    Set on both sides of the Atlantic, Zadie Smith's third novel is a brilliant analysis of family life, the institution of marriage, intersections of the personal and political, and an honest look at people's deceptions. It is also, as you might expect, very funny indeed.

    Overall

    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.

    An empty apartment, a missing family, that's creepy. But this is like finding a military base with no one on it. Fighters and tanks idling on the runway with no drivers. This is bad juju. Something wrong happened here. What you should do is tell everyone to leave. The gates have opened the way to a thousand new worlds and the rush to colonize has begun. Settlers looking for a new life stream out from humanity's home planets. Ilus, the first human colony on this vast new frontier, is being born in blood and fire.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    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.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Erik Davies’s performances?

    No
