I was delighted with the interactive dialogue style enabling me to involve myself by anticipating replies and giving me opportunities to mutter humorous asides to Mitchell’s droll wit and sarcasm. His intereactive [sic] style guarantees fast and energetic reading. Mitchell’s novel offers swirling action, specific descriptions, curious ethical dilemmas, and foreboding clues to his future work.
This is from a five-star review of Arks of Andromeda on Amazon:
My first impression of Arks of Andromeda is that it is kind of a blend of Joe Haldeman (Forever War series) and Douglas Adams (Hitchhiker’s Guide). There is the revolutionary intrigue of Forever War with the irreverence and creativity of Douglas Adams. I did like the intentional and non-intentional sarcasm of the various robot characters. That’s an unusual fixture in most efforts at stories.
If you like some good old fashioned irreverent humor packaged with a story of bureaucracy and revolution, this is very much worth your time.
I now have both a Kindle ebook and ePub version of the completed Arks of Andromeda and I’m looking for people interested in writing a review. If you have a review site, please contact me if you’re interested. I will send you either the Kindle or ePub file to read.
