Accompanied by his faithful minidrag Pip and a most troublesome alien called Abalamahalamatandra - Ab for short - Flinx set out for Alaspin, the ruggedly primitive homeworld of his flying snake.There he hoped to find the giant man with the gold earring who somehow held the key to Flinx's mysterious past and to the strange powers he possessed. Chasing down his heritage was trouble enough, but Flinx didn't know what real trouble was until he realized that the Qwarm - a deadly assassin squad - were three steps behind him with a contract to kill.But the minidrag's homeworld did not offer safety and Flinx had a terrible time just staying alive ... a matter complicated to no mean degree by a collapsar already set on an unstoppable death course across the galaxy! BONUS AUDIO: Includes an exclusive introduction written and read by author Alan Dean Foster.

the parts seemed more than the whole

This is part of a series. The book fits into a bigger story line, but successfully brings things together in this episode that it doesn't simply feel like a con to sell more books.

The characters are quite interesting, but not gripping. I was quite interested in their faits, but not enough that I"ll look up the earlier books, or look for more of the series.

I like Alan Dean Foster as a writer and maybe it is that his works make better reading than listening to. What you can read in a moment of two draws out with narration.

Stefan Rudnicki does a good job with the pace, tone and accents. One or two slip a little, but enough to be annoying; very occasional.

As always A. D. Foster delivers with Flinx & Pip..

What did you love best about The End of the Matter?

Story keeps you enrolled right through the end...

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

Great voice, expressions, easy to differentiate between characters...

Frolicking good adventure

The first installment in the adventures of Pip and Flinx. More space adventure than science fiction the story never fails to entertain. Manages to keep you on the edge of your seat as you wonder what will happen next. A good listen for both adults and Juveniles alike. Dont skip this one if you like an adventure story
