Review of The Worldship Humility

Review of The Worldship Humility

This was a pretty amazing story set aboard a colony ship headed for a new world after Earth was destroyed. It had pretty good characters and it kept my attention the entire time. The only drawback was over-the-top profanity, and the fact that it kindof ends with a cliffhanger. The… Read more »

Review of The Fall of Terradox

Review of The Fall of Terradox

This book very much continues in the same vein as the original book. It is action-based with some well-developed, but static characters who have to save Terradox from destruction. It really is similar to the first book in every way. There is a bit too-much profanity for me, and the… Read more »

Review of Wishes and Wellingtons

Review of Wishes and Wellingtons

This is a book set in 1800’s England about a girl in a boarding school who discovers a magical genie. It was very entertaining and the historical setting made things a bit different and fresh. However, the main character Maeve was a bit unlikeable, full of questionable decisions (to be… Read more »

Review of Sovereign

Review of Sovereign

This is a book about a boy who crash lands on an alien planet and must try to survive while waiting for his parents to rescue him. Overall, I found the book fairly boring with little plot and a convoluted premise (i.e. why his parents would put him on an… Read more »

Review of Zero G

This is very much a children’s book so while it has an interesting concept, the execution is very simplistic. All of the characters are rather shallow and undeveloped. It is entertaining, but probably more so for younger listeners. The author did take a pretty accurate view of most of the… Read more »

Review of Colony Lost

Review of Colony Lost

This is a book about a colony on a new planet that goes horribly wrong. The book started off fairly strong and had some interesting world building but ultimately it started going downhill. So many things in this novel were just not believable or plausible. There are a few interesting… Read more »

Review of Vessel

Review of Vessel

This novel had a really great premise: an alien spacecraft shows up near the ISS. Mission control loses contact with the ISS and sends 2 new astronauts up to investigate and try to make contact. Unfortunately, the execution of this idea is abysmal. Many of the events are just implausible… Read more »

Review of The Forever Ship

The third and final novel of the Fire Sermon involves the resistance’s struggle against the council, their quest to save omegas, and them trying to prevent several awful acts by the General and Zach.

Review of The Map of Bones

Review of The Map of Bones

In this sequel to The Fire Sermon, Cass and Piper work to rebuild the resistance and stop the evil schemings of the council and her brother Zack. For the most part this book is more of the same, keeps up a pretty good plot, and has some nice twists. There… Read more »

Review of Red Hope, An Adventure Thriller

Review of Red Hope, An Adventure Thriller

This book is about an alien artifact discovered on Mars, and the hastily rushed mission from Earth to investigate. This review will contain spoilers. I will say this book was entertaining, but it had quite a few issues. First, its just so implausible. Not the part about finding an artifact,… Read more »

Review of Artemis

Review of Artemis

I picked up this audiobook as I really liked The Martian. In Artemis, the story follows small-time criminal Jazz and her life on Artemis, a city on the moon. Overall, the story was pretty entertaining. There is a lot of science and explanation just like The Martian. The plot pacing… Read more »

Review of All These Worlds (Bobiverse 3)

For the most part, I thought this was a great conclusion to the series. It ends in a really good place and the way they tackled problems was pretty neat (especially their solution to the “others”). It wasn’t perfect though because there was a lot of slow boring stuff in… Read more »

Review of For We Are Many

The sequel to BOB ramps up the action and stakes. Now there is a new threat to the galaxy that the BOBs must take on, plus their continued work to save multiple species from destruction. I though the book picked up the action well and kept a great pace. The… Read more »

Review of Audiobook The Hangman’s Daughter

In The Hangman’s Daughter, a former marine takes over a prison space ship and uses the prisoners as mercenaries. The premise is intriguing, but there isn’t much substance here. While there is a lot of action, and it is entertaining at times, most of the characters are pretty flat and… Read more »

Review of The Fold

Review of The Fold

The Fold is a book about a DARPA project gone awry. I won’t give away the whole plot, though it should be somewhat obvious after the first chapter. I found the book very entertaining and the first part of the book went very well. Then things start slowing to a… Read more »
