Fresh from his latest collaboration with Terry Pratchett on the Long Earth sequence Stephen Baxter now returns to the mysteries and challanges first hinted at in his acclaimed novel PROXIMA.
In PROXIMA we discovered ancient alien artifacts on the planet of Per Ardua - hatches that allowed us to step across light years of space as if we were stepping into another room. The universe opened up to us.
Now in ULTIMA the consequences of this new freedom make themselves felt. And we discover that there are minds in the universe that are billions of years old and they have a plan for us. For some of us. But as we learn the true nature of the universe we also discover that we have countless pasts all meeting in this present and that our future is terrifyingly finite. It's time for us to fight to take back control.
This is grand scale, big idea SF of the best possible sort. It is set to build on the massive success of PROXIMA and define Stephen Baxter's work going forward.

Story Ok, audio unbearable

Würden Sie gern ein anderes Hörbuch von Stephen Baxter und/oder Kyle McCarley ausprobieren?

Baxter: yes,
Speaker: no way

Welcher Moment von Ultima ist Ihnen besonders im Gedächtnis geblieben?

The first time a lation spoke with a fake Italian accent. Made me laugh. Then filled me with horror considering the length of the ausiobook.

Würden Sie es noch mal mit einem anderen Hörbuch mit Kyle McCarley versuchen?


Hat Ultima Sie zu etwas Bestimmtem inspiriert?

I love Baxter. I should read the books instead of listening to them I guess.

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

"Proxima", the first part of the story, is different (and I found it much more entertaining).
