It is the dawn of the 22nd century, and Earth is on the “Fabulous Side of the Galaxy.” Imagine the future. Not the flossy-glossy one that feels like riding a Tesla driven by a coked out Ayn Rand. No. Imagine instead... a future somewhere between a white cishet libertarian’s wet dream with sexbots and a nightmare Greta Thunberg had during a nap after eating expired tofu chim It is the dawn of the 22nd century, and Earth is on the “Fabulous Side of the Galaxy.” Imagine the future. Not the flossy-glossy one that feels like riding a Tesla driven by a coked out Ayn Rand. No. Imagine instead... a future somewhere between a white cishet libertarian’s wet dream with sexbots and a nightmare Greta Thunberg had during a nap after eating expired tofu chimichangas. Can you picture that? No? Try this: Los Angeles has become a main hub of the Galactic Confederation – a relay outpost for extra terrestrial travelers coming from and going to the Norma and Scotus-Centaurus arms of the Milky Way, also known as ‘The Effed Up Side of the Galaxy.’ After his mom disappeared during a quantum terrorist attack when he was a boy, Gabe Chagas decided to follow in her footsteps and become a member of the LAX Security force, where he spends his time deporting aliens for a living. Gabe isn’t particularly fit. As a matter of fact, he’s a total wimp. What he lacks in courage, he also lacks in brains. But when Gabe receives a cryptic message directing him to a non-existent gate in LAX’s infamous Terminal 3 promising answers for his mother’s disappearance – and her presumed status as an undocumented time traveler – his own terrestrial residency falls under scrutiny. Welcome to Terminal 3. Your flight WILL be delayed.

    This is the funniest book I've read in a while. Like Douglas Adams, Ferreira whaps you like a wiffle ball from one hilarious set piece to another. The characters are highly amusing, with a subtle tenderness that grows as the story develops, and the grungy, alien-filled world has notes of "Rick and Morty." Ferreira has a style unlike any I've read, with sinuous, Slinky-like sentences that bounce down the page one surprise at a time. Highly recommended! This is the funniest book I've read in a while.

    As a fan of Douglas Adams, I found Terminal 3 as an equally fun ride as the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. I laughed aloud many times while reading this book. This book took me out of a reading slump where I wasn't enjoying any of the books I was reading during this time. Yet, the author's quick wit and commentary on 21st and 22st century life on Earth, and throughout the galaxy, really showed me that a book can be hilarious and poignant at the same time.

This story has lots of heart with its plotline about familial love. I was gripped to the very end because I didn't know how it was going to wrap up. Overall, it's a great read that I would recommend to anyone.

    llimani is a beastly talent, and what he’s written for you is quite something. Terminal 3 is this really weird, really quirky novel that reads like binging a new Netflix series or something. The episodic adventures of an ensemble cast of ragtag and emotionally dejected blue collar employees at a rundown spaceport terminal are so funny, I swear to Jebus... and at the core are these beautifully subversive themes of family, friendship, love and hope that hug your heart and never let go.

It’s nuts, it’s time travel, it’s social commentary about xenophobia and immigration, and it’s the prefect introduction to a perfect writer who’s carrying the Douglas Adams/Terry Pratchett torch with confidence and vision while at the same time forging his own path – and hopefully kicking off a new series that we can all enjoy for years to come.

    Lately I just don’t even know where to start with review posts, but I promised y’all a review of Illimani Ferreira’s Terminal 3 and I loved it and I’m excited to recommend it so I guess I better just dive in. This is probably the book I put on the #2020BeckyAwardsLonglist with the fewest expectations, as I knew almost nothing about the author or the book beyond the basic blurb.

This is probably the book I put on the #2020BeckyAwardsLonglist with the fewest expectations, as I knew almost nothing about the author or the book beyond the basic blurb. I picked up a copy after seeing it highlighted in an article on Tor.com called ‘Celebrating the Humorous SF of Latinx Authors’ by Jonathan E. Hernandez, but I was more excited about the idea of a space age adventure fueled by the intricacies of human/alien relations than the promised dark humor, which is probably for the best since my husband read it before me and was underwhelmed by that aspect. I found this book surprisingly warmhearted and was quickly invested in the story of Gabe, an earnest young man who hopes his new job as a security guard in the rough world of Terminal 3 will help him finally get answers about his mom who disappeared there years ago. I loved the whole cast and all the twists and surprises of the book’s chaotic and deeply satisfying plot. And while the comparison to Adams and Pratchett may have been overstated in my husband’s opinion, Ferreira made me laugh at least a few times. Anyway, setting the question of whether it’s sufficiently hilarious aside, I enjoyed this book a lot and would recommend it to anyone who likes fun and fascinating sci-fi with a lot of heart.⁣
