Freighter pilot Hal Spacejock refuses to work for gun runners drug smugglers and politicians Unfortunately this results in no customers no carg. Hal Spacejock is the first book I have come across that holds the special title of all the elements I love in sci fi done to such an extent that I cannot enjoy them Robots Check Spaceships Check Comically dunderheaded captain CheckThe last one was the real stickler I love it when captains get shown up by their crew but Hal Spacejock takes it to such a level that I cannot suspend my disbelief that he accidentally killed himself with a spoon at age 6 Here we have a one man crew of an old spaceship who has such a pathetic grasp of how his domain works that he cannot so much as work the docking lift The entire first uarter of the book was spent with him trying to release his ship from the docking bay and he couldn't so much as take two steps without something exploding or catching fire as a direct result of his stupidityI also believe that he wasn't sure how he wanted to handle robots He kept treating them as simultaneously property and outright people with metal skin and I have yet to find a story where the two can intertwine without any problems Every single piece of metal from the robot to the ship's AI to any given door or vending machine had a fully fledged personality yet they were all treated as disposable property without any word of backstory as to how such a schism was possible You just don't have true AI to that extent without some form of robot rights movementAs for my final complaint lack of character development The entire formula for Hal Spacejock basically went Hal breaks something robotAIsomeone else fixes it Hal insults them rinse and repeat I expected it the first time but by the time I put the book down there had been no actual character development and I didn't see it happening any time soonI don't know maybe it's because I stopped halfway through Maybe Haynes completely switches gears for the second half and makes things amazing But honestly at the rate the book was going and with how little room there was left for the second half the only way for Haynes to catch up on all the development would have left everything feeling rushed Which is a damn shame because it had all the ingredients for the perfect light adventurous humorous sci fi book in my eyes Haynes just made the mistake of mixing the bowl with a stick of stupid

Hal SpacejockO jobs and no hope of paying off the huge loan on his precious shipWhen a debt collector kicks in his airlock and threatens his life Hal grabs. I'm a sucker for scifi and I really enjoyed this book It wasn't genius for me that's Douglas Adams but it was pretty close I actually thought it would make a great movie because there's so much dry sarcasm and slapstick action that would come across better in film So I hope somebody makes a movie some day Good Luck Simon Haynes
