I got my copy from Amazon too, if you are not a Prime member I'd say do not pay for shipping. I ordered Saturday evening and selected free shipping for arrival this Friday. It came Sunday morning, barely 12 hours after I ordered. Must have been in the warehouse in Balzac I'm guessing.

I want to thank this thread as I am slightly over half way through Leviathan Wakes and I have purchased book 2 and 3 since I am enjoying this space opera so much. I canít wait to finish reading the series and then start watching it.

I’ve watched the three tv seasons - can I go into reading book 4 or do I need to read from the start?

I'd read from the start, as with any book to TV/Film adaptation some characters get combined together or cut out. So there will be a few names in the books after 3 that you may not be familiar with. You won't be completely out of the loop if you don't but miss out on more world building for sure.

Interview with Amazon Prime staff at Comic Con before the Expanse panel says season 4 is slated for a December release date, with the season being that late it's probably going to be a full season dump all at once

Just finished Tiamat's Wrath... Fantastic book and I really enjoyed it. It'll be really fun to watch the adaptation if it makes to that point.

Few thoughts.

I've now watched this show. It's mostly good, I can't call it great. I certainly wouldn't put it on part with the first two seasons of BSG, as I was led to believe... I'd actually be more inclined to compare it to Babylon 5, given the political tensions and machinations involved, especially in the first two seasons. But there are some rather silly and convenient things, even ignoring the usual "wow, our protagonists really do seem to wind up getting entangled in every major event in the solar system, don't they" issue. Acting is generally... not great. Elizabeth Mitchell is fine at playing the same character she usually does, and Shohreh Aghdashloo is good. Pretty much everyone else... not exactly bad, just sort of the usual syfy fare. Writing is fine, if a bit melodramatic at times.

I dunno, I guess I'm invested enough that I'll keep watching it as long as they keep making it. Where they left season 3 is pretty intriguing, lots of possibilities.

Sort of my thoughts as well. It's an entertaining enough show but the acting and writing really pulls you out at times.

The Holden actor almost ruins the books for me. The other actors I can buy, when I read the books I can imagine them, but Holden tears me right out of the story.

Itís the squinty eyes. Doing the same acting squint that Dane DeHaan did in Valarian.

The constant mouth agape thing is pretty bad, too.
