    The Martian by Andy Weir (electronicmemory)
    electronicmemory: Andy Weir and James S. A. Corey met at a book signing and agreed that The Expanse series and The Martian are set in the same time-line. So, if you're a fan of The Martian and want to find out what happened after Mars was colonized, read Leviathan Wakes. If you're a fan of The Expanse series, and want to read about the very first Martian colonist, read The Martian. For proof, check a 3 Oct 2015 tweet by @JamesSACorey for confirmation. One of The Expanse books also references a Martian ship named the 'Mark Watney'.… (more)

Great space opera book, I intend to read the rest of the series and watch the show as soon as possible. ( )

I've been meaning to read this series for a while & now it seems to be finished I've made a start. I enjoyed it too. Nothing too heavy in the sci-fi side. Characters I could mostly keep track of. Plot I could follow.
Hope to get to no 2 in June. ( )

Loved the series on SyFy/Amazon - love the books even more. Best hard sci-fi since Heinlein. A new favorite - can't wait to complete the series. ( )

I loved this book. Such magnificent world building and a huge, unique variety of alien life. The title describes the author's attempt to cover a vast story well. Perhaps the only negative I would say is that the rest of the series did not live up to the promise of The Expanse. ( )

Fantafín vísindasaga. Sá nýlega fyrsta þátt seríunnar Expanse sem unnin er úr fyrri hluta þessarar bókar. Bækurnar eru nú orðnar þó nokkrar og ku bara batna.
Sagan gerist í framtíðinni þar sem mannkynið hefur flakkað um sólarkerfið og myndað búsetukjarna á Tunglinu, Mars og Loftsteinabeltinu. En farið er að bera á tortryggni og hernaðaruppbyggingu auk þess sem auðug siðlaus fyrirtæki hafa eigin stefnu sem virðir mannslíf lítils. ( )
