Peter F. Hamilton (1996)

Science fiction on a epic scale. You can hear the echoes of many modern writers in this work, perhaps most clearly William Gibson and Iain M. Banks, but it’s also positive and heroic in the way that Robert Heinlein and E.E.“Doc” Smith were: there’s no loss of confidence in the face of danger. A lot of the set pieces are wonderful, as are the descriptions of the technology and its implications. I’m looking forward to the other two books of the trilogy.

4/5. Finished Sunday 29 July, 2018.
