Elite: Mostly Harmless by Kate Russell

Elite Dangerous: Mostly HarmlessElite Dangerous: Mostly Harmless by Kate Russell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Fast moving, funny and with a pearler of a twist

Years ago I used to devour science fiction like there was no tomorrow. Then I was stung by a few bad books and went off it for years. The short story anthology, Fusion, brought me back on board, and wow am I glad about that or I might have missed this one. Elite: Most Harmless is a gem. It’s fast moving and funny. It’s one of those who-needs-legal-highs-with-books-like-this-about sort of books. And a pearler of a twist at the end. Quite a few twists along the way. It had me gripped from page 1. The thing is that I could so easily have passed this one by. I don’t play computer games and this is authorised Elite fiction, and I did wonder if I would need to be an Elite aficionado to get it. Not at all. Once it had hooked me (which was well before the end of page 1) I never gave computer gaming a thought. A great read.

  1. Sounds great. Got this nudging close to the top of my TBR pile. Looking forward to it.

  2. Useful information, Penny. I shall now place it on my 'to read' list - oh well, that'll be 145 titles now then!
