Grammar: Since I ‘read’ the book mostly by the text-to-speech feature, I only saw one error in the text, which is important in my wanting to continue with a book. The book read well. Punctuation, sentence structure, descriptions and dialogue were steady, realistic and well edited.
The ending was somewhat of a surprise. I thought there would be some change or resolution with the gift shop at the end. Qualm: it always feels unrealistic, and foolhardy, to me when characters stand arguing in life-threatening situations. Otherwise, this was a good and entertaining read and an engaging story.
The verbal jousting of the two main protagonists to be perfectly honest, is golden and carries the weight of this short story which is a relatively short read. The short length is a strong point too, as it doesn't get bogged down under the pressure to add useless filler. That means right from page one, it hits the ground running. As someone who has read piles of sci-fi novels, all I can say is thank friggin' goodness as many books in this genre start so painfully slow, so kudos to D.E. Morris for good judgement.
There will no doubt be references to the works of Douglas Adams when mentioning this book. However, I feel it possesses its own style of humor better grounded in semi-real world physics ( ie. no Improbability Drives ) more akin to a Doctor Who universe. If I might allow myself to hope for the impossible, this has the potential to be a brilliant audio-book. The proper British talent of John Cleese narrating of course.
