11. The Quiet War

by Paul McAuley 403pp.

I read a bunch of good stuff about this book and got it for a gift. I really wanted to like it more than I did and I probably wouldn't have finished it if it hadn't been a gift. It's set in the future and there are people on earth and people who live out around Jupiter and Saturn and the two groups have strained relations. The story is told from several points of view of people on both sides of the conflict. The characters, the world and the set-up are all interesting but I had a tough time getting into it and a tough time keeping everything straight.
