However, it is clear that either my tastes have changed or this series didn't age well. While they are competently written with a few twists that I didn't remember, this series in particu I've been revisiting the science fiction of my youth, trying to see how my tastes and attitudes have evolved since then. While they are competently written with a few twists that I didn't remember, this series in particular, reads like an extended male adolescent wish fulfillment.
Some of Chalker's more interesting thoughts on bodily transformation a theme which runs through at least all of three Chalker I've read is subsumed by what now reads as teen sexual fantasy. Although it's not quite as prevalent in this series as it is in some of his other works, the pubescent male objectification of women is in full force. Despite my complaints, this series, and Chalker's other work are worth the time to read. They are an unique example of s mainstream science fiction. They are also written to a level where younger readers teens we'll find the concepts and prose challenging but not overwhelming.
Competently written with enough action and intrigue to keep the reader engaged, but lacking the qualities that better science fiction writers were producing even in its time. The Jack L. For all intents and purposes, the writing is the same.

The interesting thing here is the comparison of how the protagonist's character changes against his baseline in a technological world Cerberus vs in a pastoral world Lilith. Just like the first book, it's a nice, easy, fast-paced read. I rate the book at a Very Good 4 stars out of 5. The books in Jack Jack L.

Chalker's "Four Lords of the Diamond" series are: 1. Second book of the Four Lords of the Diamond. All the books in the series start with the same premise. So naturally humans use this as a prison planet. When Earth authorities find out that the heads of the planet are making deals with aliens who may become enemies, they send an agent out to download his personality into four bodies, one for each planet, to overthrow the ruler. Jack Chalker is always entertaining, even if some of his quirks show up here — on the second planet, people swap bodies if they are close together when sleeping.
Mar 30, Gwen rated it liked it. An interesting story, not quite as groundbreaking as its predecessor but then again the ground was already broken, so to speak. Just like the last book, it has a well-thought-out science fiction aspect, different than the last in view of it being a different planet.
It's quite interesting to see the differences between the three different governments Confederacy, Lilith and Cerberus and how they were created based on the history and needs of its people, and how vastly different they turned out An interesting story, not quite as groundbreaking as its predecessor but then again the ground was already broken, so to speak.

It's quite interesting to see the differences between the three different governments Confederacy, Lilith and Cerberus and how they were created based on the history and needs of its people, and how vastly different they turned out. It's also interesting to see Qwin find ways past the system, just as Cal had in his book.
As far as the storyline goes, it's not as particularly amazing as Lilith, but it's still certainly worth a read. Aug 12, Muzzlehatch rated it liked it Recommends it for: fans of the author, genre sf fans with low expectations. Shelves: sf. Typical Chalker; more typical of what I've read by him than the previous volume 'Lilith' which treads the fantasy-sf border with slightly more interesting results. Still, it moves along and as always you're never quite sure if all of the heroes will make it through alive, which is more than you can say for a lot of Chalker's other pulpish contemporaries.
Not bad, but I'm in no real rush to finish the series. View 1 comment. Mar 29, Joy rated it really liked it. An assassin's mind has been planted into a body destined for a convict planet. Cerberus is a totally water world, with trees growing up from the ocean bottom so big that cities are built in their branches.

The assignment of the assassin is to kill the Lord who controls the planet. Once he is stranded on Cerberus, he gets his own ideas. Between mind-swapping and computer scams, the plot is so complicated one has to pay close attention; but the development of humans and worlds makes it well worth while.

The individual books in the series are decent in their own right but each book doesn't really shine until you read the whole series. Then the overall effect and intent of the author shines through. A case in point of the whole out shinning the individual pieces. This would be a problem on longer books but these are on the smallish side so it diminishes the negatives. Sep 05, Chris Catania rated it it was amazing Shelves: science-fiction , spy-thriller. Excellent book. I like this book more than the first, which i 'only' gave 4 stars.
The main character is involved in 'thinking' plots, subterfuge, mind game with mind games. Feb 27, Harry Weinhofer rated it it was amazing.
