Description

For someone who didn't intend to wreck the solar system's fragile balance of power, Jim Holden did a pretty good job of it. While Earth and Mars have stopped shooting each other, the core alliance is shattered. The outer planets and the Belt are uncertain in their new - possibly temporary - autonomy. 

Then, on one of Jupiter's moons, a single super-soldier attacks, slaughtering soldiers of Earth and Mars indiscriminately and reigniting the war. The race is on to discover whether this is the vanguard of an alien army or if the danger lies closer to home.

Critiques

"This breakneck tale will have readers itching for book three." (Publishers Weekly)

"Great characters, excellent dialogue, memorable fights, freakish experiments, and twisty-turny mysteries... Only an excellent book series can pull them all off, and the Expanse will definitely be added to the shortlist of science fiction tales that manage to do so" (Wired.com)

"Those who enjoyed the first book will enjoy Caliban's War as much, if not more... A crackingly enjoyable read." (SFF World)

Another awesome story

The high intensity of the story continues. Perfect vocal acting and it grips you into the story. A must listen for the Expanse fans!

Great sci-fi at its best

After watching the first two seasons of The Expanse on Netflix I started to listen to the audiobooks and they are way better. Always nice to have a mental image of the characters though.

This book diverts quite a lot from season two but it's not that shooting. Not sure if I should go on and watch the third season though or just settle for Audible.

Story is great and I love how it develops and I will continue to listen to her next book straight away!

Exciting space epic

but I'll draw one star for the annoying accent Avasarala is narrated with. Spare me.

One of the modern greats

The TV show didn't hold much appeal for me but I very much liked one character in it and a man I trust and respect said the character was butchered when compared to the books in a The Expanse debate in a live stream on youtube

First book already showd how much more nuanced the books were, now with the characters first appearance, I know what he meant

Fantastic and pretty much "realistic" book

I really loved this book. It's the closest way to be in space for any of us mortal beings. It's easy to listen or read no doubt.
I highly recommend this book and also really appreciate the quality of the narrator.

A breathtaking sci-fi

I love the way the story is told - the different strings made of the fabric of vivid dreams slowly tangling and coming together at the end of each book. Developing, loveable, very human-like characters - and the way the narrator is making them come alive - with each accent, each way of speaking giving an other layer to them, just adds to the experience. Loved it every bit as much as the first one.

Great book

Really intense and funny. I watched the first two seasons of the expanse and although this includes like half the season it kind of puts things in a better order than the series as much as it feels more natural in its character development. Love the difference in the characters and how interesting human relationships are even on different planets. No real connection to the first book it was a great sequel and standalone, the ending however ... well I’ll leave that to you and hope you enjoy it.

1A

Super Buch. Eine Mischung aus Starship Troopers, 2001: Odysse im Weltraum und Alien. Gefällt mir sogar noch ein bisschen besser wie der Vorgänger. Kann ich jedem der Weltraum-Abenteuer liebt nur wärmstens empfehlen.

SF at its finest

Never been captured so intence by a Novel. The whole story is so tense, so well thought through and compelling written, even in the smallest details of futured living in deep space, you could get in mind, the author had been there... can't wait to get through all books and start over again ;)

Politiker und andere Aliens

Eine gute Fortsetzung . Im letzten Buch haben wir science fiction mit noir gemischt erlebt diesmal gab es einen Polit-Thriller. Wer kein Freund von Cliffhangern ist, der sollte im Epilog aufhören.
Alles in allem eine solide Geschichte.

Tiefere Einblick in die Charaktere, tolle Story!

Welchen drei Worte würden für Sie Caliban's War treffend charakterisieren?

spannend, wendungsreich, emotional

Welcher Moment von Caliban's War ist Ihnen besonders im Gedächtnis geblieben?

Das Beziehungsgespräch zwischen Holden und Naomi, in dem seine charakterliche Wandlung thematisiert wurde.

Wie hat Ihnen Jefferson Mays als Sprecher gefallen? Warum?

Er schafft es, die Stimmen der verschiedenen Chraktere gut abzugrenzen und auch die Emotionen und Gemütszustände toll darzustellen.

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

Es ist empfehlenswert, den ersten Teil der Serie (Leviathan wakes) gelesen zu haben.
Und es ist zu erwarten, dass man nach diesem Buch UNBEDINGT die folgenden Teile hören/lesen möchte.

der Sprecher ist solide

etwas weniger Pathos würde der Geschichte gut tun. und der Hauptcharakter Holden ist echt eine Pflaume. alle anderen Figuren sind ganz okay. ich weiß noch nicht ob ich mir den nächsten Teil anhören werde.

A bit shallow story, but good

A bit shallow characters but over all story is fun to listen even if it sometime hard to follow
