About Jim Walker

Most of my writing centers around the West Coast of Canada, my love for the Rockies and travel. My books reflect the unusual and the exciting one can discover in the most mundane.

Review by: James Jenkins on Feb. 1, 2016 :
I liked the premise and I enjoyed the parts that I read that built into the plot of the story, the parts unrelated to the plot that I suspect were supposed to be character development, I found boring. Rather generic husband and wife stuff, I found myself skipping through those sections, then soon I was missing the couple paragraphs of plot development scattered here and there, and having to go back and find them. I just got to be to much work to skip the parts that were not engaging. Read/scanned less than 10% (lost place so not sure how far I got)

This was read on my Kindle.

This was rated 5-Stars as a book that I thoroughly enjoyed, could easily read again . . . maybe even more than once.

Often, as I was reading "Rover Flight", I was reminded of "The Getaway Special" by Jerry Oltion, another excellent escapist SciFi story. The parallels are devices for space travel invented from off-the-shelf parts, likable characters and fun, escapist plots. From there, the story lines each go their own, unique directions.

Peter is a tinkerer, often to his wifes dismay (she couldn't bear to use his 'improved' vacuum cleaner and only barely kept him out of HER kitchen). Only this time, he accidentally invents a fantastic, innovative space drive - one that EVERYONE is trying to get. The plot proceeds without a hitch and the characters are extremely well developed; very three dimensional. Mr. Walker did an excellent job with this story and I look forward to reading his other stories, that were also found on Smashwords.

I think "Rover Flight" could easily segue into a sequel . . . (hint, hint, hint).
