  • This is a tale of two books I think the Inigo s dream chapters dragged this book down a notch from the previous installment of the Void trilogy Hamilton seems to have spent alot time with Edeard than in the universe outside the void, which I thought was much compelling There was one particularly cringe worthy sequence that went on and on for pages describing Edeard s romantic retreat with his bride to be Then there were awful wedding pages, ceremonies, and generally women flinging themselves a [...]


  • In this middle book of the series the motivations and goals of various factions starts to emerge the most notable revelation to me being what the Accelerator Faction is up to There are still questions left but their involvement in the story is starting to unfold The fantasy story arc also continues to evolve as we see Edeard s powers develop and increase with new abilities emerging We also get some answers as to who is behind the attacks outside the city in the provinces.And we get some major re [...]


  • The problem with most stories about Superman is that he s just so damned invincible It almost becomes comic the fact that every two bit hood in Metropolis has access to Kryptonite which is surely not something available by just strolling down the road to the chemist Now I really like Superman, but this flaw springs to mind after having read the second volume of Peter Hamilton s Void trilogy in that so much time is spent with the book s own superman Edeard Edeard is a character from inside the vo [...]


  • Executive Summary I found this to be an improvement over The Dreaming Void, although I think that will heavily depend on how much you like Edeard s story.Audio book I continue to enjoy John Lee s narration, especially for the Commonwealth series.Full ReviewI liked The Dreaming Void, but had some complaints In particular the number of characters and the ridiculous sex scenes This book felt focused and less sexual wish fulfillment As a middle book, I thought it did a nice job setting the stage fo [...]


  • The second book in the Void trilogy started slow for me, but kept on building up from the previous book and the last 100 150 pages where we finally get some revelations regarding the nature of the Void was the pay off for me.The strong points of the book were1.Edeard s story.The weak point of the book was1.Few characters stand out.2.Story gets too much confusing.Let me elaborate on the above points now1.Edeard s story.This book is all about Edeard and his character really develops in this book a [...]


  • I started out by giving this book a 5 star rating, but I ve dropped it to a 4 for reasons I shall explain.One of the best things about Peter F Hamilton s writing has been his ability to write lots of different plots at the same time, and at the very end bring them together in a powerful and entertaining way Its not quite like Max Barry author or Guy Richie director , as his books are much longer than theirs But the idea is still the same, having many characters and plots going at the same time, [...]



  • I am already eagerly reading the third book in the Void Trilogy The Evolutionary Void, and so far, the second book The Temporal Void is by far the best It is the most exciting The stories about Edeard have endeared me to him, and to his world In the first book, one does not have a concept of how his world is related to our own galaxy he seemed to live in a world of fantasy In this second book, the relationship is clearer And now, instead of the stories about Edeard getting in the way of the main [...]


  • The Temporal Void takes up directly where The Dreaming Void left off Where the first book was a huge setup, now the story picks up pace The focus lies now on Edeard and his live in Makathran And due to this worlds low tech society it has the feel of a fantasy novel, with his telekinetic powers as magic The relatively small scenes in the Commonwealth universe act like interludes to advance this storyline and therefore we don t get to see so much character development on that front.This book def [...]


  • This one is tough for me to rate Hamilton has a lot of great ideas in this series, and there are some very good sections The problem for me is that there are sections of the story that I find boring Toward the end, I started to feel like everything was coming together, so I have hopes for the final book in the trilogy Overall, a solid read, but not high on my list of recommendations.Rating 6.5 10


  • I should admit an immediate prejudice I view peter f hamilton books as pure plot, pulpy novels, where the value is in rich characters, interesting events, and good story telling I can like reading these books but i find they don t leave me much to think about, which is what i m looking foryway, i m not really sure what was the reasoning behind the layout of this book roughly half is filled with inigo s dreams, which i simply can not enjoy reading A puerile fantasy where the main character is imm [...]


