I started reading the books recently as I am too impatient to wait for the rest of the series, it is fascinating to read the level of detail that is missed in the TV series although the series does follow the book(s I have just started the 2nd book) very closely.
Corey is very readable, one of the better SF books I have read recently.

They are indeed - but the TV series tells the same story but with bits of later books (particularly characters like Chrisjen Avasarala) being put in earlier to make it work more seamlessly. I guess the scriptwriters had the advantage of knowing where it was all going before they started writing which Corey didn't.
That they were both producers for the TV series help keep the "vision" ontrack, I think.
Yes, the TV missed out a lot - the third book in particular was very "rushed through" by the TV series, possibly because they knew they were under threat of cancelation.
Damn good SF books and TV though.

I am pretty sure the 'Corey' entity was/is two of the proof readers/editorial assistants to George RR Martin for 'Game of Thrones' if you read them as I did side by side the writing style is very similar.
