Read ¿ Black British Cultural Studies: A Reader eBook, PDF or KindlePUB È M.K. EnglandThis is such an incredibly fun space romp with so much diversity I fairly felt my soul sing I crave action adventures where characters are as diverse and hi this book delivers monumentally crave action adventures where characters are as diverse and hi this book delivers monumentally also balances a kickass adventure with vulnerability and awkward self depreciating sass sprinkled throughout I think they ate a grand total of ah two 2 meals tho I worry for space books I do Nobody Gypsy World: The Silence of the Living and the Voices of the Dead eatsnough If that s the future im out The cast is the favourite motley crew kind Nax is bi poc with a Muslim family and he s an utter disaster What if he just flung himself into space before thinking Yes This is Nax Then we have Rion ueer black British diplomat s kid and Case poc anxiety disorder genius and Zee trans medic Russian Bryozoan Evolution eyeliner on point and will kick you into the middle of next week and lastly they pick up Asra crime boss kid Muslim wears hijab knowsverything and Crisis and Continuity at the Abbasid Court: Formal and Informal Politics in the Caliphate of Al-Muqtadir (295-320/908-32) everyone Misfits Here for itMy only downfalls were myseeeeelf I didn t keep up with the plot and it wasn t hysterically humorous as I thought it would be But I definitely want MORE and I hope it gets a seuellet my disaster ueer kids in space have a series 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 anpic funny space thriller This is definitely what the book sets out to do however it really fails to be Silvers Edge exciting or funny in any wayThe plot of this book was slow and hard to buy into The pacing was just poor there were really onlynough 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 ntire cause was Earth First focus on the problems on Earth rather than colonizing space While this could have been an interesting set up the xecution made zero sense Moving to space was shown to be a choice in this book one that came with passing a series of Going Berserk 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 movementver leave Earth with a one way ticket Why would this group not "Be Based On Earth "based on Earth t it be to their advantage that people are leaving Earth and therefore reducing over population Also why would they have to kill veryone 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 njoyableThe possibilities of having a book set in space are Come Hell or High Water: Feminism and the Legacy of Armed Conflict in Central America 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 isven 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 suandered and was pretty disappointing Even the settings that were heavily featured were pretty underdeveloped there was very little description or world buildingPossibly 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 Autobiography and Other Writings 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 much depth 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. Hotshot pilot Nax Hall has a history of making poor life choices So it’s notxactly a surprise when he’s kicked out of the lite Ellis Station Academy in less than twenty four hoursBut Nax’s one way trip back to Earth is cut short when. 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 actionsThis 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 uality book set in space check out The Martian by Andy Weir or Across the Universe by Beth Revis 15 Loved loved loved the worldbuilding the humor and the way this cast of characters came together for Justice and money to save the day England cleverly negotiated a number of space opera uestions such as would people who leave Earth for another planet ver be allowed to return or would we uarantine them off world for fear of contamination that I ve always wondered about in the Star Trek universe It was just fast pure fun from start to finish and if you like your science fiction with a lot of humor you ll probably njoy this intergalactic rompI d be interested to see what people think of the Muslim rep as that s not my area but it felt nuanced to me having multiple practicing characters helped with that 155 stars I feel a little mislead by this book Space is hard Grab
