    One thought on “The Reality Dysfunction”

    1. Mix space battles, zombies, interplanetary smugglers, space pirates, living spaceships, mysterious highly advanced alien race vanished without a trace for no apparent reason, a very lucky guy with a dream, struggling colonists on a newly discovered planet, devil worshiper cults, sentient planets, mercenaries with some serious high tech body modifications that would make any cyborg in science fiction die of envy, and a lost doomsday device Basically anything you can think of probably with excepti [...]

    2. I m on page 450 and I don t know if I can finish this one So far we ve had Awesome Humans biologically bonded to technology Because I can t wait for my own neural link into the internets Space colonisation programme, settlers, frontiers, etc I always enjoy this sort of thing.Not so awesome The protagonist is a tremendous Gary Stu not only do his adventures all turn out all right, he also ALWAYS gets the girl He s handsome In a roguish way And as soon as he smiles at any female in the vicinity, s [...]

    3. A bit of investment required to finish this The Reality Dysfunction is a monster of a book, boasting than 1200 pages It is also a somewhat distressing read By the time the book hits one third there has been a multitude of uneasy things for the reader to digest Rape exploitation satanic rituals torture murder and mutilation where, in some cases, the victims are children genocide injuries inflicted to protagonists that will make the squeamish light headed demonic possession to name but a few It s [...]

    4. sigh I wanted to like this I did And I liked parts of it a lot, many of the ideas were fascinating, several of the characters I really dug But there were other issues that hampered my overall enjoyment, and they can t be ignored.Note The rest of this review has been withdrawn due to the recent changes in policy and enforcement You can read why I came to this decision here.In the meantime, you can read the entire review at Smorgasbook

    5. Awesome When I went through law school and then bar school I was forced to eject many vital tidbits of information that were taking up valuable space in my brain my address, my year of birth, etc I have no idea how Peter F Hamilton holds all of this massive universe, its technology and characters in one noggin He clearly does not remember his wife s birthday or his underwear size We all have to make sacrifices.The Reality Dysfunction is fun Lots of fun I flew through this book and forgave its fl [...]

    6. Wow, what to say about this book It is NOT EASY READING, that s for sure The first 1 4 almost is like running through a valley of quicksand, but I swear the momentum is worth it I felt my interest waning sometimes because it is SO DENSE, but then, rather than stopping, I d skim a bit forward over all the meticulous details of the worlds etc and get back on track with some of the characters This book requires stamina but if you re into sci fi is worth the effort All the thought and imagination th [...]

    7. TL,DR There are very few SF stories that justify than 120,000 words Jo Walton s blog on Hugo Nominees 1998Jo Walton is the best sf books reviewer extant IMO , as an author she is no slouch either Unfortunately for her The Reality Dysfunctionis the exception that proves the rule, this is one of the very few SF stories that she is talking about Certainly a book this magnitude, clocking on at over 1,200 pages, is dissuasive for many people If you are interested in reading this book but feel intimi [...]

    8. Vai nsp im nt toare a mai fost povestea asta nsp im nt toare, violent , ocant , n ucitoare i halucinant.Mi e imposibil s rezum multitudinea de fire narative mpletite at t de ingenios de c tre Hamilton In principiu, peste aproximativ 500 de ani, omenirea a evadat din limitele P m ntului suprapopulat i s a mpr tiat printre stele, ntemeind colonii pe lumi aflate la sute de mii de ani lumin Dar pe una dintre aceste planete colonii, Lalonde, R ul p nde te lacom lumea celor vii i i a teapt chemarea nc [...]

    9. I like trash and Hamilton writes the best trash so elaborate the dead are coming back to possess the living except it s all science fictional great world building I love world building when the world being built gets destroyed in this book, that s a bunch of worlds plus some cool but corny but still cool sex scenes Hamilton sure likes his sex scenes I guess we have that in common.

