If you are familiar with the universe in which this novel stands, it's a really good close look at one character that explains a lot of subtext in the rest of the stories. How did Timothy/Amos get his name? What's it like to grow up on Earth in this time frame if you aren't a Mao or some privileged child? Why is Amos a stone cold killer? If he is a stone cold killer, why work a straight job and not become a pirate or mercenary? Why the dog-like devotion to Naomi? How did he become so good with rocket engines and other mechanical tasks?
Bonus chuckles if you are familiar with Baltimore.
As a standalone story I'm not sure how it would be received. If you have no idea what The Expanse is, either in print or on screen, then it might serve as a nice aperitif, an introduction to this strangely realistic future. Or it will confuse and bore you. Either way, give it a shot!
I finished the third season of the Expanse TV series the night before I bought this. I was curious to get more info on this series, and the novella was just the right way for me to dip my toe in the books.
The Churn gives the backstory of fan favorite character, Amos Burton, the not-very-gentle giant crewman of the Rocinante. On the series, his past is alluded to, but is unlikely to ever be depicted (the show has so many irons in the fire). So I thought I'd give the Churn a try.
Turns out that was a good decision. Corey's prose is very good, and the story works well to fill in gaps of Amos' background. From here, I've gone on to purchase the first three novels in the Expanse series. Now I just need time to read them all.
