Persepolis Rising (The Expanse #7) Reviews

    Once you get seven books deep into a series it gets really tricky to review because you can?t talk about even the basic story set-up without spoiling stuff for anyone who hasn?t read the previous books. Since I?m really trying to encourage any sci-fi fan to check out The Expanse ...

    When I read the previous six novels in the series, it only took less than three days for each. They were, mostly, page-turning, full-action, high-emotion, roller coaster rides. Persepolis Rising is different. It is more somber, thoughtful. The kickass actions, tight plotting and tw...

    A fun thing to do with this series is to predict the way the story will go based on the piece of mythology, history or religion featured in each title. Another fun thing to do is realize how wrong you were in your predictions, after the book has had its way with you. It?s still fu...

    Persepolis Rising is the 7th book in The Expanse series written by James S.A. Corey. The series has been adapted into a high-quality television series that airs on SyFy, but unlike other well-known speculative fiction adaptations (like Game of Thrones and American Gods) I think that in...

    I think this is my favorite of the series so far. When I realized it was a 30 year time jump forward, I thought I would hate it (I didn't want to read about old Holden and crew), but it was necessary to the story (and everyone is still bad ass). Finally big things start to happen! I re...

    With Persepolis Rising, The Expanse performs a thirty year time jump into the future, revealing new ideas, new plot points and an interesting world building development. Sadly, I wasn't enamoured with the first half or so, but the story picks up towards the end becomes incredibly te...

    If you haven?t read The Expanse novels before reading this review, STOP. What are you doing? Go read the other novels because you will NOT be disappointed. The Expanse is a space opera full of political intrigue, action, well-developed characters, and world building like you woul...

    I think I like this more than most of the other Expanse books, and that's saying a lot. I actually loved them all. That being said, OMG I can't believe all the changes we get thrown into! The whole team is together, all my favorite (living) characters from the other books together o...

    Maybe not quite perfect, but close enough! Ask some big questions about the nature of history, governance and permanency in human institutions. I think the authors are (at this point) arguing for constant change in those areas, but the reassuring importance of interpersonal relationshi...

    5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum https://bibliosanctum.com/2017/12/19/... What do you do when your epic space opera series is seven books in, you?ve already put your readers through some of the most intense storylines they can imagine, and now you need to do something even bigger...

    Others have said it and I will say it: Persepolis Rising is the best book of the series. But for me is also the best novel that I?ve read in 2017. The level of writing craftsmanship that this book radiates is incredible. From the prologue to the epilogue, every chapter is a perfect r...

    4.5 stars rounded up because I really love this series. About 30 years have passed since the end of the last book. That made me sad because I feel like I missed out on a good portion of the lives of some of my favorite characters. Story-wise it made sense, but still.... It is quite ...

    It is tough enough to write a series to a seventh book let alone writing a good seventh book. And after the amazing climax of Babylon's Ashes I really had no idea where the duo of James S.A. Corey would take the story. Turns out they decided to boldly go thirty years into the future...

    It's thirty years since the events of Abaddon's Gate and somewhere around fifteen or twenty since Babylon's Ashes. The future that Avasarala had predicted at the end of that book has come to pass and the Rocciante, though now an aging relic, still has a role to play. But in the recover...

    "Your empire's hands look a lot cleaner when you get to dictate where history begins, and what parts of it count." This one changes things. I assumed that the pace was going to quicken, since Persepolis Rising is moving us into the final three Expanse novels, but I am in awe at how ...

    Executive Summary: After a slow start it finished really strong but wasn't quite as enjoyable as the last two were for me. 4.5 Stars. Audiobook: Jefferson Mays once again does a good job. He does a few voices, but mostly he's just a solid narrator who is easy to understand and reads...

    ?Because we?re human, and humans are mean, independent monkeys that reached their greatness by killing every other species of hominid that looked at us funny.? It took me a while to get into this new instalment of the Expanse (mostly real life rearing its ugly head) but once ...

    The only thing I hated about Persepolis Rising is how long it?s going to make me wait for the next book. I always come away from an Expanse novel reeling. Sometimes from massive events, but often just from the profound depth of character. This series continues to illustrate what i...

    I admit that I went into Persepolis Rising thinking that this was the last book in The Expanse series. I continued to think that way until about 2/3?s of the way through, when I realized that there was still too much plot to effectively be resolved in the remaining pages. Ultimately ...

    There's not much to say about this book, really. It's number 7 in the series, and by this moment most (everyone, actually?) of the readers already know what to expect and who's who and all those twists and little secrets that makes the plot tick and so on and on and on. So, yeah, P...

    The duo behind James S.A. Corey is back at full steam with this one! My first reaction to finding out we were something like thirty years in the now was one big NOOOOOCHANGEBADCHANGEBAD, but once through the first few chapters, all was ok. The Laconians have come back with some really ...

    Kada god ?ovek pomisli da je skapirao kako ?e se dalje razvijati ovaj serijal gospoda pisci skrenu naglio ulevo u ne?to sasvim druga?ije. Samim tim knjiga je neizvesnija i mnogo zabavnija. Likove koje volimo su jo? tu, ali vreme je u?inilo svoje tako da je svako opet druga?ij...

    Wow. (expletive)! Ten-stars. The best of the series. What a fabulous book. Powerful, spare, poignant, full of hard sci-fi at a blistering pace. More than any other Expanse book, the authors here investigate deep and dangerous human motivations, and the nature of the Roci as a family...

    Storyline: 3/5 Characters: 3/5 Writing Style: 3/5 World: 1/5 Corey gambled. Given the popularity of the series and the television adaptation, I hadn't expected them to take any risks. Granted, it was nothing radical, but starting with the whole "x years later" segue has tradeoffs...
