5.0 out of 5 stars Cracking read, 5 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Destination Alpha Four (Ant and Cleo) (Kindle Edition)
Although this series is written for children, there's a lot for grown-ups that children wouldn't get. At times hilarious, this series had me laughing out loud in several occasions. It helps if you can understand German, Russian, Spanish, Latin and Welsh (oes, Cymraeg!) as the author has sprinkled phrases in these languages liberally throughout. It's worth taking the time to translate these as one or two contain some of the best jokes.

The series is really one, long story and the later books have several references to characters and events from the earlier ones. So it's best to read through this series in order.

I thoroughly enjoyed episodes 1 to 5 and can't wait for the sixth.

5.0 out of 5 stars A highly entertaining romp, 21 Nov. 2013

This review is from: Destination Alpha Four (Ant and Cleo) (Kindle Edition)
I really enjoyed the dialogues and the interaction between the young (accidental) superheroes and the adults. Also the spoof on British and American spy novels with the Americans obsessed with technology but naive and the British flegmatic and devious. If you liked this, you might also like "The Robin Hood hacker collection" by Carolyn McCray.

5.0 out of 5 stars Crazy but Brilliant!, 31 Aug. 2013

This review is from: Destination Alpha Four (Ant and Cleo) (Kindle Edition)
Aimed at teenagers but suitable for everyone, this book is filled with crazy humour. At times it feels like you're watching a Carry-On film! Yet at the same time it's a brilliant, well written and exciting Sci Fi adventure, taking the reader on a wild trip from London to the uranium mines on the penal colony of Alpha Centauri 4. We glimpse many other worlds too - colonies of the USZ - the United States of the Zodiac. There's a bewildering array of characters and scene changes, yet a coherent story runs through it all. Well worth a read. As the header says, Crazy but brilliant!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best one yet., 25 Aug. 2013

This review is from: Destination Alpha Four (Ant and Cleo) (Kindle Edition)
Like all good books the hints were there all along, in plain sight, but it keeps you wondering what is going on right up until the end when it all fell into place.
I know this was intended originally for kids, but then so was Harry Potter, and on the whole I prefer this.
I am not sure about another Ant and Cleo story, for my money the next step should be chasing a film or TV series.

5.0 out of 5 stars The team is back, 11 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Destination Alpha Four (Ant and Cleo) (Kindle Edition)
The team is back righting the wrongs of the universe. This is a heavier subject matter than the 3 previous books in the series.

It was still an enjoyable read. Unable to put down the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very funny and well written, 10 Aug. 2013

Despite being 70 and it probably being written for younger people I found it funny and well written. Any book that makes you laugh out loud in a crowded hospital reception area while waiting for treatment has got to be 5 star.

Excellent, light-hearted, science fiction. Not so hard-core that it's able to teach you anything, but not so soft as to require bizarre suspension of common-sense.
