Critics have compared the engrossing space operas of Peter F. Hamilton to the classic sagas of such SF giants as Isaac Asimov and Frank Herbert. But Hamilton's bestselling fiction-powered by a fearless imagination and world-class storytelling skills-has also earned him comparison to Tolstoy and Dickens. Hugely ambitious, wildly entertaining, philosophically stimulating: the novels of Peter F. Hamilton will change the way you think about science fiction. Now, with Pandora's Star, he begins a new multivolume adventure, one that promises to be his most mind-blowing yet. The year is 2380. The Intersolar Commonwealth, a sphere of stars some 400 light-years in diameter, contains more than 600 worlds, interconnected by a web of transport "tunnels" known as wormholes. At the farthest edge of the Commonwealth, astronomer Dudley Bose observes the impossible: Over 1,000 light-years away, a starvanishes. It does not go supernova. It does not collapse into a black hole. It simply disappears. Since the location is too distant to reach by wormhole, a faster-than-light starship, the Second Chance, is dispatched to learn what has occurred and whether it represents a threat. In command is Wilson Kime, a five-time rejuvenated ex-NASA pilot whose glory days are centuries behind him.Opposed to the mission are the Guardians of Selfhood, a cult that believes the human race is being manipulated by an alien entity they call the Starflyer. Bradley Johansson, leader of the Guardians, warns of sabotage, fearing the Starflyer means to use the starship's mission for its own ends.Pursued by a Commonwealth special agent convinced the Guardians are crazy but dangerous, Johansson flees. But the danger is not averted. Aboard the Second Chance, Kime wonders if his crew has been infiltrated. Soon enough, he will have other worries. A thousand light-years away, something truly incredible is waiting: a deadly discovery, the unleashing of which will threaten to destroy the Commonwealthand humanity itself. Could it be that Johansson was right?… (mais)

I will read Judas Unchained to see where Hamilton takes the story. I am still undecided on what I think of the book. Maybe I am getting older, but the society he creates around worm holes and relife technology actually reflects the Hell that C S Lewis pictured.
Plotting and action are good. Character development is fine. Technology lingo can be a little distracting at times. It still is worth the read. ( )

I've read this and Judas Unchained three times now (over at least 15 years), and feel like I'm starting to get a handle on them. There are a lot of characters to keep track of, and a lot of story lines, weaving in and out of each other to make a wonderful pattern. The Police Detective, Paula Myo, sticks out in my memory. When I first encountered her this time around, I found myself getting excited for her part of the story. Melanie Roscorro, on the other hand, I found to be way more cringy than I remembered. She had most of the sex scenes, which were more explicit than they needed to be to service the story.

I'm looking forward to reading the duology again some day. I'm getting old, and not usually interested in revisiting books, but these had so much going on that I think I will enjoy them at least one more time.

Well that's part one of an essentially2,300 page novel! I wasn't sure he was going to keep all the various strands running smoothly in parallel, but so far so good. An epic space opera, with great characters, page-turning prose and a barn-storming plot. What more could you ask for? ( )

Entertaining space opera. Doesn't really end and has sequel. ( )

This was a chore for me. Not because it wasn't good but because I guess I read slow and the time I have to read is limited. Content wise, this was an awesome book, I love the operatic nature of it and the sense of wonder. I really did not get bored anywhere along the way, which can happen easily for me. ( )

Mars completely dominated space outside the Ulysses, the bloated dirty-ginger crescent of a planet that never quite made it as a world.(Prologue)
