Barry (boprawira) | 1182 comments Started today. End of Ch 13.

Well a slightly different format this time : we know who’s the supposed villain is right from the start. I hope the villain continues to be ruthless and manipulative.

I've started this one, but I'm not that far in yet.


Gareth Lee | 24 comments I haven’t got off to flying start I’m afraid. I’m only on chapter 2.


Gareth Lee | 24 comments Anna is my new fave character, but given the possible alternatives included Melba, there wasn’t a lot of competition. The other two characters are lets say interesting.

Also really enjoying all the sciency stuff. I usually have a slight problem with wormhole technology because while they are theoretically possible, the technological issues you would need to solve to create one are so great that the idea that humans would develop them in the next few centuries seems a bit far fetched but having a superadvanced alien species that could be millions of years more technologically advanced than us create it seems like clever way to get around that.

So far it's been a more gripping read than the second book, IMO. Better villain(s) so far. Or at the very least we've got more povs from the villain(s) than the previous two books.


Gareth Lee | 24 comments You’re racing through the chapters now, Barry. I thought I had read quite a lot in the last couple of days but I’m only at the end of Chapter 20.

I made this my commute book and it's the worst! So much is going on and I keep starting and stopping at ridiculous places lol. Plus I'm getting through it sooo slowly. I'm also forgetting to share my thoughts and what points I really wanted to make...

I'm on chapter 26, thoughts:

Barry (boprawira) | 1182 comments I’m done. A couple of days ago actually.

I think action-wise, this is the most action-packed so far. I’ve mentioned one major point with regard to (view spoiler) that are less than believable to me. Other than that this is a pretty good one. Very enjoyable, though, I miss Avasarala and Bobbie.

Melba isn't my favorite character. She's just not ringing true to me. I also miss the Ava/Bobbie combo!

So I finished. Definitely enjoyed this one. Melba was an interesting character, and Bull was an impressive individual in this installment. I really enjoyed all of the new characters.

Re Cortez
I was reminded of a phrase, not sure where I heard it, that says the most dangerous man is the man who has no doubt that what he's doing is ..."


Cortez was necessary, but sooo annoying. I kept wanting him to get shot in the leg.


Gareth Lee | 24 comments I finished yesterday.

Choko (chokog) | 7290 comments OMG! Clarissa... Something is really wrong with this girl... I am only about a third in, and I strongly dislike her at this point. I like Pastor Anna though... And I can't even begin to fathom the political fallout from Clarrisa's actions...
