Description

In 2204, humanity is expanding into the wider galaxy in leaps and bounds. Cutting-edge technology of linked jump gates has rendered most forms of transportation - including starships - virtually obsolete. Every place on Earth, every distant planet humankind has settled, is now merely a step away from any other. And all seems wonderful - until a crashed alien spaceship of unknown origin is found on a newly located world 89 light-years from Earth, carrying a cargo as strange as it is horrifying. To assess the potential of the threat a high-powered team is dispatched to investigate. But one of them may not be all they seem....

Bursting with tension and big ideas, Salvation is the first book of an all-new series that highlights the inventiveness of an author at the top of his game.

Ce que les critiques en disent

“Peter F. Hamilton smashes through the crazy battlefield of space opera like a giant all-conquering war-robot. His newest is loud, proud, and beyond epic. Accept no substitutes, this is the real deal. You need Salvation, my friend.” (Ian McDonald, author of the Luna series)

Good story but slow at first

Overall a well-written book with a decent plot. Reading the book would have been a bit less confusing as some of the pronouns for the omnisexuals (S/he and he/r) weren't properly verbally explained but have been obvious in print.

Slower start but amazing ending

As title suggests the book starts out a little slow and the narration was somewhat confusing in the beginning before you sort out that different timelines are being utilized.

Gender neutral pronouns were used for various characters and it took me an embarrassing amount of time to realize what was going on so it was a little confusing for a while.

Overall great beginning to what I hope will be a truly epic story.

So unbelievably dull

The narrator just put me to sleep. No emotion in the narration and just offering a dull mono-tone story telling. Reminds me of Rick and Morty's light house keeper's play.

An unexpected dud

I loved the Commonwealth Saga but this reads like a third rate tumblr fan-fic in comparison.

Interesting story, painful listen.

Tangled story, interesting but a little hard to follow due to the story jumping back and forth between plot threads.

Unfortunately for me the listen was quite difficult, even painful. The narrator has a pleasant enough voice, but his character accents layered over his natural accent created a lot of confusion for me. His rhythm, a bit of a lilt at the end of each sentence, combined with his decrease in volume at the end of nearly every sentence was a huge distraction for me. He even has a bit of James T. Kirk in him, with many sentences spoken as if there was a. period. after. every. word. Very distracting. It took me several listening sessions to get somewhat used to his style, but even as the book drew to a close I'd still find myself focusing on the style of reading rather than the story.

I'm afraid I won't be purchasing subsequent volumes in this story if they are read by the same narrator.

Hamilton read by Lee, what else do you want?

One of the greatest science fiction writer of this age read by the greatest voice in audiobooks. It's is a very tantalising start to a new series, can't wait for the rest, this is pure Peter F. Hamilton delight.

Horrible narration

Couldn't listen more than one chapter. Story seems to be promising, but.. another time, I guess, when I have time for paperback.

Wait For Book 2

I had patiently waited almost 2 years for a new Peter F. Hamilton book, and, unfortunately, as expected _Salvation_ is a 19 hour introduction to this new series. It's a series of short stories setting up the arc with the bulk of the stories being back story for the main protagonists. Anyone who has read his Commonwealth series will see many similarities, though this is not the same universe. While not a bad book, I was quickly aware that no real progress was going to made, just lots of groundwork being laid so my advice is to wait for at least the second book to be published where some progress might actually be made in the plot.

Fan of the commonwealth? Lower your expectations

I love the author's series the Commonwealth and had a hard time putting them down but unfortunately this one was hard to finish.

the Bland characters doing nothing of consequence that seems until the very end of the book makes it a tedious read that feels like a very very long prologue.

that isn't to say it is not well written it just feels like it is only the introduction to an actual novel, I can say that I will purchase the next book in the series but I hope it is not in three different time periods as well. It didn't really work out for this book

What’s up with John Lee?

I’ve been a fan of John Lee for quite some time. Particularly with the Peter F Hamilton books. For some reason his default accent is some Transylvanian vampire voice that nobody comes across in the real world. It’s very distracting from the fabulous story.

One of the great things about listening to an audiobook is listening to the skill of the narrator with voices. In the past John Lee has been one of the best so I don’t get this default voice that he is using. Cancer sounds like — I don’t know — just terrible. Not even a woman. More like just a vampire or zombie or something else awful.

I am loving the story — as usual with Peter of Hamilton bucks.

I really hope Jonlee re-works his voices before the next installment of the series. I am totally fine with him changing every single one of the voices into some other voice.

Waste of time

Maybe this tale is interesting if not involving, somewhere near the level of the Bobiverse. Ok, maybe that's hoping for way too much. I couldn't make it past chapter 6. The narration was just too impenetrable, off-putting, dense. Some of that might be the text, as there is a fair bit of description, some of it fairly technical, though generally I enjoy that if it's at all logical or at least possible. The narrator gives each character pretty much the same voice, so it's hard to tell which character is speaking at times. And he tends to drop his voice at the end of sentences to almost inaudible levels. Life is too short to spend 15 more hours trying to get into this one.

if Dan Simons and Peter Hamilton wrote a book

Far to much like other PFH books with a very similar structure to Hyperion. A fun read, but nothing we haven't seen before. The narrator was fantastic as always.

Nothing like his other works.

I absolutely loved the Void Trilogy and was really excited to see a new series available. Unfortunately, I found this book to be common, plodding, droning, pedantic and boring. I couldn't make it. So sad, I really wanted to like it.

boring. too much time in minutiae.

boring. couldn't bring myself to finish it. felt like he was getting paid by the word. not sure how much the narrator helped or hindered the story. I just cant. I like him as an author too but this has had no redeeming qualities in the first 3 hours and I had to stop.

Not enjoyable

I really wanted to like this book; I am a fan of Hamilton's other work such as the Commonwealth Saga and the Void Trilogy. This book showed promise but failed in form. The premise of the story was solid and the science fiction world was great. The book was more like an Anthology within the same universe.The stories within the book are meshed together and done so in a way that it feels like a whirlwind. And within the whirlwind of past, present and future the characters are telling additional stories. Its 15 stories in one and it was not enjoyable.

I wasn't able to get going on this one...

I have to remember not to get books with John Lee as the Narrator. He has this weird syncopation to his reading that just distracts me so bad. I know most of the time he is reading "in character" but it annoys me no end. As to the book, several times I found myself saying out loud "I have no idea what is going on here!" so... Love Peter F Hamilton but... pass. Wish I could return it...
