there, too In the meantime, please enjoy these space babes I ll admit the cover snagged my attention for this one The tagline alone Space is hard Grab a helmet made me think it was going to be an epic, funny space thriller This is definitely what the book sets out to do, however, it really fails to be exciting or funny in any way.The plot of this book was slow and hard to buy into The pacing was just poor there were really only enough plot points to fill a book half this size, making the book really drag It just felt like it should have bee I ll admit the cover snagged my attention for this one The tagline alone Space is hard Grab a helmet made me think it was going to be an epic, funny space thriller This is definitely what the book sets out to do, however, it really fails to be exciting or funny in any way.The plot of this book was slow and hard to buy into The pacing was just poor there were really only enough plot points to fill a book half this size, making the book really drag It just felt like it should have been a novella and not a full length book Also, the main villains of this book were really not believable Their entire cause was Earth First focus on the problems on Earth rather than colonizing space While this could have been an interesting set up, the execution made zero sense Moving to space was shown to be a choice in this book, one that came with passing a series of exams and a promise that you wouldn t come back to Earth Why on Earth pun intended would anyone who is part of the Earth First movement ever leave Earth with a one way ticket Why would this group not be based on Earth Wouldn t it be to their advantage that people are leaving Earth and therefore reducing over population Also, why would they have to kill everyone who left Earth Why not just take over Earth politics and reshape that planet as your own The whole thing honestly made zero sense, and made an already bad book less enjoyable.The possibilities of having a book set in space are endless you can have some crazy, futuristic settings with any kind of futuristic vibe you could want Instead, this book mostly took place on planets that were pretty much cookie cutter copies of Earth Not a ton of time is even spent on the main spaceship which is given virtually no description other than it s a Honda and it s pretty Altogether, the setting felt squandered and was pretty disappointing Even the settings that were heavily featured were pretty underdeveloped there was very little description or world building.Possibly the worst part about this book is the main character, Nax He s a hot shot pilot who flunked out of the academy test his failure is never really explained, despite his apparently stellar track record before this test and is thrust into the leadership role for this band of misfits He rotates between being obnoxiously cocky, to repetitively insecure seriously, he repeats the same phrases over and over , to indecisive in his love life All around, he was just kind of a mashup of tropes, without muchdepth There was no growth for him throughout the book and most of his motivations really aren t clear Also, it s clear he s meant to be the comedic relief of this book, but there was nothing really amusing about him The rest of the characters were no better all one dimensional with almost no indication as to their motivations for their actions.This book really just disappointed me It had so much potential but really did nothing with it It s also a genre that hasn t had a lot of activity in the last couple of years, so I was really looking forward to a breath of fresh air in the space If you re looking for a quality book set in space, check out The Martian by Andy Weir or Across the Universe by Beth Revis 1 5 The Breakfast Club
