Publisher's Summary

James S.A. Corey delivers compelling SF that ranks with the best in the field. In Leviathan Wakes, ice miner Jim Holden is making a haul from the rings of Saturn when he and his crew encounter an abandoned ship, the Scopuli. Uncovering a terrifying secret, Jim bears the weight of impending catastrophe. At the same time, a detective has been hired by well-heeled parents to find a missing girl, and the investigator’s search leads him right to the Scopuli.

    Story
    "I actually look forward to my commute!"

    This is the only series I've ever listened to that makes my 75 minutes each way to and from work seem too short. Superb, well-researched details make humanity's future society and its accompanying technology, political structure, etc., seem not just plausible, but likely. It has a very real feel which makes the well-developed mystery and action all the more spellbinding. This my second time through the series, and it's no less a nail biter. Can't wait to listen to see where the authors take this!

    "Pulled in by the SyFy show. Staying for the detail"

    A great SciFi book to start a series and pull you into the stories of the characters. Definitely worth a listen! I can't wait for the next one!

    Story
    "What an Imagination!"
    Would you try another book from James S. A. Corey and/or Jefferson Mays?

    Probably not


    What could James S. A. Corey have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The language was terrible, F bombs everywhere, this really does nothing to build the characters. The plot seems to lag at times.


    What three words best describe Jefferson Mays’s voice?

    fair to middlin'

    Story
    "Please add a 'playlist'"

    Please add a 'playlist' playback feature especially for all the short stories I love but won't buy because I am a binge entertainment watcher/listener/reader but because I cannot remember the order now I'm fighting with memory problems I cannot enjoy them. When I was 13 in 1978 reading Frank Herbert's "Dune" series my young brain could not just quote from a book but tell you when each book was published and which order to read them. Plus add 3 other others short stories that would help me enjoy the series much more.

    Now I am old and my memory is failing, This app could help do these silly things for need, suggesting short stories to be read when and in what order between the great books but Audible is too lazy. I only turned to "books on tape" and Audible after my memory became so bad I could no longer read a book in print and by the time I turned the page still recall what I'd read! Nothing like I cannot remember how far down a page or into a chapter I'd read.

    If I want any enjoyment from books now I must read them all continuously back to back for hours and hours without stop before I can recall anything of what I've read the day before. Fall asleep and I must start again from the very beginning most time unless I've done that a dozen or more times already!

    Please use all this technology to help the elderly and disabled enjoy reading again!

    Story
    "starts slow but hang in there"

    starts slow but the story gets going it doesn't slow down. pays attention to realism of space makes it feel more real like you could really be there.
