    " Another episode in a series that I really enjoy. Science Fiction is one of my guilty pleasures and this book was worth the indulgence. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bryan457 | 8/16/2013

    " Still good, but my least favorite of the series so far. I did like the ending. Write some more soon, please. "

    " Takes a long time to get to the interesting parts. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Claudia | 6/12/2013

    " I don't understand even the teeniest bit of the science, but, these books are fun, and I like the people, so I persevere. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Miles | 5/25/2013

    " The humor that was notable in the previous books of the series overflows here. It was over the line for me, becoming both unbearably silly and distracting from the story. Read it if you're a completionist, I'd say. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leons1701 | 3/29/2013

    " More Ringo/Taylor silliness and man, does this one get silly at times. I'm sort of hoping for more books in this series, but I'm not sure I could actually take a higher level of crazy and still enjoy it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ron | 3/7/2013

    " Fun space opera! Interesting music references. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nihonjoe | 10/5/2012

    " This was a fun book, and had even more tongue-in-cheek humor than the previous three. Having the humor made the sciencey bits even more fun and memorable, too. I really hope this series continues as it's been great fun. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Myles | 8/10/2012

    " Book #4 in the Looking Glass series. I really love all of Ringo's books, but there's something about a story where they name the ship Alliance Space Ship (A.S.S.) Vorpal Blade and where an alien artifact can change everyone around it into anime characters. A little short, but a fun read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jason | 7/24/2012

    " This series just gets better and better...I wanted the next book as soon as I finished the last page. "
