Anyone watching The Expanse season 4?
Yes indeed the series is better written than the books and more interesting. The writers of the books have a strong tendency to add a lot of unnecessary details and redundancies of explanations, as if to fill up space in the book. That being said, I think part of this success has to do with the fact that the show screen writers sat together with the book authors and built the show in agreement with their vision of their story. The book writers have even ended up writing episodes for season 4 if I'm not mistaken. In turn, the show has influenced the books and the style has greatly improved, especially in the last novel to date, although the unnecessary details problem remains, in my opinion.

If I compare to Alastair Reynolds, his writing is much neater and goes much straighter to the point, in my opinion
