroach on the forest, except for a brief period where their thoughts are translated via technology. There is a kind of epic scope in one way, and yet also a cozy feel because of the way we never lose sight of the most fundamental motivations for all the actors: sunlight and water, warmth and food, family and happiness.

    The various narrators are sketched out in an economical way so you can imagine their personalities through their actions and what other characters say about them. The worldbuilding is certainly rather extensive but never takes over from the focus on the characters, which I liked. Important things are constantly at stake and keep the tension up, even when it's time for a festival or just a communal meal.

    Solid Follow-up

    I’m assuming you’ve read or listened to the first book in the series and I really enjoyed it. This is solid, not outstanding. It expands PAX but I felt it could get a bit confusing and I didn’t understand the motivations of some major characters. The story doesn’t appear to be over so I’m looking forward to more depth in the next book but this was an enjoyable addition.

    The trip was better than the destination

    I enjoyed the story as it played out and the performers were excellent. The problem was that the story was much more interesting than where it all ended up.

    not bad for a sequel

    as with many of the multiple volume stories, this could have easily been a single volume. you really have no choice but to buy the last volume to learn the ending, which I did, because the story is that good

    good but weird

    Original and packed full of cool speculation about what alien sentient plants would be like, totally worth reading for that reason.
    But there is something almost "uncanny valley" about the dialogue of the human characters, like the book was written by a pod person or AI that doesn't fully understand how humans think and speak.
    The character of Pollox in particular seems strangely stupid, even brain damaged, this is accentuated by the narration.
    Both narrators are articulate and the male narrator is incredible with accents, but their tendency to lapse into cartoonish, overemphatic forms of speech heighten the strangeness of the dialogue.
    Definitely worth it overall though.

    The impossible sequel

    Like many highly anticipated sequels before, this is a weak, overly dramatic follow-up in line with Hollywood-style militarism and the adjoining narrative restrictions. I loved Semiosis and suffered through this in hope of that same spake, to no avail. It's as jarring a cut as from Alien to Aliens.

    Super!

    Ein würdige Fortsetzung des ersten Bandes und ein hervorragendes Stück Science Fiction. Sehr zu empfehlen!
