#1: The Abyss Beyond Dreams (Peter F. Hamilton)

First book of 2015!

The entire last third of this book was a series of surprises. This book is excellent at setting up one thing and then abruptly shifting to another, either in a brute-force way or through a change in viewpoint and information. While I have some quibbles, it was a very enjoyable ride, and the end has left me kind of gob-smacked. At the end of the last chapter, I was like, “Well, what happens now? What CAN happen now?” At the end of the prologue it was more “How in the world will that work?”

I’m definitely looking forward to Night Without Stars…
