Publisher's Summary

He was last in his class at the Earth Corps Fleet Academy.

Lieutenant Brian Huffman is seen by most of his Captains and peers as a joke, but through quick thinking he brought a rebellion to a violent end. Years later, although still not seen fit to be an officer by some, he was picked to solve a double murder. Or was he picked to be the next target?

Follow along as Brian and his friends fight their way to the stars to save mankind. Rushing from the frozen reaches of Neptune to the terror-filled tunnels of Mars stopping a second rebellion.

Helped by two Artificial Intelligences, one who thinks she's Irene Adler and her brother, who wanted to be Hal-9000. All under the watchful eye of the ship's cat with his own ideas of justice.

    Story
    "Loved it! Are there more?"

    What a fun "Who done it" mixed with Sci-fi! My two favorite genres seamlessly mixed together and NO LOVE INTEREST!!!! Now if only the author will write some sequels . . . I enjoyed listening to this book, both for the story itself and for presentation. The narrator's voice was soothing enough to relax me without putting me to sleep like so many do. The action in the storyline had me trying to figure out possible conclusions even in my sleep. Made for some interesting dreams over the weekend. Ha!

    Story
    "Indicted last in his class."
    What made the experience of listening to Last in His Class the most enjoyable?

    Told in first person, this mystery has a well developed main character, who could be written into a series of mysteries.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The likable main character, Brian Huffman, is a smart investigator, capable of solving a mystery.


    What about Stephen Day’s performance did you like?

    Nothing wrong was found, as Stephen Day made each character distinctive and important.


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

    The scenes in the story are vividly written, so I was able to imagine the events while I was listening. I especially liked the scene when Brian Huffman was recognized for
    his high performance and leadership.

    Story
    "Great audible sci-fi story!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Last in His Class to be better than the print version?

    I enjoyed the print version, and this is my first experience with an audible book. I really enjoyed listening to the narrator and visualizing the story as he related it. I don't know that I would say one version was better than the other......both were entertaining.


    What other book might you compare Last in His Class to and why?

    It is comparable to the Star Trek series of stories in that there is a distinctive military structure and a number of space age gadgets and equipment sprinkled throughout the story line. There are clearly "good guys" and "bad guys" as the story unfolds.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I got a kick out of the interaction between the main character and the ship's cat. It would never have occurred to me that space exploration would involve a character such as a ship's cat. It adds a degree of humanity and humor to the story.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I enjoyed the story as it unwound, and did laugh at times. No crying......it isn't allowed in outer space!


    Any additional comments?

    This was a well written sci-fi story, and the narrator did a great job of relating it in it's audible form. I highly recommend this book.

    "Great first book!"
    Where does Last in His Class rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's excellent. Not up to David Weber or Craig Alanson, but a solid first effort.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Last in His Class?

    The ending was pretty epic.


    Which character – as performed by Stephen Day – was your favorite?

    The main character was really good. It was 1st person, and Mr. Day did a good job capturing his dry wit.


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

    Yes. It wasn't too long. The pace was good. It moved from one event to the next with little wasted motion.
