    One thought on “The Reality Dysfunction 1: Emergence”

    1. I’ve read, or attempted to, my share of stupid books over the years, but I don’t think I’ve ever picked up a book this damn stupid in my entire life! I’m astounded, because The Reality Dysfunction has a great 4.24 rating on , one of the highest ratings I’ve ever seen. Yet, it’s unbelievably stupid. I don’t see how anyone could possibly read past the first three chapters and not laugh their asses off at the sheer idiocy of the author. Cause that’s how far I got before giving up. A [...]

    2. I actually rate this book as a 3 ½ stars. I am a big fan of Hamilton’s. But I must admit that starting his books can be tedious. They read like a technical manual to start off with. Lots of 7000 kilometers this, and red dwarf that… This book was no different. It was like reading a Carl Sagan Cosmos transcript. (Which is cool and all but I would rather watch it on discovery). I didn’t even know what the plot was until about 130 pages into the book.After all the explaining and details were [...]

    3. Anläßlich der Neuveröffentlichung des Armageddon-Zyklus durch Piper, konnte ich mir doch nicht verkneifen, den Roman nochmals zu lesen (wenn auch nur oberflächlich) um herauszufinden, ob meine Einschätzung vor 17 Jahren bei der deutschen Erstveröffentlichung bei Bastei-Lübbe, noch etwas hinzuzufügen ist bzw. ob ich meine damalige Einschätzung revidieren muss.Nein, ich denke, der Zyklus und dieser Auftaktband ist eine zeitlose Darstellung des Zustandes der SF-Space Opera am Ende des 20. [...]

    4. "Mr. Hamilton, a comma is not a semicolon nor an em-dash."(pullquote from the review below, serving as a title for this review)An awful book that I dreaded more and more as I read it all those years ago.How bad was this experience? I read it in 1997, and subsequently never read any other Peter F. Hamilton until December 2010. (Coincidentally, the recent story I read was in the anthology entitled The Good Stuff edited by Gardner Dozois.)I hated the Reality Dysfunction, laboring through it simply [...]

    5. Every once in a while I love to sink my teeth into something epic - metaphorically speaking of course. Although I did bite Margaret Atwood’s “Bodily Harm” and toss it across the room one day - but that is another tale and I have never bitten another book since. Of course I have never read another Margaret Atwood book since either - shudder . . .Anyway, this book by Peter F. Hamilton, was exactly what I was looking for in a huge, huge, huge epic galactic science fiction novel - beginning. A [...]

    6. I knew going into this that this was not as much a three book series (each book was actually split into two for North American release), but more of a 3000 page story.I also knew from some reviews that the first 130 pages were a major slogfest, and that once you were able to make it through there, it was clear sailing as far as the story went. That is very true, and I'm so glad that many people wrote that, otherwise there is no way I would have made it past 20 pages.So, I did make it to about pa [...]

    7. The first Peter F Hamilton book I listened to was Fallen Dragon. A very good introduction to his way of storytelling.I loved his Commonwealth Saga. To this day Pandora's Star and Judas Unchained are still my favourite space operas, the exploration of new and interesting ideas on an epic scale through the eyes of multiple protagonists, unputdownable.The first part of the The Reality Dysfunction, Emergence, has finally become available as an audiobook. It reminds me a lot of the Commonwealth Saga. [...]

    8. This is typical PFH with a cast of thousands approach, but we definitely focus on a central few - most notably (view spoiler)[the Psychic sexaholic space-captain (hide spoiler)] Josh Calvert. It's obviously only half of a book really, but it was certainly enjoyable. A strange mix of hyper technological hard sci-fi foiled with a couple of very non-technological planets - the frontier colonial Lalonde and the pastoral Norfolk.I was a little surprised, but not particularly bothered by, the abundanc [...]

    9. Kvůli této knize zakládám speciální kolonku (shelve) "nedocteno". Nepamatuji si, kdy jsem naposled nedočetl knihu. Vždycky se o to snažím a je mi líto, když se nedostanu na konec. Dočetl jsem tak všechno možné i nemožné. Tohle ale fakt nešlo. Je to ukázka toho sci-fi (space opery), které si hraje s miliony nových termínů a názvů, ale naprosto neúčelně a zmateně Chci děj a čtení, ne vytváření seznamu pojmů :/A hodnocení? Chtěl jsem napsat něco dlouhého, al [...]

