Any additional comments?

This book was provided free of charge in expectation of a fair review.

This could be considered a young adult book. Yet it had a lot of action throughout and kept you wondering how it would move next. There were many subtle twist to the plot.

It also had almost a slapstick sense of humor that came out in the most unexpected places and made you smile.

The premise of a young orphan from Iowa being the one to save the galaxy is a bit far fetched; but works well for this series. They stumble through their various adventures and seem to come out alive though all their classmates and population are not so lucky.

The narrator does a superb job with the various voices and it is easy to distinguish the characters. He also puts a great deal of feeling into them as they undertake their adventures and seem to be on the verge of destruction.

Even though I am not a young adult I enjoyed the book and look forward to listening to the remaining books in the series.
