Just started reading 'Leviathan Wakes' - James S.A. Corey. These are the books that the phenomenal Netflix series 'The Expanse' are based on.
I'm getting through the 3rd book atm. 1st series is half of book one. And after reading the books theres a massive lack of sense of time in the show. You watch the show and it doesn't explain that the events are months apart. Half way through season two and you hit book two but it's a year or so later but it dosent explain. The show feels really mediocre now. Though, saying that, I do enjoy it and happy it's been picked up by amazon for a 4th.

@Projectblue
Love gibbo and the sprawl series of books but you forgot neuromancer! The best one. Difficult to read I found. Really fast paced, had to keep rereading parts on the first read throughs. Loved them though when I finished.

Chrome, Neuro, Count, Mona Lisa in that order to any one interested.

also i did read a book called "Nebenan" which was one of the best fantasy books i had in my hands over the past couple of years,
It is unfortunately only in German to get, and it is also of German brothers grimm fairy tale with whom I grew up, but for the German-speaking members it could be interesting

Here's a good one Battlefield Earthy by L Ron Hubbard, I know the guy ended up forming a weird sect, but it's a really good bit of pulp Sci-Fi. If anyone wants a copy, I can let you have the epub version, just PM me via discord, there's a really good eBook reader for android called Lithium

jesus no. reading a book on a tablet is bad enough. On a phone? Nah. Reading books is special. It's like listening to Beethoven or Pink Floyd or whatever else that is acoustically amazing on a 9.99 chinese bluetooth thing. You can, you just shouldn't.
