Description

Know your enemy - or be defeated.

AD 2204
An alien shipwreck is discovered on a planet at the very limits of human expansion - so Security Director Feriton Kayne selects a team to investigate. The ship’s sinister cargo not only raises bewildering questions but could also foreshadow humanity’s extinction. It will be up to the team to bring back answers, and the consequences of this voyage will change everything.

Back on Earth, we can now make deserts bloom and extend lifespans indefinitely, so humanity seems invulnerable. We therefore welcomed the Olyix to Earth when they contacted us. They needed fuel for their pilgrimage across the galaxy - and in exchange they helped us advance our technology. But were the Olyix a blessing or a curse?

AD 50,000
Many light-years from Earth, Dellian and his clan of genetically engineered soldiers are raised with one goal. They must confront and destroy their ancient adversary. The enemy caused mankind to flee across the galaxy, and they hunt us still. If they aren’t stopped, we will be wiped out - and we’re running out of time.

Salvation is the first title in a stunning science fiction trilogy, The Salvation Sequence, by Peter F. Hamilton.

Awful narrator

A space opera masterpiece is destroyed by the narrator's very mediocre performance. His annoying tone is always high, never modulated, always the same intonation. Very very annoying.

It's OK. I usually Love Hamilton though

Canterbury Tales style stories within stories told around a table of pilgrims, also used in the Hyperion books.Great literary device. These stories however are only quite interesting.

For some reason Hamilton has made all his characters incredibly ethnically diverse which has proved a real challenge to the usually fantastic John Lee. I struggled to keep track of who was who while this nuance added nothing to the plot.

The far future stuff is pretty uninspired. Lord of The Flies meets Brave New World meets Enders Game while rehashing the animal servants from The Void. The enemy is very disappointing.

usually lee+hamilton works, not this time

Lee and Hamilton usually make a good combo - the shining example being audibooks from the commonwealth saga. This time however they don't pull it off. The characters and their surrounding stories are quite flat with their motivations and background being very thinly explored. Lee's narration gets confusing with the changes in perspective depending on the character and so does the story in some parts.
The entire story feels like it suffers from an incomplete worldbuilding and as a result of that Hamiltons usually very descriptive sceneries and plots including their narration fall short of the standards the other books set.
If youre looking for the usual Hamilton tropes from portals, future tech buzzwords, the phrase "jesus wept" used in the highest quantity of any Hamilton book yet and fantastical technology you will find them here - but be prepared for disappointment when comparing this to the other works of Hamilton.

I couldn't follow the narrator/writer.

Might be better to pick up the hardcopy book. I found this quite monotonous. DNF

Messy and hard to follow

The beginning is very hard to follow on Audiobook. It picks up in the middle and you'll want to hear more in the end.

20 hours of only slightly interesting snippets

I am a Huge Peter F. Hamilton, but I feel this book stretched too much what is essentially an introduction to the story.

It tells only motheratly interesting fragments of many characters and different events, trying to create a big mistery, but ends up making an entire book filled with unimportant stuff.

Slow dialogues building to an impressive crescendo

Parallel stories in vastly different timelines. The far future story considerably less interesting than the nearer. Dialogue- and monologue-based story, beautifully built. The main

Nice introduction but lacking on its own.

This is a first book in upcoming series and as an introduction it got me interested. Unfortunately it didn't stand on its own in my opinion.
It felt like a collection of short stories with little connection to each other. The short stories being background histories of the characters in the main? plot. The main plot get me very interested but it was only a fraction of the book.

Not one of Hamilton's best (yet), bad narrator

The story is a little long-winded, but entertaining enough not to get boring. The entire novel is just a large scale set-up for what's to come, combined out of multiple story lines of quite a few characters. It'll be interesting how this plays all out in the sequel, and this will determine if consuming this novel is worth it.
One big disadvantage of this novel is the narrator, as with most of the recent PFH novels. John Lee is just horrible. He reads way too fast and doesn't allow for breaks, so many passages, especially dialogue, seems quite rushed and he also doesn't do a good job in distinguishing between characters by different intonation, etc. It's very hard to follow who's speaking sometimes, and what annoys me the most is knowing that listening could be a lot more entertaining with a better narrator.

Confusing Storyline

Maybe as a paper-book this story is good, but it's too confusing as an audiobook and keeps meandering along without managing to make me care about characters and storyline. Because there are so many characters and timelines interwoven I was just lost halfway through even though the excellent narrator does his best to breathe life into the characters.

P. F. H, Interesting and imaginative as always.

Good story, building up to something bigger coming in the following books. Great performance by John Lee, as usual.

Quite funny

I've read most books/cycles from Hamilton and this is no real surprise - which is not particularly bad: In fact it's real fun to read.
Yet again in a not-so-far future, featuring Hamilton's sometimes lengthy style of storrytelling - humanity is in danger of being eradicated by an alien species. This is a common theme, but the setting is nicely done and this first book uses a lot of retrospective little sub-stories that add to a greater picture. It feeös a lot like the void trilogy, where we have two seemingly separate storylines, later converging into a grand finale, but on a smaller scale.
I'm really looking forward to the next two volumes!

Langsamer Start aber Geniales Buch

Der Anfang war langsam und wenig begeisternd aber umsoweiter es fortschreitet umso spannender wird es. Bis es in einem Crescendo mit einem genialem Cliffhanger endet.

Mieser Sprecher

Extrem schlechter Sprecher. Habe es keine 10 Minuten ertragen.

Extremely bad narrator. Couldn't bear to listen to him for more than 10 minutes.
