I have read all of Stan Morris's books. They are easy reading light entertainment. I suppose aimed at teenage market, but i am not in that bracket and still enjoy his books.

4.0 out of 5 stars Futuristic Adventure 25 April 2013
By 1110cg - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This mature YA novel was a fun read. The author, Stan Morris, set up the futuristic setting excellently. While reading the novel I could really picture the planets and space sites the characters were visiting. While the main characters, Pall and Sarah are ages 15 and 18 respectively, in their world they are considered adults and the situations they were put in make them act as such. Throughout the novel it was fun to watch Sarah's character grow and develop as a person, and same with Pall, though in a different way. The story was interested and easy to read, but there were hidden lessons embedded within it also. Some of the characters beginning travels were a bit lengthy, but overall being fun, creative, and one-of-a-kind I would give it 4/5 stars.

Sarah Talmaiz is an average teenage girl wanting desperately to speed off into space for a quick joyride in an expensive space yacht with her boyfriend. But her clandestine rendezvous goes awry when she discovers that the boy with the expensive space yacht is nothing more than a jerk and a rapist. The space yacht gets taken out by a meteor strike and an unassuming boy named Pall comes aboard for repairs. He is persuaded by Sarah to rescue her by taking her off the ship. He agrees, but Sarah doesn’t realize that she has unwittingly married the boy. Pall whisks her deeper into space far from her home and so beings Sarah’s Spaceship Adventure.

If you ever said to yourself ‘I wonder what it’s like to be a space trucker’, then this book is for you. It details the in’s and out’s of being a space truck driver and is meticulous in that respect. Sarah and Pall are brought together by a series of unfortunate events and one improbable micro meteor strike. Their ill-fated relationship builds over time as they fight about mundane issues. IE. Sarah and Pall argue over the price of shoes that they’re selling. There are lots of these kinds of banal fights. During and between all their arguments they wonder if they should be together. This is fairly accurate for real life, but it’s not the type of conflict that makes you want to keep turning pages. I enjoyed the tongue-in-cheek moments in the book, but there are several odd points of focus. IE. Several paragraphs are used to describe how the spaceship docks in different ports , and there is an overabundance of explanation of how goods are stacked inside the spaceship. Amidst all these extensive descriptions Sarah gradually turns from a simple teen on a big planet to a crew-person plying the space lanes. ‘Adventure’ is included in the title so I was expecting lots of wild and unexpected things to happen. Well, stuff definitely happened and they were certainly unexpected, but they were bland in their development and execution. Sarah and Pall go to trial for piracy, Sarah gets propositioned by a rich guy, Sarah gets taken by slavers, there’s a minor bit about Peter’s infidelity, and then there was a whole section about Sarah wanting to buy high heeled shoes, but mostly they go to different places and sell their goods while Sarah learns the rigors of being a crew-person. Slavery is mentioned early in the book and I felt that the book was heading in that direction, possibly Sarah and Pall get mixed up in that and end up fighting the slavers and ending slavery, but no. The story is all about Sarah and Pall falling in love as they become successfully space traders. At the books core is a love story about two young teens and in that respect it’s done well.

I really enjoyed reading this!
Sarah's Spaceship Adventure is a wonderful book to read. I really enjoyed traveling through space with Sarah and Pall as they got to know each other. Sarah is a 19 year old girl, who prior to meeting Pall, probably (at least this is how I see her) was fairly shallow and just went with the flow. As Sarah and Pall interact, however, Sarah grows into the type of feisty character that I can never get enough of. Pall, while younger than Sarah, has the maturity of someone who is much older than he really is, and it was also fun to watch as Sarah taught him to losen up some. Add in the vocabulary of the hoop and space, which is never explained but written in a way that the reader has no problem keeping up, and Sarah's Spaceship Adventure is a delightful read for anyone who enjoys young adult fiction with a bit of feistiness. And, even if the characters didn't totally rock, I would totally read this book just to see what names Sarah comes up with for the ship, and to find out if the ship ever gets named... but if you want to know that you will have to read this awesome book for yourself.

Stuff I really enjoyed about this book-
The story itself was very enjoyable. Stan Morris does a wonderful job immersing you in this full universe that, as far as I know, is 99% made up in his head. He references Earth a few times, but it's this mystic/mythic Earth that may or may-not actually exist. Marl, the planet that Sarah comes from is well-described with it's two continents, as well as all the astroids visited in "the hoop" throughout the story. One can easily picture the surroundings, and the people that are encountered in this book. Another thing I loved about this book was the way that Stan Morris barely used any of our clichés. I say our cliches, because it is obvious that there are clichés used, they are just all clichés from this universe that he has created. Finally, I really, really enjoyed hearing Sarah's suggestions as to what to name the spaceship. When she boards Pall Swiftcar's spaceship, she asks him what he calls the ship, to which he says he and his shipmates refer to it as ship number three. So Sarah spends the book coming up with names for the ship, like "Zooming Zipper", "Fat Angel", and "Slow Boat" among many others, all of which Pall immediately rejects. I found this little recurring antic highly entertaining.
