Publisher's Summary

From one of the world's best-selling science-fiction writers: the complete and unabridged audio of this tense and thrilling epic, read by Toby Longworth. AD 3580. The Intersolar Commonwealth has spread through the galaxy to over a thousand star systems. It is a culture of rich diversity with a place for everyone. Even death itself has been overcome. But at the centre of the Commonwealth is a massive black hole. This Void is not a natural artefact. Inside there is a strange universe where the laws of physics are very different to those we know. It is slowly consuming the other stars of the galactic core - one day it will devour the entire galaxy. Inigo, a human, has started to dream of a wonderful existence in the Void. He has a following of millions of believers and they now clamour to make a pilgrimage into the Void to live the life they have been shown. Other starfaring species fear their migration will cause the Void to expand again. They are prepared to stop them no matter what the cost. And so the pilgrimage begins....

Listen to this

Do not read this book - listen to Toby Longworth, it is a great performance.
All I wish - is for the rest of the story to be published. Also I would have liked to be informed about the fact that this is part of a series which goes like this:

1. Pandora's Star (2004) Commonwealth Series #1
2. Judas Unchained (2005) Commonwealth Series #2
3. The Dreaming Void (2008) Void Trilogy #1
4. The Temporal Void (to be published in march 2009) Void Trilogy #2

Audible have published book two, Judas Unchained, but not the first. Why in the universe would they do that? I like the whole story - unabridged please.

With sincerety
Audible - are you listening?

Tedious

Never really came to care about any of the (very large ensemble of) characters. Edeard was an engaging character, but even he was predictable. The rest was just ... very long and listening to cardboard-cutout schoolboy-fantasy sex scenes on audiobook was cringe-inducing.

That said, Toby Longworth's narrration was very, very good. There's a huge cast in this book and he manages to come up with a unique, believable voice for each one. He has an amazing repertoire of accents. I'll happily listen to his work again.
