Publisher's Summary

Jess was born a prisoner, grew up a prisoner, and at 16 knew he would die a prisoner. When his turn comes to try to break through the traps protecting a spaceship it seems his day to die has come. The ship, and others like it, have already claimed hundreds of prisoners' lives.

Instead he manages to avoid the traps and gain access to the ship with two other prisoners, beginning a frantic flight to freedom. Soon Jess finds himself loose in a brutal universe ruled by the Empire and riddled with pirates, slave traders, and worse. Can Jess manage to learn the rules of the universe and the capabilities of the ship he has stolen in time to stay alive?

    "Where's the rest!?!"

    This is a good book. But I have 45 minutes left and just realized the rest of the series isn't on audible. Where are the other books!?!?!

    "Very good story"

    The type of story that hooks you in. You just can't stop listening.
    Narrated very well.

    Story
    "Too much corn and cheese..."
    What would have made Wanderer's Escape better?

    Maybe a little humor and to slow down the progression of relationships.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Simon Goodson again?

    No. His writing was painfully corny to me. I could not finish this book.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Tone down the characters emotions and relationships to a level that isn't kinda of creepy.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is awful. I see why the rest of the series is not on Audible. It's cliche, cheesy, and feels.. Bland. Also the main character got attached to the other two prisoners way too quick. It was so weird.

    Story
    "Nice science fiction read."
    What did you love best about Wanderer's Escape?

    This book takes you on an interesting journey of an escaped slave. The characters are interesting and the ideas of the AI are interesting as well.

    The book addresses some adult themes but the author does so in a way that is discrete.
    I do not recall any objectionable language.

    It is truly nice to find an author that can tell an intriguing story without the need to appeal to the crude or obscene language or descriptions.

    I will be listening to the books that follow in the series.

    Story
    "More Love Novell than space opera"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    if you want to read "i love you" and "i dont now" and "he cried" and so on than be my guest. But if you want action scenes longer than the ouey douey scenes than buy a different book.


    What was most disappointing about Simon Goodson’s story?

    love story scenes 6 hours, action or flying or technical 2 hours


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    good narration


    What character would you cut from Wanderer's Escape?

    the main character


    Any additional comments?

    its an space opera a girl would write!
