Singing the Dogstar Blues review ì 103 The planet Choria And Mavkel has chosen Joss of all people as his roommate and study partner Then Mavkel gets sick Joss uickly realizes that his will to live is draining away The only way she can help Mavkel is by breaking the Centre's strictest r. I m always on the lookout for a fun space related story Singing the Dogstar Blues isn t set in space but there is a very futuristic feel to it and ALIENS so it definitely hit my sweet spot If you are wondering if this book reads at all like Goodman s other book Eon the answer at least for me is absolutely not I enjoyed Eon but the pacing was off and I wasn t especially attached to any of the characters That s not the case here Joss Aaronson attends a prestigious time jumping school and holds one of 12 coveted spots in the program for her year She is a comp which basically means that her mother used a donor to have her and comps are looked down on as genetically manipulated because people can use up to even 5 or 6 donors to create the child of their choice She is snarky sassy and unlike Eona it doesn t take her eras to figure out what is going on around her Thank goodness for thatOverall the book has a bit of a campy and adventurous feel The plot primarily revolves around Joss and her new school partner Mavkel the first alien to be admitted As expected there are enemies and allies in the school administration and amongst the students but Joss and Mavkel hold this entire story on their backs and they succeed in doing so I couldn t picture what Mavkel actually looked like but it didn t hinder the character development His personality came through even with a language barrier and extensive cultural differences He and Joss bond over music and that is where the title of the book comes from There are hints that this was Goodman s first novel the writing definitely favors utility rather than description for instance Since this is what I prefer in my sci fi I was than happy with the style And Ms Goodman actually surprised me with a plot twist near the end don t click it unless you want it to be ruined view spoiler I seriously laughed out loud when we found out that Mavkel s sneeze into the Petri dish resulted in Joss s connection with the alien race hide spoiler

Singing the Dogstar Blues review ì 103 Alison Goodman's first novel in a very special new edition Seventeen year old Joss is a rebel and a student of time travel at the prestigious Centre for Neo Historical Studies This year for the first time the Centre has an alien student Mavkel from. For me this book balances science fiction humour and interesting characters in a way that grabbed me far than any Douglas Adams book ever did To be honest the author had me at flappy eared alienScience fiction when it is told well is easily one of my favourite genres but too much of it turns into some crappy dystopian romance or is written for a male readership the only sci fi I can honestly say I ve enjoyed in recent years is Margaret Atwood and Ursula K Le Guin But I loved the world building in this novel and the characters were different and intriguing especially Mavkel I somehow managed to find it totally believable that these Chorians a bunch of genderless flappy eared aliens with four noses two mouths and two brains had made contact with Earth in the future and both humans and aliens were now trying to share their technological knowledgeThere s mystery and time travel too and a heroine who doesn t annoy me What could I possibly wantI don t know why this isn t a series there s so much here that could be explored The world created is exciting and has the potential to hold many stories and the novel closes with very little of it discovered by the reader I find it strange and rather funny that in an age where every author who comes up with the slightest hint of originality will most definitely write at least a trilogy this is only a standalone More please Ms Goodman