  • Over the last few years I have become an increasingly keen fan of the works of Peter F Hamilton, and his latest work, The Temporal Void, has done nothing to change that trend Weighing in at some 700 pages it is not for those with little time to read, especially as it is book two of his new Void trilogy which began with The Dreaming Void in 2007, which itself is a sequel to his previous Commonwealth duo of books Pandora s Star Judas Unchained released in 2004 2005 Hamilton does his usual job of w [...]


  • While this is the second book of the Void trilogy, it is the fourth book to be set in the Commonwealth Universe I am surprised by liking this one as much or as my favorite of the series, Pandora s Star My first love will always be fantasy, and I loved the melding of sci fi and fantasy in this story People who are looking for space opera might be disappointed by the amount of time spent in the fantasy setting, Makkathran, but I loved it Hamilton s narratives jump around to different third person [...]


  • I really enjoyed the first two Commonwealth books I read, Pandora s Star and Judas Unchained I was hoping to spend time in that universe with this trilogybut alas, it was not to be The deeper I get into the Void Trilogy this is book 2 the time I m forced to spend on the galaxy sized holodeck called The Void, which is a kind of super virtual reality running a fantasy MMORPG called Inigo s Dream, starring the Edeard The Waterwalker In fact it s not until the very last pages of this book, in a ty [...]


  • A moderate length Peter Hamilton book at only 750 pages, the second Void book is a much better one than the first, though it s a direct continuation and builds on that one I have no idea how volume 3 will deal with all the plot points juggled in the first two, though I expect Mr Hamilton to tie them nicely, but Temporal Void gets to the meat of the trilogy and its epic urban fantasy part is excellent, while the back and forth treachery between immortal but mostly physical post human factions acq [...]


  • The Temporal Void is so clearly the second book in a trilogy that I m glad that I didn t start it until the series was complete Hamilton s work just keeps getting better and better My only complaint about this installment is that it had too much of Edeard s story, but not enough of anyone else s Yes, I know that Edeard was my favorite in The Dreaming Void, but the plotlines following Inigo, Araminta, and Justine were important too Hamilton left these characters hanging way too soon John Lee s na [...]


  • I am reviewing the novel The Temporal Void by Peter F Hamilton which is a very good book which I bought from kindle This book is the 2nd installment in the Void Trilogy In it we see the Void where the Rael live is still expanding There is a good twist at the end involving the group who have made a pilgrimage to the Void Earhead has been promoted first to bodyguard for the President and then because the public opinion starts to sway in his direction, stands for President himself He has to marry s [...]


  • this is the second book in Hamilton s void trilogy and it just starts It took me quite some time to remember who all these characters and their allegiances were But once I was imersed in the story that was no longer a problem Like in the previous book the dreaming void there are alternating chapters inside and outside the void The outside chapters are scifi, the inside chapters lean towards fantasy The emphasis in this volume is on Edeard s rise to power inside the void then on the political sp [...]


  • Not a whole lot to say about this book It is definitely a fun, but long read Peter F Hamilton is a master at balancing out multiple story lines His writing bounces from place to place integrating multiple storylines and weaving characters back and forth.The best compliment I can give a book of this style is to say that each time the scene switches, I want to yell at the author, NO I m not done with this scene yet only to feel the same way after I ve been drawn into another scene This isn t to sa [...]


  • Riveting.spoiler alert.These are notes to myself so that I don t need to reread this book when the conclusion Evolutionary Void comes out August 10th.Wow there are a lot of characters and sub plots in this book I can t complain too much because my favorite storyline got the most coverage in this book Inigo s dreams of the WaterWalker The WaterWalker was busy cleaning the gangs out of Makkathran, and gradually discovering ways he can control and interact with the city itself It s still unclear w [...]


