Wow I loved this

I could not put it down. This is the best sci fi I have read in a long time. I cannot wait to read the next one.

Awesome read, hard sci-fi at its best

Couldn’t put it down. Currently cruising through the sequels. I love hard science fiction, my favorite novel ever is Ender’s Game and in my opinion the expanse is on par with that. My only complaint is it legitimately makes it hard to go back and enjoy softer science fiction that doesn’t feel nearly as real

Hmmmm. Can you penalize a sci-fi novel for being too easy?

This novel is enjoyable, but in the end there lacks any real challenge. The pacing, plot, characters, mysteries, etc are well done. Even expertly crafted at times. But nothing about this story seems to really stretch beyond sci-fi archives. Nothing jumps out as unique.

So, while it’s a good book, and well written, I think it fails to shake things up enough. It leaves you with a “been there, read that” feeling.
