    One thought on “Dark Matter

    1. Liviu

      Very entertaining debut; a combination of classic space opera with spiritual literature, as well as of traditional sf tropes with Arabian Nights derived ones, the novel reads very fast and is a page turner end to end; the plot is relatively straightforward though there are several twists and turns and the style is very reminiscent of Golden Age sf. I enjoyed a lot of the inventive touches from Scripture words literally having power by the use of magical/advanced tech "coins" which contain them, [...]

      I enjoyed this book, it's the kind of tale that's hard to come by nowadays. Feels a lot like the old or classic tales from the golden age of scifi, but mixed with a lot of newer science like dark matter, dark energy, etc. There's all the makings of a great scifi adventure - an exciting plot, good character development, lots of action, and *lots* of different kinds of aliens. It also offers some pretty intriguing ideas about our universe and especially why we've never discovered any aliens so far [...]

      This isn't pure or hard sci-fi. There's a decent amount of fantasy woven into the storyline. If that's not your cup of tea, I don't recommend this book. That said, the story is remarkably unique and quite refreshing. It's a real page turner, quickly pulling you in and leaving you constantly guessing as to what might happen next. The scale is truly epic, involving multiple alien civilizations of very different backgrounds battling it out across the galaxy and beyond for ultimate supremacy. In man [...]

      Hard to rate this one. He had interesting concepts, but the writing was often awkward grammatically and the story was a bit contrived (maybe even too nice, if that makes any sense). But should he publish a second book, I'd read it. So three stars it is.

    5. Leo

      Ahmed writes like an eighth grader, and the story is weak, weak, weak. Since I read it on my Kindle, I don't know many pages the printed book has, but if it is 300 pages, the story could be told in 100. The rest of it is useless detail, and poorly related at that. It is the first book in I don't know when that I paid for and could not force myself to read. I made it to the end of chapter 9, by which time I was already starting to skim. At the end of Ch 9, Ahmed gave up on even the pretense of di [...]

      I really wanted this to be good I only made it to Chapter7ish before I wanted to punch myself in the face. The writing was so juvenile I felt like I was reading a middle school homework assignment. No bueno.

    7. Tom McDonald

      Some imaginative itemsThe story began pretty good, but fell down towards the end. Turned into a typical "understand Muslims" trope. There was some good attempts in the beginning of the story to explain some science but it felt as though the author lost his focus towards the end of the story, then the story was used to promote understanding between Muslims and the western world.

      This started off as an intriguing tale, stayed strong and consistent through the middle, then drastically diverged in style near the end. Instead of remaining consistent with the style through the rest of the book where it trades off on points of view of the main characters, it only follows one of two lines of development and feels very rushed like the author just wanted to be done with the story.Overall I liked the story and enjoyed most of it.

    11. F.A.

      Easily one of the best SF books I've ever read. Extremely well rounded, with the right balance of action, adventure, science, mind blowing creativity and interesting characters. The underlying moral of the story is clear and highly applicable to us humans in this day and age. There rarely comes along a book which you continue to think about long after you've finished it. This is one of those books.

    12. Jeff Offutt

      A fascinating idea. And moderately interesting plot. But the writing is high school level and many of the detailed plot devices were child-like in their simplicity. This is the first science fiction book I can remember tossing in the giveaway pile as soon as I finished.

    13. Ken

      Overall it was a good read, but a bit predictable and simple in some areas. The ending reminded me of Dan Brown's Gods and Demons, in that, it was a major let down and it could have gone in a number of different directions.

    14. Melyfong

      This book was written with an easy to read prose that I found quite enjoyable and had a plot that was intricate and all-encompassing. I thoroughly enjoyed this mix of sci-fi and fantasy and would recommend it to anyone who likes either of the two.

    15. Patsy

      This was a mildly interesting science fiction book. It is more of a social commentary on the human race but does pose some unique scenarios.

    16. E. SASSER

      Good ReadThe brook was quite entertaining and a quick read. The other was predictable but kept my interest. I recommend it.
