  • dull and boring

    wish i could give a rating of zero stars. i borrowed this book from my local library and got around 250 to 300 pages in and basically gave up. very, very boring and just couldn't get into it. This book is nothing like his other books and is very boring, would reccomend not reading

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Loved it!

    An intricately woven take that has more layers than an onion. Peter brings all his knowledge and experience from his previous books and expands on it further, culminating in a gripping mystery that will have you on the edge of your seat the whole time. Now the big wait until the next installment!

  • Disappointed

    I am a great fan of this author but this book was confusing to read, cliched, portrayed obvious pseudo science and was unnecessarily wordy. I found most of the characters lacked depth and made up futuristic sounding syntax did not jell with obvious 21st century attitudes and language. An advanced alien race worried about a god at the end of time loving them??? Really!!! I won't be buying the overpriced next instalment.

  • Good but not great

    When one starts reading a Peter F Hamilton novel one knows what to expect - a huge cast of characters, brilliantly imagined technology and a well designed plot. "Salvation " is no different. It's particularly well structured around shorter individual narratives. Like all books from this author, though, characters are relatively two -dimensional and while a plethora of new ideas and dilemmas is laid before us, none are explored in any depth. Read it for fun.

  • Salvation

    Bit of a slog as this is the only first part. Doesn't have the instant grab and sense of wonder of Peter's previous efforts. I personally do not like the two parts of the story, ie, current and future events being told at the same time. One thing that remains consistent is his ability to create an antagonist with all of the advantages with no clear sign of how the 'good guys' are going to win. The two stories have been left such that I look forward to the next installment to see how the problems are going to resolve.

    Thanks for your feedback!
