He story PerfectThe main timeline The Assessment Team is presented as a kind of Canterbury Tales a series of novellas one for each main character showing their present time with the team and their recent pasts as pertinent to the mystery of the crashed unknown alien shipBetween each Tale we see the characters of Juloss in the distant future In all there are perhaps 50 characters in the story tapestry but perhaps only 20 are of real importance They are introduced gradually throughout the book no overloadSalvation coverFull size image hereInterleaved with 1 Assessment Team meetings and actions the tales are from the viewpoints of 2 Callum and Yuri corporate moguls when they were oung men 3 Alik an FBI agent extraordinaire 4 Kandara a dark ops super mercenary and 5 Feriton Kayne s corporate spy mission to the Olyix mothership Each character is beautifully portrayed with their own individual voices and historiesGradually as each superb tale is told the pieces of the central mystery become clear Clues and events are woven brilliantly into a five star tapestry The book has the feel of five or six novellas but perfectly tying into each other as we proceedMy favourite aspect of Peter s writing is his foundation in the most advanced thoughts in current scientific thinking and his incredible attention to world building and plot development Every page shows his care and love of his craft like no other author I know So many elements of the story are not only plausible but probable within the story as well as truly fascinating WowFor example At one point he mentions the thickness of rock needed to protect the Olyix from cosmic rays in their journey of millions of ears So many scientists today ignore this deadly aspect when considering trips to Mars To wit Cosmic radiation is so unstoppable and so deadly that most astronauts would get cancer within a 6 month one way trip to MarsFor myself I am extremely well read in current science and technology I say that I am a modern renaissance man as in I know everything that I don t know and Peter is right there too I love his love of science and his love of the mysteries of the universe and our place in itPeter s invention of portable uantum entangled portals of varying sizes allowing instantaneous travel anywhere is far advanced from the staid wormhole and trains systems of The Commonwealth series and is far plot flexible and liberating for the action of the storyImpression The twisted interlinking uantum portalsFull size image hereAs the first in a series of books Peter has produced not only a fascinating introduction to his new universe but also shown us how a very complicated set of characters and events can be presented without confusion and with genuine love of his creationThe ending is not a cliffhanger but a natural breakpoint in the stories We ve been guided wonderfully through Peter s vision and left wholly satisfied et eager to continue with this extraordinary new world Notes and uotesAn Olyix saysSentient species are the children of this universe the reason it existsAlexandre saysTrust is at the core of human nature one of our greatest curses and blessingsMonomolecule filaments as weaponshomage John Brunner s Stand on Zanzibar 1968 Buzz gun Alik said The gun itself was nothing special just an electromagnetic barrel to ensure the projectile accelerated smoothly But the buzz rounds it fired were mildly unstable They were made from incredibly tightly wound coils of monomolecule filament which expanded outwards on impact so the target got to experience what it was like to be sliced apart by ten thousand razor blades all travelling in different directionsAlik discussing a murderThere were two crews hit that apartment and they ripped each other apart like sharks on acidThe advent of portals makes roads obsoleteNew York City streets transformed into ribbon parks As Alik stood in the biting cold listening to Bietzk his gaze tracked along street Van Wyck s trees with their mantle of thin prickly ice as if they d grown thorns to protect themselves through the winter A mirror of the citizens who walked among them bristling with hostility and rooted in the structure of the pastI ve been here on the beach at sunrise in Rio MagicalEarly morning on Copacabana beach before the gold skinned body gods began strutting their glistening physiues for the tourists and lovelorn to envy the horizontal rays of the sun were playing across the water to create a dazzling shimmerJessika compares jungle capitalism to advanced societiesIn any decent civilization healthcare is a right not a privilegeKandara talks about fanaticsterroristsIdeology is a sick soul meme it gnaws basic decency away until Einführung in die deutsche Sprache der Wissenschaften you can self justify the most extreme acts as worthwhile to further the cause Any cause Tyle saysMore organic euivalence Real Utopial von Nueman ism Tyle to Kandara on self replicating spaceships for Utopial existenceThe industrial stations will have engulfed Bremble at which point they won t bother replicating themselves They ll just consume the remaining rock to build habitats After another fiftyears there ll be nothing left and they ll fly to new asteroids and begin again That seems almost dangerous Kandara It never starts with jackboots and black uniforms Kandara said Just good intentions But that s how it always ends Grand Homage to other sci fi mastersThe Juloss battleships mentioned in this volume are named the Paul J McAuley the Richard K Morgan and the Neal Ashe.

