James S.A. Corey’s best-selling hit Leviathan Wakes earned Hugo and Locus Award nominations. In Caliban’s War, the second chapter of Corey’s Expanse series, a desperate Earth politician works tirelessly to prevent war from reigniting. Meanwhile, upheaval takes root on Venus and Ganymede. And amidst this tumult, James Holden and his crew on the Rocinante are charged with the impossible task of saving humanity from a terrifying fate.

    I prefer 3rd person point-of-view, and books with fewer than 500 pages.

    "Better than TV series"

    Excellent narration. Very good story, even though the protomolecule is sooooo amazing that it feels more like magic than science. In my opinion, the books are better than the Sci-Fy channel television series, even though we enjoy watching it. The characters are more likable and believable in the books. The television series takes liberties with James Holden and Naomi Nagata, in particular.

    "Decent"

    It's an entertaining story if you can get past the one-dimensional characters. It balances out decently.

    "Better than the 1st"

    It seems to me the writing has only improved. I don't know how people write cooperatively but they do it.

    "Solid but more politics than I care for"

    I'd love more Sci-Fi details about life in the future vs the heavy focus on politics and posturing in between quick battles. Good overall and I'll move on to the next one in the series.

    "Better than Leviathan Wakes"

    Leviathan Wakes was ok so I decided to push through and listen to Caliban's War. This book was amazing. Sucked me in and had me invested in the characters and on the edge of my seat.

    And the last couple of lines at the end. SHIVERS! Can't wait to listen to the next book

    Story
    "Slow."

    I had hard time with this one. I felt like the author was trying to develop the characters by describing everything they were doing from minute to minute. So, it got a little boring at times, but maybe it has more to do with the story just unfolding too slowly. After all was said and done, I just didn't feel like enough happened. I'm tired of this series. I won't continue.

    "A very well spun sci-fi novel"
    Would you listen to Caliban's War again? Why?

    The characters are very copmpelling


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Caliban's War?

    I was waiting for the Chrisjen Avasarola chapters. She is a very interesting and compelling character.


    What about Jefferson Mays’s performance did you like?

    The performance is well narrated

    "Not as good as expected"

    This story is mostly just tropes and cliches. Good performance though, and despite the lackluster story, it's still a good time passer because the subject matter is interesting.
