I was kindly presented with a kindle for Christmas and, as a regular reader of Mr. McNabb's musings on twitter and blog, I finally had the opportunity to get a hold of Space. I'm a push-over when it comes to product placement, however science-fiction is not my usual hunting ground for material.

It was a fun couple of days spent laying on the couch, surrounded by lego and various other discarded kids gifts as Mr. Jonson is taken on quite the ride as he unravels his connections to a quite fantastic organisation and a small part of his family history. Whether intentional or not, and regardless of what the initial publisher comments found, it's funny if you let your mind wander into the situational comedy of it all as part of a wider science-fiction plot - and as such it should sell!

I subsequently brought Olives, Beirut & Shemlan and, whilst of a completely different genre, the writing style adapts neatly to three thoroughly engaging reads.

Through all four books, I have found the characters to be so fantastically described that defining a cast-list for the long-overdue movie adaptations will be easy.

A difficult book to categorise, Space is a sci-fi thriller which starts out, at least, in a sub-Douglas Adams style. Like Adams' Arthur Dent, hero Ben Jonson is an ordinary man (albeit a doctor) caught up in an increasingly bizarre world of inexplicable events and unlikely characters. It is an enjoyable read with some memorable characters and plot devices, but unfortunately, and despite the author's claims, it just isn't very funny. Certainly it raised the odd wry smile, and even one laugh-out-loud moment (at the name given to Jonson in a false passport) that came after 68% of the book (data courtesy of Kindle) but otherwise the attempts at humour fall rather flat, unless you find the sudden materialisation of 10 inch pink dildos to be rib cracking. In fact in the final quarter of the book McNabb seems to give up all pretence of humour as he storms to the book's climax. On the evidence of this novel (admittedly his first) I am looking forward to McNabb's forthcoming thriller 'Beirut', but trust that he'll keep clear of further attempts at funny.

4.0 out of 5 stars SPACE - Leave one on your bookshelf for this!! 29 Oct. 2012
By Atilla The Mouse - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
It was "suggested" to me by my wife that I read this book. She knows the author and had read his previous book, Olives. As an avid reader of science fiction and fantasy, she thought I would enjoy Space. How right she was!

I was wondering what I had let myself in for after reading the first few pages, but once I reached Chapter 2 I was hooked. The story of Dr. Ben Johnson's everyday life being inadvertently turned upside-down by the appearance (out of thin air) of a roast chicken and a large dildo sets the scene for a manic and funny chase across Europe with a variety of government agencies, spies and corporate heavies on his tail.

A truly enjoyable read, with an unexpected twist at the end.
As I turned the last page (metaphorically speaking on my Kindle)I knew what my next purchase would be: Beirut - An Explosive Thriller by Alexander McNabb!
