I really liked the universe Corey created. It has huge potential.
Whenever any story has unpredictability, that is what i like best. I never knew what direction the story would go.
Mays was ok, but I wasnt as engrossed as I have been with other narrators.
I am writing this review several months after finishing the book. I have mixed feelings of my memories about it. On one hand I remember many exciting scenes and characters. I loved the universe and the politics of the universe. The more I think back on all the developments in the story , the more I want to say how amazing this book was. However, I remember at the time it felt a little bit like it was a chore to get through the book. Its very possible that I was just overly anticipating the book i was going to listen to next. But that just sticks in the back of my mind somehow. I have the 2nd book of the series in my wishlist now, but i'm extremely torn as to whether or not I want to continue. I probably will
I loved it, It is exactly what I was looking for. A true SciFi novel. There is science, space, twists and turns, full set of unique well developed characters, and great writing style. I'll definitely read the next one in the series.
Say something about yourself!
This story had the right mix of background information, character development, and action. The characters have believable, complex personalities but they are not overdone to the point of being tedious. The action keeps you wanting more all the way through. The science of the book is much more like what we can really expect in future space travel, inertia and relativity still apply.
I really enjoyed listening to Leviathan Awakes, and I am now listening to Caliban's War. I hope there will be more to the Expanse Series.
The characters grew on me subtly and over time. Much like getting to know people over the course of time, I was unaware that I had come to care for them and when I realized that it had happened I recognized how well crafted the story was.
Mr. Mays' is a versatile voice actor how brought distinctive personality to each character and really enhanced the experience overall.
Satisfied Audible listener since 2002. I mostly listen to Sci-fi and anything by Stephen King.
Great story, intrigued as to see what happens next because all this does is set up a whole series of sequels which I can't wait to read. I liked the two main charectures found some of the motivations and effects of actions a little overblown. But still rich hard sci-fi space opera, I want more.
This book grabbed me from the first and didn't let go. It was so good I immediately got the next in the series. My only regret was that the third book was not out yet. The characters are engaging and the narrator is excellent.
Entertaining, well written, well narrated.
Perfect sci fi adventure, characters developed and are realistic. not too much war.
I enjoy a good old-fashioned space opera and this book kept me listening. The characters are well-drawn and there's plenty of action. The narration is excellent. I didn't realize when I bought this book that it had been nominated for the Hugo award, so I was pleasantly surprised to find that I had accidentally stumbled on such a good book.
I would not know because i did not read it but i did enjoy the narration.
I dont want to give anything away but i loved the casino part.
I have not read any other of his books but i rather enjoyed him.
Im not a writer but it should def be made into a movie!!!!!
listen to me!!!!!
Great space opera! All the stars for a stage. Great men and tough sexy gals to act. And, of course, monarchs (sort of) to behold the swelling scenes. Add lumbering space zombies and, well, words begin to fail. This book contains virtually all the major tropes of the best sci-fi traditions and a few new ones. Well written and cleverly conceived and superbly narrated, it swept me along like the best wave of the day. Can't wait for its successor.