Y In terms of the novel s characters who are they Good or badThe central dynamic of the novel is the discovery of an unknown alien spacecraft which has crash landed on a newly discovered planet The discovery team soon determine that the spacecraft contains unknown humans in hibernation pods Were they abducted Who are they What does this meanA collection of top people from the various factions who really rule the human universe are sent in a luxurious land cruiser to investigate under top uarantine security This is to prevent any alien incursion into the human datasphere The journey takes several days which affords an opportunity in the style of the Canterbury Tales for each character to recount their back historyWhat follows is a series of engaging short stories techno thrillers with plenty of mercenaries espionage terrorism kidnappings and high tech in the trade mark Hamilton style When they reach the spacecraft the plot twist kicks in setting up the next volumeThere is a parallel storyline set hundreds of The Defense (Eddie Flynn years in the further future A group of adolescents is being trained as genetically enhanced warriors to combat aliens which remorselessly hunt humans throughout the galaxy Something bad has already happened in these people s past and they only dimly remember the characters we spend so much time with as Saints I agreed with those reviewers who assess this thread as the weakest part of the novel lacking colour and intrinsic interest with bland characters who do not really engageour interestAfter a slow start where one is continually trying to remember weird names devoid of context the book picks up through the back stories each of which is uite exciting I ll certainly be looking at volume 2 when it arrivesOther thoughts There is plenty of homage to other works of science fiction The future troops training is straight out of Ender s Game their warships have names like Morgan and McAuley the house with rooms in different worlds is like the Hyperion CantosI m appreciative of Hamilton s political skepticism He doesn t like ideologies seeing them as weapons against actually existing humanity His Utopials exemplifying politically correct liberalism are creepily self righteous and rather repulsive Is there a broader message here some zeitgeist concern which Hamilton is seeking to addressIn an interview with SyFyWire Hamilton said To some degree it s about the level of trust and mistrust that s developing in the the political arena with everyone suspicious of anyone who isn t on their side I managed to blend that paranoia with a whodunnit as five people from different factions embark on a trip together Peter F Hamilton has now got to be regarded as one of the best sci fi story tellers around In my mind he s overtaken Neal Asher and Alister Reynolds I loved this book and could not fault it Having come off the back of having finally read Jack Mcdevitts massively disappointing Cauldron this was like a breath of fresh air I m eager for the next installment There is little doubt that Peter Hamilton is a literary genius Unfortunately he seems to have adopted every form of political correctness to the detriment of what would be a fantastic story It seems that 98% at least of all of the characters are homosexualbisexualtransgender or in a biracial relationship The continuous repetition of that theme was disruptive to the flow of what otherwise would have been a wonderful novel If this book was a cake it would be made up from 95% icing and whipped cream It looks great and is tasty in small parts but is basically extremely unsatisfying to get throughThe real beginning to the series only starts in the last dozen pages of the book and the rest is background and filler Such a wasteThe chapter structure is unnecessarily rigid and makes the entire book feels forcedThere are weird spellingterminology changes that don t add anything for me the whole he she thing Hai nhà yes I get it Very clever conjoining the words because of the hermaphroditic nature of the species but it just comes across as an overly thought out literary device to meI could go onThis is far from Hamilton s best work I m a lifelong fan of PFH and up until his last book have read and enjoyed everything that he s writtenI read the first chapter of Salvation via my Kindle sample and though it was good and then bought the book The second chapter was totally boring and irrelevant seemed like it was just there to make up a word count Got to chapter 4 and we re about to embark on a historical narrative about how two people met Stopped reading Peter ifou re reading this what on earth has happened to Harry Potter a Me Ka Pōhaku Akeakamai: Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone in Hawaiian you Night Without Stars was too slow for me too You ve lost me as a fan sorry I hopeou get what Falling Through Clouds you used to have back 5 Stars Completely utterly brilliantWow So nice to be immersed again in Peter s wonderful flowing prose and extraordinary narrative precision No one considers and plans every aspect of their books like Hamilton and it showsThis first book is an introduction to the characters and situations of the series presented along two timelines with the first The Assessment Team about 150 200ears in the future around the time of the alien Olyix ship arrival in 2144 and another Juloss about 580 600 ears after the arrivalThese two timelines are extraordinarily well written as ou would expect from Hamilton and interleaved perfectly The switch between the narrative timelines occurs only 6 times in the 550 page book at natural points in Manitys extinction It will be up to the team to bring back answers and the conseuences of this voyage will change everythingBack on Earth we can now make deserts bloom and extend lifespans indefinitely so humanity seems invulnerable We therefore welcomed the Olyix to Earth when they contacted us They needed fuel for their pilgrimage across the galaxy and in exchange they helped us.
