Leviathan Wakes the team of James S. A. Corey (2011)
Yes, this is the first of a series if books that explores the space opera that belongs in the Expanse universe. And, yes, it is now a SciFy channel series (which I have not seen). It is pretty good. Lots of action and a series of likable characters. It all takes place in our solar system in the near future (2312?) where there is political friction among The Belters, Mars and good old Earth. A shooting war breaks out that may, or may not, involve alien technology.
This was OK light reading. I am not too impressed. I will not go out and buy the sequels, alt least not right away. I guess my quest for a satisfying space opera has been tarnished by reading the likes of Herbert, Banks and Vinge.
6/10
