    space opera at its finest

    Chicago commodities traders Marcus Walker camps in an isolated part of the California Sierra Nevadas when he sees a bright light fall into the nearby woods. When he goes into the nearest town for food and drunk, he discusses what he saw with the patrons; they convince him that a meteorite landed nearby. He goes to sleep at his campsite, but wakes up to the same scenery except that he is on a spaceship taking him away from earth.<P> He meets George, who like him has a universal translator in his brain. George¿s intelligence was also boosted so he could talk with the Vilenjii, purple pointy-headed giants who want to sell the various species to collectors for a profit. Marcus and Roger join forces with an octopus-like sentient species and the snake-like Tuuq¿alian to escape from their holding pens. Since they don¿t know where they are, they depend on the escape pod to flee the ship and the kindness of another sentient race to help them out of their predicament.<P> LOST AND FOUND, the first book in THE TAKEN TRILOGY, is space opera at its finest. People who believe in alien abductions will read what happens to the abductees and hope that it is science fiction not science fact. The four sentient beings take their situation very seriously and constantly find ways of outwitting their captors. When interacting with each other, their conversations range from the ridiculous to the sublime. It will be hard to wait for the next installment in this exciting series to see what happens next to these homesick wanderers.<P> Harriet Klausner

    Couldn't put it down!

    This was a nice refreshing change to the last couple of books I'd read. While the first bit had me questioning to stick it out, once the ball got rolling at the abduction I was hooked. I loved the character George, simple but just as adorable on page as a dog in real life. Rating: Idea premise: A, Content: A, Overall rating: A!

    No so much

    I guess I can see where some can find the comedy in the story, but for me it was just not all that entertaining. I did not find the characters all that likeable. Even the dog, the most likeable and interesting character in the book became rather insufferable by the end. Space opera at it's not so great.
