Review: Rogue Star

Rogue Star
Rogue Star by Frederik Pohl
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

This was quite possibly the worst Frederik Poul novel I’ve ever read. Every single one of the characters is unlikeable and annoying. The main female character switches her romantic allegiance several times for no apparent reason, and the main male character constantly pines for her, amid a LOT of whining. There’s nothing resembling science in this one, the plot and very story is hard to follow, bandit really is not up to the standards of the author who wrote Gateway. And it has preciously little to do with the other two books in the Starchild Trilogy besides trite happenstance. A very disappointing read.