  • A novel in three volumes consisting of The Dreaming Void The Temporal Void The Evolutionary VoidLike Night s Dawn and the Commonwealth Saga before it, the Void Trilogy is not so much a series as one single novel, sprawling over three 1500 page volumes That s why it took two months to read Set over one thousand years after the end of Commonwealth, it reintroduces many of the old familiar characters While it can be read independently, I would highly recommend that you read Commonwealth first The b [...]


  • In The Dreaming Void, we were introduced to the Commonwealth nearly a millennium and a half after the events of Pandora s Star and Judas Unchained A wide, diverse Commonwealth has exploded into numerous factions and polities, including the strange adherents of Living Dream, seeking a way into the physics defying realm in the center of the galaxy Book one was set up, introducing us to the characters, and allowing the reader to slowly start to piece things together Old friends from the original du [...]


  • Mixing Fantasy and Science fiction genre are an mismatch in this novel The novel is too long a lot of side stories without meaning clear meaning Peter s vocabulary is growing for each new novel, which can be a strain for the reader The novel would have been original if it workedPeter F Hamilton is without any doubt a highly skilled writer The novel has good and believable character descriptions and comprehensive universe details Some part of the novel is fast paced, page turner and truly excitin [...]


  • As with the first book of this trilogy, the second one was, for me, an uneven experience Again the PoV is constantly shifting It can be broken down roughly half and half into all the PoVs that make up the big sci fi space opera aspect and the single PoV of Edeard, aka the Waterwalker, which is fantasy esque, especially in the bildungsroman style That is, a farm boy is born with SUPREMELY POWERFUL magic, comes to the big corrupt capital city, and sets about making change despite the protests tha [...]


  • The middle tome of the Void Trilogy is in some ways the best book I ve read by Hamilton there really isn t a dull patch in it and it contains the most emotionally affecting material I ve read by him It is, however, interesting to observe where these passages occur There is a story within a story the dreams about the Waterwalker which has reached 13 installments by the end of this second volume This story really came to dominate my interest and emotional connection to the book and here s the thin [...]


  • This is the second part of the Void trilogy, a space opera set 1500 years in the future There are two distinct story threads to the book the first is a militaristic, galaxy spanning, high tech, action adventure taking place in the Commonwealth In the previous book this civilisation had recently become aware of the titular Void, which as it turns out is an artificial slowly expanding mini Universe at the centre of the galaxy The story follows the actions of the various parties who want to either [...]


  • Ok, so I ve only read his trilogies so far, but I don t believe Peter Hamilton can write stories shorter than 2000 pages Seriously, a trilogy is supposed to be a set of three stories that each wrap up most of their own loose ends at the end of them, but provides some hanging plot hooks that continue on in the next book Peter Hamilton seems to revel in introducing several new characters each book, and then wrapping up their character arches only in the last book Think of normal trilogies like thr [...]


  • The Temporal Void is not as strong as its predecessor, The Dreaming Void, but it s still a strong book, if of a 3.5 than a 4 The book continues the story, but this time the SF side is stronger than the fantasy Both have weaknesses On the SF side, key character Araminta experiments with different romantic sexual relations Unfortunately, it comes across less as exploration of future social models than as an exercise in wish fulfillment It s distracting, but not really intrusive The other complexi [...]


  • Way too long, yet somehow there was no time at all for recaps Therefore There were lots of mentions of characters and situations that I could barely remember from the last book, and the previous series as well Very frustrating Really, frequently frustrating It isn t as though I can go back and re read a 700 page book as a memory refresher If you haven t read the other books there really is no point in reading this It s really a continuation of the story, not at all a book could or should stand o [...]


  • I was so hooked and intrigued by the the first book in the series, The Dreaming Void, and most of this book, The Temporal Void Until the last Edeard chapter Inigo Dream of The Temporal Void Absolutely ridiculous, completely contrived action so much so I had to interrupt my reading to take an hour and be extremely pissed It seems like Hamilton is a freaking 14 year old boy masquerading as a sci fi author I was so suspicious of the development of the Edeard chapters, I was really hoping Hamilton w [...]
