Jeffersonv Mays does an exemplary job. All the main characters have grown so much since The Expanse. Naomi is actually likable, now! I can't wait to find out how it all ends.

so much better than Nexus Uprising

The story and narration are infinitely better than Uprising. While I enjoyed Fryda as Ryder, she just couldn't work Uprising into anything beyond meh. Polish a turd and it's still a turd. This story actually made sense.

wow....just....wow

that's alot of household names that should have been thrown in jail, or executed. In the beginning I was somewhat rooting for Nixon . As more of his deeds were unearthed, the bastard showed his true self. Never underestimate what someone will do to win an election.

What would the US look like if JFK and RFK and MLK and Malcolm X were never assassinated....

decent performance, plotline is.... ugh. spoilers.

this is quite possibly the worst Dan Brown novel out there. in the first two hours of this novel I'm fairly certain he used the phrase scientific discovery about 15 dozen times. We get that you're trying to delay giving us the plot decide, but find a new way of doing it. The writing style is close to Trump level.
While I enjoy the odd far fetched sci fi here and there and your near future type of stuff, and I do realize that this was written 15 years ago, the whole idea that NASA is the bane of all existence and that if you slash its budget in half it'll solve all the education problems in America.... Is beyond Trump absurd. Beyond Newt Gingrich wanting a base on the Moon by the year 2020. I understand this is fiction but I like believable fiction, I like it when the author doesn't treat the reader as a freaking idiot. Adding seven and a half billion dollars to the education budget by reducing the NASA budget by the same amount is going to solve all your problems? Good f****** luck. not once was the defense budget brought up and I believe that at the time that this was written that defense budget was 650 billion dollars. And it isn't audited at all. Not one goddamn mention of that bloated budget.
I get that the average voter isn't nearly as informed as we would like them to be, but the idea of using NASA as a scapegoat in this regard and that it's successful in getting the GOP nomination?
Clive cussler's novel regarding a hidden secret contract between the British and the United States where in Canada is actually the property of the United States is more believable than this bullshit.
as stated earlier, I get that this is fiction. But the National Enquirer is more realistic than this. Don't waste your credit on this and especially don't waste your money on this.

that was alot better than I thought it would be

WHEEEEAAAAAAATTTTOOOONNNN!
he actually did a pretty damn good job narrating. the 80s nostalgia was a little much, but only crap this was a great book, and made great by Wil's passion and knowledge. It helps when the narrator is into the content he's reading.

good listen

i loved Wolff as Sarah Ryder. not so much as the whole cast. She didn't really change tone or volume throughout the novel. she's very pleasant to listen to though. But, if only the story had a more thorough editing. The reason for the uprising was.....ugh. Stupid, bitchy crew. "Why are you rationing us? Why do you want us to go back into stasis? why is there no food?? it's all the leadership's fault! kill everyone rawr!"

I hate that plotline. I expected more, BioWare.

glad they put the story back on track

Weird alien shit. that's what got me into this series and this novel delivers. As much as I liked books 5-6, they took a bit of a detour from what made this series so enticing. I understood the necessity of the Free Navy, but it felt a little too much like filler. Our patience, however, has been rewarded.
