On Earth, a high-level politician struggles to prevent interplanetary war from reigniting.

Excellent read - a real page turner. The differences between the books and the SyFy series are becoming a bit more pronounced, and frankly, the narrative arc of the TV show makes more sense and is overall more satisfying. ( )

Metti mi piace e aggiungimi se ti fa piacere!









Seguito di Leviathan - il risveglio, secondo episodio della saga scifi dei due autori (sotto pseudonimo) da cui è stata tratta la serie tv The Expase che ha così battezzato anche la serie dei libri.
Serie moderna, fresca e completa, ottimente narrata con sfumature di hard scifi, avventura, mistery e distopia (o utopia dipende dai punti di vista) che ha rimandi ad una atmosfera tra Balderunner e Startrek, tra la saga YA e la serie scifi adulto.
Ottimo secondo episodio, scorrevolissimo e piacevolmente farcito qui e là di note umoristiche, spunti di riflessione e camei.
Molti lo hanno definito troppo prolisso e dilungato in alcune parti ma sinceramente non ho trovato una sola pagina che potesse essere omessa o che suggeriva una aggiunta superflua. Tutto scorre nel libro e nella logica della narrazione.
Suggerisco un sottofondo dubstep, vocale e rilassante, per tutta la lettura. ( )

Fantafín vísindasaga sem heldur áfram þar sem þeirri fyrri lauk. Enn virðist vírusinn vera á ferðinni og svo líkur benda til þess að siðlaus fyrirtæki og valdamenn haldi áfram að reyna að þróa ófétið í hernaðartilgangi. Ódrepandi skrýmsli gengur laust á Ganymedu og slátrar öllum hermönnum Mars og Jarðar. Fyrr en varir eru Holden og áhöfn hans send á svæðið enda einu eftirlifendur átakanna á Eros sem var miðdepill fyrri sögu. Næstum eins góð og fyrri bókin en lítið síðri. ( )

"He'd read accounts of extravehicular euphoria, but the experience was unlike anything he'd imagined. He was the eye of God, drinking the light of infinite stars, and he was a speck of dust on a speck of dust, clipped by his mag boots to the body of a ship unthinkably more powerful than himself, and unimportant to the face of the abyss."

I liked this book SO much more than Leviathan Wakes. The fact that it spent most of its time in character development and it still kept me engaged throughout says it all.

In this book we are introduced to another great set of characters - Bobbie, Avasarala and Prax - and follow their POVs. Three completely different people who lived completely different lives and who are incredibly fun to follow.

If you ever looked up the TV series you've probably heard they made adjustments to fit what the series was trying to do. Notably, the stuff that happens inside the Agatha King and in Io is expanded and plays out differently. I don't prefer one over the other because I think both felt right for their respective mediums.

I want to start Abaddon's Gate AS SOON AS POSSIBLE! ( )

I really enjoyed this book. There are 3 or 4 riveting action sequences that play out over multiple chapters and the characters of Bobbi and Avasarala are great.

I like this rating system by ashleytylerjohn of LibraryThing (https://www.librarything.com/profile/ashleytylerjohn) that I have also adopted:
(Note: 5 stars = rare and amazing, 4 = quite good book, 3 = a decent read, 2 = disappointing, 1 = awful, just awful.) ( )
