Customer Review

on August 28, 2010
I wanted to go slow. I really did. I'm a huge Peter F. Hamilton fan, and I really wanted to slowly savor each chapter of The Evolutionary Void, but it's like trying to eat M&Ms one at a time. I don't have that kind of control. Other reviewers have given you a pretty good blow-by-blow account of the over-all story, so I'll stay away from that. And, as others have mentioned, the Void Trilogy actually began in Hamilton's earlier works, Pandora's Star and Judas Unchained. And while you don't need to read those books to enjoy this trilogy, they do lay the groundwork for a lot of what plays out in these three books. Peter F. Hamilton is known for his grand epics and this is no exception. (We actually follow two major stories throughout the trilogy, and I found myself so engrossed in one that would completely forget about the other.) Hamilton takes his huge cast of characters from the Dreaming Void and Temporal Void and brings them, ultimately, to a conclusion that is extremely satisfying. In fact, the very end of this book was so touching and pitch-perfect, it was the ending I didn't know I wanted until I read it. I can't recommend this book, and the Void Trilogy, highly enough. And as I mentioned in the title, I've been a big fan of the unabridged audio versions, along with the narrator, John Lee. When it comes out, I'm getting it.
