Book Description

In Teleport This, Simon and Gilbert, two terrestrial physicists, leave Earth and stumble into and across a larger universe, trying desperately to find their way back to Earth in one piece while possibly purchasing a working lightsaber or two along the way. As they travel about, the boys meet up with girls both human and electrical, AI is explained, dog-people are examined, battles ensue, aliens interact with reality TV, situations get juicy, brains get probed and, of course, a liberal amount of alcohol is consumed throughout. All this for your reading pleasure.

This novel supports Amazon’s ‘look inside’ feature so if you like witty dialogue and interesting characters coupled with an absorbing storyline click on the cover image and read a bit. If you like it, buy it. If you really like it, buy three or four.

So let’s go and don’t forget the tequila and chips.

Teleport This is the first book in the Small Universe series. Simon and Gilbert’s adventures continue in Soul to Soul and Geppetto’s Daughter. All three books are available in a single volume titled The Teleport This Trilogy at the super low price of $4.99 US.

1.0 out of 5 stars good plot, awful writing May 26, 2013
By kieler
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book has a good plot and is laugh-out-loud funny in places. Unfortunately, there is an incredible number of grammatical errors, often several per page (things like were instead of we're, "percentage" is plural, then singular, then plural again, all in the same paragraph, as well as the oft-repeated "Hey, what's shaken?"). One reviewer allegedly found only one mistake in the entire book. This reviewer either A) read only half a page B) is the author or C) read a version that had few mistakes, and thousands of mistakes have been added in a later version. I made use of the Amazon return policy to return this book for a refund. Maybe it would be OK if it were free, but having to pay money for a ton of mistakes isn't my idea of great value.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Read October 28, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Teleport This is a great example of witty and fun science fiction. The characters are very entertaining and the story moves along very quickly, without getting bogged down in technobabble. It begins on present day earth, focused on main characters Gilbert and Simon, but they're quickly complemented with a variety of other characters, specifically a couple of take charge girls that set the boys straight as they bop around the universe. It's fun watching Gilbert and Simon develop from geeks to guys over the course of the story. The best part is that you don't need to be a science fiction lover to enjoy this book.

Sci-fi fans will appreciate the semi-veiled references to other books and movies, but anyone looking for a good read will enjoy the story and its humorous dialogue.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just OK August 4, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The tone of the story was fun. I enjoyed the narration in the first paragraph or so. And then the narration disappeared and it started to feel more like a screenplay. It was mostly reading quotes and trying to remember who was talking in what order (and when a conversation involved more than two people I sometimes got lost). There was very little description of either the surroundings or the characters, something I would have liked to help get lost in the story. It was a quick read, though.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lots of fun. February 28, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book does not try to take itself too seriously. The author does not bog us down with reams of technobabble, or try to impress us with his knowledge of theoretical physics.It is a good story, filled with well developed and interesting characters. Most importantly, it is funny. As much as I enjoy science fiction, I also enjoy having a good laugh, and I got plenty of both here.

Around 80%, there were of number of technical errors with the text, with some paragraphs repeating, and some missing entirely. It could be I got a bad download, or maybe a glitch in my device. Either way, I do not hold that against the author. However, there were a number of grammatical errors which I did find distracting. Still, the book overall was very good, and I will probably read more from this author.

4.0 out of 5 stars a light, funny read February 28, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Amazon assures me this is a full-length novel but since I read it in one sitting, I'm having trouble accepting their word for it. That aside, it did move very quickly and it's a lot of fun, especially if you can keep track of where everybody is and what they're doing. There's no real depth to the characters but hey, it's a comedy, they don't have to be deep to be funny.

The book could use another proofreading pass, but if you can get past the spelling, grammar, etc., then it's worth some time. Normally I'd knock a half-star or full star off for the errors, but it did keep me up reading pretty late. So we'll call this one a full four stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Who Says Sci Fi Can't Be Funny March 10, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
What a fun read. A couple of Geek theoretical physicists look through the wrong end of a radio telescope and discover --- a universe full of people! A funny book that doesn't take itself too seriously -- OK, doesn't take itself at all seriously, and if you are a big sci fi fan, you will love this mini vacation from the deadly serious alien military invasions. Just a great read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what I needed December 28, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was slogging through a different sci-fi book by some major author when someone recommended this. It was a breath of fresh air. Quick read, doesn't take itself seriously, and fun. I've just downloaded the next in this series and I'm looking forward to it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Modern Douglas Adams? September 14, 2012
By Stoo
Format:Kindle Edition
As soon as I finished this book, I went and bought the sequel, no hesitation. There is a bit of good witty dialogue, with modern pop-culture references that are not over-explained - this is refreshing. Fairly fast paced and doesn't really get boring at all. This could be because its quite a short book; nothing is really fleshed out to any great length. The story arc was still long enough, but I did get the feeling of being rushed through it slightly. I definitely want to read more from this universe, and see what these characters get up to in future adventures, which is always a sign of a good book in my opinion.
Also important for these kindle releases is that I found very few grammatical errors. Quite a lot of kindle releases are plagued with bad grammar and/or spelling. I think I found a single mistake in this whole book - also very refreshing as hitting an error every second page can really ruin the enjoyment of an otherwise good read.
