Description

Defeated, crushed, and driven almost to extinction, the remnants of the human race is trapped on a planet that is constantly attacked by mysterious alien starfighters. 

Spensa, a teenage girl living among them, longs to be a pilot. When she discovers the wreckage of an ancient ship, she realizes this dream might be possible - assuming she can repair the ship, navigate flight school, and (perhaps most importantly) persuade the strange machine to help her. 

Because this ship, uniquely, appears to have a soul.

Génial j'ai adoré l'histoire autant que la lecture

J'ai adoré ce titre, il se prête tellement à la lecture audio.

Je voulais découvrir cet auteur par ce biais et par un roman plus "léger" avant de rentrer dans ses univers plus complexes, j'ai juste maintenant incroyablement envie de m'y vautrer avec luxure.

L'histoire se situe sur une planète dénommée Detritus (je ne sais pas si c'est autant lisible pour nous ce nom que pour les Anglais) avec une jeune fille, fille de pilote déserteur, qui lutte pour devenir pilote malgré la triste réputation de son père, en partie pour laver cette mauvaise réputation.

Il y a plein de batailles galactiques, ce que je n'aime pas mais là j'ai adoré, c'était les meilleures parties, tellement de tension.

C'est une histoire à tiroirs avec plein de rebondissements, plein de questions (certaines restent en suspens pour le deuxième tome, count on me!), et en prime de l'humour. J'adore la limace (je ne sais pas comment la décrire autrement), elle a un gros potentiel. Je suis impatiente de savoir ce qu'elle devient et M-bot est truculent, je n'en dis pas plus.

La narratrice est excellente, pas d'autre mot, elle sait tellement bien rendre les scènes, monter ou descendre en tension. Je suis très difficile sur mes livres audio et j'abandonne facilement mais là excellente lecture.

Great young adult novel for anyone aged 10 to 110.

Space adventure in which the protagonist, Spensa, has to find and face the truth. Full of originality, brilliantly-written dogfights and interactions between great characters who I'm looking forward to following in book II.

Another Sanderson Gem

I purchased this book on pre-order and started listening immediately upon it's release. I have read most of Brandon Sanderson's work, I find him one of the most compelling story-teller's in the sci-fi/fantasy genre. I was not disappointed with Skyward, it's a page-turner through and through.

Of note is the wholesome nature of this story. It is suitable for young teenagers and above, with a deceptively simple narrative that nonetheless highlights Sanderson's ability to polish a story to its essence. The character-work is front and centre, in true coming-of-age style. However, it is the world-building that occurs during the story that truly captivates and speaks to the compelling series that this first book introduces us to. That said, every word in this book is purposeful, with no wasted time to establish details. Skyward gives the reader an intimate and personal viewpoint from which to grasp the context of a galaxy-spanning story. I look forward to listening again when Skyward 2 is released (Sanderson has apparently already drafted the next in this series).

The audio performance was also well produced. Sophie Aldred voices the protagonist brilliantly and does a solid job with the supporting roles as well. Her narrative delivery manages to draw you in, allowing the listener to feel the emotion of the protaganist whilst sustaining the sense of immersion throughout fast-paced action scenes.

Entertaining and surprising story

Brandon Sanderson is a long time favorite for me and this story did not disappoint. It felt slightly different from his other works but by no means less entertaining. To me it felt like i was listening to a star wars movie being narrated. And I absolutely loved that. The one thing i disliked about the book is that i wished it would have been longer.

very young adult, stretches credulity at times

the narration is top notch. story concept is brilliant. plot etc are extremely young adult no layers and complexity. serendipity in the story sometimes stretches credulity.
would still recommend for the concept and the narrator.

Beautiful

I don’t like si-fi that much, more of a Fantasy man myself. However, this is hands down one of the best books I have ever experienced. Please give this a try, it was magnificent.

Really enjoyed this book by the end

I was curious about this book. Then I was intrigued. Then sucked in. Then hating that it was ending! Sanderson is a master of writing unique and gripping stories. Loved it and it's worth a credit!

Better version with Sophie Aldred

Much better version
This series was promoted for "young adults" audience. I think it was more apparent in the other version narrated by Suzy Jackson.
This version, narrated by Sophie Aldred feels slightly more mature. Also M-bot sounds better in this version, for some reason the Irish/Scottish? accent makes its quirky character better stand out.

Another great Book from the Sanderson

The book is closer in style to the Rekkoners than either mistborn or stormlight. Yet he still has his well known charme when exploring a completely new setting.

The idea of the unlikely hero finding a chance to fulfill her dreams is a bit like Eragon, but the similarities end there. No magic this time.

I am looking forward to part two, shouldn't be too long.

It's the best audio book ever!

While I never thought I could be interested in what things people learn in flight school, Brandon Sanderson explained Spensa's challenges in such a thrilling way, I couldn't stop listening and always was eager to hear more! Also, I can imagine this is the first book better listened to than read - the invigorating, motivated voices are so fun to listen to, it has been a real joy! The humour of the machine also made me laugh out loud several times. Thank you for all the fun I had with this book. Now I'll be listening to every single one of Sanderson's books!

Fantastic

There was so much that I loved about this Audiobook.

Sophie Aldred really made this novel magical. I loved how she brought all the characters to life. I especially loved the Scottish accented M-bot. I found her voice absolutely beautiful to listen to and very relaxing. Thanks for making this book memorable.

The story was also very entertaining and it has me absolutely hooked. I have downloaded the second book and can't wait to start.

Unterhaltsam, spannend, sympathisch

Eine spannend und sympathisch geschriebene Geschichte über junge Kampfflieger-Kadetten in einer dystopischen SciFi-Welt. Die Charaktere sind divers und niemand ist zu 100% vorhersehbar. Ein Teil Coming Of Age, ein Teil Mystery, ein Teil Humor und so einige Schlachten haben mich eine Woche lang gut unterhalten. Die Sprecherin macht ihren Job ebenfalls sehr gut.

My first Brandon Sanderson experience

Oh man where do i even start.
There is so much emotion in this.
Let me start by saying that i at the moment of this review, haven't read another Brandon Sanderson series. Only this one.
So keep that in mind while you read my review.
So let's start with the characters. There are so many of them. So many that you think to yourself "will i even remember any of these?".
Yes. Yes you will. The Characters are all different and unique to eachother. The development is amazing. The growth of the characters is just unbelievably good. The plot is intriguing and it presents you with questions that just keep you hooked because you want to know more.
The Dogfights are amazing. There's so much action in this, but it's just written so beautifully, and it just keeps you on the tip of your toes.

I definitely recommend this. One of my favourite series that i have ever read.
