    Well I have finally finished this book I will be the first to say however that the time taken to read it is by no means a reflection of the book I will admit that i struggled to get in to the storyline and it didnt quite have the same level of irreverence to so many science fiction genres and famous stories as the earlier books but it finds its way back and by the end of it its back on its ch...

    I think I am probably done with this series It has been steadily slipping, but the humour has been good enough to be enjoyable Here the plot was all over the place, the first part of the book being a pastiche of Joseph Conrad s Heart of Darkness, or perhaps the film Apocal...

    Smith strikes againCup of tea Space Captain Smith has reapeatedly entertained since the first one nearly ten years ago This one isn t quite as bracingly funny as the original, but is a worry addition to the series.

    I am a complete sucker for Apocalypse Now and so when I saw that this the latest of Toby Frost s Space Captain Smith adventures riffed heavily on that excellent film and on Conrad s heart of Darkness which inspired it I was of course going to go and buy the book.Pleased I did His little band of adventurers plucky but slightly nonplussed Smith, Proud Warrior Race guy Suruk, Polly the biscuit loving artificial person pilot, the hippie psychic and Smith s girlfriend Rhianna, and the I am a complete sucker for Apocalypse Now and so when I saw that this the latest of ...

    How can you not like a book that has the British Empire in space fuelled by tea a war dinosaur instead of an elephant with a castle on its back instead of a howdah, a spaceship that s seen far better days captained by Smith personification of the idiotic British colonial officer and crewed by his dreadlocked hippy girlfriend, his best friend comrade in arms who is essentially Predator and a pony loving android pilot who only shows bravery in defence of her blue pony friends This is a r How can you...

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here The book starts off as Apocalypse Now and arrives at something like the climatic Battle of Minas Tirith via Carry on up the Khyber And all set in the 25th Century of the Great British Space Empire Yep, it s a must read for the puns, geek culture references and sepia tinted Victoriana Read in wonder at the cliff edge suspense that does involve lemmings.And who would have thought Space Captain Smith had a penchant for Rhianna dressed up ...

    If you re looking for a sensible review stop reading now and go have a cup of tea instead.After a couple of slightly wobbly books, this one is getting back to form The jokes are a littlesubtle but then they d have to be by book 5, right Some of them were brilliant and made me chuckle out loud The whole business was Carveth and the E qui was brilliant Friendship is indeed Magic.The Yull are a good enemy Not as funny as Gertie, but much better than the Edenites I also liked the d If you re looking for a sensible review stop re...

    Another enjoyable, blood soaked odyssey through the British Space Empire with Smith and his oddball crew as they continue the fight against the Yull and other miscreants Carveth comes into her own in this novel, of course Rhianna, Su...

    Back to form, I think is a good summary The last book or even two seemed to be running out of steam somewhat This was a good story with some character changes if not necessarily growth as such , rather than the predictable responses to the same old situations.In short I...
