    Hot on the heels of his epic Outer Earth trilogy, Rob Boffard has delivered his new book, Adrift. A standalone this time, Adrift follows the (mis)fortunes of a group of tourists aboard the Red Panda, a small tour ship from Sigma Station, out by the Horsehead Nebula. Things, as you migh...

    This was very exciting, particularly when the point of view moves between people. Deliciously tense and with a great atmosphere around it, it did feel a shade too long in spots. Despite that, I really enjoyed the whole thing and would enjoy reading more of this author. ...

    Interesting and suspenseful story about tourists being trapped in space in the midst of bigger political intrigue. The suspense is real and the scenes early on in the book that describe the initial attack are fascinating. (view spoiler)[The one thing I didn't particularly think was r...

    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...

    *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...

    (Disclaimer: I received this free book from the publisher. This has not impacted my review which is unbiased and honest.) 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 readin...

    this is about a "3 hour tour" group that is on their own, no hope of survival.... and the interactions of all the people on board. at first it's interesting, then it got boring, and weird as people had weird backstories; then they started infighting and got really nasty. I sk...

    Find this review at Forever Lost in Literature! I've been reading a lot of space-related science fiction lately, so I was excited to have an opportunity to read Adrift--and even more excited that it turned out be another great space book! Adrift takes place in a futuristic world ...

    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...

    Adequate was my first thought on finishing this mildly thrilling thriller. Exactly the same opinion I had on reading Tracer by the same author. Unconvincing sci-fi and just not working for me. Ray Smillie ...

    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...

    Thanks Goodreads giveaways for this free copy! 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...

    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...

    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. ...

    2.5 etoiles "L'aventure du Poséidon" revu et corrigé dans l'espace ... un huit clos qui aurait pu être passionnant tant sur le plan psychologique que sur le plan technique et politique mais qui reste à mon humble avis, trop concentré sur la description des événements et moin...

    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...

    This is more of a 3.5 but I will round it. Adrift was a heavily character-based story. This was one of the aspects that I really enjoyed about the story because I haven't read a book similar to this in a while. However, it did fall flat on some notes. One being at times it felt like i...

    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...

    This was a GoodReads giveaway book and a great win at that. I enjoyed this book as both a light read and for the twist on a theme i enjoy - mental distortion of people put in extreme circumstances and the mob mentality that can go along with it. This wasn't a book about space travel, a...
