Set in the near future, over 300 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 78 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?

Not sure what percentage of a story needs to be sci-Fi in order for it to be listed as a Sc-iF book, but you won't find much in this. This was almost a Jeffrey Archer listen. Unfortunately it is a long winded and dull. I very much enjoyed this authors other books but think this book is a dud.
"A bit of a slim story."
Compared to the previous 4 books from Peter this was a bit slim in depth an focused too much on lust. Only my opinion. I prefer the depth of the commonwealth series. My review typed on my phone in a hurry.
