A review by furicle
Leviathan Wakes, by James S.A. Corey


A fast fun romp around the Solar System that manages to combine pirates, intrastellar war, humour and the potential end of humanity without missing a beat.

It's far from "hard science", but it's not any more hand wavy than it needs to be to keep the plot moving. There were a few spots you don't want to think about too much, but nothing requiring you to hold your nose.

The ending was weak, and leaves you wanting more, but that's to be expected with the first book of a new series I suppose.

The characters are interesting, the backdrops have some depth, and even as it moves along well it's not all fluff - there are elements that make you stop and think.
