An easy read
on 20 May 2012
"Teleport This" is a science fiction comedy about two geeky scientists who make contact with aliens and travel around in space.
There is an obvious comparison, which I could not stop myself from making, with the "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" trilogy (of five).
Also fairly obviously, the comparison comes out in favour of Hitchhiker's.
That out of the way, this was a quick and easy read with enough characterisation to keep my interest, and a quick fire comedic tone.
The kindle version suffers in places from what I assume is lack of editing. There are a number of paragraphs, particularly in the first half of the book, that change tense part way through and there are some strange spelling choices (buy/by and know/now) throughout. However these are rare enough to only be a slight - though avoidable - annoyance and didn't distract me too much from the story.
