Leviathan Wakes by James S.A. Corey
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I've only seen six episodes so far of the Syfy TV series based on these books, but based on that, I wasn't really expecting quite what came up in Leviathan Wakes. It's a massive, expansive (of course) piece of space-opera, a little like Red Rising in its depiction of the future of our solar system a couple hundred years from now (but not progressed to the point where it becomes an enormous space Roman Empire), and also reminding me a lot of the new movie Life, which I'm dying to see still, because of its depiction of a vomitously disgusting alien...something that sure seems to have a taste for human flesh.
Though it's not my favorite book ever, this one's motivated me to finish the first season of The Expanse that much sooner.
