Publisher's Summary

Larry enjoyed raising cattle on his Kansas farm, until the aliens arrived. He couldn't help himself; he was going for a ride with aliens from outer space! The aliens wouldn't tell him where he was going, how long he would be gone, or if he was ever coming back, but a space trip sounded like more fun than beer and burgers at Benny's Been There and Done That Bar and Grill. He had to go. Larry's ride into deep space wasn't just a Sunday jaunt. This space-faring species was in danger of being wiped off the galactic map. They offered Larry a ride because his assistance was vital to their survival, but they were xenophobic to the point of barely tolerating Larry in the same room. He was willing to help, but what could he do? Could he live long enough to save himself? What skills did Larry have to save an alien species threatened with annihilation? Every time he asked them for information, they stonewalled him.

    "Fun"

    A nice twist on Farmboy Abducted by Aliens. The farmboy is a grown man who has a sense of humor. He basically volunteers to be abducted; doesn't everyone want a chance to go into space? As a farmer he has the can-do attitude of people who have to problem solve everyday and take care of business.

    There are plenty of twists to keep the plot from becoming trite. The aliens are vegetarians who are terrified of a species that eats meat. The threat they need help with stems from their inability to think like a predator.

    The author has a nice sense of humor so it is an enjoyable read. Cows are telepaths that receive only, and then forget. Inanimate objects have opinions. So call it quirky and light. The aliens get their problem solved and he gets a spaceship. It won't win writing awards. Some plot points are strained. I didn't really buy the ending but it isn't a deal breaker.

    "don't waste your money."

    the story is stupid and seems to drone on forever. there seems to be no point to it. the narrator is horrible and seems to be reading it and trying to be cute.

    "huh?"

    what's up with the anti government thing at the end? the story was okay but the story got a little fox news-ie at the end which soured my view.
