    "Irreverent take on sci fi staples"

    Tongue in cheek but a lot of fun.
    Story moves along and has a number of cool surprises. The characters are also very vivid. Liked this.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Galaxy Blues?

    I enjoyed the entire story.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene where the pot cookies were consumed.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It would be a great listen for a long distance road trip.


    Any additional comments?

    As always, Allen Steele has produced a great story. Great if you have read or listened to one story in the series, or all of them. I 'Highly' (hee hee) recommend this book.
