The io9 Book Club Is in Session! Let's Talk About Leviathan Wakes!

Illustration for article titled The io9 Book Club Is in Session! Let's Talk About Leviathan Wakes!

Welcome to the monthly meeting of the io9 Book Club. In May, we read Leviathan Wakes, by James S.E. Corey. Jump into comments to get started talking about it!

For those unfamiliar with the io9 book club, here's how it works: You read the book. We create a special book club post on io9 when the meeting is in session. That would be the post you're reading. Then everybody talks about the book in comments for a few days, starting right now.


We hope that Daniel Abraham and/or Ty Franck, the authors who collaborate under the name James S.E. Corey, will join us sometime in the next week to talk about the book. So, what did you think of Leviathan Wakes?

Want to get started on our next book?

In June, we'll be reading The Memory Garden by Mary Rickert. We'll meet on July 7 to discuss it, and we hope Rickert can join us to discuss it later that week.

I've read all the books in this series to date, and I've enjoyed them. I don't understand all the excitement, however. They're strictly old-fashioned B-movie sci-fi. They don't carry anything like the depth or heft of Alastair Reynolds' space opera, the humor and excitement of Iain Banks, or even the promise of newcomer Ann Leckie's work. They're fun, they borrow widely, and ... I'm not sure what else to say about them. I hope this is not the best that PB (post-Banks) space opera has to offer!
