The protomolecyle soup thickens, and the new rings may open the universe for human expansion. My mind flashes to Pohl's Heechee saga for a second, and there are some same elements here - travel to distant worlds while wondering what happened to those who built it all and why they're hiding. Otherwise this is more Star Wars -style adventure. ( )

Wow. This series just gets better and better with each successive installment.

This one not only ratcheted up the action, but also managed to open up the entire universe of the Expanse.

I'm not going to comment on anything specifically, or spoil anything, other than to say, if you aren't reading this series, really, you're missing out on something really fun and entertaining. ( )

I enjoyed this book , obviously since I read over 500 pages of it in a week , but it wasn't as fun as the previous two. I thought we got bogged down in too many unnecessary details and descriptions. Naomi landed with the grace of someone born in zero g. Again. The good guys waited for the bad guys to shoot them. Now in a different place. This time with different guns. Nice to have the point of view characters change again but I miss Bobbie. I would have liked more sciencey goodness than theology. ( )

I continue to be massively in love with this series. With all the main crew, with where they end up, with the mystery of Miller, with the shadows and gates. With the constant flux of politics, and the shoutouts to favorite characters who aren't main characters for this book. I have to admit I really love the newly introduced characters for this one.

I did not expect to love Anna as much as I did -- and I had wanted them to delve deeper into expanding view points and interfaith acceptance/fear/growth through her -- but I still absolutely loved her. In Melba/Carissa, I expected to feel very little pity, and often I did feel very little pity, due to the insanity and the choice of several actions she made, but I found myself coming around by the end, too. By the idea that sometimes saving the world break other worlds entirely. Bull just made me happy, as a continuation of showing us people in the different military forces in this world, with their multiple happenstances and complicated loyalties/choices.

I am still on track with reading this series forever and ever and ever, and I can't wait for the Syfy show to start already. ( )

Holden was starting to feel like they were all monkeys playing with a microwave. Push a button, a light comes on inside, so it’s a light. Push a different button and stick your hand inside, it burns you, so it’s a weapon. Learn to open and close the door, it’s a place to hide things. Never grasping what it actually did, and maybe not even having the framework necessary to figure it out. No monkey ever reheated a frozen burrito.

In the first book, the protomolecule made zombies. In the second, it made a Venuscomputer and super soldiers. This time around? A wormhole gate to transit hub in what looks to be a pocket universe where the laws of physics are... flexible.

Despite having the most fantastic scifi setting of the series thus far, Abaddon's Gate actually feels like it's more about the people and politics of the Expanse than anything else. It's an interesting divergence from the balance of the first two books, but I think it works.

Characterwise, Holden and crew is back (of course) and continues to see visions of Miller. That's what gets him trouble in the first place.

“If it’s the protomolecule wearing a Miller suit, I think that’s actually creepier.”

We also get a few more human moments and conflict between them, which is good to see them grow and change while everything goes mad around them.

Other than that, we don't get Bobbie or Avasarala which is a bummer. I really liked both of them. Instead, we get overly righteous pastor Anna (who I actually liked) and another Mao (who is a fairly two dimensional baddie throughout the book). Not quite as great as the one off characters we've seen before but so it goes.

Worldbuildingwise, the pocket universe is fascinating. Basically, as a defense system, it can lower the absolute speed objects can move through the bubble, including quickly decelerating ships that are moving too fast. One might imagine that slowing down from normal spacecraft speeds to something far slower might not go well for those inside the ship... It's a bit weird from a physics perspective, but it works from a storytelling perspective.

Finally, the ending. That's going to be a huge change for the Expanse universe. When I started out, I wouldn't have expected such a shift, but now I"m looking forward to it. Onward!







Random side note:

Given that I'm listening to Discworld while reading this:

He had a dusting of short white hair and opaque black glasses. His teeth were yellowed like old ivory, and his smile was gentle and humane. According to the paperwork, his name was Elio Casti, but for some reason the documentary team all called him Cohen.

Heh. ( )
