If you're after light reading, look elsewhere. Pandora Star is the beginning of a two part huge sprawling Space Opera with multiple plot lines and vast amount of characters.

Pandora Star begins a very deep and interesting story set in Humanity's far future. This book is mostly set up, but toward the end really takes off.

The universe of Pandora Star is very well realized, I really enjoyed some of the concepts in the technology used in earth. The concepts of Rejuvination, relife, organic technology, genetic engineering were all really intriguing.

The only thing that stops me giving this book a higher rating is the amount of smut. All the female characters seemed to be highly promiscuous and rampantly bisexual. I'm not sure if this was deliberate on the part of the author in trying to portray a futuristic attitude, but the graphic descriptions of sex just put me off
