embers of war


Embers of War will not get my Planetary Awards nomination.  The primary reason is that far too much of the book consisted of characters thinking rather than doing or talking.  I might have enjoyed the book more if some of those thoughts had been exposed through dialogue rather than internal monologue, or if some of them had been left out completely, letting the reader infer them from the characters’ actions or conversations.
