  • Carrie Hatcher

    Sometimes I like to buy books that I know nothing about or don't know the author. It's an excellent way to discover new and hidden gems and maybe read a book you wouldn't have read otherwise period really like this book I love science fiction the aliens are a little silly but that's fine with me that's the type of book it is. The main character is believable and I love her friend Dave that she drags along through all of the books I definitely give it 5 stars

  • Irritating protagonist

    Basically, a light, rather entertaining read, which is written well enough. I was personally, rather irritated with the main character Carrie as she continually ignores important information being given to her, then thinks she can "figure it out" along the way. While I suspect JJ Green means to allow her character to mature throughout the series, nothing in the first 3 books is inspiring me to pick up the rest of the series. Another minor point that irks me is the vast difference between Carrie's description and her depiction on the cover - either the artist did not read the description or was prevented from drawing a plump, sloppy woman for the cover. However, as mentioned above, it's good enough for a light read if you're into the human-suddenly-thrust-into-previously-unknown-wider-galactic-federation type of story.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Light sci-fi but fun

    Carrie scores a job as a Transgalactic Intercultural Community Crisis Liaison Officer and manages to cause chaos whilst trying to solve disputes between aliens. Naturally the problems are resolved but not without extra confusion - she even manages to eat some of the aliens along the way. Yes, it's light sci-fi but it's fun sci-fi

  • Wonderfully quirky

    In the first few pages we are introduced to Carrie, a hopeless scatterbrained individual who, it seems, will never amount to anything. But then she is whisked away into a quirky series of adventures with weird and wonderful aliens around the universe where we learn that she is far from hopeless. The story line indicates (to me, anyway) that J.J.Green is either exceptionally imaginative or has knowledge of the universe denied to us mere humans.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Takes you to another world

    You need to embrace the fantasy to be with the characters. Takes you away from our daily stresses. Interesting story line in the 3 books
