Listener Opinions

    " Also really fun. Expands on the already awesome universe of Larklight, except instead of evil white spiders from the beginning of time, this time we have...the MOOBS. Time travel, romance, evil starfish, sea bathing, and evil French people! ...so much fun... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Roshni | 2/4/2014

    " Not a great book, fantasy, but did not at all stand out "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sean | 2/4/2014

    " The pacing is better here than in Larklight , but the thrill of the setting has worn off. Still lots of fun, but not as innovative as the first instalment. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 John The Totally Awesome | 2/1/2014

    " If I ever meet Reeve I am going to punch him in the mouth. As an American, I Inherently loathe all the idiot authors who make the American Revolution fail, and intend to strike back at them in a future novel entitled Burning Skies. But until then, may Reeves be condemned to eternal torment and may bookworms gnaw at his entrails till the fires of Hell consume utterly. "

    " I really liked this second installation of the Larklight trilogy. I really love the narration by Arthur and at times Myrtle; their voices are very much characteristic of the period but never take attention from the story or action. Another fun, rousing adventure of (sometimes reluctant) daring-do with great and helpful illustrations. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cathy | 1/29/2014

    " More of the same jolly good fun as Larklight -- huzzah! I enjoyed this tremendously, although it didn't seem to have quite the scope of the first book, which took us from the edges of the universe to Kew Gardens. Art and Myrtle, however, are as hilarious as ever. How I should like a Nereid bathing costume of my own! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 I am Dangerous | 1/24/2014

    " It took me really out of this world!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Purlewe | 1/22/2014

    " WOW! What a ride. I am really enjoying these steampunk novels for kids. I want to read the last one and then buy the set for my niece. Thank goodness someone is writing books for kids these days that use words with older meaning and more than 2 syllables. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Berseker | 1/16/2014

    " A really fun, light, entertaining read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Traci Haley | 1/11/2014

    " I think, perhaps, that Starcross was even more enjoyable than Larklight. The style of writing is incredibly clever and the audiobook version had an absolutely wonderful narrater! Love the series, hope it continues! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janie Hepler | 12/30/2013

    " I love these books! I'll definitley recommend them to my friends. The off-the-wall Victorian humour is awesome, and I just love the writing, The only thing that bothered me is how mean Art is to Myrtle. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy M | 12/29/2013

    " Forgot to mark this one as read. These books are hilarious and clever! Love them. :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathy | 12/24/2013

    " I didn't like it quite as well as LARKLIGHT, but it was a good sequel in the same vein. Much more time travel this time, but the humor is still as enjoyable as ever. I got caught laughing several times. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Georgia | 12/12/2013

    " really really good. better than the first one! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Meredith | 12/11/2013

    " Really, this is one of the funniest books I've ever read, and it's the origin of my obsession with Moob. This sequel to "Larklight" finds Art, Myrtle, and the rest of the gang again fighting sinister alien forces in outer space. Maybe even better than the first. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mirm | 9/19/2013

    " Loved It! so creative! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elevetha Houre | 8/31/2013

    " Good humorous read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kalyn | 4/18/2013

    " All too often the sequal to a book fails to live up to the greatness of the first. Such is not the case here. Starcross was an excellent read and, like Larklight, not just for kids. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Arwen | 12/3/2012

    " Another tale of the far reaches of space. Silly but fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 10/22/2012

    " I thought this one was even better than the first. Full of adventure and humor. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Catherine Mustread | 9/17/2012

    " Action and adventure continue as Art Mumby and his mother and sister, Myrtle, battle the evil Moobs and an undercover French agent in #2 of Larklight series. On to #3 Mothstorm which is due back to the library soon. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Misty | 8/20/2012

    " This story is hilarious. It has such Douglas Adams moments, I totally love it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Yati | 5/18/2012

    " Huzzah! This was one jolly good romp. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Samantha Hastings | 12/17/2011

    " I enjoy these Victorian science fiction space adventures. I find Art (the narrator) to be quite endearing and I absolutly adore Myrtle who isn't endearing at all. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeannette | 12/10/2011

    " Not as good as the first in this series, but still enjoyable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jess | 6/8/2011

    " Fun sequel to Larklight. I loved how Art still can't understand what Jack sees in Myrtle. Although the flap description is wrong: Art's the younger of the two, not Myrtle. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Morgan | 3/22/2011

    " Another rollicking adventure through space and time for loyal subjects of the British Empire! =^_^= "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandst | 3/13/2011

    " As awesome and imaginative as the first book. Mrs. Emily Mumby kicks ass. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 2/19/2011

    " it lost a bit of its grip compared to the first one, but the humour is more spicy this time! =3 "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathy | 10/23/2010

    " I didn't like it quite as well as LARKLIGHT, but it was a good sequel in the same vein. Much more time travel this time, but the humor is still as enjoyable as ever. I got caught laughing several times. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cyndie | 9/7/2010

    " I found this and Larklight on the shelf in the children's wing of the library. They are unexpected and fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 TheRose | 8/27/2010

    " Every bit as funny as the first one! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 A. Safdar | 8/16/2010

    " [It was:] Dull. I had to slave through it simply for the pride of attaining it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ami | 6/17/2010

    " This was a quick enjoyable book. I love the pictures through out. I really thinks my kids will like it. Great continuation of the story with characters I have come to enjoy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 1/30/2010

    " Not quite as much fun as Larklight, but has the advantage of MOOBS!! Moooob. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matthew William | 1/28/2010

    " Very funny, but it's written as if it was made in the 1800's, such as "realize" is spelled "realise". "
