Zeitfuge – Michael J. Sullivan

Klappentext:

Für Ellis Rogers kommt die Diagnose wie ein Schock: Er hat nur noch ein paar Monate zu leben. Nachdem er sein Leben lang auf Nummer sicher gegangen ist, setzt Rogers jetzt alles auf eine Karte – denn in seiner Garage hat er eine Zeitmaschine gebaut. Sein Plan: in die Zukunft reisen, um dort nach einem Mittel gegen seine Krankheit zu suchen. Doch als die Maschine tatsächlich funktioniert, katapultiert sie Rogers in eine Zeit, die mit unserer Gegenwart nichts mehr zu tun zu haben scheint …

Meine Meinung zum Buch:

Ein normaler Mann aus unserer Zeit (zugegeben, ein normaler, aber intelligenter Mann) zimmert sich in seinem Werkzeugschuppen eine Zeitmaschine, traut sich aber nicht diese zu nutzen. Anders als angenommen sind Zeitreisen weder unmöglich noch vergangenheitsgerichtet. Reisen kann man nur in die Zukunft und wenn man dies einmal tut, dann ist dies endgültig. Es gibt kein zurück mehr, ebenso, wie es keine Garantie für ein Gelingen gibt.
Ellis Rogers ist jedoch verzweifelt. Er erfährt von seiner tödlichen Lungenerkrankung, die ihn binnen kurzer Zeit dahinraffen wird – ohne die geringste Chance auf Heilung. Als dann auch noch etwas in seinem privaten Bereich passiert, was seine Welt vollends aus den Fugen geraten lässt, sind Ellis die Konsequenzen egal. Er steigt in seine Zeitmaschine ein und wagt den Schritt, der vor ihm noch von niemandem gegangen wurde. Wenn in seiner Welt schon alles düster und schwarz aussieht, so bietet vielleicht wenigstens die Zukunft eine Chance auf Heilung.
Was Ellis Rogers jedoch nach seiner Reise erwartet ist für ihn unvorstellbar. Die Welt, wie er sie kannte, hat sich nicht weiterentwickelt – sie existiert nicht mehr und er muss sich in einem Gefüge zurechtfinden, dass sich gänzlich von unseren Werten und Vorstellungen unterscheidet.

Dies ist das erste Buch von Michael J. Sullivan, welches ich gelesen habe. Anders als in Zeitfuge bewegt er sich ansonsten wohl eher im Bereich der High Fantasy. Wie auch von ihm in einem Vorwort gesagt ist dieses Buch nun kein Faktenmeer für Hardboiled-SciFi-Fans, die alle beschriebenen Techniken logisch nachvollziehbar dargestellt haben wollen. Die Zeitreise in diesem Buch dient vielmehr als Mittel zum Zweck um einen Menschen aus unserer Zeit in eine zukünftige Utopie zu katapultieren und diese Welten aufeinanderprallen zu lassen.

Der Protagonist Rogers erscheint in dieser neuen Welt wie ein altes Artefakt und ist doch zugleich so einzigartig, dass sein Auftauchen den gesamten Planeten bewegt. Seine Wertvorstellungen, die doch teilweise recht konservativ amerikanisch anzusehen sind, kollidieren mit denen der neuen Gesellschaft in Hollow World. Fast wertefrei werden beide Seiten von Sullivan beleuchtet, so dass man als Leser selbst nachdenklich wird und darüber sinniert, wohin unser eigenes Verhalten uns noch führen wird, wohin wir möchten und wohin auf gar keinen Fall.
“Zeitfuge” beinhaltet zudem auch einen kleinen Kriminalfall, den Ellis und sein baldiger Weggefährte Pax gemeinsam bestreiten müssen.

Michael J. Sullivan hat mit diesem Buch nun das Rad nicht neu erfunden. Seine Geschichte ist dennoch gut durchdacht, Wendungen sind teilweise relativ leicht durchschaubar, aber trotzdem interessant. Er schildert die Story in einem flüssigen Schreibstil. Der Spannungsbogen war für mich ungewöhnlich, da er zu Beginn sehr stark angespannt ist und im weiteren Verlauf abflacht, da sich der Augenmerk der Geschichte auf eine philosophische Betrachtung der Situation konzentriert.

Was mich teilweise etwas störte war die Naivität, mit der alle handelnden Personen Situationen betrachtet und angegangen haben. Für einen Roman, der sich hauptsächlich mit einer philosophischen Betrachtung einer zukünftigen Utopie in Vergleich zu unserer heutigen Zeit beschäftigt war mir dies etwas zu einfach und simpel gestrickt. Ich hätte mir mehr Raffinesse gewünscht.

