    I received a copy of this book as a Goodreads Giveaway. I read this book, having only a superficial exposure to the "Little Shop of Horrors" which I am sure somewhat reduced my ability to catch all of the nuances of the story, but it did not affect my ability to enjoy it. I am a huge fan of the spaceship drama genre. Anything that resembles a space opera I am totally down for giving it a shot. This is such a fun little read. Its silly and light hearted but totally believable (in a sci-fi sense). I received a copy of this book as a Goodreads Giveaway.

I am a huge fan of the spaceship drama genre. Anything that resembles a space opera I am totally down for giving it a shot. This is such a fun little read. Its silly and light hearted but totally believable (in a sci-fi sense). I got a very Arthur Dent feeling off our hero, Chuck, a maligned average guy who the universe seems to be working against at every turn. But in a turn of events, he is given the opportunity to rise above mediocrity and he seizes it with both hands. Plant is a well written lawful evil villain. He makes the very valid point about how it is just doing what is is meant to do, eat and grow and spread. It is not its fault that its prey is humans, and humans shouldn't be upset about it. We see a little bit of this same vein in Chucks interaction with the lift and its AI. The author does a good job of making you question humanities assumption of superiority. Violet, the love interest botanist, is also a god character. She is smart and clever and quick on her feet, but also empathetic in a reasonable manner. She doesn't want to kill Plant, because she knows that Plant is doing what it wants. She comes up with a plan to control it so they can resolve the situation, without having to kill it. If only all humans could think her way, the universe would be a better place.

    The Transporter is AWESOME! Definitely a cute rendition on the romantic comedy horror story. Think some of my favorite parts is the banter between Chuck and the Transporter. 🤣 This was a fun read.

    [audiobook] Hannibal Hills (Narrator) 4 stars ----- Think Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy or Red Dwarf crossed with the original Little Shop of Horrors story. (received free copy) - but I would have used a real audible credit for this one.

    A light hearted romp through space with a killer plant. If you like campy horror musicals, you'll love this. A light hearted romp through space with a killer plant. If you like campy horror musicals, you'll love this.
