Satisfying series finale!
am 26. März 2005
I have to confess: Not having a lot of spare time, it took me about 2 1/2 years to read Peter Hamiltons "Nights Dawn" saga. All in all I have to say: It was a great ride and I do not regret the time.
After "The Neutronium Alchemist", which was in my eyes the best installment of the series, "The Naked God" with its over 1200 pages is full of further surprises and unexpected story developments. Quickly wrapping up the cliffhanger from "The Neutronium Alchemist", Hamilton shows us - for the first time - 25th century Earth, where Louise Kavanough continues her hopeless hunt for Quinn Dexter. Meanwhile, a short passage from "The Reality Dysfunction" gets a whole new meaning and a secret commando led by Joshua Calvert starts searching for the Sleeping God who may have a solution for the posession crisis...
I for my part really liked the hugeness of "Nights Dawn" with its myriads of plotlines and different characters. "The Naked God" answers open questions and resolves the multiple plotlines in a very satisfying way. The final solution of the Possession might be a bit to "far out" for some people, but it was okay with me. And I very much liked the fact that Hamilton took his time to do some last 20 pages about the aftermath of the crisis - showing every main character one last time to finish a great epic.
All in all a terrific experience - I will miss the Confederation Universe!
