A Solitude of Stars is disturbing and breathtaking in equal measure. It could be called a science-fiction dystopia, but I think the book goes much deeper than that.
What interested me very much was how to tell the story of the Apparat and Dirigiste societies ranging across our local planetary system seeking peace by waging war to achieve it - much as we do today - while also weaving in elements of a wider galactic history, a history that links both forwards and backwards to the core narrative.
Solitude raises the question: is humanity actually capable of peace? Solitude is an incredible flight of imagination - creating these worlds, technology, and pathos with considerable authority.
