From Publishers Weekly
In the tradition of grand-scale SF sagas that explore the potential of human evolution, this densely plotted and intensely thought-provoking opener for Hamilton's Void trilogy takes place roughly 1,000 years after the events of 2006's Judas Unchained. Humankind in the 34th century has effectively conquered mortality, but many humans are still searching for existential transcendence, and a growing number believe the answer can be found inside the Void at the galactic center. Once thought to be an enormous black hole, the Void, which supposedly contains an entire micro-universe inside an impenetrable event horizon, slowly devours stars to sustain itself. If left unchecked, it will eventually consume the entire galaxy. When the technologically augmented telepath Inigo begins experiencing revelatory dreams, his shared visions ignite a mass pilgrimage to the Void, which some believe will trigger the apocalypse. Readers can expect big ideas and big story lines as well as big cliffhangers at the novel's conclusion. (Apr.)

5.0 The Dreaming Void
The last time I read a book by Peter F. Hamilton was around mid-April 2014, as I write it is the 2nd of April 2015, almost a year in between. The book was The Naked God, PFH does not waste any time faffing about before hooking you with his action packed opener and awesome world building. The Dreamin...

2.0 The Dreaming Void
That's it. I'm done with trying to make it through this book. Two tries and I'm still only halfway through and I don't care at all about any of the characters. Maybe I've changed as a reader, maybe it is that it is audiobook and I don't have the patience to wait for all of the threads to come togeth...

2.0 THE DREAMING VOID [THE VOID TRILOGY, BOOK 1] BY PETER F. HAMILTON
I'm pretty sure there was a story there somewhere, but it was mostly obscured by an unedited regurgitation of words.
