Things changed, and they didn't change back. But sometimes they got better.

It's easy to dismiss religion as bloody, cruel, and tribal...but it isn't religion that's wired that way - it's man himself. At bottom every faith is a form of instruction in common decency...Don't they all teach that to do for others feels better than to do for yourself?
No matter what they looked like, or what they chose to call him, when a group of people called out to God together, they were one. Even if there was no God, or one God, or many gods, it didn't matter. Faith, hope, and love, Paul had written, but the greatest of these is love.
Loved it. The pace and tone were similar to Leviathan Wakes, but the introduction of three new POV characters (two of them female) really added a lot. The character work in Leviathan Wakes was strong, but limited to contrasting Miller to Holden; Prax, Bobbie, and Chrisjen expanded the universe.
Chicago happened slowly, like a migraine.