Thought I was sitting down to enjoy another relaxing sci fi read by my favorite author Instead felt like I enrolled in a gender studies course Gave up after first few chapters of trying to read non binary pronouns I am a big fan of Peter Hamilton but this book was a slog Lot of jumping around in time and unnecessarily detailed descriptions of things I couldn t care less about The first third of the book was the worst Umptee I m a big fan of Hamilton he s one of the few authors where I ve got the entire back catalogue This is him at his best brilliant world building and exotic future tech presented and then ripped apart to show that humanity never really changes I don t understand why this book is getting so many negative reviews I can only think that it s because it reads very much like a short story collection somewhat like A Second Chance at Eden and if ou don t like that then fair enough Personally I think it works really well and the foreshadowing and callbacks are done to perfection It also makes the book much manageable to read I mean I love the world in Great North Road for instance but that book is just soooooo longThere a few tropes coming in from his earlier work some played straight and some subverted and the first SF plot twist to completely catch me out for a number of ears Highly recommended Most of the great hallmarks of Peter F Hamilton are here An intriguing concept portals brought fully to life and fleshed out Dozens of characters Multiple timelines who are related in an unknown wayIn many ways this book resembles the first two Hyperion books and in all of the best ways There are 4 or 5 short stories as a chapter each telling a great story A murder mystery a spy thriller assassins vs assassins an idealistic society struggling with crimes they can t comprehend So much of that is greatThere are problems though First and maybe I m being politically incorrect is the gender stuff Various characters across the timelines are neither female nor male but non binary To handle this Hamilton uses a series of pronouns hir shie that for whatever reason are extremely annoying to read They would catch my eye as being spelling errors and take me a second to process It made those chapters just a bit less fun to readThere s also the subplot taking place in the far future that doesn t uite resonate but maybe it ll get better It started off with a brutally boring sporting event that went on way too long as an introduction to the main two characters in the future I skipped a good 20 pages of whatever uidditchRugbySoccer sport they were playing and don t think I missed any important detailsFinally in the main timeline for the 5 main characters he bounces around which person we re following and for me it was difficult to remember the characters until towards the end of the book after we finished each of their short stories on how they ended up in the investigationBut there s a lot of great stuff What Peter F Hamilton does better than any other scifi author is take a core concept in this case portals and fully explore it It was crazy inventive to follow a murder mystery across 7 planets because some rich guy s house is really 7 different rooms each on a different planet connected by a portal You can totally buy a rich person doing that The use of the prison planet The use of portals as a fancy garbage shootSo I m going to read this series and I m sure it ll work out great like all of his other epics I m sure I ll get used to the gender pronouns I ve learned the characters and I m anxious to see where the story goes I understand that writing is hard I m not a writer because I don t have the patience or talent to sit down and write a full and complex novel However I just can t sit back and let this utter meandering and nonsensical abomination go unreviewed This book feels forced on every level and I can t understand why it comes so highly reviewed by so many readers It can t just be me who thinks that this is a terrible read It is written in a way that pats itself on the back for being on the right side of social justice knowing that it will be well received regardless of the actual content and flow of story If A Menagerie of Heroes you want to support modern issues and solutions to them written within then by all means spendour money on this book If Mr. Fix-It you actually finish the entire book and still enjoyed it then I respect that as well This the first of another door stopping trilogy is a mid future space opera set in a world structured by instantaneous transfer portals spatial entanglement nope wouldn t work should have stuck with wormholesHumankind has terraformed and colonised the planets around a number of the nearer starsou still need a spacecraft to emplace that far
