I’ve had Leviathan Wakes for a while, as well as some of its sequels, for a while. I held off starting the series, however, since there were (and still are) other science fiction series that I want to either start and/or finish. The fact that this is being made into a new series on the Syfy channel pushed me into reading at least the first book before the series begins. I’m assuming that this series will be a lot like A Game of Thrones in that each season will correspond to a single book, and in the case of Leviathan Wakes, I don’t see why it shouldn’t. The book is huge and covers a lot, and I still have a little more than one hundred pages left to go in the book. I do plan on reading its sequel, Caliban’s War, around this time next year before season two of The Expanse starts. Assuming there is a season two.
Now that I have finished reading The Martian (coming to a theater near you in October), I have moved onto reading Childhood’s End by Arthur C. Clarke.
I have been on a “read ’em before the movie/television show comes out” kick lately, hence The Martian and now Childhood’s End which is being made into a show and premiering on the Syfy channel this December. Now, don’t get me wrong, I have always had Childhood’s End in my library and have always wanted to read it, so the fact that it is being made into a television show isn’t the only reason why I’m reading it, but it has certainly lit a fire under my ass to get it read before the premier. Having said that, Foundation by Issac Asmiov is next on the list because that looks like it will be a T.V. show/series premiering sometime in the near future on HBO. After that will be Leviathan Wakes by James S.A. Corey, since that is another show premiering on the Syfy channel this December. After that my schedule is open, but at the rate I read these next books will take me probably to the end of the year.
Just as a side not, I have also been reading a history book on Mark Anthony and Cleopatra which is very interesting so far, even though I am only fifty pages or so into the book. And I am also reading a how-to book on writing and revising and editing, the title escapes me no, but it’s not as boring as I thought it would be and I am actually enjoying it and the suggestions it is giving me to be a better writer. So there you have it!
