To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The author continues to build his universe. The stories to date have all been interesting and funny. This one is no different and while I enjoyed it, parts of it just seemed too easy for the crew, considering what they were up against. That being said, it’s a fun read and I’ll probably reread it in order to get all the nuances. I have bought the fourth book in the series and look forward to seeing where the author takes it and hopefully makes things a little more difficult for the entire crew and not just the robot. The series so far has a Guardians of the Galaxy feel to it, so if you like those type of story arcs, this is for you.
great book, love all the characters, there are sims to Farscape, but I loved Farscape. there are references to lots of sci fi, but I love good Sci Fi. its fast paced the story keeps going without all the BLAH, BLAH, BLAH. Now!! I am reading all of these books, look out for my reviews of the others, there is a surprise that you will be interested in. yes book 3 and still good, go to book 4.
I’m not sure why, exactly, but this series continues its chaotic appeal with a storyline which rambles along. Decent character development, even for secondary characters, and enough plot twists to generate interest. Each installment comes to a suitable close, resolving the current story threads before introducing the next book.
I read a LOT of "military" style Sci-Fi and although this isn't one Space Fleet against another, it is very, very entertaining. I especially love the characters and the fact that there is one, and only one human in all of charted space. And he's the Captain of a pretty well armed ship. Really good stories and the crew keeps evolving. Thank you sir, may I please have another?
The Behemoth Job is my favorite of the three so far. I've enjoyed all three but #3 has a better flow between the quips between crew members. I'm finding the old Earth pop references smoother and more endearing (they were a fit forced in the first book, but still funny). Nice twists and turns and I personally enjoyed the lack of devotion to Chekhov's Gun literary law - makes the story more realistic. Fun book; reads really quickly. I'm genuinely looking forward to #4.
