Revelation Space: Book #1
Narrated by John Lee / 22 hours 12 minutes
“A grand epic space opera. For the first hundred pages of this book I wasn’t sold. It developed slowly and was slightly difficult to follow because of the relativistic time differences between the characters and unfolding sub-plots. But I am glad that I held out and kept reading. Right after page 100 the book started to get more and more interesting. Truly alien cultures begin to emerge and as the sub-plots come together the book gets more and more exciting. I applaud Reynolds for his super creative invention of ancient alien civilizations and a history of the galaxy explaining why we don’t encounter more civilization like our own. The scale of this book way truly immense and included not only great aliens, for instance an intelligent ocean that can absorb your thoughts and connect you with the thoughts of other aliens, but also great action, philosophical implications, and many unexpected twist that I did not have seen coming. I’m looking forward to reading more of his novels and finding out if he always writes on such a grand scale. Recommended for all fans of space opera.”Jean-Paul, Space Cowboy Books
Nine hundred thousand years ago, something annihilated the Amarantin civilization just as it was on the verge of discovering space flight. Now one scientist, Dan Sylveste, will stop at nothing to solve the Amarantin riddle before ancient history repeats itself. With no other resources at his disposal, Sylveste forges a dangerous alliance with the cyborg crew of the starship Nostalgia for Infinity. But as he closes in on the secret, a killer closes in on him because the Amarantin were destroyed for a reason. And if that reason is uncovered, the universe—and reality itself—could be irrevocably altered.
