Nemesis Games by James SA Corey

The fifth book in the NYT bestselling Expanse series, Nemesis Games drives the crew of the Rocinante apart, and as they struggle to survive, the inner planets fall victim to an enemyโ€™s catastrophic plan.

A thousand worlds have opened, and the greatest land rush in human history has begun. As wave after wave of colonists leave, the power structures of the old solar system begin to buckle.

Ships are disappearing without a trace. Private armies are being secretly formed. The sole remaining protomolecule sample is stolen. Terrorist attacks previously considered impossible bring the inner planets to their knees. The sins of the past are returning to exact a terrible price.

And as a new human order is struggling to be born in blood and fire, James Holden and the crew of the Rocinante must struggle to survive and get back to the only home they have left.

I started this after watching a few episodes of The Expanse Season 5.

Compared to the previous stories, this is more of an exploration of the crew’s individual forays into a world they’ve left behind when they wound up together on the Rocinante.

Hoping to catch up on the rest of Season 5 and also see where the story heads to in the next book.

The Last God was an amazing piece of high storytelling by Phillip Kennedy Johnson. Riccardo Federici‘s artwork is simply out of this world. I spent a lot of time on each panel marvelling at the drawings.

I read these as individual comics: (The Last God: 1-12 and Specials: The Last God: Tales from the Book of Ages and
The Last God: Songs of the Lost Children).

Now I’m looking forward to read more stories set in the Cain Anuun universe.

Master from imdb.com
An action-thriller about an alcoholic professor who is sent to a juvenile school, where he clashes with a gangster, who uses the children of the school for criminal activities.

Partly good but I’m left confused at what is the point this movie is making. Is it a statement that everything is related to politics? Or is it a statement that juvenile prisons do not reform people but rather makes them career criminals?

Vijay and Vijay Sethupathi do enough justice to their roles as one might expect from them. I have not clue as to what roles the female characters had in this movie. Malavika Mohan was just to add a female presence just like Nayanthara in Bigil or Keerthy Suresh in Sarkar. And Andrea seems to be there just to make up for the pre-climax action sequence.
