Riassunto: From the author of the magnificent 'Night's Dawn' trilogy, a provocative look at the days not too long after tomorrow It is forty years into the future and, following decades of research and trillions of Euros spent on genetics, Europe is finally in a position to rejuvenate a human being. As the first subject for treatment, is chosen Jeff Baker - the father of the datasphere (which replaced the internet) and philanthropist extraordinaire. After eighteen months in a German medical facility, the seventy-eight-year-old patient returns home looking like a healthy twenty-year-old. MISSPENT YOUTH follows the effect his reappearance has on his family and friends -- his young ex-model wife Sue, his teenage son Tim, and also on his long-term pals who are now themselves all pensioners, and starting to resent what Jeff has become. Bestselling author Peter F. Hamilton has brought his unique story-telling skills to bear on an aspect of future living that is bound to increasingly fascinate.
L'autore: Peter F. Hamilton began writing in 1987 and sold his first short story to FEAR magazine in 1988. His previous novels include the Greg Mandel series, and the three novels of his bestselling 'Night's Dawn Trilogy': THE REALITY DYSFUNCTION, THE NEUTRONIUM ALCHEMIST and THE NAKED GOD. His previous novel is FALLEN DRAGON.
