    I've read your preview and looks very nice, quite eager to read the rest soon as I get some time.

    From Phil Jones - This book is worth getting for the first chapter alone. ... The one thing I would really like to say though is Mitis Green brings a refreshing, dangerously funny novel to a familiar pitch. Funny it is, I was laughing out loud just reading the first chapter. There are no long set-ups for the jokes and the humour, it just comes thick and fast. The characters are a wealth of humour with out being one-dimensional. Green has managed to produce a book as good as, dare I say it, Douglas Adams and with a really good plot. There is true depth to all aspects of this book and at times it can be quite poignant and thought-provoking. There are similarities to the TV series 'Red Dwarf'. The ships computer is 'intelligent' and becomes sentient and there is a character that is very analogous in many respects to that of Rimmer. I think this familiarity, though, is not so much a distraction as a benefit as Green appends his own style and spin to make it sufficiently... More > different. Even if you're not a huge fan of Science Fiction, you'll find a lot to enjoy from this book. The characters are a joy to read and that first chapter just has to be read. The book is full of little surprises and some of the reveals are truly entertaining. I don't want to talk too much about the plot because I think it should be saved for when you read this book. ... For a first novel, this is a remarkable debut. Green has plenty of material for the follow on books and could quite happily do a prequel as well. I really hope people will read this book and it provided me with so much enjoyment. One of the best books I've read in a long time.< Less
