I read all of the expanse books like crack and the show is still differing enough to be fun. Since I don't have the other perspective I'm biased to suggest just reading all of the books now. I enjoyed all of the additional depth they added.
I'm at the point of no return right now - a little more than midway through the second book. They just spaced the monster from the Roci and Bobbi and the old Indian lady (not even going to try to remember how to spell that name) are headed out into space, so other than the yacht escape, I'm pretty much at the end of Season 2 now. I assume it's only a matter of time before the principals all meet up.

I'm reading through these at a faster pace than I did the GOT books, and enjoying them more. These guys are much better writers than Martin.

Also, I really like the old Indian lady - she reminds me of a female version of one of my old bosses. He was a nasty, foul-mouthed old ****, too, but in retrospect the best boss I ever had. Prax is starting to grate on my nerves a bit, though. Hope he either grows a pair soon or gets whacked.
