not your little fuzzy

Having read little fuzzy when I was younger , this was not what I was expecting from h-beam Piper. the science-fiction is tight, actually explaining the dilemma of faster-than-light travel. The moral dilemma is much more adult then commonly represented in sci-fi.

I'm quitting halfway through because it is truly disturbing that a man would take his personal tragedy as a good excuse to spread tragedy and destruction across the Galaxy in a search for revenge against one man who will NOT be hurt by killing all those people on all those planets. As well as ravaging their economies - setting them back into poverty because he is raided their resources for his own ends. After the show of compassion for the planet where he plans to set his base?

I can't help but to compare this to what we did to Afghanistan and Iraq.

skip to the last chapter. After all that death and destruction our hero turns his ego towards founding a new Dynasty with a new woman. Isn't that just peachy. Nobody learned anything.

Raises some interesting questions

Unlike many other sci fi books that just go "hurr durr look how intellectual I am cause I say what everyone's already thinking and agreed with" it actually provides interesting and controversial dilemas, as a good book does
