*A Thank you to the Author for allowing me to read this. This is my honest and unbiased Review*


Hello Fellow Readers,

This was a fun book that takes place in the span of one day. While the book has a mixture of characters who make up the cast, my favorite was Ollie. Each eclectic character was interesting and while none of whom I took to more than Ollie. There were two character who I didn't really enjoy listening to their POV and that was Mr.s Butler who I think you're supposed to dislike and the other is Axzle. I felt bad for Prova for having to put up with him as a shellmate, although I will say he got better as the book progressed. 

I listened to this as an audiobook, and I really like the narrator. He spoke clearly, did voices for each character, and was very entertaining to listen to the audiobook. The book is pretty short around 5 hours less if you listen to it faster like I do. While this is a humorous science fiction book, it explores other themes such as heartbreak, losing your job, getting older, and rejection as well as romance. There were points in the book that I felt the author went a little too much off story and kept wondering when it would go back on track. 

Overall, a fun short science fiction book.
