I really enjoyed this story! The characters are well built and very believable. I did get several laughs at Perry’s humor. Where can I get my own AI bird?
Other than some colorful language, this reads like a young adult piece of, uhm, sci-fi. The writing is childish and the story itself is, well, not interesting. I gave it up about page 79. My advice, don’t bother.
I really enjoyed this book.The characters are fun and have personality.The premise is a stretch, but you get sucked in for a great ride.I’m looking forward to the next book and I hope an ongoing series.
Excellent, this author (or authors) can ‘tell’ a story as well or better than the best. The actual story itself, in my opinion, has a few holes but it was nonetheless fun and enjoyable. Overall I found this book… refreshing.
Good characters, good action, hopefully good romance, funny one liners and good action. You will not be disappointed in getting this book.
Good balance of sci-fi and realism. Enough fantasy to be a good escape but not grossly unrealistic.Characters are likable. Interactions are mostly relatable.
