Summary

Hanna Donnelly is the station captain's pampered daughter, and Nik Malikov is the reluctant member of a notorious crime family.

Together they struggle with the realities of life aboard the galaxy's most boring space station, blissfully unaware that Kady Grant and the Hypatia are headed right toward Heimdall with news of the Kerenza invasion.

Awesome!

Great narration! I loved being able to finish Gemina while doing other things and not have to wait to physically read the next bit if i was busy/commuting. Cant wait for Obsidio

Loved it!

Last year Illuminae made it into my top 10 books that I read in 2016 so I couldn't wait to read this one and I have to say that it didn't disappoint! The new characters we're introduced to are just as interesting as the ones we meet in Illuminae so I was rooting for them more or less straight away. The story, like its predecessor was a roller-coaster ride that put me through every single conceivable emotion in the best way possible and made the 663 pages fly by and the full cast audio made the experience completely emersive.

My absolute favourite series of audiobooks!

If you could sum up Gemina in three words, what would they be?

Engaging, exciting, emotional.

What other book might you compare Gemina to, and why?

Not like anything else I've read/heard.

What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

An amazing full cast & fab special effects. Too many great performances to pick one. I love that all the characters continue across the different books in the series. Love the range of accents and personalities.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I commute 2.5 hours a day in the car and couldn't wait for the journeys to and from work so that I could get the next instalment!

Any additional comments?

I can HIGHLY recommend this series.

Please hurry up with book 3!

Censorship of swearing deeply annoying!

Very good performance and great story. Sound quality adequate. Censorship of swearing extremely annoying. This should either be optional or an age rating given. It is like audio interference but totally unacceptable. Get your act together audiobooks. FFS!

Same sharp writing, and a great cast

Illuminae (book 1) was a self-contained story based around the ship Hypatia. Gemina (book 2) has a new setting and new characters.

It uses the same framing as Illuminae: the book is a collection of chat logs and camera transcripts presented to a tribunal. It works really well at making it feel like this is <i>real</i>. It also means about a third of the story is presented through teenagers' instant messages. They're wonderfully written, and they're exactly as try-hard and snarky as you'd expect a teenager's messages to be... whether you enjoy that or not will play a big part in whether you enjoy the story.

Personally, I love it. The writing's every bit as sharp as the first book, and the format still works wonderfully. The new setting doesn't work quite as well for me - Illuminae had a couple of specific threats that really made the story stand out, and because this one has a new setting, those aren't present. Hence 4 starts rather than 5. But it's still a wonderfully-written young adult sci-fi novel.

I also found the 'big twist' was perfectly weighted, i.e. I spotted it ahead of time, but I had to pay attention.

The audiobook is brilliant. It's read with a full cast, and the main actors (Carla Corvo and Steve West) are wonderful. There's also an actor for the analyst describing the camera transcripts. This added another dimension for me, as he became a character of his own in a way I hadn't noticed when I was reading it myself.

Absolutely mind-blowing, brilliant!! Part 2

Well to be honest, I didn't think that book two could be better than book one but Hells Bells it was! The twists and turns were totally unexpected, brilliantly written! I haven't read a book like this before and it was so gripping, I just could not stop listening to it, so I spent today doing housework and things and still listening and as usual they lived on a cliffhanger! Just about to start book 3 and to be honest I cannot wait to see what happens!!! These two books so far have been the best sci-fi books that I have read in many a year and I would highly recommend them to sci-fi fans. Sit back and enjoy 😁

Surveillance summary, prepared by Analyst ID 1903

As the footage starts, our hero is again seen sat in his comfy chair, headphones on but no background noise pollution is drowning out his exclamations that accompany the frequently changing expressions showing rapid changes of emotional state...

ERROR

Initially, I was a little disappointed to lose our cast from the previous book until I realised this is actually running partially parallel to the first book on the other side of the Heimdall Jump Gate.

Again, there is nothing groundbreaking in the storyline as the BeiTech aggressors attempt to cover up their misdeeds from the first book, although we are kept guessing because of the 'supporting cast' (I will never look at a cow in passive ignorance again...) and their interactions.

But the winner is still the format in the paper version and the fantastic full cast in the audio book (including a rendition of the malware song).

Once more into the breach for book 3...
