A review by jvanwago
Leviathan Wakes, by James S.A. Corey

adventurous dark mysterious tense fast-paced
  • Loveable characters? No
  • Diverse cast of characters? N/A
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? Yes


A page-turner certainly. It had great world-building and was fluidly written. 

That said, I didn’t love the characters. Holden in particular seemed too artificial. 

My biggest beef with the book was how Holden always got his way, no matter how implausibly plotted. 

Spoiler His YouTube uploads start two wars? Holden continuously convinces Top Men that he should be in the middle of all the action? It strains credulity too much.
