Review: Great North Road


Great North Road
Great North Road by Peter F. Hamilton

My rating: 5 of 5 stars



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 experience.

It's a stand-alone novel, so there is no "next book" to pick up. I will be reading more Hamilton though, that is certain.
