That Was brilliant It took me three weeks to read this nearly 1000 page monster of a book Normally that would seem like a long time on one book but not here A busy schedule kept me from devoting large chunks of time to it but that was okay I was able to savor it I d never read Hamilton before and now I m a fan It s rare for a book this size to churn along without boring parts but this had very few of those Part mystery action adventure police procedural epic scale space opera and human psychological drama this made for a fantastic experienceIt s a stand alone novel so there is no next book to pick up I will be reading Hamilton though that is certain

Great North Road Read ☆ 109 A century from now thanks to a technology allowing instantaneous travel across light years humanity has solved its energy shortages cleaned up the environment and created far flung colony worlds The keys to this empire belong to the powerful North family composed of successive generations of clones Yet these clones are not identical For one thing genetic errors have crept in with each generation For another the original three clone brothers have gone their separate ways and the branches of the family are now friendly rivals than allies Or maybe not so friendly At least that's what th. imagine a 13 year old boy genius he loves science fiction he loves world building he loves physics and biology and all the sciences he also loves his family and he definitely loves girls he loves binge watching exciting tv shows he s open minded and appreciates diversity overall this is a great kid and I d be happy to know him now imagine if this boy genius were to write a book what would it be full ofit would be full of GEE WHIZ EXCITEMENT of course and spaceships and alien threats and super science and super powered advanced humans who can live centuries and clones and xenobiology and a Jupiter orbital and dangerous futuristic weapons and gateways to other worlds and scary alien threats and military threats too because humans are trigger happy and if there s military that means some torture too and a complex future history complete with a timeline and cast of characters hey maybe it will have a detective story in it a crime mystery and so it will have world weary cops and corporate espionage and gangsters and devious criminals and all the details of a police procedural and don t forget it will have the girls in particular a really hot girl who is super smart and cunning and righteous and powered by secret weapons and she has a glamorous past and a tough past too she s the whole package and since she s in it that means a couple sexy sex scenes too yay all that is great but because this is a good boy who has a supportive family it will also have a lot about family in it too because good families are awesome yay for awesome familiesyay for GEE WHIZ EXCITEMENTso all those exclamation points above may lead you to believe that I am being sarcastic and old man ish and that this is a bad review well if you thought that you would be wrongdon t be so cynicalPeter Hamilton is one of my favorites he s not subtle and Great North Road is elephantine like most of his stuff but he does know how to write and he knows how to create an absorbing narrative that is full of fascinating speculation and intriguing flashbacks and fun fun gee whiz fun it hit me right in my inner 13 year old boy thanks Hamilton this book did not challenge me in any way but who cares it sure hit the spot and it was great to be immersed in this mega book for most of January

Great North Road Read ☆ 109 E murder of a North clone in the English city of Newcastle suggests to Detective Sidney Hurst Sid is a solid investigator who'd like nothing better than to hand off this hot potato of a case The way he figures it whether he solves the crime or not he'll make enough enemies to ruin his career Yet Sid's case is about to take an unexpected turn Because the circumstances of the murder bear an uncanny resemblance to a killing that took place years ago on the planet St Libra where a North clone and his entire household were slaughtered in cold bloodThe convicted slayer Angela Tramelo has a. I m afraid that this huge doorstopper of a novel is going to be one of those love hate jobs I now only love it after having finished it but I felt my stamina drain and drain and drain through long long passages of mind numbing boredom and a litany running through my head went Where is the editor Why can t these last 150 pages be safely omitted without losing any story whatsoeversigh It s rather the same problem I had with The Reality Dysfunction although to be very fair I think this one was the superior of the twoFor one the whole North thing was highly amusing They re a clan of clones who had built one hell of an empire The worldbuilding was frankly amazing too The amount of depth and creation was awe inspiring although to be realistic it was mostly filled with names and places and huge Zanthswarm worries so we can mostly just chalk that up to consistency and organizational charts After all is said and done everything appears in order All the long passages of time spent in either the present where things don t seem to be getting anywhere or the even longer time spent in flashbacks that were to my built understanding already gone over fairly well in present dialogAnd here s where my complaints come inFor ninety percent of this huge novel we were treading over slightly shifting ground either past or present It was only very late in the reading that I realized that the MAIN MAIN MAIN character was Angela The murder mystery was actually rather entertaining with all the complicated issues of discovering who or what was behind the murder of a North but I only had the vague sensation that a slightly important bit player Angela was something special I m here to tell you now dear reader to just ignore everyone else and focus on her The other stories are fine but in the end they all just revolve around her You can say that all roads lead to Angela and you d be just fineYou see that s the problem with a novel that is allowed to be so freaking huge and detailed and dense to develop a life of its own It s hard to tell who s most important I believed Sid and the investigation was the most important I believed it for a freaking long time And then a painfully long backstory for a minor character dominates the novel And other long backstories of others start cropping up And then long backstories start growing like some intelligent plant that has grown to be the most genetically dominant life form of a whole planet driving away all animal and insect life Whoa where did that come from Oh hell It s a spoiler SorryWhat should I say to anyone struggling to get through this novel as they hit these wtf momentsPatience Just have patience I wanted to DNF it I really did But since I just don t pull that crap I flogged myself to stay on targetWhat do you know It paid off Everything converged and wove a pretty awesome tapestry of coolness I sure as hell got a huge primer on Angela I even enjoyed the detailed existence of all those NorthsAnother problem Maybe I m just a shallow reader but I probably would have reacted better and had my flagging attention sit up straighter had I known that such cool action and conflict and Important Shit was happening later on both the Earth and St Libra The BIG THINGS THAT HAPPEN could have been intimated earlier such as when the murder investigation stalled A Really Big Hook would have revved my engines right about thenReader advisory Things Do Get Cool If you re patient If you re patientAnd after all is said and done I STILL think a liberal dose of a red pen would have done this novel a great justice That being said I m still giving it a 4 star because the opening great swaths of the story and the ending were all pretty damn cool Do you like clones and aliens Do you like epic invasions and being an invader Do you like murder mysteries and uestioning the nature of humanity Well good You ll probably like this novel It s nothing if not ambitious as fuck
