    Ensam på Mars av Andy Weir (electronicmemory)
    electronicmemory: Andy Weir and James S. A. Corey met at a book signing and agreed that The Expanse series and The Martian are set in the same time-line. So, if you're a fan of The Martian and want to find out what happened after Mars was colonized, read Leviathan Wakes. If you're a fan of The Expanse series, and want to read about the very first Martian colonist, read The Martian. For proof, check a 3 Oct 2015 tweet by @JamesSACorey for confirmation. One of The Expanse books also references a Martian ship named the 'Mark Watney'.… (mer)

This book is a ride, and if the rest of the series follows suit, I can see why it’s been so popular.

I had been looking forward to this book and series for a while… and so I did my best not to find out anything about the story or setting beforehand.

I had a vague sense this would be gritty, realistic sci fi. And that there was a division between those that live on Earth and Mars and those that live beyond… but that’s it.

All that is there, but packed inside is a noir detective story, a horror story, a strange Star-Trek-Star-Wars Firefly mix, (without the whimsy) and a plot that never lets you settle into a status quo for it’s characters. And to never feel as though any one particular character is safe from danger.

That last point is probably the thing I was most impressed by. Things constantly change for all the characters and it keeps you very engaged. The ‘what is going to happen next’ drive is not unlike the Sun’s gravity well, it keeps tugging you throughout the whole story no matter what.

The multiple plots converge in satisfying ways that also don’t feel telegraphed, which is particularly difficult to execute. The characters interact naturally to their extreme situations which is also part of the appeal; you grow to care about these characters and so you’re invested in their reactions to the world and to each other.

The Miller (detective) story finds a way to mix idealism and justice into a depressing and beaten-down character, and while living inside the detective mold, things are just different enough, between the setting and the plot, that it avoids feeling like we’re just watching a detective trope play out.

The Holden (ship captain) story really does mix the scoundrel/working class hero vibe of Star Wars and Firefly and the idealism of Star Trek… which again needs to be commended as that idealism could have seemed naive. Instead it comes across as the only response that Holden is capable of in a world of grey choices… which is frankly inspiring.

I’ve been hankering for (and writing) some ‘hard’ sci-fi where I try to keep the science as authentic as possible. I’ll admit I was looking for that here, and though they make some solid gestures in that direction, it also doesn’t hold onto it too tight. At first I felt disappointed, but it’s not a failing of the book; it’s not trying to get the science right and failing. It’s pretty clear that their tone demands an element of realism, but only an element. What’s mixed in there is horror and space-opera as well, and those demands flex against pure scientific modes.

The only quibbles I have with the book are around rhythm and and it’s prose. A few times the writing will reach for a moment of pathos or drama in it’s description in ways that the rest of the story and writing can’t match, so they don’t land. And the rhythm of it’s plot, driving forward as it is, means that some of the major moments pass by a little too quickly, including the end. Considering how much time we’ve spent with these characters (it’s a long book), I would have appreciated at certain moments, including the end, a chance for both the characters and readers to catch their breath and take in everything that’s happened up to that point.

Did this as a bit of a read along with Season 1 of the TV show on Amazon Prime.

It’s a great story and I’m surprised to find that little, if anything, was left out of the show. If anything there was more about the political intrigue on the show — I wonder if that was coming from future books?

I’m a little torn about wanting to just zoom ahead with the show or if I want to read the books first because they are quite long and it might be better use of my entertainment time to just watch the show and read other books. (But we all know that I’m going to read the books either way.)

I love the crew of the Roci and can’t wait to find out what happens next. ( )

I'm somewhat torn concerning this novel. Although I 4-star enjoyed it at first, after a while it felt like it was longer than necessary. Yet I can't think of anything that could have been cut out or abbreviated much in order to shorten it. Ultimately, I was simply relieved to have finished it. ( )

After a few little novellas it's been a joy to get into some real long distance reading: it's a rather large book!

Great characters, superbly well written, non stop action, excellent dialogue (both internal and external); i really can't fault this book.

Do remember to have a little break during this to read The Last Flight of the Cassandra.

And now i have the second huge tome, Caliban's War, to dive straight into. ( )

Enjoyable mix of SF and mystery. Great action scenes, interesting characters. I liked the political elements, as the various great powers of the solar system gradually got drawn into the conflict. ( )
