Kurzbeschreibung

Author Dan Wells is back with the sequel to the sci-fi blockbuster Partials, which Pittacus Lore called a "thrilling sci-fi adrenaline rush, with one of the most compelling and frightening visions of Earth's future I've seen yet."

After discovering the cure for RM, Kira Walker sets off on a terrifying journey into the ruins of postapocalyptic America and the darkest desires of her heart in order to uncover the means—and a reason—for humanity's survival.

Dan Wells extends his richly imagined, gritty world and introduces new memorable characters in this second installment in the Partials Sequence.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Super Buchserie 21. April 2014
Von Vera.d.r
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Ich mochte die komplette Partials Serie sehr gerne. Und ich habe alle drei Bücher sehr schnell hintereinander weg gelesen. Die Charaktäre von Dan Wells haben genug tiefe um in ihren Handlungen glaubwürdig und schlüssig zu sein. Die Story ist spannend und mitreißend. Eine gute Buchserie und eine Interessante Dystopie.

Im Anschluß habe ich die John Cleaver Series Buchserie startend mit "I am not a serialkiller" von Dan Wells gelesen. Keine Dystopie aber wer Dan Wells schreibstiel mochte sollte sich diese Buchserie auch mal zu gemüte ziehen. Ich fand es von den Charactären eher noch besser....wenn auch etwas unheimlich!

5.0 von 5 Sternen KAUFEN!!! 29. Januar 2014
Von Alena
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Ich habe dieses Buch durch den Autor entdeckt, von dem ich "I'm not a serialkiller" hatte. Das ist der zweite Teil einer Trilogie, auf deren 3. Teil ich sehnsüchtig warte.
Obwohl dieser Teil etwas langsamer war, fand ich ihn trotzdem extrem interessant und gut geschrieben. Man erfährt mehr über die Anfänge der Partials, was mich durchaus fasziniert hat. Jedem dem das erste Buch gefallen hat, kann ich es also nur weiterempfehlen. Es lohnt sich wirklich dran zu bleiben. Nicht nur weil der erste Teil mit einem Cliffhanger aufgehört hat, sondern eben auch weil es ein wirklich gutes Buch ist.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Great continuation 22. April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
After reading Partials, I couldn't wait for reading "Fragments". Fragments tells the story of the main characters moving west to find the cure for the whole civilization, both the genetically engineered "partials" and the "humans", while it remains a bit unclear what makes a human "human". Partials uses a couple of loose ends of "Partials" and ties them together to an interesting story.

I would grant four stars because it is nice to read, interesting and adds to Patials. I take one star for some inconsistencies, for example if they are traveling west in a future North America, using a toll way and one character mentions that he has some coins, that doesn't make sense in a post apocalyptic place devastated and deserted with no humans living there. And as the characters, esp. Kira, was raised later, what would such a concept mean to her? But this is neither important to the plot, nor to the story, so for me this is really not too important.

After reading the book, I would like to also read the next in the series, as this one ends in a cliffhanger. The human colony in East Meadows, the rivaling groups of "Partials", the second group of humans in the mountains, not being in contact with the others before. A good read for someone who likes fantasy novels staged in a kind of apocalyptic future.

Format:Taschenbuch
Zum Inhalt: Sowohl Menschen, als auch Partials kämpfen um ihre Existenz... Ein kleiner Durchbruch ist beim RM-Virus gelungen, doch von einer endgültigen Heilung sind die Menschen noch weit entfernt. Kira hat ganz andere Probleme, sie verlässt die Insel und macht sich auf die Suche nach Antworten. Dabei stellt sie fest, dass das Schicksal aller, näher zusammenhängt als gedacht.
....

"Partials" hat mit einer fiesen Enthüllung geendet und ließ einen richtig neugierig auf die Fortsetzung zurück. Obwohl Dan Wells schon einiges an Worldbuilding untergebracht hat, waren noch so einige Fragen offen. Wie ist es zu der Übernahme der Partials gekommen? Wie konnte sich die Menschheit nur so verschätzen?
Und was gab es für mich? Antworten, Antworten, Antworten! Sonst rege ich mich immer auf, wie wenig letzten Endes erklärt wird. Hier aber, verpackt Dan Wells einen ganzen Batzen Infos, während Kira nach der Wahrheit sucht. Tja, es hätte so schön werden können! Vor lauter suchen, Antworten finden und Verschwörungen aufdecken, ging leider der eigentliche Plot verloren.

In "Partials" war es meiner Meinung nach richtig gut aufgeteilt: einerseits spannende Handlung, andererseits wohldosierte Informationen. Hier aber hetzt Kira von einer Wolkenkratzerruine zur anderen. Zu Beginn noch ist es, vor allem durch die Atmosphäre, klasse gemacht. Kira kämpft sich durch verwüstete Bürogebäude und scheitert dann schon mal an fehlendem Wissen über unsere Technik. Doch irgendwann lässt der Reiz nach, es gibt zu viele Wiederholungen und zieht sich in die Länge.
Für mich leider zu spät, zieht das Erzähltempo zum Ende hin deutlich an.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Gripping and complex, but with some flaws 6. April 2013
Von Bookphile - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I was a big fan of Partials, the first book in the series. It was refreshing to see a YA novel that got into some fairly technical territory, that didn't center on a romance, and in which relationships between characters were conveyed in a complex way. So I had high hopes for Fragments and, for the most part, I was not let down. Some spoilers to follow.

First off, I'll start with my one gripe about the book: it was too long. I thought it needed some additional editing because there were passages in the book that did too much meandering without adding much to the story. I don't mind a long book, but everything that's in it needs to be there for a reason, which wasn't always the case in this book. It took me longer to read this book than is typical because I sometimes found it hard to get through some of the lengthier sections.

One key thing I think could have been done to make the book shorter: cut out the perspectives of those Kira leaves behind while on her journey. Though it was good to know what was going on, I found myself hurrying past the parts told from Marcus's point of view, simply because I wanted to get back to what was happening with Kira, which was really the main thrust of the story. Though important things happen back in Manhattan, they felt more inevitable, and I had the sense that those chapters were in the book just to keep the reader posted on what was happening. I think it might have been better to reserve the information for the third book, so that seeing Manhattan again would be more of a shock. Then again, I don't much like Marcus, so that probably colors my opinion on his sections. Still, Wells devotes far less page time to Marcus's sections than he does Kira's, which makes it seem as though they're less important.

However, there were a lot of things this book does right, and the top of my list is its portrayal of female characters. There's a disturbing trend in YA genre fiction that tends to make its female characters become passive participants in the action of the novel, but that was not the case in this one. Kira firmly takes the reins and does what she needs to do in order to achieve her goal of saving not only humans, but also Partials. This means that she sometimes makes morally gray choices, and I wasn't always comfortable with the choices she did make. Wells does a nice job of showing her inner struggle so that the reader understands her thought process and what leads her to make the decisions she makes.

But Kira is by no means the only remarkable female character in the books. Along with Kira, there's Dr. Morgan, Nandita, and--my personal favorite--Heron. All of these women are complex characters in their own right, and it's not entirely clear what their agendas are, particularly when it comes to Heron. There's none of the impression that there's anything out of the ordinary about what they're doing, not in comparison to male characters. Instead, all the characters are on equal footing, and all are as interesting, complicated, and complex as the next.

One of the big things that impressed me about this book was how nuanced a portrait it creates of the struggle between humans and Partials. Both humans and Partials do some abhorrent things, so I never felt like there was a "good" guy or a "bad" guy. I'm not opposed to there being clearly evil characters in books, but I often feel like YA books in particular distill complex moral questions to the point where they become cliched portrayals of good versus evil. In Fragments, the motivations of each group and each character have they're own sort of logic, and I thought it was easy to understand where everyone was coming from, even if I vehemently disagreed with their position.

Another nice aspect of the book is the severity of the repercussions the characters face. When they make a mistake or a wrong move, they suffer for it. I thought this was especially obvious during Kira's journey across the wasteland, and its ultimate outcome. A lot of other books I've read will talk about how hard a journey is without showing the reader just why it's so hard, but Fragments doesn't spare the details of the hardships Kira and her companions suffer, nor does anyone emerge completely unscathed.

I had thought the Partials Sequence was only meant to be two books, and I kept wondering how Wells would resolve all his plot threads by the end of this book, so I wasn't unhappy to realize there will be more books. Unlike a lot of comparable stuff on the market, Wells has plenty of story to fill at least three books, and this book suffers from none of the middle book syndrome I've encountered so much of as of late.

