As a science fiction lover, The Expanse excites me. i prefer to think of it as Future History. I knew the books would contain more detail, but i am still surprised at how much detail, and the differences. Sure the major elements were kept for the show, but the characters are so much more intimately fleshed out. The performance was smooth and straight in delivery. Emotion is only conveyed by the authors good use of language, making the orators job easy. Enjoy listening to this book, I did.
I highly recommend this epic adventure that fuses Blade Runner with Star Trek. While not all of the characters receive well-developed and singular character arcs, the Epic scope and balanced adventurous pacing make this a compelling story. Ready for the next book right away!
Without a doubt it had b=to be the creepy, disgusting monstrosity that first emerges in the books prologue.
I'm not sure about books, but several parts of the story reminded me of the movie "The Thing" and the game "Deadspace" in all the best ways.
There were several parts that made me and my twisted mind laugh out loud and clap my hands in glee as I listened to the terrifying circumstances the characters were forced to endure.
It took me a little while to warm up to him, but Jefferson's delivery is amazing and full of rich personality that enhances the text. The book is also beautifully written, featuring sentences and turns of phrase and dialogue I found sticking with me, that I'd repeat to myself for weeks after hearing.
Fantastic idea. Did not meet expectations and the performance ruined it for me i think.
Probably not, I forced myself to get through each chapter of this one. I don't have that kind of time...When I give a book, that take hours of my life to complete, a chance only to be bored the entire time it's usually a good sign that I won't be motivated to give them another shot.
Narration was very dry. There were moments where the action which is supposed to be exciting sounded like someone was waking up and getting out of bed. Tone did not match what was going on for the most part in my opinion.
Maybe. I think this story has potential but a bad performance or vision from a director can ruin it...like any adaptation I suppose.
In this case I think the audiobook ruined it for me. I stopped listening around chapter 15 and read the rest but could not get the narrators voice out of my head. Maybe i'll reread it years later after I've had a chance to forget this utterly boring performance.
Yes. And listen many times more.
How to pick from so many? I don't want to give spoilers, so I'll just say 'the end'.
No, this the first.
Makes me wide awake and looking for the next one.
I got this after seeing Season 1 of The Expanse series on SyFy. Amazes me how well the show follows the book, although naturally the book has more detail. I feel that I really understand the characters, their relationships, and motivations a LOT better.
I'm off to download the second in the series. Excellent sci-fi and a great listen.
I've never gone through an audio book so quickly..i usually savour a good audio book in my down time and/or on long trips..this one I just couldn't stop listening to.
