I loved his commonwealth series, and I love John Lee's narration. This book is a different universe, but still it was quite good. Hamilton and Lee knock it out of the park yet again.
There is one thing about Peter F Hamilton and John Lee though that bugs me and makes me have to pay more attention to the words and less to my imagination, and that is the shifts between scenes. It can be hard to realize when the narration has gone to another character, or even another time. Lee can be talking for a minute before I realize we are in a different scene. It may be the editor, or the book, or the narrator, but it is a definite issue that plagues most of the books Hamilton and Lee do.
Other than that, the technology is easily imagined, along with great characters and detailed scenery.

I looked into this simply because I have enjoyed Hamilton's work immensely in the past. I recently read the Nights Dawn trilogy, and while it was interesting, it left me feeling a bit let down compared to his other work.
However, this book was simply fantastic. It's like an evil mirror world of his Commonwealth Universe, and as a result has a certain allure to it that I was not expecting. I would highly recommend this to any fan of science fiction.