I have such admiration for the way this book tackles complex issues that I feel almost guilty giving it a 3.5 star rating, but the length issue and the writing, which is less than elegant at times, holds it back from reaching its full potential. Still, I'm very invested in this series and think it gets a lot of things right where other YA novels from the same genre tend to fall into simplistic traps. I'm anxious to know what will happen next.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Exciting Read but Some Flaws 13. März 2013
Von A. Hunter - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I liked this book, save for a few things. It dragged a bit much for the first half and like another reviewer left me questioning certain things. Why was AFA introduced into the story, tortured and then buried? Another annoyance was that there were a lot of grammatical and other editorial errors. Very frustrating when you are into a really good part and you have to purposely ignore errors. Better editing next time. A bit disappointed in how it ended with nothing further given about Marcus. It did leave me looking forward to the next book.

4.0 von 5 Sternen An Action-Packed Sequel 24. Mai 2013
Von Jon (Scott Reads It!) - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I read Partials so long ago that I was a bit worried about reading Fragments. I really enjoyed Partials but I worried that I would be too confused because I didn't remember anything from Partials. Dan Wells does a nice job of reminding the reader what happened previously without "infodumping". Slowly, I started to recollect the plot of Partials even though I read it around a year ago or so.

Partials is an excellent, original sci-fi book that I really enjoyed. If you thought Partials was slow-paced, Fragments is an even longer, slower paced book. I really think this book could have been edited better because there were just some parts that could have been shortened. The reason why it took me so long to read Fragments because of the sluggish pace. Fragments fluctuates from extremely intense, fast-paced action scenes that compelled me to read more, to slowly paced scenes that were tedious to read.

I love the characters Wells created especially Marcus and Kira. Honestly I vaguely remembered Marcus from Partials but after reading Fragments I don't think I'll be able to forget him. I loved Marcus's memorable wit and humor in this dark, dystopian novel. The reader gets to learn more about Kira's intriguing past. Kira is as kick-ass as ever and I'm glad she retained her fiery attitude from book one.

The romance in Fragments is very subtle and is barely in the book. Instead of focusing on romance, Wells discusses medical and scientific concepts. I love how Wells doesn't overly simplify the science, he makes the scientific concepts concise without "dumbing it down. The science nerd in me loved all of the ParaGen scientific and medical tidbits.

As always Dan Wells delivers an extremely original and interesting sci-fi book. I loved how much action Dan Wells managed to pack inside this novel. I need Ruins and I really am wondering how many books this "sequence" will consist of. Thank you to Epic Reads for providing me with an ARC of Fragments.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Almost a Complete Picture 22. Mai 2013
Von Taek04 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Fragments was an EXCELLENT sequel to Partials. In fact, I enjoyed book 2 better than book 1, I found it easier to follow. Dan Wells has once again done a fantastic job weaving a creative tapestry. Samm and Kira both grew and some of the revelations contained inside the pages of this book are quite shocking. I am on the edge of my seat waiting impatiently for book three.

Now to describe a bit of the story. Fragment continues where partials ended, with a quest for the cure. If you've read the Lord of the Rings, this book has a similar approach of hardships and trials as our crew tries to solve the RM virus and end the partials aging. If you enjoy books about romance (we have a love triangle again), adventure, and the search for answers, the Partials series is one you will want to read.

It's for this reason that I am giving this book 5/5 stars. It was a great story that gripped me all the way through, read and enjoy this dystopian paradise.

3.0 von 5 Sternen 3.5 stars--Up and Down 3. März 2013
Von KVB99 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I found Fragments to be just an okay sequel. This is a long book and large chunks of it are what I would consider to be filler material. I think you could just skip the first 400 pages and you wouldn't be missing all that much. A lot of the comings and goings of the various characters serve little purpose, and don't advance the plot or story much at all. One example of this is Afa, a new character introduced early in the book. He's an uninteresting, frankly unappealing character, but he comes into the story, hangs around for a large portion of the book and then he disappears having really added nothing at all to this story. But if you can hang in there for the last quarter of the book -- basically when Kira makes it to Denver, the magic of Partials reappears and the story picks up nicely. On the positive side, the character Marcus comes into his own--he's more mature and has a nice sense of humor. On the other hand, Kira and Samm's relationship is frustrating since Samm basically becomes Spock, so there's about as much romantic spark here as you'd find with Nurse Chapel and Spock.
