Made me feel the wonderment I felt when I watched ET. I have read a lot of SF, but never have I tried a book seen through the eyes of a child. `The Star Agency' succeeds where many books fail. It suspends disbelief beautifully. Not only does it offer detailed science in an accessible manner; it provides the psychological framework, in the person of the protagonist, Theo, for a truly human and restorative story.
As with many SF stories it aches for visuals. The descriptions encompass the full spectrum of possible technologies and are displayed such that a clever, curious young person could enjoy reading about them. It would fit the silver screen beautifully. The wealth of lengthy, detailed description could easily be spun into a positive series for young people. On a slightly negative note, the passages of discovery are, at times, too long and drawn out. I believe the book would benefit from illustrations, especially as the target audience is YA.
Spielberg's visuals are situated in a `Hardy Boys' dynamic flavoured by English values. Impeccable prose decorate this well-managed, complex plot. A beautiful read! It should be an audio book too.

As an avid reader, what I look for most in a book is the feeling of depth. The feeling of being in the book, in the thick of things and fighting alongside the hero. R.E.Weber has managed to do that and bring the first book of the Star Agency Chronicles alive. The initial excitement, the slow building up of anticipation, empathy for the characters, I felt it all.

I can sense that this is a fine start to an amazing series. The story revolves around Theo, a regular boy who gets thrown into a world that is new to him and one he must learn to exist in. The settings and background in the book are vivid and detailed and you can actually see the scene unfold in front of you. Reading the book was like watching a movie, the reel unspooling in your head.

The author does not make the book all about the adventure. It is a coming of age novel with real life issues that a teenager has to deal with. It is insightful and youngsters will empathise with the young hero and all that life throws at him.

And then there is the adventure, thrilling and well written, which has you turning pages and reading late into the night to find out where Theo ends up. I do love sci-fi and look forward to reading the rest of the books in this fantastic series by this talented author.

It reminds me of one of my favorite Patsy Cline songs 'if i could see the world through the eyes of a child ... what awonderful world this would be'. This concept is captured perfectly in this novel. It has a storyline that is probly aimed at the YA, but has some parts adults can relate to and find funny. All in all, a great read.

I have had this book on my "books to read" list since December, always choosing another book to read, any book, as long as it was not sci-fi. Finally, there was no getting around it, and author R.E. Weber's, "The Star Agency" got his day in court. Let me say right now I was pleasantly surprised. The story telling genuinely merits the descriptive term, "brilliant". It held me engaged throughout the entire book.

The plot is well-developed, with a thoroughly likable protagonist, a 13-year-old boy named Theopolis. Of course, he hates that name, and prefers to be called "Theo". His best friend is a 12-year-old girl named Julie, whom Theo prefers to call "Jules". Theo's grandfather has recently died (Theo had been taking care of him). His aunt has come to live with him, as Theo refuses to leave Brightside Farm, which he now owns since his grandfather's death.

In sum, we have a young boy trying to deal with his emotions after the loss of the grandfather who he cherished. He does not get along well with his aunt. We can see they do not share any emotional bonds, any affection, nothing that would make their relationship special to either of them. Theo connects emotionally with Jules, who understands his feelings about losing his grandfather. Into this scenario comes the precipitating event, the arrival of a mysterious letter and a package containing an old newspaper...It will lead to an adventure 500 light years away, a new life in a new and fantastic world...Highly recommended for young readers, teens, and adults who enjoy sci-fi.

The Star Agency
The title of this book intrigued me, which is why I decided to read it. The concept and content of the story did not disappoint. It is a good read, with plenty of action and mystery. I found the addition of the computer responses in text a little irritating, and the prolonged following of clues a pain. As were the mental uncertainties of the hero. I was disappointed by the fact that such a friend as Jules had appeared to be was discarded early in the book, and then hardly thought of again. There are a number of places where words are missing and small grammatical errors exist, but my review of the story is positive and I give four stars.
