Couldn't stop reading. Loved the main character, the worlds, and the humour was striking. Well written.

This was an excellent read. I don't give many books 5 stars, and until now, none that were independently published. There's always grammar problems, spelling issues, or plot inconsistencies that cause me to downgrade their ratings. This book had very very few of these issues, well within accepted norms, even for professionally edited and published material. I am definitely going to read more by this author. I found this book on smashwords as a freebie, but you can be assured I will purchase others just as soon as I am able. Great work, and I recommend it to anyone who likes science fiction, fast paced action, or who wants to be entertained. I laughed many times because of the one-liners sprinkled liberally thru out the story, these were the best parts of the book. Some authors start out being amusing, and just overplay the amusing card way too much, but in this book, it was handled with some of the best mastery I've seen. It's rare you get a book that is entertaining, and an excellent story, and downright hilarious at the same time, but it was definitely done well here.

Steampunk...Sci fi...Fantasy... That's quite a range. The writing is good... Maybe I should leave it at that. There's no point in critiquing mediocre work, and thus, I could tear this art to pieces. Congrads! Your work is good enough to criticize, but why nit pick? In the final analysis, the stories are just plain fun. Perhaps a little political, but at least they encompass fundamental issues, rather than the cause of the month. I'm glad that I happened upon your art. You can change a mind. That's the true measure of success in this field.

One always wonders what to expect when one reads an author for the first time. It was my lucky day when I found "Bypass Gemini." There was a great story line, lots of action, and some very unlikely escapes. This book does remind me a little of the Stainless Steel Rat series, which is a good thing. I cannot wait to begin the 2nd and 3rd book of this series. Well done!

Lex is like many young men, almost a perfect wannabe steriotype. Some risk are just to much and then he meets K (certified mad) and then the adventure begins and he matures. Well written and even has a few twisted subplot that I liked.

Great fun. If you're a fan of Harry Harrison's Stainless Steel Rat series you'll love Lallo's Big Sigma series. Loved this one - Bypass Gemini, bought the second in the series - Unstable Prototypes & loved it and am counting the days to December 18th when the third in the series - Artificial Evolution - is released.

A really good, exciting science fiction set in outer space.

Trevor can no longer race, his first love and a way to experience a high without drugs. If you can't race legally, you may as start your own courier service, which is a way to legally race through traffic. When he takes on a job that will make life a bit easier, he finds himself mixed up with the mob, a mega-corporation, and a lunatic. Now he must learn how to stop a company so big it could rule the universe.

This was a really good example of what science fiction should be. It borders on reality, it could really happen some day, yet it is far enough out to let the imagination run wild. The idea that the common individual, down on their luck, can possibly prevent the big, bad corporation from destroying all that is good helps fuel the imagination.

I would recommend this book to anyone that enjoys science fiction adventure stories. Of course, if you hate those stories based in space, by all means stay away from this one. I have read the authors trilogy, The Book of Deacon, and enjoyed that also. I will be reading more of Joseph Lallo's books in the future. He could become one of my favorite authors, since I seem to identify well with his stories and characters.
