Midge Fly and the End of The World

Rated 4.67/5 based on 6 reviews
Young Midge Fly and his best friend, Stick, are faced with the task of saving the world from an untimely (and untidy) demise; a task which is to some extent hampered by the fact that an 8-feet tall greenish mercenary by the name of Grobut, an extremely nasty Space Shuttle dealer, and the bulk of the Artooroian Fleet under the command of Admiral Voltor are all bent on stopping Midge and Stick.

Review by: l c on Dec. 14, 2013 :
well written in the spirit of the hitchhiker's guide...series, however a bit too lecxturing at times indicates that it is aimed at a younger audience which tends to get a bit tiresome to me being older. On the other hand - the story is interesting enough to have kept me finish it, so cudos to finding a balance by adding a cheeck-in-tongue kind of humour and intersting plot.

5 Stars for young readers. 4 Stars for adults.

This was a fun book, characters are at the age when the first girl boy kiss occurs, and seems to be written for that age group or a bit older. The plot surprises where a bit obvious to me, but they should be about write for the younger audience. The story is worth reading, even if you are old like me.

Full of great science, and as best I can tell there are no flaws in the current science or the future science. Readers are at some risk of getting educated while reading this engaging story.

If you enjoyed 'Hitchhikers guide to the...', download this e-book immediately – in my opinion, this book is better!
This is one of those science fiction novels where the universe isn't a big enough arena. This novel spreads across multi-universes and time as if a trip to a far distant planet, or the past, or the future, is as easy and accessible as stroll down the lane to the neighbour.
Sounds unlikely? Well, it isn't, not the way Ruben Fønsbo explains the principles and theories of time and space. He makes it sound so simple even mother would understand. (well, maybe not. Not if she's anything like mine.)
But this isn't a story about dry physics, this is a succulent tale about aliens and unsuspecting humans all caught up in an imaginative plot that kept me turning the pages from start to finish.
This is a 'fun' read, far superior to most other books in this genre, and I have no problem recommending it, no matter what genre you prefer.

Excellent work! This was all about FUN and it succeeded on a gazillion levels. Excellent editting job too, definitely a much more professional presentation than the majority of
stuff we see. Anxiously awaiting Midge's next adventure!

A friend of mine recommended this, and to cut a long story short, I loved it! A near-epic tale of action, sci-fi, suspense and friendship set in a variety of worlds and times. Witty, thrilling and moving, and very well written. Several times I caught myself laughing out loud, and even more times I lost sleep over this book for just wanting to read one more chapter. Several stories and viewpoints weave and intertwine, creating a tale which is so much more than traditional scifi. If you liked "The Hitch-hiker's Guide"-series, you will love this.

I'm a great Elvis fan and thought to myself "How can Elvis be in a Sci-fi book?", but it turns out he can! And lots of other persons and creatures can too. I love the parts with Elvis, of course, but also, the book is very, very well written, the plot is brillint, and the science in it is for real. I double checked a lot of the facts, and found them to be accurate, so maybe time travelling is possible after all.

I would have given it five stars but for the fact that I will have to wait for the sequel in order to hopefully read more about one or two of the book characters. The book is thoroughly enjoyable, funny, clever and very hard to put down once you've started reading. I would recommend it for teens (15+) and definitely adults.
