Publisher's Summary

Brad Pitt's Plan B Entertainment and Warner Bros are set to bring YA sci-fi novel Illuminae to the big screen.

The year is 2575, and two megacorporations are at war over a planet that's little more than an ice-covered speck. Too bad nobody thought to warn the people living on it. With enemy fire raining down on them, Ezra and Kady have to make their escape on the evacuating fleet. But their troubles are just beginning. A deadly plague has broken out on one of the spaceships and is mutating, with terrifying results. Their ship's protection is seriously flawed. No one will say what is going on. As Kady hacks in to a tangled web of data to find the truth, it's clear only one person can help her: Ezra. And the only problem with that is they split up before all this trouble started, and she isn't supposed to be talking to him.

A fantastically original, heart-stopping adventure where everything is definitely more dangerous than it seems.

Read it Or regret it.

I read and listen to a lot of books and this sat on my phone for a while, i wasnt really keen on the writing format so was reluctant to try this even though i had bought it. But walking home one day realised i had nothing else left and was forced to listen to it. And im so glad i did.

I have read a lot of books from many genres, i mean brandon Sandersons my fave author. But this is hands down the best audio series i have ever heard and i write this review in the final few hourse of the second. Annoyed because i thought the third book was out.

The censoring of swear words was a little annoying but its explained in the story and you can easily tell what they are saying. The voice cast is great You will become attached to the characters quickly and become hooked by the mystery. The second quarter of book one is a little slow but from there it picks up speed like an avalanche contiuing into book 2 with an extended cast.

Now that's an audiobook

The performance of this audiobook is amazing. All the sound effects bring the book to life. It really adds to the creepyness that should be felt at times and the desperation.

Why censor for?

Hard to get in to due to the distracting censoring of the swear words, I kept thinking my device was playing up/skipping/buffering. Glad audible offers returns.

Sci-fi for teenage girls

struggled to the end just wanting to know where the story was going putting up with long periods of wishy washy romantic drivel

Unparalleled performance

The BEST audiobook production I have heard. I struggled to get into the book's text format but had my doubts as to how they would translate it into an audio. I'm so glad that I gave this a shot because the voices, the effects, the music, were all done exceptionally well! Just wow. The story was amazing too.

F*cking amazing!

The narration of this book is spectacular and I loved all the sound effects that were added to bring this story to life. The plot was captivating and the writing style is clever and unique. The pacing of the story was good and didn't feel like it dragged and I enjoyed all of the banter and interactions between the characters in this book. This is a book that is well deserving of the hype it gets!! Look forward to listening to the next book.

Mesmerising

I avoided this book for sometime, thinking it was young adult fiction. This is so much more . If you read only one science fiction this year, let it be this one.