    10. I really wanted to like this novel a lot I wanted to get invested from the sheer length of the novel and come out the other side, saying, Wow, that was fantastic Just because I m not doesn t mean that the novel wasn t worthwhile, it just means that the negative qualities of it managed to outweigh what was good.Let s face it A novel that is almost 1500 pages is either full of characters, full of story, or full of meandering and inconsequential shit that didn t really serve the final solid tale I [...]

    11. Ah, the Night s Dawn Trilogy One of the most amazing, wild space opera s ever written In the UK it is 3 massive books, while here in the US they nickel and dimed us by splitting them up into 6 It doesn t really matter though, because it is not so much a trilogy as it is one gigantic continuous story, regardless of where they are split One book ends at whatever chapter, and the following book simply begins at the next Peter Hamilton is probably my favorite SF writer when it comes to world buildin [...]

    12. It took a hell of a long time, but I ve made it through The Reality Dysfunction, the first volume in a trilogy recommended to me by Ennis It s a space opera about a futuristic society plagued by an evil force that sequestrates, or maybe just possesses, people.The story takes place in the Confederation in the 2600s The set up is quite detailed and interesting One group, the Adamists, lives on a failing planet Earth and various other planets The Adamists are mostly like the people of today, but wi [...]

    13. 4 Stars Reality Dysfunction by Peter Hamilton stole me from reality for quite some time Coming in at over 1200 pages in length, this book is a massive endeavor Fortunately for me Peter Hamilton writes hard science fiction and he specializes in his world building and imagination Reality Dysfunction excels at both of these things The best thing about this book was the world that he built within The story and the characters are almost irrelevant and forgettable compared to the universe within.The b [...]

    14. This is the worst written book I ve ever read twice Hamilton is not just a bad writer but a bad writer in a hurry superabundantly verbose, careless about style and tone, overdescriptive, flaccidly repetitive, malapropistic when he isn t spouting tired old cliches He s a lousy scene painter, too, careless about details and how they fit together and given to commencing every descriptive paragraph with the physical dimensions of whatever is being described twenty kilometers long and weighing nine h [...]

    15. What an marathon this book was for me, it took me almost 40 days to finish this book.The Reality Dysfunction is not for a weak hearted, it is 1223 pages long and whooping 41 hours in audio.Hamilton goes to super detail describing anything in this book be it a species a planet or a star ship And many times due to this attention to detail I lost regarding where we are as regards to story.Also as I mostly hear audio to and fro from work, I used to doze off and had to start entire chapter again Imag [...]

    16. The word epic was created for books like this Clocking in at 1100 pages, this is only part 1 of a trilogy that consists of two similarly sized volumes I thought at first that the author might just need a really good editor, especially since the first half dozen chapters kept introducing entirely new settings and characters It was difficult to get into because it didn t seem to focus on any one plot and it was hard to remember who was who However, all the different threads slowly began to weave [...]

    17. Thanks to Graham loaning me a copy, I learned that many of the books I had previously enjoyed, we actually quite weak and 2 dimensional by comparison.A much longer book than I would normally read especially considering the whole trilogy is around 4500 pages but I would would been happy if it had continued to be twice the length.Character development is great, and a good background is even given to people whose play only a small role in the plot The technology is interesting and creative, but alm [...]

    18. I am a fan of SF movies but haven t really read many SF novels Actually this might be the first big book I ever read in this genre So having nothing better to do after purchasing my first ever e book reader I decided to start this book at the advice of a piano player who looks like a weight lifting professional athlete what I am so glad I mustered the patience to keep reading this book Actually I felt that the writer is going somewhere big How big I don t know Mystery of life and universe big OK [...]

    19. Unfortunately The Night s Dawn trilogy is a huge, festering shamble where a few nuggets of interesting story is drowned in a horribly over long stream of irrelevant and meandering side and subplots It starts off ok, focusing on just one plotline, which leads up to a rather nice moment, but then it seems like Hamilton lost all his marbles because the story loses all focus and coherence, and the only thing that kept me painfully reading the last 4000 pages was to find out how in the world he would [...]

