Publisher's Summary

It's the 25th century, and the American President has taken over the world. Meanwhile, after a cleaner unplugged his cryogenic freezing machine by accident, Detective Inspector Capstan wakes up to find that he's been in a state of suspended animation for more than 400 years. As he's forced to adjust to life in the future, he finds himself reinstated as a policeman, and together with the great-great-great-great-grandson of his former subordinate, Sergeant Dewbush, he's put on the case of a missing cow.

IF demolition man was an absurdist comedy

Police man from the past, becomes police man in the future and then hunts for expensive cows. The danger with absurdist comedy is that it tends to be very binary; it either connects with you or it doesn't. If you don't get hooked on the premise, then the books as a whole isn't gong to make you laugh. I'm usually a big fan of the genre, but this book didn't connect with me at all.

Fantastic Narrator

The story was funny and the narrator brought it all together. The President's American accent was great!

Horrible

This book was referred to me because it was funny. It is not only the most boring, droll book ever but it’s repetitive. We get that the robot and the GPS and everything else do nor hear you the first, second, and third time that you speak you don’t have to go through the conversation on repeat for eight or more times. Horrible

A Cold Open

Story is fun, but not much is explored. The setting is given in exposition. The characters have little development. The main character wakes up to find out his wife, children, friends, and colleagues are long dead. But he acts as indifferent to it as he would the weather. That said, it's the first book, and look forward to future ones.

Fun perspective not fully developed.

The story was kind of fun. Every time I got to enjoy something about a character it was never flushed out, everything felt static. The story ended abruptly without any real resolution. I assume this will be book 1 in a series I want to give a.passable grade for this attempt, but it feels like a second or 3rd draft. it isn't easy to write humor and I appreciate what was crafted here. I will probably get the next one to try and hear if he made a better book.

Fun book with a great narrator

It’s a fun book and it was just what I was looking for. A simple story with funny twists and turns. And fantastic narration that brings the story together. I want to read and hear the other books in the series. Now please :)

Simple silly fun

I liked it. This one is a hit or miss I suspect. Most will love it, but some will miss the humor here. Feels a lot like the popular Space Team adventures, and I mean that is a good way. I'll certainly see what else this author has to offer!

Great start to a series

This book is a brilliant start to the series and very well narrated. The book follows on from the previous series, except it is now set in the 25th Century where Capstan has been cryogenically frozen and then defrosted by mistake. The story follows Capstan and Dewbush as they investigate the theft of a cow, which has been taken to one of the moons of Jupiter. Very funny book which I highly recommend

Truly awful narration.

I had read all the Space Team books so decided to give the audible versions a go. They weren't quite as funny as the books but were still excellent. What next then? Well, Space Police book one was quite decent and so I got the audible version which was only £2.99 because I own the kindle version. It seemed like a no brainer. I only listen to them when I am walking the dogs for an hour in the morning anyway. So why only 1 star? Jack Dundon, the narrator, is awful! Truly awful. The first thing I noticed was how effeminate he sounds. It doesn't matter how tough the character, he will sound effeminate, effeminate and very middle 'clarss'. He occasionally attempts a working class accent, which just comes across as middle class, but a little bit louder. I've only met 5/6 characters so far and they all sound virtually the same. And possibly even worse is his constant need to make every sentence sound like a paragraph. I have listened to slightly over 1 hour and that is enough, I've read the book, I will make do with that. I'm just grateful it only cost £2.99, and that was too much in the end.

Great narration - loved the characters!

I was recommended this book by a friend - normally the genre is not my cup of tea - and I decided to get the audiobook so I could listen to it in the car. I was surprisingly drawn by the story and all the different characters, who each had great, and sometimes hilarious voices! Reminded me a bit of the Dirk Gently books. If the author makes another audiobook out of the series, I would definitely give it a go. I don't really understand "English Atheist's" personal (and homophobic sounding) attack on the narrator. I think he did a great job, and didn't find it snooty or effeminate (not that that's a problem) - but maybe we atheists up in Scotland are a bit more tolerant! If anything I found the narration was a bit slow and I wished he would have spoken faster, but I think I heard the audible app lets you speed it up if that suits you better.
