Not really an outstanding book but I got this as I missed the movie at the cinema and needed a monster fix..In the end I did enjoy the book but not a classsic and not something I feel compelled to tell anyone about it.

Great fun

I needed a sci-fi fix after finishing the latest Expanse book and was recommended to try the EF series of books.
What a pleasent surprise this was.I loved this 1st book and POV of Bishop.Bishop reminds me of Jack O'Neill from Stargate in parts and we join him on his quite mad trip to the stars..A funny book also, especially with the introduction of the other main character apart from Bishop.
I can see myself going through the entire series The friend who introduced me to EF,is on BOOK 5 and he has gone from 1 to 5 without a pause.
Roll on Book 2

Still an astonishing series.<br />

Easily the best produced SF series I have listened to on here and in my opinion the best written so far.I am still in love with so many characters here

Another hit in this series

From a ice hauler being destroyed to mankind taking the 1st steps into galactic space and the possibility of alien civilisations billions of years old...In 4 books the crew of the Rocinante have experienced all that and this epic just gets better and bigger...I AM such a fan.

To be honest..I am just hooked into the characters especially of Holden,Niaomi,Amos and Alex.Though I think I would like to see more layers to the character of both Amos and Alex.After 3 books they should be more than supporting cast to the Holden/Niaomi Show.That said,I am here for the long journey these 4 are on...I hope they all survive.

Better than book 1

I am now addicted to what happens to Holden,Niaomi,Amos and Alex..This is not just a crew they are family.
The most enjoyable space yarn I have read/listened to for some time.
I will be getting the other books in the series and if any of the main cast are killed off,I will be gutted.
Special shout out to the narrator,who's name I forgot at the time of writing this but he has these characters down to a tee..Love Christeen's constant foul mouth. A lot to love in book 2 and makes me want to rewatch the tv show..Book 3,here I come.

Loved this and the 2 previous books in the series.I learnt a little bit more about the Nazis when I thought there was nothing new.These 3 books should be made into a documentary series akin to the old World at War but in 3 parts covering each book.I will listen again to all 3 aometime soon

This is how audio books should be

This how a audiobook should sound like if using multiple voice actors to do the multiple characters...A Song of Ice and Fire series should take note.
I had heard about this book from friends and the story and performances took me on a journey with Shadow . it had my imagination going as I listened walking to and from work and hope somewhere down the line we do here from Shadow again.
Check out the trailers for the forthcoming TV show based on the book . I hope they do it justice.

A Game of Thrones (Part Two) cover art

I have to say,i discovered this world after getting into the tv show.I have various books to read but find audiobooks a more convenient way of getting through them.This Game of Thrones has been the best audio book experience...ever!!!!.



Just listening to the words written by Mr Martin is wonderous,and to have them,and the characters enhanced and brought to life by the amazing Roy Dotrice,made me listen to chapters again...



I actually enjoyed this better than the tv show..and that was fantastic in its own right..Glad to see Roy Dotrice is onboard for all the other books in the tremendous series.



I cannot praise this enough..it is that good!

Listen,enjoy and immerse yourself into this epic world.