    10. Přečteno 25%. Budu parafrázovat Kinga: Na světě je až moc dobrých knih na to, ztrácet čas s těmi špatnými. Když opomenu drobnosti, jakože si autor občas protiřečil a používal složitá slova hlavně pro efekt, i když to někdy ani nedávalo smysl, hlavní důvod, proč se mi kniha nelíbila je ten, že mi prostě nesedl styl vyprávění. Příliš chaotický mišmaš, příliš mnoho postav. Ať jsem se snažil sebevíc, každou chvíli jsem se v tom ztrácel. Nakonec mě to [...]

    11. Not the easiest thing I've read. Hamilton is introducing people, planets, starships and technology almost every other page and sometimes he takes quite a bit to go back to them. There were several occasions where I was trying to remember what a name referred to. On the other hand, the story so far is compelling and he's build quite a remarkable world to set it in. I've already started on the second part Expansion which promises to pick up the pace.

    12. Velice zajímavý rozjezd k dalším pokračováním a já rovnou načínám druhou knihu. Drobný problém mám s množstvím postav a lokací, ne úplně se v tom orientuju :)

    14. A space opera with enough going for it that I'll keep reading despite its issues. The story is an intriguing juxtaposition of religious concepts and a zombie analogue spreading along the usual vectors, and the scenes of satanists hiding among an isolated, new settlement in the jungle were truly terrifying. As is usual with the genre, the dialogue was far more interesting than the extensive descriptive passages, and the amount of time spent watching the beautiful young people flirt and have sex w [...]

    15. Although this is only the first half of TRD, I need a break before tackling the second half, as I am currently wading my way through another Peter F. Hamilton tome (Great North Road).Overall, this was a great intro to PFH--a lot of mind-stretching ideas and concepts as well as some surprising interjections of faith/Christian-related elements. At least in this book, Hamilton has yet to be bogged down with his obsession with infinitesimal detail that is apparent in his later work. Yes, there is a [...]

    16. My white whale is slain, read half the book in 2010 and stopped because it depressed me. Finished in 2017.Cool ideas, but slow pacing and instantly forgettable characters make for a difficult read. It made enough of an impression that for years every time I finished a book I thought maybe I should finish Emergence, well now I have, though I don't know if or when I'll read Expansion.

    17. I decided to revisit this series that I first read about fifteen years ago because sometimes you're just in the mood for a wide-screen space opera epic, and I was curious if this would still hold up.It does, solid entertainment, and just what I needed to take my mind off the real world for a while.

    18. I have recently retread this book, simply because I kept comparing other science fiction to it. I think I enjoyed it more second time round than I did the first time. Peter Hamilton has constructed a universe that hangs together, that you an believe in, even if every detail may not be entirely scientifically plausible.

    19. Die Review zu Peter F. Hamilton's Armageddon-Zyklus stellt den Rezensenten vor einige Probleme. Nicht nur der Umfang von ca. 5800 Seiten, sondern auch die über 200 handelnden Personen der Story sprengen jeden üblichen Rahmen innerhalb der SF. Der Versuch, jeden Band einzeln zu rezensieren, wird durch den Umstand einer durchgehende Story zunichte gemacht. Deshalb darf und kann nur die gesamte Geschichte betrachtet werden, unabhängig von den inhaltlichen und stilistischen Höhen und Tiefen der [...]

    20. Caveat: I am writing this in 2/2001, the details may have faded a bit. Not an easy story to summarize. It is tied together by Joshua Calvert, a young ladies' man who becomes a starship captain (restoring his father's damaged vessel, the Lady Macbeth) after gathering enough artifacts from the Ruin Ring - through uncanny luck as well as skill and intelligence - to pay for necessary repairs, added features, and a crew. The Ruin Ring is the last remnants of a mysterious civilization, which is monito [...]

