    Description

    From New York Times best-selling author Peter F. Hamilton comes his first audio original, A Hole in the Sky, Book 1 in the Arkship Trilogy.

    Sixteen-year old Hazel lives in the Daedalus, a starship that is flying in search of a new world. The ship has been traveling for 500 years, searching for a world to settle in after having to abandon its last world. Everyone on board Daedalus lives a very simple existence in farming villages. The age of machines supplying their needs was lost during a mutiny 500 years ago. The captain regained control of the ship after a huge struggle. Now, with finite resources, everything in the habitat is Cycled, including humans, who essentially are suicided at 65 so they don't deplete the biosphere's resources.

    Hazel encounters the Cheaters, people who refused to Cycle, who tell her the Daedalus has been damaged and its atmosphere is leaking away. When her brother has a paralyzing accident which condemns him to be Cycled since he can no longer be productive, Hazel runs off with him to join the Cheaters. While with the Cheaters, she discovers that much of what has been told to the people living on Daedalus for the last 500 years is untrue, and soon, Hazel is in a thrilling race to help repair the ship and help the people of the Daedalus.

    What happened?

    I believe I have all of Hamilton's books. My wife and I always hate finishing one of his books because then we have the LONG wait for another one to come out...
    We always pre-order his upcoming books, so we didn't have any reviews to read before buying this one, and we usually don't *need* any reviews when it comes to a Hamilton book, but because we pre-ordered way in advance we didn't know it was another attempt to try to get in on the VERY "YA" market... I'd almost believe this was book written very early in his career, and he dusted it off and updated it a little for publication. There also was no narrator listed in the pre-order information. We've been Audible members pushing 20 years now, with thousands of books between us in our libraries, but we won't be pre-ordering a book from a new Hamilton series again.
    I don't know what happened with *This* book, but it doesn't even seem to have Hamilton's writing style in it. If it wasn't for his name on the cover, I would have never guessed that he was the author.
    Elizabeth Klett just wasn't the right narrator to read this book either. It's like she tried for an over-the-top "British High-Brow" accent... "They fell into the WOAH-Tah". "She didn't rally Cah what he thought". Her HAAh-ah was wet from the WOAH-tah".
    You get my point. As friends and co-workers have said, "it wears on you within a few minutes".
    I really hate bashing an author or a narrator, especially an author like Peter F. Hamilton, but with the plot holes, combined with the "little British towns in space" feel, and "size/distance/time inconsistencies", it all simply got jarring early on... We almost stopped listening to return the book, but it kinda became a matter of "We've read everything else Hamilton has written, and we're GOING to get through this one too!"
    Disappointing. Now this Trilogy is going to leave less writing time for his other AWESOME books series.
    It's just not the usual story standard we expect from Hamilton.

    Ok YA Scifi

    Definitely not in keeping with previous works, this seems aimed at 10-12 year olds

    Not one of Hamiltons best.

    A far cry from The Commonwealth books or Salvation trilogy. Or any of his earlier works for that matter. To me it reads/sounds like a book meant for children. I put it down at Chapter 12.

    So sad

    I absolutely LOVE Peter F. Hamilton's books. However, I could only stomach 5 min of this narrator's voice. Sadly, I'll have to return the audiobook.

    Is there another author named Peter F. Hamilton?

    Surely, this story wasn't written by the same venerable author who brought us The Commonwealth, the Dreaming Void, and other masterful space operas.

    I also see him going the way of every other author here, splitting a good novel into several "Books", in order to maximize profits.

    Regardless, I'm in agreement with other reviewers: aside from feeling like the story is aimed as younger audiences, the PFH writing style is just not there, so don't expect complex character development and back stories.

    The narrator is terrible. Aside from the seemingly forced and fake sounding british accent, just about all of the characters sounded the same. Where is John Lee?

    Either way, not purchasing the other two books when they come out.

    Very Disappointing

    I'm a big fan of Hamilton's books, going all the way back to the Reality Dysfunction, so I was looking forward to his latest series. Sadly, this isn't at all what I expected from Hamilton. It's a generation ship goes bad story which is hardy a new idea. Still there is nothing wrong with a fresh rework of a familiar theme. Sadly, Hamilton doesn't rise to the challenge. The characters are cardboard and the plot, usually Hamilton's strength, is leaden and predictable. My guess is that anyone with a background in SF will have figured out where this is going in the first fifty pages. In fact, perhaps this would have been better marketed as a YA book, to readers new to SF. The tone, typified by Hamilton's use of juvenile euphemisms for swear words, suggests YA too. Not recommended.

    Yes, a departure for PFH, but still awemazing!!

    I was absolutely looking forward to this audiobook from the moment I heard it was coming. I purchased it upon the release date but took a few days to start it. By that time, there were plenty of reviews up that were absolutely blasting it, as a YA, and not up to his usual brilliance. I am a hardcore Hamilton fan, and stripped of any expectations in this day and age, the book was great. The tension built slow at first, but proceeded to cripple me, and had to stop a few times just to catch my breath. For me, I recognize that as my level of engagement hitting its peak. I credit that to a combination of, the worldbuilding, the characters, and the performance melding into pure enjoyment.

    Life aboard the Daedalus from the perspective of Hazel, the main character starts off with a preparation for a teenagers "coming of age" event that is always conciding with what's called a cycle day, which is when adults around the age of 60, or those who are branded "cheaters" are put to rest, or recycled, in order to keep population down and to provide materials to keep the habitat functioning. Or so the inhabitants of this generational ship have come to believe.

    Hazel, Knows that this isn't right, and is compelled to find out what is really happening on this ship. Why have things become this way, why haven't they reached their planet yet, why is the captain withholding all the important details of this centuries, and centuries long voyage?

    Hamiltons genious shows itself in the precarious situation these humans have been living and are about to go through. Secrets of the ship, as well as answers to questions that arise are intricately built, and revealed here and there, but seem to result in more questions.

    Once a part of The ships AI is awakened, the tension is taut and my curiosity and interest were hitting the stratosphere.

    I agree that a story from a younger person's perspective is different for him, but I appreciate PFH'S work as art, however he decides to convey that, I'm a fan, and this did not let me down in any way, and I'm am going to be impatient for the next book. We'll done to the narrator, she was spot on, and hope she continues the story with Peter. Don't let the negative reviews decide for you.

    Good Young Adult Book

    Entertaining young adult book. Good narration. Not like Peter F. Hamilton's other novels though, but I still enjoyed it.

    Definitely YA

    Don’t bother listening if you don’t like YA. That will save you an unnecessary bad review. For what it is it wasn’t too bad but it was definitely not directed at the usual audience. I could definitely see some Hamilton in it, but quite different than i was expecting.

    Another FANTASTIC Hamilton Novel!

    Hamilton has yet to disappoint!!! Although I wish the book was longer, it was a wonderful book and I can’t wait for the next in this series!! He does an amazing job developing the characters and storyline so you feel like you are part of the story! I have read and loved everything he’s ever written and I’m looking forward to enjoying this series as he continues it in the future!!
