“Illuminae” recounts the events that unfolded at Kerenza and the subsequent developments aboard the Alexander. On an ordinary day, Kady found herself behind the wheel of her mother’s truck, a seemingly routine occurrence, until their mining colony was suddenly besieged. It was only due to the truck that she and Ezra managed to escape with their lives. Amidst the chaos of the attack and the destruction of their home, the people of Kerenza were rescued by the Alexander, a formidable dreadnought, along with the Hypatia and the Copernicus, a research vessel. Despite ending up on different ships after their evacuation, Ezra and Kady were able to maintain communication through messages. Unfortunately, their flight from the pursuing Lincoln was hampered by the damage inflicted upon the Alexander during the confrontation with four hostile ships.
Over the course of the next six months, the three vessels raced towards the Heimdall waypoint, hoping to outpace the relentless pursuit of the Lincoln. Yet, before they could reach their destination, a catastrophic event occurred. Aiden, the Artificial Intelligence system of the Alexander, inexplicably fired upon the Copernicus, prompting the captain to question its motives and ultimately disable it. With their lives hanging in the balance, the crew struggled to restart the system without Aiden’s control, but time might be running out. As Kady remained aboard the Hypatia, she unwittingly drew Aiden’s attention from that ship, setting in motion a sequence of events that would alter everything.
I found myself deeply drawn to Kady and Ezra, who grapple with their own challenges while navigating the tumultuous waters of high school life, a world suddenly upended by unforeseen circumstances. Their unwavering bond, despite the physical distance and perilous situations, is a testament to their resilience. Aiden, the enigmatic Artificial Intelligence, fascinated me as well; it possessed a depth of humanity that transcended its mere AI status, at times expressing the desire for something as human as holding Kady’s hand. Kady’s journal entries and accounts allowed me to intimately experience her emotions and experiences, forging a powerful connection despite the unconventional narrative format.
Upon beginning “Illuminae,” I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect, as I hadn’t thoroughly read the synopsis prior to purchasing the book. It came as a delightful surprise to discover that the story is conveyed through documents, emails, interviews, instant messages, and various other file formats. The narrative flowed remarkably well in this unique style, drawing me so deeply into the story that I hardly noticed the unconventional format. Every moment of the book enthralled me, immersing me in Kady’s emotional turmoil, and I confess it moved me to both tears of sadness and joy.
“Illuminae” is a beautifully executed work, a captivating novel that stirs the heart and sparks the imagination. Initially, I had feared it might resemble “2001: A Space Odyssey,” but it rapidly evolved into an intricate and multifaceted narrative, far surpassing my expectations. I treasured every instant of it, and it unquestionably secured a place in my top five reads of 2015. Despite having just completed this book, I am already eager for the next installment. The thirst for more is undeniable.
Julian Fellowes’s Belgravia audiobook
Having thoroughly enjoyed Julian Fellowes’ “Downton Abbey,” I was compelled to pick up “Belgravia,” and it certainly lived up to my expectations. The novel unfolds against the backdrop of London, a city where two distinct cultures—the aristocratic elite and the aspiring business class—seemingly compete for prominence in the life of a young entrepreneur named Mr. Pope.
Within the narrative, we encounter a multitude of twists and turns, as the story delves into the intertwined lives of two families and their connections to Mr. Pope. James Trenchard emerges as the ambitious businessman who fervently pursues a social status equal to that of the elite aristocracy. In contrast, his patient and pragmatic wife, Anne, stands as the voice of reason in their relationship, aware that such aspirations may be unattainable.
Meanwhile, the aristocratic Peregrine and Carolyn, at the heart of London’s high society, find themselves wary of James Trenchard’s ambitions to bridge the social divide. However, they unwittingly discover a common thread that binds them together.
At this juncture, I shall refrain from revealing more details of the story. Nonetheless, I wholeheartedly recommend “Belgravia” to anyone with a penchant for period fiction. It proved to be a delightful and engaging read.
Audiobook Julian Fellowes’s Belgravia by Julian Fellowes
Julian Fellowes, known for his work in modern television series such as “Downton Abbey,” imbues “Belgravia” with a captivating blend of upstairs-downstairs intrigue. As I delved into the novel, the themes of class distinctions and class consciousness, set against the backdrop of two families—one aristocratic and the other emerging from the burgeoning commercial class in the early 19th century—evoked echoes of Anthony Trollope’s storytelling.
However, Fellowes brings a contemporary twist to the narrative, infusing it with a swifter pace and an eye for television-ready episodes. Trollope and Dickens, writing for audiences accustomed to serialized novels in magazines, frequently incorporated cliffhanger endings and compelling elements that left readers eagerly anticipating what would happen next. This storytelling approach aligns seamlessly with the structure of a television series, and Fellowes deftly adapts it to modern reading preferences.
