Publisher's Summary

Nineteen-year-old Steve Maxwell just wants to get his feet on the star road to find a better homeworld. By facing down Lotus Tong thugs, he earns an opportunity to become an apprentice on a merchant spaceship, leaving the corruption and crime of Earth behind. Sure, he needs to prove himself to an older, tight-knit crew, but how bad can it be if he keeps his head down and the decks clean?
He never counted on the interstellar trade routes having their own problems, from local wars to plagues of pirates - and the jade in his luggage is hotter than a neutron star. Steve's left a world of troubles behind, only to find a galaxy of them ahead....

Heading Out Into Space And Freedom

Where does Take the Star Road rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Up there. I thought this was very easy to follow both on the writing and the narration side. Perfect for this format.

What other book might you compare Take the Star Road to and why?

Nathan Lowell's Quarter share as it's about someone getting their space legs and becoming a merchant. This has a bit more action, however.

Which character – as performed by Bob Allen – was your favorite?

Hard to say. I don't feel like the narrator really does a ton of differentiation with the character voices, but he does give a great feel for the perspective character. So probably the main character, Steve.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
