Leviathan Wakes

Leviathan Wakes (The Expanse, #1)Leviathan Wakes by James S.A. Corey
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Been watching the TV series since the start and wanted to tackle the books. Really enjoyed Leviathan Wakes, both on its own and compared to the show. It's hard-ish sci-fi not as technical as something by Neal Stephenson but feels grounded. If there is one thing that the show improved upon, it was the character of Miller, which is half the book (the other half being Holden, as the chapter are split back and forth between their perspectives). Miller comes across as a bit cliched for the first half - the over-the-hill drunk cop. When he loses his job and ends up on Eros, that's when it clicked for me. Looking forward to reading the whole series!
