However, this novel has several different strands to it.

The Eden Paradox is packed full of conundrums and complications that his characters have to face. It delves into the reality of a world on the edge and swiftly running out of hope. It is fascinating. There is also a wide cast of characters. Some of them are wonderful, some of them are terrible in behaviour, not writing. They are all detailed and vivid.

Set in both the future and on alien planets means the reader is thrust into a world that is operating on very different rules compared to now. It meant that it took some reading before I could start to get to grips with what was going on. The tension is high and the pacing fast. The Eden Paradox is proof that I made the right choice entering this genre. There is a lot to get to grips with: aliens, space, a futuristic Earth etc. But if you can get your head around it all, you are left with an intense and incredibly gripping tale.
Put it this way: I read this book for a blog tour. I am now planning on reading the rest of the series because it caught my attention so well. May 30, Michael rated it it was amazing.

Kirwan carves out a tale of diabolical intent and our desperate struggle against both ourselves and an implacable, superior enemy. His characters are instantly involving.

Overall Mr. Kirwan made excellent use of mixing dialog with exposition, although there were a few places where I felt he should have spent more time showing the reader some of the action leading to the present situation instead of having a character reminisce about the past. At no point did the book feel rushed or ponderous. His ability to merge poetic prose with technical knowledge and amazing descriptions that kept clicking the forward button on my Kindle in every free moment I had. At no point did the science overwhelm the story and the book is a smooth read from start to finish.
Kirwan's plot line is complex, but he uses his superior writing talent to tie all the lines together to a satisfying, and chilling conclusion that left me wishing I had already bought the sequel. Truly, if you don't read this book you're missing out. I highly recommend The Eden Paradox to any lover of science fiction and good, edge of your seat stories.
Sep 13, Gabriel Reyes rated it it was amazing Shelves: science-fiction. I really enjoyed this book. It took me awhile to get interested but once action took place I couln't find time enough to throw my self into it. Good characters, nice plot even with some elements taken from other big SiFi stories.
A great sci-fi book for the first in a series.

The introduction of characters is smooth, their development is complex. The action is evenly paced so you won't get bored with long descriptive chapters or full action non-sense. He's a good writer but he has done better. Sep 23, Emma Williams rated it it was amazing.
Great story. Well told. Well developed characters.
Really fast paced and interesting. Already started the next one. Good premise, but just a little lengthy. This book isn't bad and I am thinking that because it's the first book of a series it was lengthy.
The Eden Paradox
I am assuming the author did this to set you for the next books in the series. I liked most of the characters, but got stuck on the many different factions and political parties that all play a role in the demise of earth. I liked the book, but not enough to read the rest of the series. Rambling, confusing. A quite good idea became a story with no clear plot and too many simultaneous scenarios. I read the hype and am aware that most readers thought it good to great but I could not face the sequels.
Interesting premise and ends with a decent future story but for some reason I really struggled to get through this. Lots of people will enjoy this book but for me I needed a little more. Clever Clever storyline, but difficult to read at times.
