About this deal

What made it fun to read, and the source of my four-star rating, is the sheer propulsive power of Author Ashton's use of Mickey7 as the first-person narrator. In some ways, this book reminded me of Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir (one of my favourite reads of 2021). There are a lot of thought provoking questions throughout that really add to the overall enjoyment, without making your brain hurt too much. Mickey7 by Edward Ashton is light-hearted sci-fi romp, with space colonization, alien first contact, and even cloning themes to boot. Durante los últimos nueve años ha realizado toda clase de tareas peligrosas y ha sido el conejillo de Indias de experimentos que ponen a prueba los límites de la resistencia humana.

Now, the only reason this isn't a 5-star read for me is because there were a couple of chapters in the middle that dragged a little but other than that I loved every minute of this.The native species are growing curious about their new neighbors, and that curiosity has Commander Marshall very afraid.

I sort of found that endearing, he didn't make any obvious stupid decisions or ones that did not fit the character and sort of bumbled his way through the story. Even though there can always be a new Mickey, we see the issues with the current Mickey fighting his innate survival instinct.

The story follows a space explorer, Mickey Barnes, aka Mickey7, as he is on his seventh cloned iteration, surviving on a beachhead installation on an alien world.
