“FINALLY” some background on what actual life and the people on Mars are like. Sadly needed. We also get to see “Gunny” Bobbi Draper’s shaming for saving the world.
SF gold… I like the realism; it seems much like space exploration would be in our near future and with realistic technology…life is tenuous out there and can disappear with a pinprick hole in the wrong place. Humanity can’t get past its tribalism and pettiness.
Much as I liked this (and I really do), I’m glad that I’ve now reached the point where I don’t already know the plot from the very good EXPANSE TV series. I’m looking forward to reading first and watching afterwards.
Book 2 is just as good as the first.
My only regret is that I didn’t read the books before the TV series [The Expanse], which is also very, very good.
Lots of wisdom here:
