What in the world is The Reality Dysfunction actually about? Last night I finished chapter five or six and ended up somewhere around page 105. I think I started the next chapter before going to sleep. Now Peter Hamilton has introduced a chapter regarding the colonization of this new planet and has only just starting writing about the voidhawks again. Somewhere in that first hundred pages Hamilton decided to advance the chronology a good 20-25 years. Even that has some conflicting information, though. Syrinx, the pilot of a voidhawk mentions something about “teenaged”, but she also mentions that the Edenist man she is with is 125 years old, a hundred years older than she is, so I’m a little fuzzy on the timeline. But to confuse things even more just two chapters previous we saw the birth of the voidhawk and pilot.
Do I like the book so far? Yeah. The Reality Dysfunction: Emergence is interesting. I don’t quite know what’s going on, but it’s interesting.
