OK that's it! I don't think I can bring myself to read another of these even if it is handed to me for free. I just can't take anymore scientific ineptitude. It's been there from book one where conservation of angular momentum is completely ignored but this book has so many guns being fired in vacu...

Series OCD: sometimes I has it, sometimes I don’t. Despite the success of the first book, Leviathan Wakes (my review), after the disappointing sequel Caliban’s War (my review), I was all set to walk away from Corey and The Expanse series until friends suggested the final book was a capstone worth re...

I do not think I have read a book series before which have gone from really great to really disappointing in one go like this one just did. There is nothing wrong with the writing itself. It is as good as before. It is the content, the story itself, which is simply disappointing as far as I am conce...

I feel like I just read 400 pages waiting for the story to start, and then it ended. Not that it wasn't a good book, but it just felt kind of...

All of the implicit promises made to me as a reader have been fulfilled and titillated and stoked to a nice fine fire. I wanted something with huge scope, and while I kept thinking about Iain M. Banks Culture or more to the point, Brin's Uplift War, or even Pohl's Gateway series, I was thoroughly im...

This series just keeps getting better and better. For the third time we sail out on the good ship Rocinante and its captain, Jim Holden, and crew. As we've come to expect from Holden and friends, he's right in the middle of whatever's going on – if not actually causing it/making it worse. Although t...

Very disappointing final volume after the momentum built up in he second book. I found the science-fictional payoff mundane when I had been expecting majestic. The action felt monotonous and drawn-out, and I failed to make any emotional connection with two of the three new viewpoint characters (Anna...

Ever since I read Leviathan Wakes, I've become a fan and follower of the team behind the pseudonym James S.A. Corey -- authors Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck. The Expanse series is the most fun I've had with a space opera in a long time, and from what I heard there may be more novels and short stories...
