Lost and Found: The Taken Trilogy, Book 1 | [Alan Dean Foster]

Lost and Found: The Taken Trilogy, Book 1

Not so long ago Marcus Walker was just another young commodities trader in Chicago, working hard and playing harder. But that's all in the past, part of a life half forgotten-a reality that vanished when he was attacked while camping and tossed aboard a starship bound for deep space. Desperately, Walker searches for explanations, only to realize he's trapped in a horrifying nightmare that is all too real. Instead of being a rich hotshot at the top of the food chain, Walker discovers he's just another amusing novelty, part of a cargo of “cute” aliens from primitive planets....

Publisher's Summary

Not so long ago Marcus Walker was just another young commodities trader in Chicago, working hard and playing harder. But that's all in the past, part of a life half forgotten-a reality that vanished when he was attacked while camping and tossed aboard a starship bound for deep space.

Desperately, Walker searches for explanations, only to realize he's trapped in a horrifying nightmare that is all too real. Instead of being a rich hotshot at the top of the food chain, Walker discovers he's just another amusing novelty, part of a cargo of “cute” aliens from primitive planets - destined to be sold as pets to highly advanced populations in “civilized” regions of the galaxy.

Even if he weren't constantly watched by his captors, Walker has few options. After all, there is no escape from a speeding starship. Another man might resign himself to the inevitable and hope to be sold to a kindly owner, but not Walker. This former college football star has plenty of American ingenuity and no intention of admitting defeat, now or ever. In fact, he's only just begun to fight.

    "Entertaining, enjoyable adventure"

    Another reviewer mentioned that he was unhappy to find that the next two in this trilogy were not currently available. This did give me pause before purchase, but I'm glad I did. This was a good book, an enjoyable story, one which I would be likely to listen to again. It was enjoyable enough that I DID want to read the next book in the trilogy, and pulled out my kindle and bought the next two books in the series (and have read those as well).

    I often look for profound sci-fi, but have neglected the less literary fun tales which still stick with you and which still have layers of meaning in the story, and this book reminded me that, indeed, a good sci-fi is about the people in the story going through extraordinary situations, as well as new ways of considering things. It would make a good movie, if Hollywood wasn't so prone to screwing up good stories.

    "Loved it!"

    This book reminded me a bit of John Scalzi's way of writing; funny, interesting and with great characters. It's a story about a human abducted by aliens who is trying to figure out why was he abducted, together with many other different aliens. I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the series.

    "Where is the rest of the series?"
    Any additional comments?

    Why are the other two books in this series not available on Audible? I bought this book on sale for $4.95 --the sale was for first books in a series, but Audible doesn't have the rest of the series! A bit of bait and switch, there. C'mon Audible! You're better than that! Give us the other two books.... after all, this IS Alan Dean Foster!

    "A trilogy should mean 3 books?"

    I love this book and I like this writer. When J. J. Abbrams and Lenard Nimoy go to this guy to restart "Star Trek", that must say a lot about this writer. With that in mind, what happens when you start a trilogy and there is only one book recorded out of 3? My problem is with 2 non-recorded books and I'm dyslexic! What do I do and where is there blame to point too?

    Go figure I won't, I'm dyslexic!

    "Great fun"

    Fascinating treatment of alien abductions. I really enjoyed the vast variety of aliens and personalities. I also loved the interaction between the man and dog

    "I will definitely look forward to book two."

    This is a great book with an interesting story. It's not too hard of a read, and I really enjoy the writing style, even though it seems that the author is attempting to imitate Douglas Adams and not quite nailing it. The fact that the author is occasionally a bit more wordy than necessary is actually a positive thing, if you can believe it. I think it helps with the overall imagery of the story.

    I'm a grad student with very little time to edit reviews because I'm editing research papers. Forgive the typos. They're made with love.

    "I lost interest and never found it..."

    Perhaps this is for a certain listener. Clearly this wasn't for me. Obviously you should read the other reviews and make the choice for yourself but this book fell flat before it was half way over.

    It started off interestingly enough, and I liked where it was going until we had to wait. And wait. And wait for something new to happen. Sure little things did, but even when the story picked back up and things started moving, I just didn't care any more. I listened as the action of the end got going and just waited for it to be over. We were left hanging on a few things as well so I left this one a little... meh.

    Seems others liked it... perhaps it's just my preference. 2.5 stars

    I love to read. Always have. The life of a professional is too busy to do just one thing so I find audiobooks are the answer to my love of books and a busy life.

    "Entertaining"

    It was a pleasant story to pass time. The writing and humor were good. I generally like a bit more depth to the SciFi I read.

    "too intellectual for me"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I just cannot finish this book. The concept is good, but I think it too wordy and I that makes the story choppy.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Alan Dean Foster again?

    Based on this book, no.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator was good, however a little dry.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Lost and Found?

    all of them!
