Pandora's Star - Peter F. Hamilton, John      Lee

It's still kinda boring, but I'm now curious to see what the starship will discover at the Dyson sphere stars.

 

I did have a bit of an issue with a scene that basically amounts to statutory rape. A 50+ rejuvenated woman (I can't remember how many rejuvenations she's had) has sex with a 17-year-old boy who's actually undergoing a rite of passage (so borderline adult but not actually considered an adult). He thinks she's just a couple years older than him because that's what she looks like and she doesn't correct him. I'm thinking that's not cool and it counts as statutory rape, but I'd be curious to know how others see the situation.
