MCB Book Club - Leviathan Wakes

EDIT: SPOILERS STARTING ON PAGE 2 OF THIS THREAD. BEWARE

Trbo and I are currently reading Leviathan Wakes by James S. A. Corey, and wanted to invite anyone else who's interested to read it with us.

I'm only a couple pages in at the moment, and I'm typically a pretty slow reader (~dozen pages a day as I find time), but it would be fun to discuss as we read! That being said, there will probably be SPOILERS at some point, so proceed with caution. And if you have read it already, try to avoid posting anything revealing for at least a few weeks.

Anyone else down to read with us?

Yup, I'm around 20% through. Chapter....15ish I think. I go more by the percentage because I use Kindle

I'm a fairly fast reader, and I have down time at work

I have seen the expanse as well so I know roughly where the story is going but it's cool to see the ways it's different.

I think they pretty much nailed the characters so far. Miller is maybe a little cleaner cut cop than the show made him out to be but everyone else is pretty spot on

The books came first. And I'm up to the 4th - Cibola Burn. I'm normally a slow reader and prefer print over e- reader. Once the first book got rolling, it was a keep reading until I finished book 3. I'm stuck on 4 and have re-read the start a few times. Hoping this thread will let me know if I should persevere. But I can tell you this... The first three are definitely worth it.

60% through the first book, I think I'm around chapter 30

And I just found out last night that the expanse season 4 drops on December 13. Trailer looks pretty intense

Up to date on the series.

Amazing science fiction. Love that they keep some physics and biology actually true to how they function in our apparent universe (I.e. space, time, distance, gravity).

Makes it a lot easier to buy in.

And itís actually two dudes who write together and pen it as James SA Corey.

Double FYI for paintball rules there should be no "offer" of surrender, its either mandatory surrender at X distance when guy is behind you or no surrender and you get shot in the booty. "offer" of surrender makes for some ridiculous and dangerous john woo tactics.

Pump the breaks man, you don't want to get through the story too quickly
