I liked the TV adaptation of this book series – The Expanse.
So downloaded the first book.
It’s an ambitious series with some very compelling characters:
Ethical James “Jim” Holden, the reluctant ship captain.
Naomi Nagata, a Belter, his much smarter partner.
Gruff, straight talking engineer Amos Burton.
Best of all is washed up Belter detective Josephus “Joe” Miller.
The plot is excellent. But I found the TV series better than the book. The story telling is more compelling. More direct.
I feel the same way about Game of Thrones. The TV shows are better than the books.
