Hitchhikers Guide has the edge though, just 1 step up again even if I can’t exactly define why. However I look forward to the next one, I think these characters have quite a few stories in them.
If you like your sci-fi with a heavy dose of humour, then this is the book for you.
The book is set around a non-stop self-deprecating protagonist with a serious attack of charm who managed to make me chuckle and cringe both at the same time.
It’s rare for me to laugh out loud when reading, so I totally enjoyed this book enough for me to go and pickup Volume 1, ensuring that I get the next two books as well.
Good fun, good read. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
I had fun with this. Well written, plotted and rounded out by some interesting support characters.
Add the audiobook which is superbly read and you will instantly find yourself translated into another realm of time and space and find yourself not wanting to come back. It really is that good a tale, take a chance, you won’t be disappointed.

I came across Space Team as a recommendation after reading Pew! Pew! - Sex, Guns, Spaceships... Oh My! Pew! Pew! - Sex, Guns, Spaceships... Oh My! and knowing nothing about Space Team than the blurb opened it up (well on my kindle) and pretty much decided I would be purchasing the whole series after just the first chapter. Yes this novel is that funny and while humour is certainly subjective the cast of characters, their interactions and the ridiculous situations they get themselves into (and out of) are just too entertaining to describe. I can not recommend this novel too highly if you are looking for some hilarious and even silly at times well structured and written space humour yet retaining a solid scifi foundation which keeps the novel from crossing into the spoof category.
I have indeed purchased the five other novels in the series and have no doubt that I will enjoy them immensely.
Fortunately, it's the first one in a series. If they all hold up as well as this one, I'll be one happy camper.
This is really exceptional writing. Not only does the author build a successful plot but he also laces it with great humour. And that’s not easy to achieve. I can only think of a few British comedy creations which achieve the same level of quick fire wit with every sentence – Norman Stanley Fletcher (written and performed by Ronnie Barker) springs to mind. Cal Carver compares very favourably. I’m guessing that the author Barry J. Hutchison is Cal Carver – he must have been a nightmare as a schoolboy at the back of the classroom endlessly goading his teacher with ‘helpful’ quips.
I don’t have any criticism to make. Great writing, entertaining story, a good bunch of characters … and so funny. What’s not to like.
My 2nd favourite character is Splurt – a mute, blobby, shape-shifting alien. Cal & Splurt are a bit like Penn & Teller. I’m hoping that one of the Space Team series of books has Splurt discovering a voice, and it turns out that Splurt is every bit as cocky as Cal.
Now then, which book to read next? How can I resist a title like “Space Team: The Search for Splurt”.
