I had already seen season one of the expanse, and that made the book so much better for me. I had all these questions in my head from the show, and they all got answered in the book. I'm on to the second book now!
I had trouble getting into the story but that was mostly because of the narrator who was not do much to separate the character voices. even some of the more tense moments barely had much emotion. it got better as it went though. excited for the next book.
Going from fiction to horror then fantasy I now find myself at an interesting junction. Having pulled away from "ordinary fiction " to the ultimate sci-fi geek. Well written with every emotion intact, the thought of reading ordinary after this book is absurd. Onto book two! Well done!
Super impressed with this book. wasn't sure what to expect. Had been watching the SyFy show, the Expanse, and the experience was awesome to read the book and watch the show. Really enjoyed the differences :-)
I highly recommend this story, and I can't wait to devour the nearly 100 hours remaining in this series!
I loved this book and found myself completely immersed in Holden's and Miller's journeys, which is something I haven't experienced in a few years. Part of this was from the excellent story telling on behalf of the writers. Another part is owed to the characters. The narration by Jefferson Mays really held my attention and helped make this an even better experience. get this, and maybe watch SyFy show along with it.
Narration was really good. Enjoyed this all the way through. There we're some slow points but overall an engaging story. Looking forward to the next book in the series.
Much better than the series "Expanse" which itself is good. The back and forth perspective was a bit difficult at times to follow. Also the science in this science fiction is a bit off if I recall my college physics.
Fantastic story, well performed, and great start to this intricate sci fi masterpiece! Massive props go out to James S A Corey for his work and Jefferson Mays for roping me in.
