This book follows soon after the first Tom Dreyfus story. By this time, you're more familiar with the main characters, so you can explore their personalities a little further through the story. The story focuses on a new crisis that grips the Glitter Band, with a seemingly unrelated side story. The emphasis in this story seemed to be more on Dreyfus, his two deputies, and the Supreme Prefect, than the underlying crisis. It felt like a bit of a reverse of the first Tom Dreyfus story in this respect, and made this book a little more sentimental than the first. I like how Reynolds' books are...
This illustrated history of the Millennium Falcon is essential reading for Star Wars fans.
I've been reading The Expanse book series by James S.A. Corey and enjoying them. I thought I'd share my reviews here as I go.
One of the features of The Expanse is the Belter language or dialect which adds a whole dimension to the story that would ordinarily be lacking without it. Ars Technica interviewed the linguist who helped create the dialect used in the TV show.
I wanted to share a quote that made me laugh because it is so true: "Meanwhile on Stargate, 95% of planets are Canada."