In essence, while reading “Belgravia,” I couldn’t help but draw parallels with Anthony Trollope’s (albeit much lengthier) Palliser Chronicles. Many of the same enduring themes resonate in both works.
In any case, “Belgravia” proves to be an immensely enjoyable book. I had the pleasure of acquiring my copy during a visit to London in July, just as it was generating considerable buzz as a potential bestseller in the city. Subsequently, it achieved bestseller status upon its release in the USA. My wife also read and enjoyed it enough to purchase multiple copies, which she then shared as thoughtful Christmas and birthday gifts for her friends.

Being a devoted fan of “Downton Abbey” and knowing that the same writer penned this book, I approached it with high expectations, and I’m pleased to say that it didn’t disappoint. It provided a delightful and engaging reading experience.
The story commences with a pivotal moment in history—the eve of the Battle of Waterloo. The cream of British society gathers at a grand ball hosted by the Duchess of Richmond. For some, that fateful evening would alter the course of their lives forever. Yet, it would take a span of twenty-five years for certain consequences to fully materialize, all within the challenging context of high society mingling intimately with the nouveau riche, whose pedigrees are marred by the taint of trade. Herein lies the central conflict.
Throughout the book, a captivating cast of characters takes the stage, evoking a range of emotions from delight to dismay as they grapple with the complex circumstances they find themselves in. The central question looms large: Is familial bond stronger than societal norms? To discover the answer, one must delve into this well-crafted and thoroughly enjoyable book.
I wholeheartedly recommend it to aficionados of period dramas; it’s sure to captivate their hearts and minds.

Obwohl ich bisher keine einzige Folge von “Downton Abbey” gesehen hatte, trat ich unvoreingenommen in die Welt von Julian Fellowes ein. Zugegebenermaßen benötigte ich eine Weile, um in die Handlung hineinzufinden und die komplexen Verwandtschafts- und sozialen Verhältnisse zu erfassen. Doch sobald ich mich mit dem Thema vertraut gemacht hatte, fesselte mich das Buch mit seiner flüssigen Erzählweise und den äußerst fesselnden Charakteren.
Schnell hegte ich Sympathie für James Trenchard und den jungen Charles Pope, während auch seine Angebetete Maria Grey mich verzauberte. Besonders bewundernswert fand ich sie, da sie den Mut aufbrachte, sich dem von ihrer Mutter auserkorenen Heiratskandidaten zu widersetzen, selbst wenn dies den gesellschaftlichen Ruin ihrer Familie bedeuten könnte. Ihr Entschluss, den jungen Mister Pope zu heiraten, trotz der möglichen schweren Konsequenzen, war in dieser Zeit und Position untypisch und zeugte von bemerkenswerter Entschlossenheit.
Natürlich gab es auch zweifelhafte Charaktere, die mir mit Skepsis und gelegentlich sogar Abscheu begegneten. Ein Beispiel hierfür ist Stephen Bellasis, der vor nichts zurückschreckt, nicht einmal vor Mord, um an sein Erbe zu gelangen. Seine lockere Moral und seine Verführung verheirateter Frauen zeugen von seinem negativen Charakter. Als Leser fand ich mich regelrecht in der Welt der englischen Oberschicht des frühen bis mittleren 19. Jahrhunderts verloren, und es bereitete mir Freude, all diesen Intrigen und Geheimnissen dabei zuzusehen, wie sie nach und nach ans Licht kamen.
Allerdings muss ich gestehen, dass einige Aspekte des Buches für meinen Geschmack etwas zu offensichtlich daherkamen. Zum Beispiel verkörperte Stephen Bellasis alle Klischees eines Adligen, der sich hedonistischen Abenteuern hingibt und auf das Erbe wartet. Sein Vater wiederum erfüllt das Stereotyp des spielsüchtigen Adeligen, der seinen älteren Bruder beneidet. Dieses Übermaß an Stereotypen war für mich ein kleiner Minuspunkt.
Abgesehen davon war das Buch durchaus unterhaltsam, von den Butlern bis hin zu den gelangweilten aristokratischen Ehefrauen, deren einzige Pflicht die Fortführung der Familiendynastie zu sein scheint. Es war interessant, ihre Beweggründe und Handlungen zu verfolgen.
Nach anfänglichen Schwierigkeiten habe ich mich gut in die Geschichte eingefunden und sie genossen, auch wenn ich aufgrund der stereotypen Charaktere nicht alles allzu ernst nehmen konnte. Nachdem ich “Belgravia” gelesen habe, überlege ich sogar, mich endlich an “Downton Abbey” zu wagen.
