Publisher's Summary

The third part of the laugh-out-loud sci-fi adventure series, from the author critics are calling "the new Douglas Adams."
Cal Carver, petty-criminal turned space adventurer, is on a suicide mission - and he really hates suicide missions. But this time it's to save his best buddy, Splurt, who has been taken prisoner by the elderly assassin, Lady Vajazzle, and the evil Zertex corporation.
When they discover that the ship carrying Splurt never made it to Zertex, their search leads them through a wormhole to a mysterious planet unlike any they have seen before. Will they survive this strange new world and finally find their friend? And, more importantly, does he even want to be found?
Packed with gladiator battles, angry bees, a big thing blowing up, and the return of the galaxy's oldest assassin, Space Team: The Search for Splurt, is the rip-roaring conclusion to the first Space Team trilogy.

Lot of "what's his name"

Would you listen to Space Team: The Search for Splurt again? Why?

Humor mostly. Maybe a bit repetitive, but funny anyway.

What other book might you compare Space Team: The Search for Splurt to and why?

Not a book, a movie - "Galaxy Quest". Some characters do not know what to do, some even do not have names - like crewmember nr 5 or Zortex Guy 1.

What does Phil Thron bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He is really good with putting different voices to characters. Some dramatizations have less variety than this one narrator performance.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Not that kind of book.

Any additional comments?

Characters are still very 2D (as in previous books in the series). Author attempts to add some depth to main character by memories of lost family, but it just doesn't work well. Other than this it is a fun and easy book.
