I loved LOVED the Outer Earth trilogy from Rob Boffard – I was utterly bereft after reading the last one, so when Adrift landed (or floated by or something) I was all YAY.
Rightly so it seems because this, too was so so so so good. It was just exciting and clever and emotional, pacy and incredibly compelling.
We have ten tourists stuck on a ship that is, well, not that brilliant. Everyone else is dead and gone having been attacked by a mysterious force. Only the fact that their pilot has some savv ...more
Hop in as Boffard takes his readers on a thrilling adventure in space filled with action, betrayals, and secrets.
Adrift follows a few characters as they’re trapped in a tour ship as a mysterious technologically advanced space ship attacks a luxury hotel. Those trapped on the ship are regular civilians who have to work together in order to survive the unforgiving confines of space.
Adrift is told through multiple perspectives: Corey, a preteen, Hannah, the tour guide, and Jack, a hotel reviewer. E ...more

Rounding up from 3.5
Can I just say that I've been reading more and more thrillers recently and I love it? There's something gripping, obsessive, about reading a thriller. It normally pulls me right out of a slump. Adrift is no different. Each chapter has a different perspective and this allows you to really get in each character's head. We get to see their motivations, desires ...more
I had a hard time getting through this. While there seldom was dull moments, the uncompelling characters, uneven plot and bad writing made reading it a chore.
Perhaps a few too many coincidences?
Perhaps too many children? There were 2 which is too many!
Listened to the audible version but never really liked the narrator's voice,
not bad just didn't really jive with me.
Such a great read! Review to come soon!

The war between the Colonies and the Frontier has been over for ten years. During the war, Sigma Station or as it was known then Sigma XV was a mining outpost located in the Horsehead Nebula that both sides fought over.
Now, in the present, mining still takes place there but what was origin ...more

There was never a dull moment with this book! 4 stars
Told in a sort of survivor's account of an attack on their space station, the passengers and crew of a small tour ship become Adrift in space.
But, while it was all very exciting, I can only handle so much constant peril, and some of the characters didn't feel very well developed to me.
