Publisher's Summary

An Irishman in space. Hoards of alien technological treasures to be discovered. What could go wrong?

Don't answer that....

Fletcher Connolly hasn't got a lot to lose. Since he and half the galaxy signed on to the rat race of the technological relics trade, Fletch has come to terms with the idea that he will join the ranks of unlucky explorers that perish light years from home without a dime to his name.

But bankruptcy is a great motivator. With friends and family counting on him to strike it rich, Fletch embarks on an unwilling quest for alien treasure. His decrepit exploration ship, the Skint Idjit, and her successor, the Intergalactic Bogtrotter, plunge disastrously through the wildest regions of the Interstellar Railroad...from an uninhabited planet appropriately named Suckass...to a deliberately misnamed mafia-run planet known as Arcadia...to a rogue planet inhabited by aliens resembling cuddly teddy bears...to a moon covered with giant cacti...and, ultimately, to the supermassive black hole in the center of the galaxy, where Fletch's terrible judgment comes back to bite him in the rear for the last time.

Epic catastrophes and belly laughs pile up breathlessly in this delightful comic sci-fi adventure, a worthy successor to The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

This complete edition of The Reluctant Adventures of Fletcher Connolly on the Interstellar Railroad contains all four episodes of Fletch's unlucky career:

  • Skint Idjit
  • Intergalactic Bogtrotter
  • Banjaxed Ceili
  • Supermassive Blackguard

Felix R. Savage is the NYT, WSJ, and USAT best-selling author of the Earth's Last Gambit Quartet and many other books. This is by far the funniest one.

So much fun!

I'm calling this narrator "Nick O'Podehl" from now on. He's always fantastic but this performance of a really witty and fun book is brilliant. So much to love - CBs on the LP, Fletch's American accent brought out to save his skin, wicked corporate overlords, fancy dress parties, tree cats. Really glad I spent this credit.

Nonstop entertainment

Any additional comments?

This book was great. I listened to it all in one go without stopping, chuckling to myself the whole way. I really hope that there are more stories of the Connolly family, especially Fletcher.

Super awesome!!!!

I'd already read the first two books in this series, and liked them. The humor is fun, and the characters are memorable. I'm already a fan of this author's Elfrida Goto series, or whatever he's calling it now that it's past book 3. This series appealed to me in the same way. There's humor, grand adventures, and ALIENS! I absolutely loved these. I would recommend to anyone who likes the original Star Wars trilogy, and wished there was a little more humor (NOT Space Balls level, just a little more than Lucas felt necessary), or just wished their sci-fi was a bit more tongue-in-cheek. The voice actor sounds familiar, and I will definitely be looking for more from him, as well.

Great listen!

If you like witty humourous SciFi then this book is for you. Irishman in space, what more could you want?
We need more Audible! Mr. Podehl does a great job as narrator.
