JANUARY TO FEBRUARY
There are only so many books you can read about North Korea without going insane. After reading precicsely that number over the last 6 months, I was in sore need of a change. I was thinking about what form that change would take when I started watching The Sci-Fi Channel’s latest sci-fi saga The Expanse at the start of the year. After a couple of episodes, I was intrigued enough to turn to Google to learn more about the show’s creators and origins. And just like that, my next few books were decided for me. It really has been fun to read a good action-packed, page-turning sci-fi saga again after the harrowing details depicted in all those non-fiction books about North Korea which hold my interest for different reasons.
First in The Expanse series is Leviathan Awakes. It only took me a couple of days to get ahead of the TV show and just a few more days to finish the book. No spoilers, but I will say the book did a better job of introducing the mystery at the heart of the story.
