I don't know this jewel of a series has not been more widely recognized for its brilliance!
Anyone who enjoyed the movie or show "Serenity" will heartily enjoy the adventures of Captain Cal Carver and his Space Team.
Suspend disbelief, turn down the critical voice in your head and let yourself get lost in the lovable, oh-so-cheesy, entertaining banter provided by Mr. Hutchison and his characters.
Give it a shot and give it a thumbs up for not taking itself too seriously (I'm talking to Alerón Kong here), making us laugh, and still providing a great story.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
This book hilarious! I was laughing so hard I cried.
Any additional comments?
I would recommend this for fans of Guardians of the Galaxy and Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Smartass and sometimes clueless lead character makes for many funny situations. The narrator does an excellent job of bringing the characters to life. Highly recommend giving this one a listen. I received a free copy of this audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

A comedy science fiction story, rather than a sci fi story with comedy: very different. And whilst it has the potential to be a very funny film, given excellent actors playing it for real (as opposed to for laughs as there is sufficient built into the text already, for example the astonishingly bad piloting of Lauren, able to accidentally land on the only building within a thousand miles of desert), I did not enjoy it as a book.
This was by no means the fault of narrator Phil Thorn, who read flawlessly with good intonation and understanding, and expression of the text as well as giving individual and differentiated voices to the various protagonists. A good performance, although I did increase the listening speed to 1.25, finding his pace just a tad too slow.
The book is well written and immaginative in content. If near slapstick humour is your thing, this is probably for you. Sadly, it did not appeal to me. My thanks, however, to the rights holder who freely gifted me a copy of the book, via Audiobook Boom.

The Space Team series is a must listen/read. Ot would make an excellent TV series. If done right. But having watched Ready Player One getting fonked by Spielberg I have my doubts that anyone would do it justice.
