The wordplay between the characters is just excellent, they ARE lots of fun, and the plot moves quickly ... but the books are rather short. Their one single shortcoming, the brevity of these books to this point, have been the only reason that they got four stars from me rather than five. I would rather pay $9 for a book that is 900 pages long than i would pay $3 apiece for 3 books that are 300 pages long, despite the fact that I'm paying exactly the same amount for the same number of pages in both situations. I just have a problem with short books. OCD maybe.
Finally, when I object to detailed sex scenes in my books, people respond with their opinion that "it is just another part of life". MY response to that is "so are bowel movements, and I do not wish to read about those either." So I rejoice in the fact that there are no detailed sex scenes in these books, and that they are without filthy language. This series can be easily enjoyed by SciFi fans from teens to long-term old-fogey-fans like me without having to put up with senseless filth.
I do not, not for the first moment think that anyone would have any regret for having bought these books.
Nicky, his space alien --but somehow human, not explained like a lot of other stuff--comes from a culture that in many important ways does not follow that push ahead spirit. It made her fall hard for Bob.
In this third volume in a huge series, Bob and Nicky make their living fixing broken flying saucers and rescuing stranded space travelers. There is more activity around Earth than one might think. This has turned out to be very rewarding financially. The Shady Oaks in the story title is an old folk home, one of the bad ones you read about from time to time. Bob and his pals, with includes a growing band of people and robots, Earthlings and Aliens both, take the home in hand in order to help out the oldsters imprisoned there.
Bob is a very good-hearted person. He has a nice dog. He liberates people from bad situations and treats bots like people. He and his friends are good people to spend time with.
Hard SF fans might not like the way the fantastic alien tech is treated. The author makes no attempt to explain or describe the alien tech, he just lets it do its work. In this series, I don't care a bit. I am just along for the ride. It is fun to hang with Bob and his cheery robots and helpful, caring friends.
Sometimes there will be pages of dialog with conversations and banter going back and forth with no clear clues on who is saying what! And then there is the cardinal sin of having two people speaking in one paragraph! I often find I have to go back several pages to figure out who is speaking what!
Never the less, I love the heck out of these books! I usually read a book in a series, then read a book in another series and get back to the first series later. I find myself binging on this series because they are so much fun!
But its still a ton of fun. The humor of the author shines through without becoming overbearing, which makes these books a true joy to read.
