I am old enough to remember when Sci-Fi was mostly upbeat, the characters were likable, and the plot made sense. This book recaptures that tradition. And the narration was good, much better than in other Sci-Fi series I have recently listened to. The book is not deep but if you want some enjoyable escapist Sci-Fi, this is a good choice. I hope Audible makes the rest of the series available soon.

If you could sum up Omega Rising in three words, what would they be?
ADVENTUROUS, HUMOROUS and THRILLING. But I would prefer not to have to sum up this amazing book in three words.
What other book might you compare Omega Rising to and why?
I would compare it to Farscape (not a book, sorry) but I liked Omega Rising even better. I definitely want to follow these books, if the adventure continues. I was completely sucked in by the journey the main character takes. He's relatable and experiences everything in a way that makes it that much more real and incredible to the reader. He goes from being a jaded hermit, to being a natural leader and hero to oppressed peoples of the universe.
What about Paul Heitsch’s performance did you like?
Paul did an amazing job on this book. I love his character voices and his smooth voice. He has a way with flexion and living the story as he tells it. Very enjoyable. I won't hesitate to listen to more of his works.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes, once I got through the first few chapters, I had a hard time stopping.
Any additional comments?
I hope Joshua Dalzelle has written more of these books and that Paul Heitsch has narrated them as well.

This should be strictly aimed at under 14s. The writer obviously cut his teeth writing this one. I'll not be listening to the rest of the series. But Warship by same author is pretty good.

Initially thought the narrator could have done a bit better but warmed up to him and ended up listening to the book twice so far. Now on to book two for the 2nd time.
Good storyline, the usual human makes good in a difficult galaxy whilst making friends and kicking butt.
Would recommend the series without hesitation.

I completely enjoyed this book. I love the idea, the narrative does a great job and you can always tell which character is speaking and I felt like I could feel the friendship they created. on to the second book
too shallow not enough story development. jason meets too many new worlds and aliens too fast. not enough background or world building
