I've just finished reading "The Reality Dysfunction" by Peter F. Hamilton.
Whew! It's huge, 1221 pages... It took me over a week.
I wouldn't say it's brilliant, but it's not bad.
Apparently it's the first in a trilogy. Oh my, I'm not sure that I can find the time to finish it.
If you liked this then check out books written by Iain Banks or William Gibson.
