    1. I said it in a few status updates, but after I finished the book last night I was even surer in my convictions, this should be animated. Why not live action? Well, as we've seen in all the super hero movies, actors hate having their faces obscured - it's their biggest asset. So they keep it visible even if it doesn't make sense in the context of the plot. In this book, the characters spend 1/3 to 1/2 of the book sporting completely different faces. That wouldn't fly in Hollywood. Also, Hollywood [...]


    2. I enjoyed this enough that I considered giving it four stars, but there were enough issues that I rounded down to three. The good, first of all. This is a heist novel. I love heists, rogues and capers, and this was an amusing one, with action, banter, daring, unlikely plans and protagonist haplessness. The dialogue was fun, and the relationships between the characters were varied and convincing. It's also a space opera in the classic mold, and although the genre is starting to show its age I sti [...]


    3. The best word to describe "Pay me bug" is "unoriginal". The protagonists form the same set of loveable space outlaws we have seen many times before and the setting is one of the "two empires and some rough between"-affairs that allows our heroes to thrive. The same has to be said for our antagonists which boil down to two evil bureaucrats and the neutral parties complete with the young female leader who is as competent in her job as she is beautiful.And yet none of this really matters, because t [...]


    4. Pay Me, Bug! is a textbook example of Space Opera. There are dashing smugglers, bizarre aliens and aliens that are very human-like, lasers, spaceship dog fights, and so on. That's not to say that these tropes are bad, or that they make the book bad; in fact the book isn't bad at all. But, it isn't particularly good either.Pay Me, Bug!, is well written, if a bit weak during the action scenes, the characters are fun for the most part, and there is a lot of snappy dialogue. What really weakens this [...]


    5. I quite enjoyed this. It was, in some ways, your standard honorable thief in space story, but, it felt pretty novel. There were aspects of the world building that seemed new, and I thought the character development was well done.I thought about putting it up to a 5 - I can't really find flaws to call out. On the other hand, it just wasn't quite exciting enough to feel like I want to do that.


    6. Pay Me, Bug! is my first venture into the realm of “Space Opera.” Don’t get me wrong, I love science fiction, but the word “opera” alone conjures visions of stuffy old men and women in powdered wigs, begging for attention. Not exactly an exciting vision, even with the word “space” in front of it. This book, however, is anything but boring—it kept me interested, from the first page to the very last. It’s not just entertaining; it’s witty and smart, with sophisticated ideas tha [...]


    7. When Grif Vindh and his crew pull into the Tylaris system to celebrate after pulling off an impossible heist, all hands begin dreaming of what they'll do next. But the one thing nobody expected was that they'd have to go back and do it all over again. And worse: this time, the mark knows they're coming.If you told me that Mike Resnick was going to adapt The Sting, and set it in space, this is the book I'd expect him to deliver. Quite simply, it's one of the best indie books I've ever read - and [...]


    8. In this space opera/con job/heist adventure, the stakes are always perilously high, but the mood says everything is going to work out all right. After going terribly wrong for a while. Which is actually great, because you’ll want to see just what trick Captain Vindh has up his sleeve next.What impressed me most about the writing is that the crew of the Fool’s Errand really seemed like they had a long history together. The banter, trust, and camaraderie amongst the crew really made me believe [...]


    9. This was a fun read but also quite exhausting. At times, I found the casual tone of the book very annoying. Also, the pacing was extremely fast which was partially good (I couldn’t stop turning the pages) and partially problematic (in some places I would have liked a little more world-building to better “see” the scene – I simply felt out of breath in places).The story itself is complex and filled with very interesting characters. My favorite being the title-inspiring bug. However, due t [...]


    10. We received a free copy of this book in return for an honest review to be posted on The Review Hart This is a book for people who enjoy light-hearted sci-fi where classic characters are given a fresh twist. The range of characters is familiar, yet the author brought them to life and made them entirely his own. The races that were represented within the finely woven world were clearly given a lot of thought and are different to the stock that has come to be expected. The plot is well-paced, and t [...]


    11. This book was part of the Immerse or Die bundle. I wish I had liked it better, but I felt it was a bit too formulaic. Basically this is a caper story where a crew of rogues is coerced to steal a McGuffin - some sort of alien artifact which is pretty much irrelevant besides motivating the plot - from a facility belonging to a religious police state run by telepaths. The story is furnished with long-established science fiction tropes. It is smoothly written but I never felt fully engaged - I was j [...]


    12. This book describes itself right off the bat as being space opera, and it means it. It's a book with no pretensions of being serious science fiction: it just wants to be an adventure tale with space ships and aliens and technology so advanced that it is indistinguishable from magic, and it is.I found the writing terrific, hitting its target exactly. It's not a literary masterpiece, but the dialog is snappy and fun, and there were no dull parts to slog through. I read the whole thing in about two [...]


    13. This was an excellent space opera - and quite possibly the best self-published title I've purchased for kindle.The dialogue is funny and witty without quite crossing the line into excessive. The plot is fast-paced, and the tone of the book is very fun.Wright does a great job with the crew, creating from the first page the sense that this group of people have a long (and colorful) history. It's certainly irreverent - I stopped counting the number of "noodle incidents" that appeared - but I enjoye [...]


    14. I got this book in a bundle, so I wasn't at all familiar with the author when I started reading, but I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. The plot moves along at a consistently good clip; the characters, while occasionally reliant on genre archetypes, are enjoyable in their interactions; and the worldbuilding is actually pretty smooth.Aside from a few typos, it's hard for me to find much to complain about, given how quick and satisfying a read this was. It left me wanting more, which is by [...]


    15. Space opera! I haven't read a space opera since well, since I was a wee bit younger. This is fast paced, colourful and such an easy read that it's hard to put down. I'm looking forward to more adventures of Capt Grif and his crew.This is an homage to the Golden Age of science fiction, sure, but it's also a fine read in and of itself. That the author chose a classic model to work with is to his credit.Well done!


    16. Comedic science is hard to pull off, but that's just what this book does. I was laughing aloud at various scenes -- it doesn't take itself too seriously, some of the set up is clear homage or parody of certain well-known series, but it keeps its tone consistently through while delivering an exciting adventure.


    17. Despite the unfortunate title, this is a fun science fiction novel about stealing a mysterious something from a group of telepathic religious fanatics. No character building was done. No real world building was done. But there are lots of clever lines and amusing scenes. This is not fine fiction, but it is a lot of fun.


    18. It's hard to decide between three and four stars, so I went with four.This isn't exactly "space opera" as some have called it, but I don't know what else I'd call it.There are some pacing issues, even during some of the action, but overall it manages to be amusing and interesting enough to be worth reading.




    19. Quick read, great characters and good natured humor. Love the dialog and the interactions between the characters.


    20. If, like me, you're a Firefly fan, you're going to love this book. Conversely if you "didn't get into" Firefly, you might just want to move along.



    21. веселе чтиво у стилі серіалу "firefly"… але до справжньої, твердої четвірки не дотягує.
