really liked it
bookshelves: first-reads
Read from July 15 to 19, 2012

Nick Carter (no not that Nick Carter) learns of a possible plot to destroy the Earth to rid the universe of fines from the illegal download of Earth’s music from two visiting aliens. Along with his neighbor/friend (and possibly future girlfriend), her adopted stray cat, his cousin, and his boss he intends to save humanity by finding a way around copyright laws, but time is against him and getting everyone onboard presents a large challenge.
This was a lot of fun to read. There were a lot of laughs and that always helps turn pages faster. There’s action and adventure, some really great characters and even a little bit of a love story so it has something for everyone contained its pages. On top of all of that it was a stroll down memory lane for those of us who grew up on 70’s and 80’s rock or television programming. My only complaint is that somewhere around the middle it felt stuffy for a little while. It didn’t last long and got back to the original pacing. Do not let the footnotes discourage or intimidate as they usually contain some of the funnier stuff. I do recommend this one and hope that everyone has as much fun as I did reading it.
