  • Highly recommended!

    It's the second book I read by this author and I'm in love with them. They made me laugh, kept hooked and are well written. I look forward to reading other works by this author. Highly recommended! Many thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for this ARC, all opinions are mine.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Silly space read with a mixed bag of characters

    Battle Beyond the Dolestars by Chris McCrudden was a struggle to read. I understand that it is meant to be satirical set in a sci-fi world. However, there were so many points of the machines not having progressed beyond having sentient thought over the course of a millennia that I had trouble suspending belief. That in of itself may have been a statement, but it wasn’t a very interesting one. I had trouble with the end of life concept. I had trouble with the amount of time having passed between the present and the setting of the book. I felt like the author ways saying that nothing else will happen until something does happen, and when something does happen it doesn’t seem as if the human characters are driving any of the action. The characters excluding Pam and the three aging cyborgs were rather sad. I’m not sure the author really liked any of his human characters. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A laugh-out-loud pun-fest of all things sci-fi

    Take a large portion of Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, add some additional pure absurdity and bad puns, and whirl madly in the blender of the author’s brain and you have Battle Beyond the Dolestars. A laugh-out-loud novel of when machines take over the world and humanity’s greatest hope is a hairdresser, a pilot impersonating Hans Solo, and a sentient toaster named Pam. What could, and does, go wrong makes for a hilarious journey around the cosmos. Once again, the Battlestar Suburbia is trying to gain Earth back from the machines. If you read and enjoyed the first book in the series, this is more of the same joke-y play on science fiction tropes. And RuPaul, which might have something to do with the author’s history of being a burlesque dancer—or not. Still, I love assistant chief Rita telling the Rockettes, who are female and literally going to be pretending to be an asteroid belt, “Gentlemen, start your engines.” Highly recommended! 4 stars! Thanks to Farrago Books and NetGalley for granting my wish for a copy in exchange for my honest review.

    Thanks for your feedback!
