    Putting this one on hold after listening to roughly 5 hours of the audiobook, which is about 140 pages. I like Callum and Savi, but generally I do not care about the story. Not sure if my lack of interest is the book?s fault or due to my usual atumnal reading slump. Last year was ...

    I loved the book which will be a top 10 of the year for me and I am really eager for the sequel. For more detail I highly recommend Mark's Goodreads review (link below) as it is spot-on: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show... A few shoutouts I would mention that add to the fun ...

    This is my most anticipated release of 2018, and I was extremely fortunate to get an early advance copy. I won?t say much to avoid spoilers, but Salvation was very good ? typical Hamilton. It has a similar feel to Pandora?s Star or Fallen Dragon, if anything, but it?s also a ve...

    Hamilton starts a new series by interweaving several stories. First we have a mysterious landing of aliens infiltrating our world that form the prologue and obviously are very significant. But the story moves elsewhere making us wonder how this short act will play out. Then we have the...

    3.5 stars? You'll definitely get the dense future world building Hamilton is known for, and some philosophical talks and intense action sequences. He doesn't shy away from the sex either. This is book one of three, so you won't get too far into the alien ship plot. But the ending is de...

    (just in case, apologies for my English) Devoured! I am a fan (or a fanboy) of Peter F. Hamilton. However I "only" give Salvation three and half stars, considering that it is the first of a trilogy, and I prefer to read the rest of the novels, as soon as they are published (sigh ...

    Most of the book is the backstories of the main characters investigating the alien ship (I was surprised how much of it was backstory), with occasional returns to the current setting. I found some sections a bit slow (eg the flagball game section near the start), but many parts engr...

    Salvation is the first book of a trilogy. For a first book, I had a hard time while reading it. It reminded me too much of another book as far as the way it was written and some of the concepts in the book. Once I got that other book in my head it was hard to not make comparisons. Most...

    Under normal circumstances, I would normally rate a book like this lower because the setup leaves us hanging, but this is PETER F HAMILTON we're talking about. That means, if you're picking up the first book in one of his trilogies, no matter how long each individual book might be, you...

    It's definitely a Peter Hamilton book, corporations run by humans with extended lives, decent white male characters, some kick ass women, creepy aliens and lashings of descriptions. Every meal, house or outfit is seemingly described to within an inch of its life. The plot is a combi...

    I wanted to read this book because I have been so impressed with other books written by Peter Hamilton. I am so glad I didn't have much of any idea what the story would be about so I could discover everything for myself. I think the book blurb gives away too much of the story the autho...

    Quite possibly my most anticipated novel of 2018 and it did not disappoint. Superb storytelling, just as we'd expect from this extraordinary writer, matched by the novel's vision and ambition. And, blimey, where it takes us! This is going to be a wonderful trilogy. Its beginning couldn...

    As a definite space opera and PFH fan, I was bound to sink my teeth into this one and most likely enjoy it. But, there's no undue bias here when I say that this book is simply superb. There's no other way to describe it and this new standalone series from PFH certainly looks like it's ...

    This was the first time I've read anything by Peter Hamilton. I found the sci-fi future tech fascinating and enjoyed the future he created. Salvation's storyline is told using the past, present, and future. 5 people are investigating a crashed alien ship and on their way, each tell...

    Well, this took me a really long time to read! It starts out with a very interesting story about a crashed alien spaceship. Unfortunately, this story barely gets any page time until right at the end because most of the book is bogged down in not very interesting background stories f...

    I never thought I would say PFH is boring. But exactly that?s what I said up around 20%. Given the fact that I eagerly awaited this one to appear, I couldn?t believe I would not like one of his works. Luckily, the story picks up from there and delivers. What a relief! There are ...

    Very Hamiltonian novel. Having read all his sci-fi work multiple times, Salvation contained a pool of recognition. We got the aliens, the portals, the supersmart detectives and ditto criminals, the rich and powerful old boys and the planetary imperium, all described in Hamiltons great ...

    This is my first Hamilton novel, which is kind of weird. I've heard amazing things about his other stuff but it felt like a lot to dig into so seeing this new world I thought I'd give it a go. We have two separate story lines. One in the present and the other in the future. However we ...

    Ever since Pandora?s Star, Peter F. Hamilton seems to be forever stuck in an ever-repetitive story about wormhole-based human expansion across the stars. Whether he names his built-in digital assistant ?e-butler?, ?secondary thought routines? or ?mInet?, every novel of hi...

    As you know, although I own every single title Peter F. Hamilton has released over the years, other than the stand-alone novels I'm really far behind when it comes to his series. I've finally begun the Night's Dawn trilogy earlier this year and was planning on reading The Neutronium Al...

    I received an advanced copy for an honest review. I enjoy Peter Hamilton's books but this one took me a long time to get through. It almost feels like short stories. There is a main story of youths preparing for war against a big evil. We get to know them and how they progress on their...
