I have seen various works by Peter F. Hamilton floating around but have never actually read any of his works. When I saw Pandora’s Star at a local Goodwill, I figured for the small price $2.50 I could take a chance and see if he is any good or not. His wikipedia page says he writes mostly Space Operas and has sold over 2 million copies of his various works world wide, this must mean he is doing something right.
