The entire universe that Hamilton created seems like it could actually happen in the distant future. You will never forget this story. Pure excellence!
I plan to. The culmination of this series is by far and away the best. As with his last trilogy, the finally does feel a bit to tidy. But then again i can appreceate the detail in which he closes every single avenue.
Vengeance is sweet. There are certain characters that just beg for death and the way in which it is delivered is so just that if this were a movie, the entire theater would have exclaimed in jublulent satisfaction.
Luckily his broad spectum of voices is decernable and a majhority of the time he is able to switch between them flawlessly. There are no specific characters that he portrays better than another but by far and away my favorite was Aaron.
Laughter and a bit of heart strings pulled ofr sure, and I'm not a sensitive man.
enough twist and turns to keep me up many nights to rush to the finish. the author did a fantastic job of melding the separate story-lines.
A wonderful blend of old and new a story that could support it's own but is a wonderful connection to his previous work.
A fantastic wrap to this slice of the "Commonwealth" universe. Keep them coming!!! There are never-ending servings that should be had from this extraordinary world-building saga. Thanks!!!
I focus mainly on History, Endurance Sports and Science/Speculative Fiction books.
The complexity of the story line was consuming. What I think the best fiction does it draws you in to a world and takes you away from the day to day of life. This series of books fit the bill - and then some.This book is the resolution of the 4 previous books - Pandora's Star, Judas Unchained, The Dreaming Void, The Temporal Void and the Evolutionary Void.
Story lines going back to the first book were pulled through and resolved.Complicated and clever.
Everything. Voice inflection, pace, emotion. I am shocked how he can do such a great job over a story this length. Its amazing.
The ending made perfect sense and was mildly shocking at the same time
In my view this is series for real fans of Sci Fi. If you loved Asimov, Clarke and modern epic Sci Fi like Simmons you will enjoy it. But it takes an investment of time and focus to keep up with the story and characters. I enjoy that. There an additional complexity with the actual science that made this additionally challenging, but also rewarding. The audible problems that the reviewers mentioned are in the entire series, but in the end they did not diminish the experience at all. I highly recommend this series and I am happy to have experienced it.
