This book follows Carrie Harchett, who is wonderfully described in the blurb as a low-achieving daydreamer... and maybe it's that element, or may be something else entirely, but I found Carrie to be easy to connect with. I was excited to see this marked on Goodreads as the first book in a eries as I'd love to see more of Carrie in the future.
The adventure in this story is one that will keep you guessing, Green never goes the predictable route. There were a few points in the story where both Carrie and the plot did things I never would have expected.
[...] I was rarely tempted to put the book down, let alone stop reading.
Only The Books For Me
Mission Improbable is a cute, fun science fiction adventure guaranteed to generate at least a few chuckles, if not outright laughter.
The main character, Carrie, has a big heart but a short attention span. [...] she not only lands a job as a customer service supervisor in a call center but also, by a series of strange coincidences gets hired as a conflict resolution agent for the Transgalactic Council.Carrie has absolutely no idea what the latter job entails, but finds out rather quickly when she and a visiting coworker get transported to another world through a portal under the sink.
Carrie and her kleptomaniac coworker Dave have their work cut out for them. The conflict must be successfully resolved if they wish to live...
Not too short, and not too long, Mission Improbable is a fun escapist read, perfect for when you want to relax, but don't have a lot of free time. No graphic violence and no sexual references make it appropriate for a wide audience.
With scenes that are well crafted and descriptive this promises to be the start of a great new series A fun, fast, laugh-out-loud book with quirky characters that you will fall in love with. I enjoyed every page. I highly recommend this book.
