Publisher's Summary

After interstellar con man Rex Nihilo hijacks a cargo freighter on a whim, he decides that he, and his long-suffering robot sidekick Sasha, have found their calling as space pirates. But when the ship's cargo turns out to be a cryogenically frozen religious fanatic who holds the secret to a vast galactic conspiracy, Rex and Sasha find themselves on the run from real pirates - as well as agents of the oppressive Malarchy, crazy space cultists, and the Ursa Minor mafia. If Rex is going to get out of this jam alive, he might just have to save the galaxy - again.

This edition of Aye, Robot also contains the complete audiobook, The Yanthus Prime Job.

Great Story with Bonus Novella, Recording needs review.

Another great story in the Rex Nihilo universe. Funny, fast-paced, and inventive. This audible version includes a bonus novella starring Pepper Melange. The recording does need to be re-edited. The quality is fine but there are several instances of repeated words and repeated sentences. These can be distracting and take you out of the moment.

Space!

What a fun story! I really enjoyed the continuing adventures of Rex Nihilo and Sasha. After listening to the first book and LOVING the narration by Kate Rudd I was initially disappointed with the narration from JD Ledford, but as the story went on it grew on me more. Though I still hope they get Rudd bak for the next book. Either way I'm looking forward to more space adventures with Rex and crew.

Fun, but not as good as the first

I loved the first book! The second is fun, with great narration, & new characters that I hope we hear me from. We also got some great character development at the end setting us up for the next book. Overall though, that's the thing, book two feels like a course correction & prep for what comes next.

Insanely funny.

This audiobook was full of chaotic ridiculousness, laugh out loud confusion, and comedic characters that make your eyes roll while smiling.

"Aye, Robot" is a crazy spacefaring adventure of pure comedy. While it is technically a sequel to "Starship Grifters" and still features the main characters, Sasha and Rex Nihilo, "Aye, Robot" doesn't really require listening to the first book in order to fully appreciate it. Laughter is the likely outcome either way.

The narrator for this audiobook is J.D Ledford and if she sounds a bit robotic at first, well, that's intentional; This story is told from the first person perspective of Sasha, Rex Nihilo's loyal but unappreciated robot sidekick. J.D Ledford's vocal range becomes more apparent and more impressive as the audiobook introduces more and more quarky characters; frustrated robots, drunken pirates, bug aliens, irritated old men, pious cult members, parrots...the list goes on. When you finally get to a bonus short story featuring a side character, Pepper, the strength of this narrator's talent is very obvious. There were a few instances of audio editing errors when a line is spoken twice, but these were easily ignored in light of everything else.

This audiobook is very highly recommended to anybody who needs a good clean laugh. There is no intellectual science fiction here. It's all goofy comedic gold centered around the insane antics of a theif, liar, and wannabe pirate in space.

Good, but different narrator

This is an excellent sequel in the Rex Nihilo series, but it is a different narrator. It's a good narrator, very similar to the first. but still jarring at first if you listen to them back -to-back. Put something else in between them and you might not notice.

Even better than the 1st

Very funny. Highly entertaining. If you're looking for some serious hard sci-fi that's certain to become a classic, thought provoking work of art then this is not the book for you. But if you are looking for some light sci-fi that is fairly predictable and makes you laugh out loud often then this is definitely the right choice. The humor is great, the writing solid, the narration is spot on. No complaints whatsoever.

Just Fun

This whole series is just a lot of fun. It's packed with humor and, although it might be a little too slapstick for some taste, it works for me. It's nice every now and then to have a story that isn't so serious Inn its violence and Terror. I recommend it.

Still just plain funny...

I totally loved it it was a great book and wasn't as funny as the first one the first one was to die on the floor laughing while you're listening. but let me tell you don't go ahead and buy the Pepper Melange story that they have here. mainly because it's at the End of This Book for free a really cool story.

Other than that it's really great fun and there's a great Cliffhanger at the end.

Foundation Meets Hitch Hiker's Guide

Great narration and fun story. It has the humor of Adams' Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy and some of the intrigue of Asimov's Foundation. Audible 20 Review Sweepstakes Entry

Fantastic Narration & Story!

As good as book one and possibly better with J.D. Ledford’s talented performance! Rex Nihilo gets better and better!

THEY'RE BAaaaaaCK!!!

After a 3 year break, Rex and Sasha are at it again!

Rex decides to take a break from get-rich-quick schemes, double-dealing, double-crossing, theft, prison-breaks and the general mayhem and confusion that ensues and pursue a more rewarding and reputable career... piracy!

The new narrator, J.D. Ledford does a good job but I miss Kate Rudd's performance, from the first book.
