If you like comedy, and or science fiction, great. This is the book for you, buy it RIGHT THIS VERY MINUTE.
If you don't like science fiction, I recommend giving this book a try. It's very inviting, and most likely afterward you'll find this brand of witty space fantasy is your cuppa tea, and you'll search out some Red Dwarf or Doctor Who (very obvious influences on the writer, Ben Paddon, who is delightfully british. As opposed to non-delightfully british, something I've seen happen.)
If you don't like funny things, there's really nothing I can do for you. Grow a sense of humor, then come back, you'll get plenty of opportunities to exercise it reading this book. I personally laughed out loud 27 times while reading, smirked a further 42 times, nudged someone nearby to point out something interesting 3 times, thought 'yes' over a particular piece of dialogue 1 million and 6 times, and got the hiccups twice. And I've allready read all the content before on Jump-Leads.com, where further tales of these characters continue in tri-weekly webcomic form.
Basically, there are two characters, Meaney, an unswaveringly happy optimist, & Llewellyn an unrelentingly cynical pessimist, stuck together in a very tiny space ship. They tend to get on each other's nerves a bit. Their ship, the 'Flurry' can jump between parallel universes, all of which are the same as ours only different. They've gotten a bit lost, and so adventures ensue. Robots, aliens, robotic aliens, this book has everything.
My personal favorite line of dialogue:
Some guy, pointing at a giant round thing: 'It's hatching!'
Meaney: "Like an Egg?"
Llewellyn, rolling his eyes: "No, like a tractor."
I have allready loaned my copy of this book to a friend to get him addicted, that's how much I like it.
There ya go. Buy this book, my amazon.com review commands you. I think you'll like it. And if you don't, I will PERSONALLY give you a disapproving look.
