    Britain's bestselling SF writer returns to outer space.In AD 2329, humanity has colonised over four hundred planets, all of them interlinked by wormholes. With Earth at its centre, the Intersolar Commonwealth now occupies a sphere of space approximately four hundred light years across.When an astronomer on the outermost world of Gralmond, observes a star 2000 light years distant - and then a neighbouring one - vanish, it is time for the Commonwealth to discover what happened to them.

    Terry says: "Long Winded But Enjoyable"
    "Excellent book, narration could be better"
    Overall

    A word of warning, don't buy this book unless you plan to get the second (Judas Unchained). It's really one book split into two, so the story ends abruptly in book one.

    Pandora's Star/Judas Unchained is a true science fiction epic, it intertwines the various stories of disperate characters together with a complex plot that gradually builds to a dramatic and satisfying climax.

    I wasn't blown away by the narrator; he manages to give distinct voices to the characters and generally gives enough emphasis and inflection to keep things interesting, but he doesn't sound particualy enthused and failed to draw me in at times. Also, he has an annoying habit of stressing the beginning of every sentence and trailing off towards the end. I found this distracting, but it's probably a matter of taste.