    21. I'm about halfway through this massive novel and it has ceased to become engaging; I'm resisting the urge to simply jump to the end. Ordinarily I enjoy lengthy novels, but this one is clearly in need of serious trimming: after about 200 pages, it becomes clear that the vast majority of the prose is superfluous dressing on a plot which doesn't make much sense to start with. The setting is presented well enough: the universe is vast, the technology is creative, and the characters are believable, i [...]

    22. Ich habe es schon oft betont und auch jetzt findet es wieder Erwähnung: Seitdem ich zur Jahrtausendwende den Hyperion/Endymion Zyklus von Dan Simmons las, bin ich ein glühender Fan des "Space Opera" Formats - wenn auch meist nur um festzustellen, das bisher keine gelesene Reihe jenem Zyklus auch nur annähernd das Wasser reichen kann, wenn es um Ideenreichtum,Worldbuilding, Plot, Charaktere, Mystik und Atmosphäre und was auch immer geht. Alastair Reynold´s Revelation Space Zyklus hielt zumin [...]

    23. I wonder if any of my friends have read this? Am soliciting opinions. I do like it and I'm almost finished with the fourth out of six - 500 to 600 page volumns that make up this story arc. The genre is a bit of a mash-up, with hard core Science-Fiction a core element, however, woven into that are other genre components including Alternate Realities, Horror, Fantasy, CyberPunk, Sentient Environments, Military, and so on. This is the first time in a very long time where I have had to say to my sel [...]

    24. I have recently retread this book, simply because I kept comparing other science fiction to it. I think I enjoyed it more second time round than I did the first time. Peter Hamilton has constructed a universe that hangs together, that you an believe in, even if every detail may not be entirely scientifically plausible. The book is well written, he explains his concepts well and has constructed a universe that makes sense. There is a wide range of characters that Hamilton has brought convincingly [...]

    25. I started off annoyed at the author for two reasons. 1) He seems to go out of his way to add more characters, more details, and more everything, just to frustrate me. 2) His target audience is apparently the 15-year-old male who thinks that yes, of course the future consists of nothing but nubile young women who can't WAIT to have no-strings relations with everyone they meet.So yes, I was annoyed but once I got over that, I started to notice that this book actually introduces several cool new id [...]

    26. I had no idea what to think going into this series. I went into Barnes and Noble and asked one of the workers to find me something "epic" to read. That was the only criteria I gave him. So he took me over and pointed me in Peter F. Hamilton's direction and I was off to the races. I have no idea how long it took me to read this book, or the next two that come after it, but it wasn't long enough even though all three book comprise about 3,000 pages in all, at least the American Mass Paperback vers [...]

    27. This is the first book in a BIG space opera epic. In fact, it's only the first half of the first book. For its U.S. publication, the publisher decided to split the original 1,200 page novel into two parts.Hamilton has created a detailed universe and some winning characters. But this is such a big story that it takes 400 pages or so for us to even begin to see how the characters and events - especially the opening sequence - might begin to fit together.But if you want to lose yourself in other wo [...]

    28. Boring. That pretty much sums up this book for me. I just could not get into it. I sort of liked one character, but as I read further I didn't care about him anymore. And that means I didn't care about any character in this book. That would naturally make it hard to keep reading, so its no surprise that I read about 150 pages, and then skipped through the rest of the book. I wanted to find out (view spoiler)[what info the Laymil computer chip held, and why they were destroyed or committed suicid [...]

    29. Reread, finally found the sequel (actually part 2 of 6) and needed to refresh my memory. Hamilton writes so many characters and so much detail that it is hard to pick up the storyline after any length of time away. (First post) Don't you just love the feeling when a book reaches out and grabs youyou can't put it down and you don't want to finish it too quickly. That is this book. Some really interesting scifi ideas such as biological engineering in many areas, how planet colonization might reall [...]

    30. Good new-fashioned space opera stuff. It's got freaky tech, massive space ships, twisty heroes and turny plots. The book started a bit slow and it was only as I was one third way through (it's one tousand plus pages) that I realised it's part one of three. What is is with sci-fi and series. Puts the opera back in space-opera that's for sure.But it's the bad-guys who are the star of the show. I won't go into it too much because like you I think spoilers suck-ass. Take it from me though the bad-gu [...]
