Space Opera Books Recommendations

Post by gali »

Here is a place where we can recommend and/or ask for recommendations of what book(s) to read this month.

"Space opera is a subgenre of speculative fiction or science fiction that emphasizes romantic, often melodramatic adventure, set mainly or entirely in space, generally involving conflict between opponents possessing powerful (and sometimes quite fanciful) technologies and abilities. Perhaps the most significant trait of space opera is that settings, characters, battles, powers, and themes tend to be very large-scale."

My favorites: The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet by Becky Chambers, Dune by Frank Herbert, Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card, Old Man’s War by John Scalzi to name a few.

Do you have any recommendations that you'd like to share?
