Plot. Van Tudor inherits a farm from his grandfather. There is a spaceship in the barn. There is also a wise-cracking AI bird. Seems there was some truth in the stories of space grandpa told Van decades ago.
Liked. A great book for the young adult that likes space-based video games, if you can get them to read a book rather than play a video game. Or, grown-ups nostalgic for the space-based comic book characters of their youth. Squeaky clean reads, no sex, no objectionable language; buy it for a youngster. Narration and production are fine.
Not so hot. Not critical of this book at all – it’s just not my cup o’ tea – a bit too “Lost in Space”.
Written J.N. Chaney and Terry Maggert, narrated by Jeffrey Kafer, 13 hours of listening in unabridged audiobook format, released in December 2021 by Podium Audio.
