A second chance at eden - Peter F. Hamilton

I liked it overall.

Its a collection of some short stories and a novella. Sci-fi stuff set in the next couple of centuries, mostly centering around a basic idea of an 'affinity bond' between two life forms.

The general sci fi stuff is there, colonizing new places, lot of bio tech, space travel etc, but what I really enjoyed was the way the stories were written. Loved the twist at the end of most of them, and liked the way the story would develop. What I didn't care for much was the very artificial way the stories had to be stitched together with timelines in between stories.. perhaps these are part of a whole series about affinity bonds and eden.

Worth a read!
