The Dreaming Void by Peter F Hamilton

Rating 8.9/10
I confess I find Hamilton powerfully addictive.

I confess I find Hamilton powerfully addictive. The sheer epic scope of the Void series shows he has learned the lessons of the Commonwealth Saga. The threads are less, the number of core characters we have to follow restricted and there is less frivolity in the action we follow. The entire Ozzie-bohemian style thread in the Commonwealth Saga was over-narrated and irritating to the point of being skim read by this reviewer; the exuberant descriptions of Mellanie Rescorai's erotic lifestyle just unnecessary; the interminable passages about the anti-Starflyer warrior bands on Far Away... all gone in the Void. The book is superior to Pandora's Star or Judas Unchained because of it. Be warned, you need to commit time to Hamilton. The sheer length of his books will take you a full four days to read in one dedicated set of sittings and you'll be drawn into them like a soap opera... eager to move on and read the next bit of the story. Well worth it and hugely satisfying. I have found time to squeeze this review in whilst Kindling the second one. My evening is planned...
