Misspent Youth, Paperback / softback Book

Misspent Youth Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Set in the near-future, over three hundred years before Pandora's Star and Judas Unchained, Peter F.

Hamilton's Misspent Youth is a gripping introduction to the world of the Commonwealth Saga. Jeff Baker is granted the gift of eternal youth.

However, it's not all it seems . . . It is 2040 and, after decades of research, we can finally rejuvenate a human being.

At seventy-eight years old, Jeff Baker - renowned inventor and philanthropist - has given the world much of his creative genius.

He's therefore selected as first choice for this gift. At first, rejuvenation feels like a miracle, until the glow begins to fade.

Personal relationships start to break down and the world waits for more brilliant new work.

Living the dream will come at a cost, but can Jeff pay the price? 'The owner of the most powerful imagination in science fiction' - Ken Follett 'Hamilton handles massive ideas with enviable ease' - Guardian
