In AD 2600, the human race is finally beginning to realize its full potential. Hundreds of colonized planets scattered across the galaxy host a multitude of prosperous and wildly diverse cultures. Genetic engineering has pushed evolution far beyond nature's boundaries, defeating disease and producing extraordinary spaceborn creatures. Huge fleets of sentient trader starships thrive on the wealth created by the industrialization of entire star systems. And throughout inhabited space the Confederation Navy keeps the peace. A true golden age is within our grasp. But now something has gone catastrophically wrong. On a primitive colony planet a renegade criminal's chance encounter with an utterly alien entity unleashes the most primal of all our fears. An extinct race, which inhabited the galaxy aeons ago called it "The Reality Dysfunction". It is the nightmare, which has prowled beside us since the beginning of history. "Absolute vintage science-fiction. Hamilton puts British sci-fi back into interstellar overdrive" - "The Times".

I hadn't read anything from Peter F. Hamilton before but this book turned out to be really good! It's part one of an epic space opera, and definitely one of the better science-fiction books I've read.

The naked god trilogy is, quite simply, the most awesome space opera I have ever read. It is immense in scope and length. The sheer depth of the story and the number of characters and technologies is mind boggling. I've read the entire series 3 times now. The books are falling apart from use. Will no doubt read it again sometime.
