THE INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
The alternate history first contact adventure Axiom's End is an extraordinary debut from Hugo finalist and video essayist Lindsay Ellis.
Truth is a human right.
/> It's fall 2007. A well-timed leak has revealed that the US government might have engaged in first contact. Cora Sabino is doing everything she can to avoid the whole mess, since the force driving the controversy is her whistleblower father. Even though Cora hasn't spoken to him in years, his celebrity has caught the attention of the press, the Internet, the paparazzi, and the governmentand with him in hiding, that attention is on her. She neither knows nor cares whether her father's leaks are a hoax, and wants nothing to do with himuntil she learns just how deeply entrenched her family is in the cover-up, and that an extraterrestrial presence has been on Earth for decades.
Realizing the extent to which both she and the public have been lied to, she sets out to gather as much information as she can, and finds that the best way for her to uncover the truth is not as a whistleblower, but as an intermediary. The alien presence has been completely uncommunicative until she convinces one of them that she can act as their interpreter, becoming the first and only human vessel of communication. Their otherworldly connection will change everything she thought she knew about being humanand could unleash a force more sinister than she ever imagined.
A Macmillan Audio production from St. Martin's Press
"Axiom's End is one of the most unique science fiction novels in years. It's a heartfelt story of alien first contact, but, luckily, unlike so many "big idea" sci-fi books, it's utterly unpretentious." SYFY.com

Más 3,5 que 3 a secas.

En general me ha gustado, tiene ideas y conceptos muy interesantes que aunque ya vistos en infinidad de contenido de ciencia ficción, consigue dotarlos de un algo diferente. No llega al nivel de sus referentes pero mantiene muy bien el tipo.

Quizá le cuesta un poco arrancar, no tanto por el ritmo sino quizá por el estilo de escritura o por la personalidad de la protagonista. Admito que al principio me costaba acabar de conectar y tenia la sensación de que estaba más “all over the place” que más avanzado el libro. Aún así, pasado el primer tercio, ya es todo disfrute.

Creo que consigue crear algo diferente sin intentar disimular sus referentes y que puede dar mucho juego en futuras entregas, un inicio solido aunque no excelente. Deja con ganas de leer más, y eso es más que suficiente. ( )

I love books that have the linguist/alien contact trope. There's not a bunch, but I snatch up every one I can find. This book is fantastic and fun. ( )

The first act was a bit slow, but it was a pretty easy read overall. Not much to complain about, but not much that excited me either. It was fun to learn about how the Fremda group worked and there were some tender moments that I liked, but overall it didn't stick out to me. ( )

This book was very easy to read, I think I blew through the first half in the first few days, and then took my time with the rest of it, lmao.

I'm a big fan of Lindsay's Video Essays, and her critiques of film are fantastic. I don't think I've ever enjoyed Guardians of The Galaxy Vol. 2 as much as I enjoyed hearing her praise it, LOL.

But this book! You can really feel the enthusiasm she has for these different sci-fi cultures and worlds, and as a person with ADHD, this book read like a movie to me.

I'm not to great at giving reviews of books, but I DID enjoy it, and I DID see the hard work, and it was never really boring. But I will DEFINITELY return to this, especially when the next book in the series comes out.
Also, LONG LIVE & ! ( )

I made it about a third of the way before I gave up. This book just drug along obnoxiously. The main character spends most of the time either going ‘huh?’ or repeating someone because they didn’t understand. They also have utterly no good sense in a threatening situation.
I stopped reading when I realized that I really don’t care what happens with any of these characters because they are all annoying. ( )
