Billed As Space Opera, Read Like Very, Very Good Hard Science Fiction

Publishers, go figure, what are they thinking?
Leviathan Wakes by James S. A. Corey is so good
The publisher splashed a big quote across the book
"It's been too long since we've had a really kickass space opera"
-George R. R. Martin"
The story is so much more than k/a space opera
This book may be operatic, but it's loaded with Hard SF
It's loaded with science
How and Where we are going to live
The politics and social dynamic of how we will live
And so much more
Bottom Line: A Blistering Read

Music worth mentioning a second time
I suspect you did not listen to it
Robbie Robertson / How To Become Clairvoyant
You can thank me later, or not
