Sometimes you happen across a rare gem of a book, hidden in amongst the Amazonian debris, and this one is one of the best I’ve chanced across in years. Zany, original, funny, and always engaging, it was a pleasure to read from start to finish.
If the idea of a beer-swilling braggadocio yob commanding a mission to land at a Mars settlement being prepared by incompetent depressed robots appeals to you, the hesitate no more! This is the book for you.
Duke and Roman have a masterly grasp of the balancing act required for sci-fi comedy. The humour and rambunctiousness is rife, following stupid people to inevitably absurd ends, but it never jumps the shark so to speak, because it remains grounded in a scientific/tech setting that is crafted with care, and so flawless, that you never think to question it. The professionalism and care in the scene setting anchors the story and allows the ridiculous characters to flourish. This is a writing duo destined for success.
Short action-packed chapters maintain the pace and perfectly suit the comedic nature of the scenes. The writing is witty, and it left me grinning like a fool.
I can’t speak highly enough of this. Go and buy it, you won’t regret it.
But wait… turns out the robots are just as incompetent as the crew and the super computer has his own agenda. Adding to this mayhem is the sighting of potential alien life and a murder mystery to solve. Needless to say the crew stumble from one catastrophe to another with hilarious results. I have to admit by the end I even had a soft spot for Captain Flint.
This book is one you don't want to miss!
