Fiction. Science Fiction. Humor (Fiction.) HTML:A not-quite epic science fiction adventure about a down-on-his luck galactic pilot caught in a cross-galaxy struggle for survival! Space travel just isn't what it used to be. With the invention of Quantum Teleportation, space heroes aren't needed anymore. When one particularly unlucky ex-adventurer masquerades as famous pilot and hate figure Jacques McKeown, he's sucked into an ever-deepening corporate and political intrigue. Between space pirates, adorable deadly creatures, and a missing fortune in royalties, saving the universe was never this difficult!
From the creator of Mogworld and Jam!

This was a fun, good old-fashioned sci-fi pulpy read. Good story, great writing, all-around good time. ( )

Funny, not quite hilarious.

This is light entertainment. The author was attentive to the world he created and to the plot.

The style is not great. Metaphors are thrown in generously in an attempt to make the story funnier, at the expense of brevity and rhythm.

The book is not a satire: the cover rather means « tries to be funny », most likely to attract hitchhikers guide fans.

The lead character’s story arc is somewhat interesting. The other characters don’t enjoy the same effort. The female characters are not flattering to women in general, a bit cringeworthy even for unsupervised male readers. ( )

A very enjoyable book, but a very unsatisfactory ending. It makes you feel like the author just got tired of writing and finished in a hurry, without tying up loose ends. ( )

Made it 10% off the way through, but it just didn’t grab me. Also, I thought I was picking up on some homophobia and fat-hate, so I looked at some of the other reviews. Yep. There’s more of that. And then some. So, it’s a no from me.

So this is a space gangster satire. Think the 'Transporter' movies but with more of the vibe of a 'Layer Cake' or 'Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels', but in space :) . It is funny in places but the dangers are still real.

This is going to make me sound like a bit of a doint but holy-tract, i was not expecting to give a ply-ing Yahtzee book five stars.
Also this has some new adjectives which you should easily pickup, unless your some sort of complete bracket. I shall add them to my space lexicon along with frak, smeg and shiny :D .

This book is sooo good and solid, it even has themes and good characters and really interesting world-building. I've given Mr. Croshaws previous books 3 and 4 stars but there is a BIG difference for me between a 4 and 5.
For some reason my inner critic was actively waiting to pounce on any sign of weakness but it never happened. The plot works, the pacing works, the characters avoid falling into cliche, there are no easy answers, the galaxy has not been magically fixed by the end, i'm incredulous.

Minor quibbles, i did find some. Firstly the spaceships in this are very old school flashgordon style, and at first it was a little jarring because they didn't seem to fit with the more modern sci-fi elements but they're really not that different from the ones in Firefly or similar fair so i can't point to specifically what seemed off about them. I guess i just needed time to adjust to the type of world i was in.
Also a couple of the funny moments didn't quite land, but thats it thats all the issues i could find. After the disappointment of [b:Ready Player One|9969571|Ready Player One|Ernest Cline|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1500930947s/9969571.jpg|14863741] earlier this year (which has some similarities to this, little bit) this was quite stunning.
