I also found the characters flat. The lack of depth in them and the void of details put me to sleep. I like sci-fi, but I could not get into this one. Maybe it is just the mood I am in. I will try to read it again after reading your review.

Incredible! I may be wrong if I say it is the height of wickedness for a brother to do what president Dixon did to his brother. Nice review anyways!

'Official Review: The Proximity of Stars' by Benedict Stuart has a vivid introduction. It well describes the minute details of the science fiction story of the book for readers. The point that the plot of the story is based on the confrontation between the almighty evil dictator and his noble brother is worth mentioning in the review. Also, the point that the scenes in the story are realistic, as mentioned in the review, is remarkable for readers. It was great to learn that this is a real space opera awkwardly dressed in severe robes of hard science fiction!

I had never read about a space opera, and I am intrigued by it. I want to read this book to find out why Brian's brother, Dixon created false charges of espionage and conspiracy to imprison his own brother!

Brian and Gary was best friends trying to celebrate their victory by creating an island near black sea, yes it is true when they say you must put God in everything we do even on small unsual things, because whenever you plan something the Devil is also planning too to erase that idea you had into your mind. We all see that witness when he used Brian's brother for his evil actions when Brian and Gary got arrested with false charges and Brian brother was behind it.

A sci-fi novel that follows the adventures of two friends whose troubles began when they were both arrested due to false charges. This seems interesting for all fans of the genre. Congrats on BOTD!

Thank you for your great review. It's nice that it had no errors, but I also like books where there is a lot of character development. I want to be inside the character's head and at least guess what might happen next. Since I don't choose science fiction books usually, I'm going to pass on this book and let those that enjoy that genre read it.

Well, I believe there I a reason behind everything, though sometimes, the reason may be a bad one. I would love to read this book, to find out why Dixon would be behind his brother Brain's conspiracy

A space opera sounds like an interesting genre. It’s too bad the characters descriptions and some explanations fall flat. Thanks for your review!

This Book by Benedict Stuart is a captivating and thrilling adventure with a unique blend of hard science fiction and space opera. The plot is full of suspense and surprises that make it impossible to predict what will happen next. The characters are thrown from one dangerous situation to another and the story has an interesting and realistic take on the consequences of space battles and exploration. Despite the lack of description and psychological motivations for the characters, the novel is still a gripping and exciting read, Thanks for the wonderful review.

This book does sound like it’s full of action and adventure suitable for sci-fi lovers. However, the lack of depth to the characters—particularly psychological justification for their actions—and descriptions is a dealbreaker for me. Thank you for the helpful review.

I'm having a hard time understanding what this book is really about, and as such, I'd rather not read it. And the characters seem to lack depth as the review has put it. I don't think I'd enjoy reading this book.
I'm here for a good time, not a long time. Yolo!
