The many hours of reading pleasure from this space opera on a grand scale almost made it a five-star wonder for me. The far-future humans in this tale desperately pull out all the stops and put aside a revolutionary conflict between an underclass and their self-serving rulers in order to deal with an impending apocalypse at the hands of an insidious alien species, the Fallers. Lots of fascinating personalities come into play with all the sub-plots, starting with a forest warden, Florian, who get [...]

5-Stars for the colossal, exciting, and very poignant final ending of the Commonwealth Saga. Over so many years, we have loved these characters, brought them into our families, lived with them, strived and hurt and were heroic with them. Now they are "grown children" and Peter's parenting of them is over. I know this loss must be deeply sad, as are all good parents when their children leave the nest. We do feel for you, Peter!The Commonwealth Universe is an extraordinary creation, so carefully p [...]

What a book! The Commonwealth chronicle begun with The Abyss Beyond Dreams concludes and it is magnificent. There is so much going on here, so many lives, I'll be thinking it over for a long time. Tempted now to re-re-read Pandora's Star Peter F Hamilton is the Master.

disappointing; the first PFH novel that felt like a drag to read and finish and I did it more from a "dot the i's and cross the t's" perspective than anything else and if it were from almost any other I would have abandoned it without qualms; even the overlong Great North Road had enough goodies to make me get over the long boring police procedural part, while Mispent Youth was intriguing enough too to keep me interested despite being a soap opera disguised as sf, but this is repetition after re [...]

Night Without Stars is Peter F Hamilton’s conclusion to his Chronicle of the Fallers duology, itself effectively a conclusion – at least for the moment – of his Commonwealth Universe. Following on from The Abyss Beyond Dreams (Mark C’s review, MarkY’s review), Night Without Stars has a lot to do in its page count to effectively tie up the story, and it makes this task even greater by essentially resetting the society and technology on Bienvenido following its expulsion from the Void. I [...]

Very good book. I thought this duology was lacking compared to the ten other books I've read by him. Still good, still entertaining, just lite.

Worth reading.Lots of good points. Faced paced, action, etc. Good characters and exciting story. How much actual science fiction is debatable. Concludes the chronicle of the fallers series. Can be classed as good fun, without stretching the brain too much. Worth reading.

This was everything that I'd hoped it would be, an epic and satisfying conclusion to this pair of books set in Peter F Hamilton's truly awesome Commonwealth universe. I selected it as my own personal "Book Of The Year" for 2016.Set a number of years after the events of The Abyss Beyond Dreams, the story starts of rapidly and remains fast-moving with lots of action. There's a cool battle at the beginning where an old foe from the past (which Commonwealth universe readers will instantly recognize) [...]

A Night Without Stars is the disappointing sequel to The Abyss Beyond Dreans. Whereas the earlier volume was characterized by some intriguing ideas and was populated by some complicated characters the sequel abandons both plot and lazy writing. Here is what I mean by lazy writing: 1. The author doesn’t take time with his sentences. Here is an example: “They were halfway across the lake to the Vatni village when the baby woke up and started crying– really bawling. The noise was incredible. [...]

Somewhat inconsistent but enjoyable entry in Commonwealth sagaA strong ending (with cameo appearances by some of the most famous and beloved figures in Hamilton's recent oeuvre) rescues this entry in the Commonwealth saga from relative obscurity.A Night Without Stars is the second (and final) entry in a duopoly that began with The Abyss Beyond Dreams. These are nominally two more books set in the same Commonwealth universe of some of Hamilton's best work (Judas Unchained & Pandora's Star) bu [...]

Picking up a few hundred years after the events in 'The Abyss Beyond Dreams', PFH tries to fix up whatever flaws were in its prequel. Did he manage to do it? Only partially.Same recipe apllies yet again. 19th century society struggling to cope with the Void (see 'Void Trilogy'). Some Commonwealthers stick their noses here and there, apparently with their own agenda.Compared to the prequel I had the impression that this time the 'voiders' were a little bit better written. The side action no longe [...]

