Publisher's Summary

Latest novel by best-selling horror and suspense author, Iain Rob Wright!

The Happiest Place in the Universe...

Grand Galaxies is the most expensive amusement park ever created, built on the surface of the moon. For a decade now, rich families and honeymooning couples have gone there to have the time of their lives, and no one has ever returned unhappy. But communications with the moon has been lost. Someone needs to go up there and see what's wrong.

Commander Boss Sharman is the man for the job, SABA's most respected leader, but he might end up regretting his decision to bring along his daughter, Lexi, for the mission. Something has gone very wrong at Grand Galaxies, and once Boss and his team travel the 238,900 miles to the moon, they might find that there's no way of getting back home again.

A fun Zombie read!

This was such fun! I mean, Zombies on the moon!! How awesome is that??

When communications between Earth and Grand Galaxies amusement park ceases, Commander ‘Boss’ Sharman and his crew are sent to investigate and see what's happened. They arrive to a seemingly abandoned park, well apart from the blood thirsty monsters shadowing their every move.

I think if you go into this with no expectations then you will enjoy it more. As I said, it's a story of Zombies on the moon! We also have Robots gone wild ;) It's pure B list movie stuff, but o much fun to listen to.

The characters and plot were well written and developed. Each of the few characters we deal with here were awesome. I really liked Lexi. Her dad is Boss, but she holds her own throughout the story. She is brave, smart and kick ass.

The plot was fast paced. I loved the idea of an amusement park on the moon, how cool would that be!! Lol. The way the virus came to be on the moon is quite believable, (if you can suspend normal belief for a while ;) ) and was really fun to read. This is the first book I've read by this author, but it won't be my last!!

Nigel Patterson brought the book alive. He gave each character their own tone and had the right tone for the right situation.

*I received a copy of this for review. This in no way affects my thoughts.*

Space Horror

Any additional comments?

It started out interesting, and then it turned into just another zombie story, If I had known that before I started reading, It was a fast and easy read I'm a fan of most of the zombie stories. and enjoyed this audiobook

This book was pretty good. I felt like it ended too soon, but I hope there is a book 2.

Space Zombies

This book has zombies in space. I mean... is there anything else to say? Seriously though, it was a fun story with lots of suspense. I enjoyed listening to it.

Entertaining

I love listening to Nigel Patterson read Ian Rob Wright's stories. This one was pretty good. I don't think anyone would be blown away with any twists or shocking revelations. I would imagine, this day in age, with all the literature out there, it gets hard to keep everyone guessing. It is a solid story that I enjoyed listening to.

Excellent read and bought to listen 2x

I don't like zombie books., except by this author because he uses them in a clever way. Zombies in space is not what I mean to enbody "a clever way". It's that they are not the sole obstacle. The zombies actually are the simplest of all the good guys problems. I am vague to avoid spoilers but if you give it a try, you'll understand what I am explaining...and the ending... Whoa! Seriously awesome but not at all what I expected and this is a very good 2-part "Whoa!" and "WHAA?" The author really takes you on a thrill ride and I hope you love it..

Another great read

Iain is now one of, if not my favourite author. Again, another book of his I really enjoyed. Grand Galaxy sounds amazing, would love to go somewhere like that. At least, until all hell breaks loose. Even though it's set in a different universe, you can almost imagine people going there on a rescue mition. One thing I love about Iain's writing, is that his books never seem to go the way I expect them to. This was no exception. My favourite discriptions were that of the park, my favourite characters the humanoids. I really enjoyed those. If you love books which are si-fi mixed with horror as I do, read this.

Garbage

Terrible writing coupled with a poor choice of narrator made this unfinishable. Found myself cringing throughout.

Zombies in space

Would you consider the audio edition of 2389: A Space Horror Novel to be better than the print version?

The great narration by Nigel Patterson and the story telling of Iain Rob Wright make this audio better than the print version for me.

What does Nigel Patterson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Great narration which brings the story and the characters to life.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The ending are you ever free?
