Stazjia’s Commentary

The House of Suns

Posted on: September 23, 2008

I’ve just finished the latest novel by Alastair Reynolds, called The House of Suns. It was as good as all his other science fiction novels although it isn’t set in his Revelation Space Universe, like many of the others. Its big theme is morality and genocide, in particular as it relates to beings who are not organic but machine although with their own consciousness.

It sounds heavy but it is an exciting, interesting as well as a thoughtful book and I recommend it for anybody who enjoys science fiction.
