Synopsis:

The Sirians have colonized a moon of Saturn and claim that under inter-galactic law they are quite within their bounds to do so. To dislodge them will start a war that will unite every spacer world against Earth.

A (space) UN meeting is called and due to Lucky’s forward thinking the Sirians are routed and told to get out of the Solar System.

The End of the Series

 

My Thoughts:

Well, first off, I have read the previous book, Lucky Starr and the Moons of Jupiter, but never recorded it nor reviewed it. According to Librarything, I never even added it to my “Currently Reading” stack. Baloney. I blame LT for screwing me up. Totally their fault and my own absent mindedness in no way has anything to do with this miscarriage of justice.

Anyway.

I just wanted to get through this book. It is too middle grade for me and I just wanted it over. There is nothing any worse about this book than the previous ones, I had just reached my limit of what I could take. And I had had enough that I didn’t even care about recording the previous book that I had forgotten about. I think that says it all.

Now, I did enjoy the covers for each of these books. That 50’s, 60’s 70’s astro-puff look, it works for me.Probably the best part of the whole series.

Man, me and SF are just not hitting it off right this year! First Reynolds leaves me with forgettable writing and now Asimov makes me reach my limit? I need some exciting SF!!!

★★☆☆☆

    What didn’t strike a chord with you about it? Boring plot? No action? Bad characters? I must know!

    The Librarian (at my school) has been urging me to read some of Asimov’s books but they just seem so boring. Perhaps I’ll show him your review if he brings it up again 😉

      Well, in all honesty, I’d be right next to the librarian urging Asimov on any one possible. It’s just this particular series that bombed. Not a good representation of his genius 😉
      I really like his Foundation trilogy and his short stories. The man excelled at churning out wicked fun short stories.

    Some good SF, eh? Probably not up for Chu’s new one… 😉 I’m drawing a blank, honestly.

  4. Ugh! Too bad it wasn’t more interesting. I would have read it just for the cover!!

  5. Oh no, how dare you, Asimov!

    But I also understand that sometimes series go on for too long.. And you just have enough after book 5 or 6.. Trilogies are good! I like my trilogies^^

    Btw, ‘Lucky Starr’ could be a wrestler name. I think there even is a Mexican girl wrestler called ‘Sexy Star’ 😀

    Have you read ‘The Expanse’ by James Corey? I read the first book ‘Leviathan wakes’ recently and really enjoyed it! And I don’t often go for SciFi novels. Maybe this will change now.

  6. Such a shame this was too MG- but I do get your point about reaching your limit.

  7. Maybe a non-MG Asimov book would cure it all? 😀 But yes, you’re definitely reaching some unfortunate limits nowadays!
