Recommends it for: Fan of psychological Sci-Fi
My rating 4.7

A short novel "The Desolation of Solitude" by Sean Paul Thomas is for me a complete surprise in the writer's opus. I read a few of his books, but none was a SciFi genre. I have to admit that I'm pleasantly surprised because Sean-Paul Thomas writes very well in this area as well. The story itself is very dark and leads us to the world of the psyche of a man wandering in an unknown place, without remembering the past. Since I did not reveal too many stories, I can tell you that what i

i really enjoyed this short story, the title character wakes up without his memory of whom and where he is, w/o his memory he is like a child, lost, scared and alone

as the story progresses you are taken on this wild ride between “what the heck is going on” and “whoa, didn’t see that coming”, when you discover the truths behind the whys and how’s, you still find yourself routing for the main character

the ending gives you a true feeling of just what alone can truely mean,you are also left with a b

Stories about amnesia or loss of memory have always intrigued me. So when I saw the description of this book, I was hooked.

I did enjoy the book quite a bit. The story was interesting. The development of the characters was good. And there were a few very interesting twists along the way.

However, the ending left me clueless. I reread the last few pages several times, thinking I must have missed something. But I still have no idea what the ending means. It felt like the book just suddenly stopped,

Stupid and pointless

This book was nothing more than a selfish expose of all that is wrong with the human race except in a way justice was served .
I certainly did not find it fascinating but rather frustrating.
I will however find it was all too human. You know a
survival epoch of something with a goal.
It should have been titled Lust in Space.

Good idea

While I felt the plot line was wonderful, the poor writing left me struggling to finish. Lots of twists, turns and unexpected events but also a lot of grammar and spelling errors

A young man awakens from a long hibernation sleep on-board an eerie and crew-less space shuttle with no memory of who he is or how he ended up on board.

When a young woman awakens from hibernation shortly after him and curiously has no previous memories about her past either, our protagonist is forced to solve the mystery of the 'lost in space' vessel, who the pair really are and what became of the other crew members who haunt him frequently with their ghostly and chilling apparitions.

David has been in deep hibernation on a lost and abandoned space shuttle. He wakes with no conception of who, or where he is. He wakes to a sterile and atmospheric, contained world. When he investigates the shuttle, he finds stages of wreckage to the ship's control systems and an old skeleton. Violence has obviously occurred, but what was behind it, was he involved? Eventually two other crew members awaken, Anna and Mark, both are in the same bewildered state as David.

What has occurred on the sp

In early parts of the novel, the writing seems to be that of a 12 year old (no editor?). This becomes less distracting with time (partly, as the narrator is intentionally so superficial/immature). As the story progresses, you really are pulled in-excellent pacing. Fascinating read.

Not a bad story but the book could be vastly improved by a good editor.

Intense

Wow. what can I say, you will be surprised at the findings about himself once he leaves the pod. once you experience his past you will wonder how his future will end.

This book had a slow start but I'm glad that I kept at it. It got kinda creepy and a little disgusting in a good sorta way. I wish it had been longer.

Sean is an author from Edinburgh in Scotland. He spent most of his childhood and teenage years on the move with his Scottish and Irish Parents (No, they weren't bank robbers lol ) growing up in the likes of Cyprus, Germany, Wales and England, as an army brat.

With a keen interest in both reading and writing, he was diagnosed with the travel and writing bugs very early on in life. Now, writing, trav
