Entertaining and tension-filled scenes and dialogue, but I didn't end up rooting for any of the characters--mostly egocentric, shallow, and vain or humdrum. Funny how people can be so concerned about their looks and sex in such a technologically advanced civilization--some have actually left their physical bodies! Really exciting technology, which, unfortunately, wasn't expounded on in any meaningful way. Inigo's dreams came across as run-of-the-mill medieval fantasy. Nevertheless quite entertaining with a solid dose of heart-pounding cyborg action. ( )

This Guy can write and besides is also invent a universe that works over two book series. It is just a joy to read this book. ( )

The Dreaming Void is much in the vein of Hamilton's post-Greg Mandel work - that is a door-stop sized tome of space opera. The technical approach is also the same as the Night's Dawn Trilogy and the Commonwealth Saga; a large set of characters are introduced with very little apparent connection between them at the outset but as events proceed, those connections become more apparent.

Another year, another attempt to bolster my page count by reading one of Peter F. Hamilton's series. This year I'm going through his Void trilogy, a sequel of sorts to his Commonwealth Saga that I read last year.

Opening this book up on Monday night I discovered I was the proud owner of a signed copy of The Dreaming Void. I've no idea why my copy is signed. Fortunately I thoroughly enjoyed the book, it'd be kind of awkward if the only signed book I owned turned out to be awe-inspiringly atrocious.

Now I'm familiar with Hamilton's "big" science fiction works I knew the score with this book, so I figuratively tore through the first hundred or so pages, bravely refusing to panic while more and more characters were introduced. Sure enough, once all the threads have been lain on the table, Hamilton starts to carefully weave them together in interesting and often unexpected ways. The only problem I had with the Commonwealth Saga was its rather tiresome second half; hopefully Hamilton manages to keep the quality consistently high throughout all three of these books, but only time will tell.

The starship CNE Caragana slipped down out of a night sky, its grey and scarlett hull illuminated by the pale iridescence of the massive ion storms which beset space for lightyears in every direction.