Acum c am terminat pentru a treia oar aceast carte pot zice lini tit este la fel de bun ca atunci c nd am citit o prima dat i a doua oar De i este cam contestat pe internetul rom nesc, din cauza includerii unor elemente horror i fantasy, pentru mine este una dintre cele mai captivante c r i SF din toate timpurile Sf r itul m a f cut mai mult dec t curios despre ce o s se nt mple mai ncolo i, mai ales, cine c tiga la final Disfunc ia realit ii este prima carte n care de i nu in cu vreun personaj, [...]

    21. I love everything that Peter has written, except this old series from 1996.WARNING includes very graphically described torture and rape and mutilation sometimes of teens and children Overall this was a very good book, but only half the fun and quality Commonwealth series books Lots of characters, great sci fi imagery and technology, and some truly magical and wonderful scenes of human to organic spaceship bonding and platonic love, especially in the first chapter Glorious.However, very sadly Spo [...]

    22. If you trying to decipher a bunch of techno babble, without any initial explanation, that may or may not get clarified chapters into the book This book may be for you.This is what grandparents must feel like when hearing a casual discussion about how VOIP TCP IP packets are prioritized with next generation networks using IPv6, and the potential social ramifications of packet filtering from ISPs who are owned by content providers.Edit I would like to add that the story does seem interesting, but [...]

    23. I had mixed feeling about this book Most of my feelings are positive, but a few are negative First, the negative.Sexual politicsAt some point early on an Edenist character references the liberation of women that occurred at some point in the past Apparently, many of the Adamists didn t get that memo The two big factions of humans are the Edenists, who are telepathic and use a lot of biotechnology, and the Adamists, who generally refuse these things for religious reasons I m completely fine with [...]

    24. Peter F Hamilton paints vivid images with his stories The characters are engaging, imaginative, and relatable His worlds are logical Spock would expect no less and other worldly The situations that the main characters find them selves in, and his story arcs are believable and entertaining All his books are massive in concept and page count with this story coming in at 1200 pages.But reading his books are a pure escape and time just flies Hamilton also combines science fiction with fantasy and do [...]

    25. I had never read anything by Peter Hamilton, and I actually picked this up because I liked the cover art on the third book in the trilogy I had glanced at the back cover and it sounded good I was blown away Hamilton clearly knows his science and writes with an integrity to the future he s imagined He pulls off a fantastically advanced future without making our technology invincible his aliens are infinitely robust than simple biped mirrors of some aspect of humanity for all that I DO have a sof [...]

    26. this.wasazing a complete change to any of the scifi I ve been recently reading and yet familiar Some interesting concepts raised in this 1st book, and there s so much I d like to say, but then you d never experience it yourself It s awesome scifi ands as this review mentions In AD 2600 the human race is finally beginning to realize its full potential A true golden age is within our grasp But now something has gone catastrophically wrong It is the nightmare which has prowled beside us since the b [...]

    27. Very entertaining if ramshackle space opera Part one of three My 1997 review This is an amazing grab bag of a book Written in multi viewpoint best seller style, it features Adamists Edenists think Mechanist vs Shaper , sentient bitek starships habitats, prisoners transported to primitive worlds, Secrets of the Ancients in the Ruin Ring, a young and very sexy Lord of Ruin, a Stephen King twist for the villains what have I missed The electrically powered sidewheel paddleboats The Star Kingdom of K [...]

    28. This is the first book I read by Peter F Hamilton and it got me hooked It s not the best book in the series, I think the Neutronium Alchemist gets that vote, but this book certainly lays down the foundation for an exciting, detailed and complex universe for the reader I was totally enthralled I really enjoy books that draw you in and create such a picture of in depth detail that you really feel as if you could be there The Reality Dysfunction is one of those books It conveys the scope of the uni [...]
