One thought on “Wanderer's Escape

  1. Doug Hoffman

    Wanderer s Escape is a puzzling book It starts off being a juvenile, at least it would seem so due to the main character Jeff, but later descends into hormone driven sex among, well, some juveniles The action is fast and plentiful but the characters are mostly one dimensional The females are emotional and not overly rational the males are schizophrenic, offering fatherly advice one minute and trying to kill the hero and his friends the next The main problem is the main character, a 16 year old w [...]

    I just can t go any furtherAfter reading eight chapters, I couldn t read another word The style of the writing was difficult to follow, words seemed in the wrong order so often I found myself re reading sections than once just to understand what the author was trying to say.Another reviewer said the characters were one dimensional I think that was being generous The events of the story were disjointed, like watching a movie while skipping forward minutes at a time The only part of the story I l [...]

    I got this book as a free book through Book Bub and it was better than I thought It s not great, but the characters are interesting and the world they are in, while a bit simplistic, has some potential for some interesting stories I will be purchasing the second one to see where it goes I will only buy the third one if the second demostrates some of the potential of the first.

  5. Gail Hitchcock

    Very good story Very good story Couldn t put it down until it was finished Going to look for from this author Would definitely recommend it

  6. Lucinda

    This spectacular sci fi space opera is an explosion of eccentricity and mind blowing imaginative vision I simply loved this riveting read that was dramatic, exciting and full of remarkable premise Both the strong storyline and the characters were fantastic, hence I am now eager to read and look forward to the next instalment within the Wanderer s Odyssey Action packed and full on from the very beginning, I was sucked into the fighting and intense drama that built to an electrifying climatic end [...]

  7. Steven

    Well, here I am again reading the first book in a series and then wondering what I was thinking My first thought when I started this book was that it read incredibly similar to something I would have read back in high school or junior high And then my next thought was that it sounded incredibly similar to something I would have written back in high school Which is to say that for that 12 18 age range this is probably a great book, but maybe I m just too old for it.The plot is simple Jess, who wa [...]

  8. Paul Middleton

    I am a bit of a Sci fi nut, and I particularly love stories that are on the fringes of the established norms that the writer is portraying Stories with dysfunctional characters Stories that have a gritty feel about them Stories where the protagonist are often on the wrong side of the law Stories about a motley vagabond crew trying to often just survive That is why I preferred Blake 7 over Star Trek, and years later, found similar genera s in the new revamped Battlestar Galactica, and then the fa [...]

  10. Cat

    I liked a lot of this book I thought there was a fair amount of action and the challenges faced by Jess and crew were believable The ship being so advanced technologically made almost impossible tasks a snap That was a little too convenient, but whatever The romance aspect of the book seemed a littledull easy immature Jess is a young captain, and he does his best He isn t restrained by years of training on how to fly or what s acceptable, and his ship is certainly allowing him to do just about a [...]

  11. Fred Read

    This is one of the best Si fi s i have ever read Great adventure, lots of action, some romance and FANTASTIC IMAGINATION Love to see the underdog win love to see his relationship with the ship and how it develops Sure their s some holes in the story like with all the advanced technology in this futuristic time, why would the injured person be using a wheelchair That s like back to the 1800 s A few small glitches like this aside, this was a book to really carry you away on a fantastic adventure C [...]

  12. Nicolas Wilson

    Review by Nic s wife.I was pleasantly surprised by the story, but there were some technical issues to the writing that I d love to see fixed, like an over abundance of adverbs, run on sentences, and some issues with possessive apostrophes.The world set out definitely intrigued me, though I would love to see some science behind the mechanisms of it, since in parts it read like a superhero story instead of a space opera The passages of grown ups talking about sex could be pruned back a bit, for m [...]

    I must say, wasn t sure at first but what a great book, hoping the second and third one clears up a lot of questions, but thats a kind of book I like the story keeps going and stays interesting About to read all your books, very impressed so far.

  15. Darren

    It was a good book I liked it a lot It was full of action adventure It was a very well written book I hope to read books by this author.

  16. Alison

    Great coming of age adventure Great adventure in a YA vibe Jessie at times seemed a bit soft and young considering his life as a slave but overall was a fun read.

  17. Shell Shearer Swinscoe

    really not my usual read, but thought I would give it a try love it storyline the characters are fantastic need to read the next one now

  18. Michael

    This is a pretty good book one of a multi part space opera series and is a fairly quick read The author does a nice job of getting you quickly into the events and his characters, and most of the future technology is something you can get your arms around and believe you will have a few Walter Mitty type moments as you start daydreaming the what if if you had some of the future technologies at your disposal The description of the future s society, however, is a little depressing with the rampant [...]

  19. Daniel

    The writing and emotional development is a bit clipped however, it s a decent story Jess at his best, maneuvering the action were probably the best segments but there were also points of solid exposition and even some of the dialogue smoothed.However, some of it smoothed to the point of stretched inference as to the speaker and it was often stilted The characters were not strongly compelling, and emotional development was abrupt which is not a criticism of the characters emotional reactions.The [...]

  20. Bob

    A fun readAs stories of intelligent space ships go, this was quirky and a bit far fetched but definitely fun Good character developement made their actions and the story believable and enjoyable.

  21. Jim Calhoun

    Good little space opera.Really you don t need much than the title of this review But for 20 words,funny, interesting, fast paced, easy reading.

  22. Francisco Ramirez

    well took awhile to read, since it wasn t that good still left curious about the wanderer so I know I ll eventually read the second Might be good while from now though

  23. Jim

    A very good, if not run of the mill science fiction story This is the kind of sci fi book that just about anyone who has ever read a sci fi book could imagine writing I doubt that there s not a sci fi out there who hasn t wished they could stumble upon a fantastically advanced alien spaceship and immediately find themselves linked as the pilot That would be so cool I ve thought about that when I was much younger In this story, Jess, a very young man who is also a slave, has been a slave all his [...]

  24. Randy Grossman

    I think the book was reasonably goodI suppose you have to be a BIG Star Trek or Star Wars fan to understand some of the terminology, but it doesn t hurt the basic interest of the story Pretty clean overallight use of foul language with certain characters and a Adult PG love story, nothing blatant I may pursue the series, but have other interests in reading.

  25. Sonja Bristow

    This book was about 100 pages too long Redundancy abounds I just became and disinterested as I read.

  26. Jay

    It s a tough universe out thereI ll say it up front My biggest problem with this book is the portrayal of a starfaring, technologically advanced society, where slavery is common Even if such a practice were not morally repugnant, it would not make economic sense, given the availability of automation.That aside, the book was an interesting read Mr Goodson managed to surprise me a number of times with unexpected plot twists He also managed to portray the innocence and vulnerability of his younger [...]

  27. Kathrin Hutson

    This book opened strongly in a world of which I was eager to see The minute I read about Jess mind link connection with the advanced ship, I knew this was going to be a great book The ideas behind the main character s relationship with the semi sentient spaceship were awesome, but admittedly, I was left wanting , both in the complexity of the plot, characterization, and any driving force behind the motivations for the entire book.The characters were just different enough that I knew who was who [...]

  28. Kaitlin

    I was lucky enough to receive this as a giveaway on but this doesn t affect my review I also received a beautifully written and very sincere and heartfelt letter from Simon Goodson himself which I really appreciated and was glad to get So the book on the surface is a sci fi adventure full of action scenes and drama but there is to it than just that There s a whole underlying meaning which is linked to freedom and slavery and the effects upon a community of these conditions It s set in a space s [...]