Part two of the Chronicle of the Fallers series that began with The Abyss Beyond Dreams. If there is someone that can keep a series going without the quality decreasing over time, it is Peter F. Hamilton.I believe that this is the twelfth book I've ready from this author. My average rating has been 4*. I received an ARC of this book from Netgalley. Yes, I'm a fanboy, but this rating was earned and not given.The story continues shortly after the end of the previous book in the series and assumes [...]

This is the book that ends the Commonwealth universe series. To be honest, I liked the previous trilogies better.This one had too much Marvel-like characters for my taste and too many cliches. Not to mention that society I love the Commonwealth universe with its wonders and high technology and the diversity of aliens. If it wasn't for the (cheesy, but so lovely) ending, it would have been the first PFH disappointment. But the ending worth the struggle.Overall, it was an enjoyable reading; just d [...]

Another great story from a master story teller. Ejected from the void the issue becomes defending themselves from the Fallers who can create any type of person or animal they "eggsume".Super sophisticated science fiction and evil at the highest level merge to create an epic story

Thanks to NetGalley for the ARC.A Night Without Stars takes us back into the Commonwealth/Void universe. As the story takes place on Bienvenido and since I have only read the Commonwealth trilogy and not the Void Trilogy, I missed out on much of the context. While reading the Void Trilogy was clearly not a requirement, there was a lot of emphasis on the events of that story and plenty of references that I did not get.SettingThe story takes place on Bienvenido, a planet that was formerly in the V [...]

Space Opera, perhaps conclusion to the Commonwealth saga?Paulo Myo comes across the galactic gulf to save Bienvenido from the coming Faller apocalypse. If that did not make any sense, you may have to read the previous book The Abyss Beyond Dreams, or for that matter, the excellent Void series (begins with The Dreaming Void). Paula comes in as a reborn child on a fast re-growth, and handed off to a unwitting local, Froilan, who must keep her safe while she grows to adulthood and recovers her memo [...]

An entertaining, breakneck adventure in a modern boy's own cracking good romp that takes no prisoners.Here is what I loved about his earlier works, that I found lost in the introspective rambling first Void trilogy. Which was very good and interesting, but here it is surpassed by the flamboyant, exuberant action of this new work in the series.And what fabulous action indeed. We have a medly of believable characters, diverse in so many ways (so, so, so many ways), desperately chasing their own co [...]

Crudding Uracus! It's the Peter F Hamilton greatest hits novel. All the usual elements are there: breathless plot-driven narrative, characters primarily differentiated by their clothes, and the obligatory car/train/ship/blimp/tuk-tuk chase. And that's the problem. Normally I can tolerate (nay enjoy) this confection - since Hamilton brings in lots of new ideas. And that's the problem with this novel, there are no new ideas. As a result, I ran out of puff half way through. Like having enough of a [...]

In this book Peter F. Hamilton brings to a close the story begun in The Abyss Beyond Dreams. It's now some 250 years after the clone of Nigel Sheldon broke down The Void, an area where time and physics no longer acted normally. This ejected the planet of Bienvenido with its population of humans who had been stranded and isolated from their home planets while within the Void. Now, millions of light years away from the nearest planetary system, they feel no less isolated. And there are two pressur [...]

Night Without Stars continues on from the previous books and for most of the book jumps the story on by another 242 years which shows the development of the planet Bienvenidos and it's ongoing battle with the Fallers! :D We are introduced to the characters of Florian aka Forest Warden, Stonal who runs the equivalent of the Secret Police Chaing who doesn't want to be an Eliter and The Warrior Angel who we have met before and the return of Laura Brandt and a host of new and returning characters! : [...]

Wow what a great book!!!After suffering the first book this one makes up for it so much that I have to go back to my review of the first one, change it and recommend the suffering because at the end it will be so worth it if they read this great conclusion.Two and a half days with all most no sleep, Thanks a lot Mr. Hamilton!

I have a fever, and the only prescription is More Commenwealth. While this review is officially about A Night Without Starts, I'm writing it more to help people who are interested in reading Peter F. Hamilton but aren't sure where to start. This is my opinion; I'm sure there are bigger fans of his work than I am who differ in their opinion.Ok, so I started with The Abyss Beyond Dreams. Big mistake - only after a few pages did I do my due diligince and realize I started in the middle of a much bi [...]
