Pandora's Star review

I finally finished Pandora’s star and It was really great. It is a total immersion ride, which takes us all across this new universe; rendered almost life like by Mr.Hamilton detailed descriptions of these numerous worlds, cultures and histories.

Even more, the characters are so well made, that I fell in love with everyone of the protagonist, the good guys and the bad guys alike -If you could qualify any of these characters as such- I could even understand the aliens’ point of view!

The story builds up slowly, but steadily- I could hardly put the book down in the last couple of hundreds pages- but all the strands of the tale are most interesting and entertaining, furthermore they give an abundance of background info on the societies, culture and humans of that universe.

Once more, Mr. Hamilton has constructed a magnificent space opera, with many believable scientific contraption, entrancing characters and thrilling plot lines. I can’t wait for the next installment.
