[Clare O'Beara] ☆ Dining Out Around the Solar System (Dining Out Around The Solar System, #1) [zimbabwe PDF] Ebook Epub Download  What a relief to read about a future that isn t the usual grim dystopia This is cozy science fiction where humanoid aliens from every planet in the solar system have immigrated to an already over crowded London Of course they open restaurants Two young reporters from a local zine who write reviews soon find themselves covering stories from bigotry and racial violence to deep seated governmental corruption A mix of humor, mild cynicism, and pointed social commentary keeps this very long book very readable.
This is a long novel, chronicling the careers of two journalists in near future or it it alternative future not sure London While I would have preferred that it be broken up into two or three shorter works, I do recommend the effort it takes to read The plot consists of many short vignettes as the journalists pursue their stories, bound together by the progress of their personal lives This makes it difficult to summarize, and I can only say, give it a try.
The author herself recommended that I try the second volume in the series, Dining Out With the Ice Giants, because the length was manageable I did that some time ago, and you can find my review of that volume on Goodreads also I enjoyed that book enough to try this book in spite of its length, and you might want to approach the author s work in the same way Either way, give it a go.
This was a whimsical, non traditional story that was enjoyable to read As both a lover of science fiction and of food, I especially enjoyed the reviews of alien food and culture interspersed throughout the tale of two journalists growing into their own in a familiar yet very different London There were moments here and there that felt a little like the author peeling back the world to speak to us directly, but overall the story had enough wonder and heart to carry it through Your mileage may vary, but if you want a taste of something new and different, you should definitely try this out.
I received a copy of this book for an honest review.
Epic tale of journalism in a near future London Could also get tagged crime and suspense, but a little too drawn out for the genre Brilliant, but best read second Review to follow Story and format just were not to my liking.
