Amalthea: Roman by Neal Stephenson

By Neal Stephenson

Der Mond explodierte ohne Vorwarnung und ohne erkennbaren Grund. Die Uhrzeit würde guy später als A+0.0.0 oder schlicht Null bezeichnen …

05:03:12 Weltzeit. Die Stunde Null. Nach der Explosion des Mondes wütet über Jahrtausende ein Meteoritensturm, der die Erdoberfläche in eine unbewohnbare Wüstenei verwandelt. Um die Menschheit vor der Auslöschung zu bewahren, schickten die Nationen der Erde eine Flotte von Archen ins All. Der Asteroid Amalthea, der ursprünglich zu Forschungszwecken an eine internationale Raumstation angedockt worden conflict, soll der Kolonie als Schutzschild dienen. Doch das Leben im Weltraum fordert einen hohen Tribut, und die meisten Menschen sterben, bis schließlich nur noch sieben Frauen übrig sind, um eine neue Zivilisation zu begründen. 5000 Jahre später existieren zwei Völker: die Nachfahren derer, die die Katastrophe auf der Erde überlebt haben, sind primitive Siedler; die sieben Stämme der Nachkommen der Sieben Urmütter von der Raumstation hingegen hochkultiviert ― und sie machen sich auf, die Erde zu kolonialisieren …

Sample text

Gently he placed his hand on hers. She managed to wrap her thumb around one of his fingers, and then slowly she smiled. It wasn’t even close to the usual Evelyn smile that could light up a room, but Steve welcomed the sight of it. ” For a moment it seemed she hadn’t heard him. ” Her eyes grew watery, but she seemed so far away, so out of touch with her emotions and her direct situation, that her words came out in a dull monotone, a stupored statement of fact. “Just rest, Evie. ” She smiled weakly and gave his finger a barely discernible squeeze.

Countless readers were riveted by the story of a deep secret that was destroying a small mining town. Throw in an invisible enemy with an unquenchable desire to devour all within its path and sin so real that it turns people’s hearts an oozing black—and you can see why the story would keep people turning pages long into the night. But The Oath is far more than just a fast-paced adventure. The story skillfully shows the devastating power of sin in a manner most readers have never seen before. Sin has become a word that our culture rarely uses anymore .

No signs of bear, though. A bright flash of blue caught his eye, and he looked uphill, across a rocky expanse. There was the tent, perched on the hillside, a tiny igloo of blue nylon. Steve recognized it. He’d been on several hunting trips with Cliff and Evelyn when they’d used that very tent. With sorrow coming alive at the memories, he knew he could predict the layout of the camp; Cliff always had his own tried-and-true method of doing things in the wild. Steve stopped and gave the slope a slow sweep with his eyes, moving his gaze from the tent downward toward a grove of trees below the trail.
