Inhaltsangabe zu „Leviathan Wakes“ von James S. A. Corey

Humanity has colonised the solar system - Mars, the Moon, the Asteroid Belt and beyond - but the stars are still out of our reach. Jim Holden is an officer on an ice miner making runs from the rings of Saturn to the mining stations of the Belt. When he and his crew discover a derelict ship called the Scopuli, they suddenly find themselves in possession of a deadly secret. A secret that someone is willing to kill for, and on an unimaginable scale. War is coming to the system, unless Jim can find out who abandoned the ship and why. Detective Miller is looking for a girl. One girl in a system of billions, but her parents have money - and money talks. When the trail leads him to the Scopuli and Holden, they both realise this girl may hold the key to everything. Holden and Miller must thread the needle between the Earth government, the Outer Planet revolutionaries and secret corporations, and the odds are against them. But out in the Belt, the rules are different, and one small ship can change the fate of the universe.

I was taken to the stars reading this story. It was such a pleasure to read each page and I never got bored.

The Ark - Die letzte Reise der Menschheit

Spannende Geschichte, für meinen Geschmack etwas zu viel Thriller und zu wenig Sci-Fi, aber sehr unterhaltsam.

Spannend, aber auch tw verwirrend und mit einem - in meinen Augen - unmöglichen Ende ...

    PLOT Welcome to the future. "Once, it had been packed with people, supplies, schematics machines, environment bubbles, and hope." ~ p. 8 James Holden ends up captain of his own little crew due to a deadly attack and suddenly stumbles upon a secret he never wanted. There are forces in the universe that are willing to kill in order to keep those information covert and stop at nothing. A war is starting to brew and Holden and his crew are the only one's out there that can prevent the system from destroying itself. "The joke was that Ceres didn't have laws - it had police." ~ p. 24 Detective Miller is looking for a girl, because her parents want her back at any cost. The trail leads Miller throughout the belt and soon he realizes that there is more to the story. His girl might be the key to peace and soon Holden and Miller cross paths. "He had the already lost hopefulness of a man with a lottery ticket" ~ p. 536 One small ship can change the fate of the universe. OPINION Gosh. I think I am turning into a Sci Fi addict. Well, maybe not the hardcore kind, but definitely the adventurous type. This space opera definitely hooked me and I want to know more. What will the crew of the Rocinante discover next? How are their relationships evolving? I absolutely got sucked into the outer belt and loved it. "The warmth in his chest might have been the alcohol or it might have been victory." ~ p. 381 I enjoyed the characters a lot and the one's I didn't quite fancy died pretty fast. Especially the charaters on the Rocinante have a great chemistry and the reader kinda feels as part of the crew. Holden doesn't seem like this arrogant know-it-all I got to know in the film series adaptation. He is so much more likeable in the book. Of course he makes some stupid decisions, but I actually understood his actions even though I didn't share his thoughts. Still, it made all sense. Amos is also more likeable in the book and doesn't have this freaky vibe to him like he does in the film series. In the book he is this rebel teddy bear, who is extremly loyal to his crew and superiors (with some minor flaws). Naomi is this awesome badass in both, the film series and the book. She is pretty great and I kinda want her as a friend. The last important character on the Rocinante is the martian pilot Alex. The film series adaption represented his character really good and he is a great addition to the crew. "Wrapped in a space suit and surrounded by vacuum, Gomez could have been lighting fireworks inside his armore and no one would have heard it, but he whispered." ~ p. 141 The descriptions are super vivid and I was able to imagine the looks of the belters amazingly well. It was so much fun to read; learn more about space. It felt like all of this could actually happen in the future. It wasn't too freaky and kind of realistic, which I enjoyed. The characters weren't shallow at all and thought through. The conflicts, especially between Holden and Miller because of conflicting worldviews, made the story a lot more fun to read. Miller brought this whole new side to the story - some detective story and some noir. I never got bored, because there always seemed something to be happening. CONCLUSION I was taken to the stars reading this story. It was such a pleasure to read each page and I never got bored, because there always seemed something to be happening. It still wasn't enough to give full points, but it is definitely worth 4 out of 5 points. I cannot wait to read the second book. @ Das Bücherchamäleon

    Ich bin durch den Sword & Laser Buchclub von Geek & Sundry auf dieses Buch gestoßen, ansonsten wäre ich selbst wohl nicht auf die Idee gekommen, dieses Buch zu kaufen. Wir sind in der Zukunft, der Mensch hat den Mars kolonisiert und einige haben sich auch in den Asteroidengürteln in unserer Galaxis niedergelassen. Es herrscht überall eine gewisse Anspannung es bedarf nur einer unüberlegten Nachricht eines einfachen Raumfahrers, der den größten Krieg der Menschheitsgeschichte auslöst. Es verbirgt sich doch viel mehr dahinter, als es den Anschein hat. Das Buch ist sehr flüssig geschrieben und erinnert mehr an einen Film als wirklich an einen Roman. Vor allem hatte ich während dem Lesen verschiedene Filme/Anime vor Augen. Es fing mit Blade Runner an, die Gesamtsituation erinnerte mich an Gundam, über Alien bis hin zu Armaggedon. Ich werde mir auf jeden Fall in ein paar Wochen, wenn mir danach ist den zweiten Teil Caliban Wars zu legen.
