  1. 60
    The Martian por Andy Weir (electronicmemory)
    electronicmemory: Andy Weir and James S. A. Corey met at a book signing and agreed that The Expanse series and The Martian are set in the same time-line. So, if you're a fan of The Martian and want to find out what happened after Mars was colonized, read Leviathan Wakes. If you're a fan of The Expanse series, and want to read about the very first Martian colonist, read The Martian. For proof, check a 3 Oct 2015 tweet by @JamesSACorey for confirmation. One of The Expanse books also references a Martian ship named the 'Mark Watney'.… (mais)

Compelling characters in a hoped to be future in space. not so different than what we have dreamt of. On a macro scale Earth , Mars and the Belt compete economically for dominance. Mean while on a micro scale seemly random events force a an interplanetary war and the discovery of an alien virus seek to change the fate of humanity. ( )

Very compelling book with plausible futuristic technology (no artificial gravity! no transporters! no FLT! no instant long-distance communication!) I'd feared that this book would be a little too heavy on the politics (BORING), but that was kept to a tolerable level by the action and believable characters.
So I guess I'll be reading a space series for a bit. ok! ( )

This book had been on my radar for awhile. Then I started watching The Expanse, and it was awesome, but I didn't realize until later that the show was based on this book. That got me to finally read it, and glad I did. It was totally worthwhile. Well-written, vivid, cool/interesting/horrific shit happens. Plot was pleasingly intricate, and the way it wrapped up was rather ingenious - unexpected, yet seemed totally inevitable after the fact. And very solid characterizations, something which is a distinct rarity in sci-fi novels. Sign me up for more of both the show and subsequent books in this series. ( )

Hmmm... not really. Obviously it interested me enough to keep me reading for more than 500 pages, though that may have just been the sunk cost fallacy at work. I feel a little tricked by the fact that the opening of the book, especially the prologue, was much better than any other part.

By the time I got to the end I was pretty peeved, I have to say. It seemed like the authors were going for an epic complex political drama with tense relationships between different factions, but ultimately it kind of just boiled down to one thing happening and one force behind it. A little Star Wars prequels-esque. Like you get to the end and you thing: "wait, why did that all happen again? Why were they doing that?"

The main characters, Miller and Holden, were obviously supposed to be very different ideologically and their perspective chapters were even written by different people, but the section of the book where they were working together felt like one long muddle, instead of a back-and-forth between two appreciably different mentalities. Thinking back on one major incident where the two had differing opinions Miller shooting Anthony Dresden and Holden being pissed about it I could easily see it having been written so that they did the opposite and their positions were reversed.

Okay, and then speaking of characters, of course there were the women. Poor Julie, who couldn't escape the obsession of the much older man tasked with kidnapping/saving her even by dying in the grossest and scariest way possible (this is portrayed as a beautifully and fulfilling one-sided relationship for Miller, of course!). Poor Naomi, whose proclaimed competency in engineering and XO-ing is never particularly plot-relevant, at least not as much as the constant talk about how at least two of her three male crewmates would like to have sex with her and then one does (what a great will-they-won't-they!). A dead girlfriend (one scene), an ex-wife (no scenes), and two real bitches at work pretty much round out the female cast.

Oh and what is up with Holden mentioning he was raised by a cool family co-op of five dads and three moms, and then everyone else in the solar system is never even assumed to be anything but straight? What's going on here, society-wise?

Anyway, if you like Firefly you'll probably like this lol ( )

Having seen the Netflix series 1-2 first, the plot was known but the book managed to fit in so much more content. Fascinating Science Fiction set in a perhaps not too far future, while the human race have spread through out the Solar System. Maybe the first book does not give a good picture of what the Belters really are and why they differ. Same can be said about the Martians who just seem exist to be annoyed by the Earthers, while trying to terraform their planet simultaneously. But much of this will develop through the series. ( )
