Publisher's Summary

Free Spacer, a light-hearted romp, centers on "spacer" Aaron Maxwell as he explores his end of the galaxy with his ship the Achilles Bane and the less than accommodating AI, Genie. Along the way, he meets the blue feathered Zemmings, a polite epicurean species for whom food means much more than mere sustenance but whose tastes definitely leave something to be desired. He renews his friendship with an old Jarmooth platoon mate only to find himself unexpectedly an accomplice to bride stealing and ship theft. He also discovers the small cyclopean race of Hellions whose tragic plight inspires the good-hearted spacer to make every effort to free them. Then, there are the brutal and acquisitive, if oh so pious Gar, who seem to always turn up to complicate Aaron's life. But ultimately while attempting to rescue the marooned survivors of a Zeno-archaeological expedition, he finds that there may be things in the universe more dangerous to his way of life than the Gar!

    Story
    "Old fashioned sci-fi"
    What did you like best about Aaron Maxwell? What did you like least?

    It reminded me of the science fiction of the 1960s. It was a little too much like early science fiction


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    It had a lot of different descriptions of the aliens. It did not have an interesting plot.


    Did Jeffrey Kafer do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Adequate


    Did Aaron Maxwell inspire you to do anything?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    This books was provided free in exchange for a review. It has a very old fashioned feel and would have gone down well 50 years ago; but I fear I have progressed in my science fiction reading desires since those days.

    Story
    "Lighthearted and easy to listen to"
    If you could sum up Aaron Maxwell in three words, what would they be?

    Cheesy Sci-Fi


    What other book might you compare Aaron Maxwell to and why?

    With roots in other lighter Sci-Fi books, it almost feels like a mixture of Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, the computer game Space Quest, and Lost in Space. Cheesy silly at times but still enjoyable to listen to.

    Story
    "Great fun!"

    Smooth story line and well developed characters with wiseassery, badassery, and generally good fun. Sure, it's Sci-Fi, but not the kind of thing that you need to be a techno-geek to enjoy.
    Audio performer does a fine job of rounding out the personalities and giving voice to the hero's snarkisms.
    I received this book free through AudioBook Blast/Free Audiobook Giveaways on FB.

    Story
    "Good scifi in a classic style"

    Aaron Maxwell: Free Spacer is some great, classic style science fiction with great depictions of multiple alien species. Not overly focused on technologies or pet political issues, the stories have a timeless quality like those of Heinlein or Asimov. The one downside would be the all but misogynistic attitude of the main character, but that can be chalked up to realistic human flaw. There are hints by the end of the book that the neither the author nor Maxwell truly believe that women are the emotionally driven wrecks that Maxwell initially describes. Nevertheless, one spends half the book picturing all the females in this book running around with beehive hairdos and classic Star Trek skirts.
