Similar review as book 1. Great story, but I think the show does it better. I did appreciate the additional POVs. But, in the show the actors bring so much life to the characters, who fall a little flat in the book.

Expanse series, book 2. Every bit as good as book one, with some great new characters. Just me or does Chrisjen Avasarala remind you of Lady Olenna from Game of Thrones. Loved her character. And the very end! Can't wait to start the next book.

Book 2 in the Expanse series, just as good as the first. Well worth reading if you enjoyed the TV series. Chrisjen Avasarala is a fantastic character 😊 ⭐⭐⭐⭐

SilverShanica I have never seen or heard an old lady drop as many f-bombs as Chrisjen does in this series. It‘s awesome and I only hope I can have her attitude when I‘m old. 3mo

It would not be incorrect to say I inhaled this book. Started last night & finished today, I struggled to put it down to sleep. The plot started quickly & kept going from there, conflicts resolving only for new ones to arise. The characters were fantastic, and there were lots of heartwarming moments. Onto the next one!

The second book in The Expanse series is great combination of action, sci-fi, political intrigue, and family drama. The first book introduced the characters. This book gives them the freedom to be who they are. It‘s wonderful.

Decided to make book two of The Expanse series my next read. Leviathan Wakes was okay, but it wasn't until the final third that I really started to enjoy it. Caliban's War will have to do a better job of wowing me for me to commit to the whole series, but so far I'm encouraged by the larger scope and variety of perspective chapters. I dig a good space opera story, so here's hoping this becomes a series I will want to stick with for the long haul.

I just started tracking how much I buy and how many off my tbr I read this year hoping that it might curb my buying and get me to go through more than I bring in.

The Expanse is such a fun series. I love the characters, especially Amos and Chrisjen. I just adore that little old granny who cusses like a sailor. Hoping to finish this one soon so I can get ahead of the show.

In my excitement for The Expanse starting up again this week I abandoned my reading plan & started Caliban‘s War!
Due to massive amounts of adulting that had to be done today though, I only got to read about 1.5 hours for #25inFive with @Andrew65 . (This brings my total to a little over 14 hours. ) It was better than nothing & Caprica helped.

It‘s #socksunday! I‘m working on client manuscripts today 🤓 Downtime reading (aka the tablet is charging) is Expanse refresher time to get ready for this week‘s premiere.

Don‘t ask me why I tagged book two and took a pic of book three - though logically the new season will include elements of both. Yeah, we‘ll go with that rather than a brain fart 😜

Yeah_I_Read I read Leviathan‘s Wake and then tried to watch the show but I couldn‘t get into it 😬 I just couldn‘t get over how different the show portrayed Miller 2y

I am a sucker for a space opera. These books are so much fun. There are some great new voices in this one that I hope will continue to appear in the story. And of course, I adore the wonderful crew of the Rocinante. I can't wait to dive into the next one!

callielafleur Hmmm maybe I would enjoy the tv series more if I read the books. I might have to give it a try. 2y
shahn77 @callielafleur I have been loving the series but my husband couldn't get into it(he hasn't read the books). I read the first book right before I watched season. I stopped part watching part way through season 2 when the show caught up to the end of book 1 so I could read book 2 before continuing. The book and show so far have been pretty similar but I think reading the book helped me keep track of some things that were happening on the show. 2y

🚀 🚀 🚀 🚀 🚀 These books are so good. They are so long though; I feel like it's been ages since I finished a book. It's been an interesting experience reading this book at the same time that I'm watching season 2 of The Expanse. They are different stories with the same characters and it got confusing. But I've finished the book now so I'm ahead of the series. I love them both!

And the adventure/horror continues! (If only the author could drop the romantic plot 😩) In this book I more or less completely lost interest in the Rocinante crew (Miller was my favorite in book 1, what with Holden mostly just being stupid, and the rest of the crew being cardboard characters), and was much more interested by Bobbie and Avasarala. The interesting and (to me) new monster plot makes up for it though.
