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.

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.

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.

Fresh interesting take on humans living among the stars. Once again Sanderson’s characters draw you in. Simply a great read.

yet another story...

...where the ruling group can't think logically worth a bleep. good story with a good character, but entirely unbelievable considering the plain idiocy revealed about the leaders late in the book.

Strong writing and even stronger narrating

I enjoy Sanderson's books, the man is a veteran writer who knows what he's doing, so it's easy to recommend another one of his books. But, Sophie Aldred should be highlighted for an extraordinary narration, making a good book even greater.

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.
