Praise for Peter F. Hamilton's "The Great North Road"

"Hamilton's latest standalone tale is a whopper" --SFX

Praise for Peter F. Hamilton's "The Evolutionary Void"

"Satisfying and powerful . . . Space Opera doesn't get much more epic."--SFFWorld

"Spiced with plenty of action and intrigue." --San Jose Mercury News

Praise for Peter F. Hamilton's "The Temporal Void"

"Fusing elements of hard SF with adventure fantasy tropes, Hamilton has singlehandedly raised the bar for grand-scale speculative storytelling." --Publishers Weekly

"A great, sprawling, ripping yarn reminiscent of Golden Age Science Fiction." --SFCrowsnest

Praise for Peter F. Hamilton's "The Dreaming Void"

"A real spellbinder from a master storyteller . . . dozens of scenarios, a surprisingly well-delineated cast of thousands, plotting enough to delight the most Machiavellian of readers." --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"Peter F. Hamilton [is the] owner of the most powerful imagination in science fiction, author of immense, complex far-future sagas."
--Ken Follett, author of "World Without End" --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

What a story, what a mind this story has come from. Peter F Hamilton I just wish I had one percent of your creative juices. This book is a monster coming in at over 1100 pages. I read every page, so titles I start to skim pages when the story starts to wain, but this behemoth is brilliant beginning to end. I couldnt believe my luck the other day when more of Hamiltons' books were 99p each on the Kindle deals, the Void series. Cant wait to get stuck into these

A cross between a murder mystery and an alien hunt. The story has many layers that build as it goes along, with character back stories being drip fed in to provide detail at various points, but not too much so you keep guessing. It is long but I never felt it dragged, contrary to some other reviews. It is entertaining but not revolutionary. A good solid book, without being ground-breaking.

As usual Peter F Hamilton delivers a complex and engrossing tale. His inventive imaginings of our future are epic in scale and yet he still weaves a cracking story of intrigue, murder and espionage. Yet another tour de force in his arsenal of Sci-fi greats.

First congratulations to the publisher for setting this to a sensible price for an ebook. £2.40 made buying it a nobrainer. And I'm glad I did. Hamilton is a new author for me and after reading this I will be buying some more. I was a bit daunted at first by the length of this novel. I am not a great lover of epic tomes, but I was pleasently surprised. Hamilton kept my interest all the way through, it flagged a little now and again, and I can't help feel some pruning would have been an improvement, but on the whole it was very enjoyable.

The book sets the scene early on and grabs you, it doesn't let you go until the end. Good pace with well thought out plot lines. Not your typical sci-fi, had a nice element of crime.

After reading this, I'm eager to check out other books by Peter F. Hamilton.

Crime, Fantasy, Space and Thriller all in one book. Based on Newcastle of the 25th century this is an absorbing read which can be difficult to put down at times. Even though it is 1,000 + pages long it never gets boring to read. Peter Hamilton switches regularly between different scenarios which keeps things interesting. A must buy for avid readers.

Fantastic novel. Proper page turner, despite being over 1000 pages long. Only one quibble....do Geordies really say "Crap on that" as much as they do in this book?! :)

I liked this book, for lots of reasons, one was the attention to detail regarding streets and pace names, the other, the storyline, I don't want to give too much away, but I liked it. From a tech point of view, also quite interesting especially how people might communicate in the future as well as bio engineering.
