A great story
Good characters, a riveting plot and continuous action.
The evolution of the main character, Elizabeth, is just as important as the story. I enjoyed it immensely.
What a great book! Loved 'How to Buy a Planet' and this prequel is brilliant too, if not better! The whole idea of the Zoo is superb and I just wanted more and more of this world! Written with great pace when required but also at lesser pace depending on where our characters are. Great humour, great characters, great dialogue. Simply a very pleasurable reading experience! Well done Mr Holdsworth!
Part sci-fi and part a study in psychology
A wonderfully crafted plot and very interesting characters! Vivid descriptions of people and places. Will be reading the next book immediately! Highly recommended for fans of sci-fi, adventure, humor and people watching.
I really enjoyed How to Buy a Planet, so having the opportunity to read how Mrs B and the Professor meet was not to be missed. The plot line in this book is very original. This book has it all for any lovers of Hitchhiker's Guide - some dark plot lines and really funny moments. The Zoo is particularly entertaining!
