    Peter F Hamilton-Audiobooks (Misspent Youth)

    Hi PFH Fans, If you follow my threads you see I'm very much into consuming content in written and audio formats. I like to read a chapter and then listen to one in the car or at the gym. This allows me to get thru books faster then just reading them when time permits. That said, today's book...

    Peter F Hamilton-Audiobooks (Judas Unchained)

    Greetings. I've recently started to listen to PFH's audiobooks. As you can imagine from the written versions, the audio versions are long. I was pointed to Pandora' Star from a family member and have ordered it up from a local library on CD. If memory serves its like 19 CDs. The sequel...

    The Saints of Salvation by Peter F Hamilton

    The third book in Hamilton’s Salvation sequence, and it feels like there must be at least one more to come. This is classic Hamilton; a vast millennia- and galaxy-spanning canvas. A multithreaded plot with threads running in the near and far future which he manages to bring together brilliantly...

    Salvation Lost by Peter F Hamilton

    Note that if you haven’t read the first book this review contains spoilers. Salvation Lost is the second book in this trilogy and has confirmed it as being absolute classic Hamilton at his best. I’m loving his accustomed fantastic in-depth world building, the vast scope of the setting and his...

    (spoiler talk) Nigel Sheldon question (void trilogy)

    So I'm reading the Evolutionary Void. I read the commonwealth saga and also the first two void books. I remember that Nigel Sheldon ended up going to a different galaxy using his Ark ships. However I also remember Nigel Sheldon being inside AnA but not speaking during that tribunal scene where...

    (spoiler talk) Judas Unchained. Ozzie's past crimes?

    I'm reading the void trilogy now, read the commonwealth saga several years ago so I'm trying to remember all the little details of lore that may have slipped my mind. In Judas Unchained there was this following excerpt: Ozzie was now nowhere to be seen. They’d had a late breakfast together...

    Where is the Peter F. Hamilton thread?

    I'm new here and found it very curious that Peter F. Hamilton does not have a forum in the authors section. He is without question a giant in the hard sci fi and space opera genre and yet he seems to be missing. Wondering if there is a reason for this or it just that it has not been started...

    Any Other Peter F. Hamilton Fans?

    Like the title says- I noticed he doesn't have his own subforum. Personally, I'm increasingly impressed by him the more I read. He writes great space combat, especially in the Night's Dawn trilogy, which is probably his worst work (and it's still pretty darn good, with quite a few flashes of...

    Banks or Hamilton?

    I have not read very much of the newer sci fi so in the new year I am either going to tackle Iain Banks (Culture) or Peter Hamilton beginning with Night's Dawn. I can't decide which one so what do you recommend/vote for? Compare them if you read both. Either one of those would be a huge...

    Peter Hamilton alike books

    From all my Sci-Fi books I've read Peter Hamilton is by far the best I've read. I've read both The Commonwealth Saga and Night's Dawn Trilogy. I'm looking for somethings like those books. Sc-Fi in overdrive: space colonization, aliens, war, high tech weapons, cloning, etc. all is permitted...

    Peter F Hamilton - Second Chance at Eden

    I recently stumbled across 'A Second Chance at Eden' in an old box of books, given to me by my Dad. At the time, the author wasn't familiar, and I had no pre-conceptions of what I might encounter. The first story had me gripped, and left me with a deep impression. The rest of the stories...
