Publisher's Summary

From one of the world's best-selling science-fiction writers: the complete and unabridged audio of this tense and thrilling epic, read by Toby Longworth.

AD 3580. The Intersolar Commonwealth has spread through the galaxy to over a thousand star systems. It is a culture of rich diversity with a place for everyone. Even death itself has been overcome. But at the centre of the Commonwealth is a massive black hole. This Void is not a natural artefact. Inside there is a strange universe where the laws of physics are very different to those we know. It is slowly consuming the other stars of the galactic core - one day it will devour the entire galaxy.

Inigo, a human, has started to dream of a wonderful existence in the Void. He has a following of millions of believers and they now clamour to make a pilgrimage into the Void to live the life they have been shown. Other starfaring species fear their migration will cause the Void to expand again. They are prepared to stop them no matter what the cost.

And so the pilgrimage begins....

    "Promising continuation of a great saga"
    Any additional comments?

    Voices of some of the original characters grated with me. Prefer the original series narrator.

    "Disappointing ending"

    Didn't leave me wanting more, just perplexed why it was left at that point..... I wanted more of indigo's dreams and the possibility of passing through the void, albeit I enjoyed the story overall.

    Story
    "Hours of my life - gone - never to be seen again!"
    Was The Dreaming Void worth the listening time?

    I've really enjoyed other books by Peter Hamilton, but I have to admit that the only thing that got me to the end of this one was the excellent Toby Longworth. There's far too much technical detail to keep track of, the sheer number of characters is mind boggling and the story switches between any number of scenes so frequently that I lost track. On top of all that I dragged myself to the end only to find the story line left completely in mid air where books two and three carry on. I'm left not even knowing how each of the story lines ties in to each other. There's no way I'm putting myself through all of that again, so this has been a waste of 22 hours of my life! This is nothing more than a licence to print money. For heavens sake, at least make each book a discreet story in it's own right!

    "Story: Great! - Narration: Poor..."

    Great story by Hamilton. However, narration lacking, especially character voices that almost seems like parody. Such a shame!

    Story
    "What a book!"
    If you could sum up The Dreaming Void in three words, what would they be?

    Dreamy intricate and epic


    What does Toby Longworth bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    This was a really excellent reading and I think it was a big part of the reason I fell in love with this book.


    Any additional comments?

    I was really blown away with this book at first I was not sure if I even liked it and I was I unsure if I wanted to stick with it, but by the end, I was totally hooked I will defiantly be buying the second one. This book is dated but that really makes no difference to this totaly engrossing story.

    Story
    "Yet another great trilogy !"
    If you could sum up The Dreaming Void in three words, what would they be?

    Exciting, descriptive and in grossing.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Which one to choose ! I think for me it would be Inigo the main character. He has a certain type of innocence, his feeling of awkwardness around other people.


    What does Toby Longworth bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    The accents of the many characters. And the many characters that are easy to get to know.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Inigo and his feelings of awkwardness in normal clothes rather than his space suit that gives him familiarity and comfort.


    Any additional comments?

    Another brilliant trilogy, I can't wait to listen to the next !

    Story
    "Middle of 5 books narrated by different person...."
    What did you like most about The Dreaming Void?

    Awesome story.


    What other book might you compare The Dreaming Void to, and why?

    Middle of 5 novels.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Toby Longworth’s performances?

    Inappropriate for Toby Longworth to provide totally different character voices to the other 4 novels in the series.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Read it 3 times now it is so entertaining.


    Any additional comments?

    You have to find the original reading of this book by John Lee to get any consistency with the other 4 novels. I had to stop listening to Toby Longworth, after listening to John Lee's voices for the characters for the last 60 hours it made no sense for them to have totally different voices. Fortunately, John Lee returns for the final 2 novels.

    I am a big fan of Peter F Hamilton and The Void Trilogy does not disappoint. A big universe with characters that you feel you know.
