Inhaltsangabe

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.

anstrengender Sprecher. ständiges Hoch und Runter

kann der Geschichte gar nicht folgen, weil der Sprecher so übertreibt und nervig moduliert. schade.

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.

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.
