If you liked Serenity and Firefly this is basically the same concept expanded to a massive scale. Down to inner planets, the captain and crew, and even corporate bad guys. The characters are good and the science and mechanics of space flight are actually pretty realistic. It's a great read, and absolutely delivers on sheer scale and drama.

Wool

Hugh Howey

For once science fiction that happens under ground instead of outer space. A pretty good book that focuses more on people and less on technology, almost to a fault. Absolutely earns the right to be in the top hundred science fiction books ever written.

Who knew Steve martin wrote books? Even better, who knew they were a pleasure to read. This book is light and feel good.
