Not only was this a deeply engaging story and the characters astutely drawn but the narration was absolutely superb! So few readers actually manage to create distinct and authentic voices for each character but this narrator had AMAZING range across gender, nationality, age, etc. You will absolutely not be disappointed by this listening experience.
I really really enjoy The Expanse series. The first 3 books are both extremely good performances and truly great books. The high standards of the first 3 books makes this book comparatively not very good. Clearly the performance detracts so much from this book that is very distracting for the first maybe 1/5 of the book, I managed to get past it because the story is interesting and the series is so good. If you love the series go ahead and get this book but if you were not sold on the earlier books or are thinking about starting the series with this book skip it. I really hope that future books in the series use Jefferson Mays as the narrator.
