Honestly, this is a 3.5 and the only reason it's not a 5 is that Mr Hamilton takes a good 700+ pages for a story that really should only be around 450-500 pages.

The stories within stories is expertly woven together. Mr Hamilton successfully weaves 5 stories that, at first, don't seem to be connected and yet you know that in the next book they will all come together brilliantly. In fact, I feel like I'm watching a dance where we can all see the setup, we have an idea how it will come together in the end and yet we still watch. We watch because we are watching master dancers at their craft and getting there is all the fun. This is much the same in "Pandora's Star".

A solid sci fi book that does transcend the genre.