“Zeitfuge” ist definitiv ein lesenswertes Buch aus dem Genre Science-Fiction, das schon alleine aufgrund der Tatsache, dass der Leser das eigene Nachdenken anfängt, weiterzuempfehlen ist. Erzählt wird eine spannende Geschichte von einer ungewöhnlichen Zukunft, in der es um Werteverständnis, um Individualität und Freundschaft geht, ebenso wie um alte Sünden und deren Bewältigung. Die Story hat auch ihre Schwächen, welche sich aber gewiss auch daraus erklären lassen, dass der Autor für ihn Genrefremd schreibt. Alles in allem wird hier eine Geschichte erzählt, die durchaus lesenswert ist, aber auch noch etwas Luft nach oben offen lässt.

    Ich habe Zeitfuge gerade als Hörbuch gehört und finde, dass du alles sehr gut beschrieben hast. Den Roman in all seinen Stärken und den wenigen Schwächen habe ich genau so erlebt und werde hier öfter mal wieder reinschauen. 🙂

      “What was it that broke the ice between Mr. Morton and the O man today? I will tell you what. Sports. Talking about the Bears losing on Sunday.”Yeah, but that’s a guy thing. 😉 Put any two random white men together and they’ll likely start off talking about sports, too. It’s a comfort zone. Put a bunch of black, white, brown, yellow, and red American women together and I guarantee we’ll find something to talk about besides sports.

      Kudos to you! I find granite dates a place as well. Your suggestions are right on the money! Take it from me {a buyer, slowly looking} I saw a house with the same thing, peach wood cabinets with granite. My first thought was I hate the granite but expensive to replace and then the whole kitchen was dated. The granite didn't fool me. Have a great weekend

      The book sounds wonderful (reading the synopsis made me want to rewatch “The Last of the Mohicans” :-). I so understand your comment about writing about real historical characters. I’ve used real people in larger roles in books recently and I struggled with fitting them into my story (as seamlessly as possible!) yet trying to be true to the spirit of who they really were.

      I say that if any man arpes a child under the age of 11 and there is plenty of evidence to convict him, announce what he did to every prisoner in general population on his first day there. Then if he makes it ten years through whatever those guys do, kill him immediately because you’ve just made him the toughest pervert that ever existed! But for real, I would be ready to kill a man who did something like this guy did and I don’t blame Obama.

      It makes sense that we’re hard-wired for survival when our bodies tell us to eat in times of trouble. I have a real “what’s wrong with you?” reaction to those people who can’t eat when they’re upset. The problem is that our perception of “trouble” includes way too much of what is really every day life. And then, once we’re on a roll, sometimes we just don’t stop. So glad you weathered the storm well. And thank you for the Brene Brown talk. Her research is valuable and her presentation makes it so accessible.

      In todays economic climate it is no longer viable to take your automobile to a mechanic each and every time something goes incorrect. There are actually many complications that you can simply repair yourself if you just knew how your automobile performs. Getting a repair manual can be a fantastic location to begin as it tells you what you should know for your automobile..

      Grant,What made the 49ers’ ’81 secondary so remarkable, besides how good they were, was that three of them were rookies. I haven’t researched it, but I don’t believe any other team has won a super bowl with three rookie starting DBs.Given that, it seems having three rookies starting in the secondary is something to be avoided for a SB contender.

      Yes, my most recent loss would have been born next week. That is probably what has this at the forefront of my mind lately. I was hoping to be pregnant again before the due date arrived, but at least I’ll be pursing an IVF cycle so I feel as if I’m doing something to help my sadness, you know? Plus, I have two friends who will have babies next week (scheduled c-sections) so that is also highlighting the loss for me, I think.

Kto miał zrozumieć to już dawno zrozumiał.Złoto przeważnie kupuje się jako zabezpieczenie na czasy niespokojne, kryzys, itp. Kupno z dostawą odroczoną w czasie, nawet od renomownego sprzedawcy, i nawet po niższej cenie niż przy dostawie natychmiastowej, wprowadza niepotrzebne ryzyko. W obecnych czasach nawet przez parę dni może się bardzo dużo wydarzyć.

Como há interesse governista nele, acabam ficando comprometidos no projeto governo e oposição, diminuindo os riscos de serem derrubados por dissidências.
