Space Case

15 Dec

Unknown-1

As I started to listen to Stuart Gibbs’ Space Case, I had a little flashback to the 1970’s TV series Space 1999. Both Space Case  and Space 1999 feature moon colonies named Moonbase Alpha.

Humor and suspense combine in this space mystery. It is the year 2040 and twelve-year-old Dashiell Gibson is famous the world over for being one of the first humans to live on the moon and bored out of his mind. It’s not the great space adventure everyone told him it would be. When Moon Base Alpha’s top scientist turns up dead. Dash senses there’s foul play afoot, but no one believes him. There are lots of suspects, but it is easy to keep track of them. Although parts of it are predictable, the ending was a surprise.

Kids, particularly boys, interested in space travel or mysteries will really enjoy this fast paced adventure.

I listened to the story on CD (provided to me by Audiobook Jukebox). It was well narrated by Gibson Frazier, who has also narrated other books by Stuart Gibbs. Although an adult male he does a good job giving voice to characters from young girls to old men. The audiobook, on 6 CDs, runs about six and a half hours.
