5.0 out of 5 stars Superb 1st novel, may there be many more.
Worth reading twice, in quick succession.
The first read takes you into the violent and uncertain world that the main character, and speeds you through one dangerous drama after another...
The second read should be taken more slowly, so that you can savour the level of detail the author has packed into his universe.
Shades of Heinlein and the Darwinian...

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice read
Nice read. Uncomplicated tale of the ascending space dude. Predictable but also refreshing. Something refreshing about it. And the good thing is the author will get better with time !!

Shades of Heinlein and the Darwinian effects of emigration, shades of Firefly with independent characters who rarely bow to those they do not respect.......

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Space Opera, 17 Nov 2013

This review is from: Take The Star Road (The Maxwell Saga Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
Now and again you encounter a book that sets a cracking pace, is full of interesting incident... and is written in clichés, with two-dimensional characterisation. Do you remember the classic Dennis Wheatley novels? Just like this one, except that this is space opera and Wheatley was crude inter-War thrillers.

Suspend your literary critical faculties and just enjoy! A hero who can't put a foot wrong, wins medals, money, promotion... and gets the girl in the end I've no doubt. Great fun!

Can't wait to read the follow-up.

Found these books to be somewhat difficult to put down, the in depth characterisation might seem distracting but for me it works well ... A kind of detective super hero who doesn't know it

Like early Heinlein or a Nathan Lowell book this coming of age novel is all the better for it's slightly awkward style.

I really enjoyed the book, I've started the next in the series. I hope Grant's style develops with the characters

Story was an interesting one although the dialogue never quite came out right. Main character is well described and his history was explained well
Looking forward to the next one.

3.0 out of 5 stars Above average, 28 May 2013

This review is from: Take The Star Road (The Maxwell Saga Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
This is a nice debut and an enjoyable coming of age novel reminiscent of early Heinlein. The lead character is principled and reasonably engaging, if a bit over-lucky and under-challenged at times. Criticisms are that threat is sometimes too easily dispatched and that he occasionally exhibits more maturity than would be expected. The glimpses of backstory we have seen so far do not satisfactorily explain his acquisition of such wisdom - an opportunity for a prequel?

Recommended.
