The Tar-Aiym Krang (Pip and Flinx Adventure Series #2)

( 25 )

Overview

Here was a wide-open world for any venture a man might scheme. The planet attracted unwary travelers, hardened space-sailors, and merchant buccaneers—a teeming, constantly shifting horde that provided a comfortable income for certain quick-witted fellows like Flinx and his pet mini-dragon, Pip. With his odd talents, the pickings were easy enough so that Flinx did not have to be dishonest . . . most of the time.

In fact, it hardly seemed dishonest at all to steal a starmap from a...

Overview

Here was a wide-open world for any venture a man might scheme. The planet attracted unwary travelers, hardened space-sailors, and merchant buccaneers—a teeming, constantly shifting horde that provided a comfortable income for certain quick-witted fellows like Flinx and his pet mini-dragon, Pip. With his odd talents, the pickings were easy enough so that Flinx did not have to be dishonest . . . most of the time.

In fact, it hardly seemed dishonest at all to steal a starmap from a dead body that didn’t really need it anymore. But Flinx forgot one crucial point. He should have wondered why the body was dead in the first place.

    Great start

    I first read this book in 1979 and it was my start in the world of science fiction. Unfortunately, the series should have been laid to rest a LONG time ago. Its been long enough ago that I don't remember what events very clearly which, combined with Mr. Foster's random jumps back and forth in the timeline and generally forgettable plots, makes it hard to remember the storyline....

    I thought some of the various encounters with the Aahn were interesting, but the Ulru-Ujurrians was not (except as a lame plot device to get Flinx his own ship). I liked "Bloodhype" (?) with its encounter with the lone 'lunatic' Tar-Aiym who helped Flinx face off against Vom, but its the only other book in the series that has been AT ALL worthwhile...

    Like Orson Scott Card's "Ender's Game", Mr. Foster starts off with a great premise and a great first book and then essentialy milks the series along with no other apparent objective than book sales (neither author has had a meaningful/memorable story in the interim). I have checked out the other books in each author's series from the libarary, but have never bothered to buy them because they do not begin to compare to the series opener in ANY way...

    An enjoyable quick read.

    I enjoyed it enough to read it twice. Plenty of action and likable characters. The author paints a good picture of the world he has created.

    I rated this 4 stars, but that is because this book, and those that follow it, are very entertaining even if they are not high in brain food nutritional value.
    While they are not the hard, serious si-fi that garners my 5 start reviews I find that I always enjoy reading them and breeze through them quickly.

    Set your expectations right, sit back and enjoy a good adventure.
