    Fake-out beginnings are a huge pet peeve of mine, so that started things off on a sour note. Once I got past that initial disappointment, nothing about this book grabbed my interest. Normally I two-star anything I can't bring myself to finish, but in this case I couldn't get past th...

    I received this novel from Orbit Books through Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review: my thanks to both of them for this opportunity. When a book manages to surprise me by offering much more than I expected from it, it?s always a wonderful discovery: this was indeed the case...

    Rob Boffard does it again with an amazingly tense, and at times claustrophobic sci-fi thriller that keeps you glued until the last page. Sigma Station is in the middle of knowhere, connected by a portal, a way of travelling vast distances across the galaxy, it has become a by word for...

    Adrift turned out to be a different book than I was expecting! The synopsis had me thinking of something like a disaster movie. But it steers a little more into the action movie lane. Still, it was a story perfect for a summer flick -- a fun, page-turning read, straightforwardly told. ...

    LV: S?c uz koci?a. ENG: This one was a bummer. It is a huge achievment to come up with such a good premise and then write a dull book whith bunch of dull characters - I cared for noone. Took me four months and lots of willpower to finish this book. ...

    *copy from Netgalley in exchange for a review* Adrift is the latest sci-fi novel from Rob Boffard, also known for his rather good ?Outer Earth? series. The premise is an intriguing on. Following an attack by an unknown force, a small personnel shuttle is cast loose with a gro...

    3.5 stars The blurb on the front reads "An edge-of-the-seat epic of survival and adventure in deep space." I think I understand why "epic" but to me it was misleading. This is mostly a small story, in scope. A group of random individuals go on a "pleasant-time-waster" tour and en...

    A classic ?lost at sea? story, just set in space instead of on the ocean, Rob Boffard?s Adrift is a far-future tale of a group of people trapped in a tiny ship with little food, no comms, and nowhere to go. It?s Hannah Elliott?s first day on Sigma Station and she?s not doin...

    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, pa...

    The concept of this sounded similiar to one of my favourite doctor who episodes (midnight) so as soon as I saw it I had to give it a try. It's about a group of tourists who get stranded on a small tour ship after the space station they were visiting gets attacked. Its set almost comple...

    The publisher provided me with a proof copy in exchange for a blurb. Here's what I gave them: A claustrophobic and fiercely written adventure, Adrift is a crackling read full of intrigue, isolation and smart world-building. The story moves at a breakneck pace, every page dripping w...

    4.5 stars... Loved it! The suspense was great and there was non-stop action the entire ride! I literally held my breath through quite a bit of the book. The boys, Corey and Malik, were my favorite characters out of all of them, besides the pilot, Captain Jana Volkova, I liked he...

    I won this as an ebook from goodreads giveaways. I'm picky about fiction so I tend not to enter many giveaways for it but this looked interesting and the horsehead nebula has personal meaning so I figured why not. I also have to say that I know we're not supposed to judge a book by its...

    You know a book's good when you're reluctant to put it down at the end of your commute and are desperate to steal any moment possible to read more of it. "Adrift" is fantastic: limited viewpoints, so we get heavily invested in a few key people, see the situation from multiple perspecti...
