What a wonderful experience reading this novel was. This is a sci-fi book for those that aren’t fans of science fiction. It gave me feelings similar to the first time I read Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. You also get Firefly vibes from this book. There are multiple characters that are distinct and all lovable. There was not one of the main characters that I disliked in any way, each had their own charm and something to offer, an insight, wisdom or observation on life, love, family and friendship. The story allows you to get to know these characters and the world and that is really it. But it does it in a way that was captivating and fun. There was no part of the story I felt I could do without. Looking forward to reading the next book, A Close and Common Orbit.
