Amazing book

I really enjoyed this story, the storyline was great and the narration was on point even changing voices for different characters. I wish this would come out as a movie as the story is perfect for one. I am pretty picky with my books but this one was written perfect and hit my imagination the way I like it. I fully recommend this to anyone who enjoys syfy books. Thank you Tom Merritt, hope there is a sequel, I would definitely buy that one too.

Great Story - wish there was more

Great character and universe building without it seeming like it is being forced into your ears. You will likely listen to this several times to get all the nuisance and details packed into this story about a time traveling pilot who is constantly running into people who know more about his future than he does. Sad to say, but I was enjoying the story so much that I was sorry when it was over. It felt complete, but I wasn't ready for it to end.

Fast paced, entertaining, and well read.

If you could sum up Pilot X in three words, what would they be?

Fun, Smart, and clever.

What did you like best about this story?

Pilot-X is fast paced, entertaining, and for a time travel book surprisingly understandable. He somehow manages to make you think of time travel as part of day to day life for the characters, while keeping you guessing about what comes next. Merritt takes a genre that could have easily been full of clichés and turns it into a story that is both fun and refreshing.

What does Kevin T. Collins bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

As an avid Audio book listener, I can also highly recommend the Audible version, which is read extremely well. Keven T. Collins adds his own incredible talent to the mix, brings the Pilot-X to life, and makes the comedic beats of the story hit with perfect timing.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I find myself hard to please when it comes to sci-fi these days, but I can strongly recommend Pilot-X to even the most jaded reader, or listener. It will leave you with a smile on your face, and that is perhaps the most important endorsement I can give.

Any additional comments?

As a fan of Tom Merritt’s Daily Tech News Show, and his assorted podcast throughout the years, felt a bit obligated to check out Pilot-X. From the description, I was worried that it was just going to be a Dr. Who knockoff, and admittedly it has a lot of similarities to that classic BBC show, which I expected. What I did not expect was for it to be so good.

Dr Who Esk jaunt through time and space

While it took a while to get into the style Tom Merritt used in this story, particularly with the repetition of the main characters name, once I had drawn a mental parallel between this character, and Dr Who, another time travelling jack of all trades, I was able to focus on the development of Pilot X. While I understand the importance of the naming structure, it would have been easier to digest if sometimes the name was shortened.

The pacing of the story built up to a nice crescendo as it twisted and turned though time and space, and I think I might need to read it again to really grasp all the detail, but for a first effort, this story shows a lot of promise.

In another comparison to Dr Who, one of my favourite characters in the story was Pilot X's ship, but you'll just have to read it to find out why.

Been waiting for this!

I've been looking forward to this release since it was announced! First of his books with an Audible version. Loved all of his other works.

If you're on the fence to buy this, just do it, you won't regret it! <>
