Book Review: Caliban's War

Caliban's War
James S. A. Corey (pen name)
Science fiction

Short version: same as the first.

Director's cut: I found myself getting irritated at some of the authors' quirks. For instance, they tend to create throwaway characters--characters who come on, get named, do something important for one chapter, then die or wander off. Also, the characterization is even less convincing than in Leviathan Wakes, and there's even less to think about. On the other hand, I read it in a few large gulps, so it's still got the space opera thing going for it.


  1. Like I said before, I really enjoyed up to the third book for all these same reasons. Do please at least read the next.

    1. No worries. See prior remarks re: reading this one in a few large gulps. It's what we grew up reading, after all.
