SCIENCE FICTION REVIEW: The Evolutionary Void - Peter F Hamilton

Release Date: 10/09/10


Peter F. Hamilton's startling perspectives on tomorrow's technological and cultural trends span vast tracts of space and time, his stories are as compelling as they are epic in scope, and yet they are always grounded in characters - human, alien and other - who, for all their strangeness, still touch our hearts and fire our imaginations. Now, in The Evolutionary Void , Hamilton concludes the highly acclaimed Commonwealth saga that has unfolded in The Dreaming Void and The Temporal Void .


Fan’s of Sci-Fi will no doubt have heard of Peter F Hamilton for his no nonsense hard hitting Science Fiction which looks not only into the future but seeks to delve into the psyche of mankind in this, the third and concluding part of the Void Trilogy. Well written, this no holds barred offering is something that I really couldn’t put down once I started. The prose is ideal for the material, the dialogue is sharpe and above all else it’s the characters that really make this title pop. A real gem of a title and one that will not only fulfil the readers hopes and promise but one that will hopefully establish this as one to set benchmarks by.
