Publisher's Summary

The third part of the laugh-out-loud sci-fi adventure series, from the author critics are calling "the new Douglas Adams."

Cal Carver, petty-criminal turned space adventurer, is on a suicide mission - and he really hates suicide missions. But this time it's to save his best buddy, Splurt, who has been taken prisoner by the elderly assassin, Lady Vajazzle, and the evil Zertex corporation.

When they discover that the ship carrying Splurt never made it to Zertex, their search leads them through a wormhole to a mysterious planet unlike any they have seen before. Will they survive this strange new world and finally find their friend? And, more importantly, does he even want to be found?

Packed with gladiator battles, angry bees, a big thing blowing up, and the return of the galaxy's oldest assassin, Space Team: The Search for Splurt, is the rip-roaring conclusion to the first Space Team trilogy.

Love Space Team

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I absolutely would recommend this. It's fun, funny and full of adventure!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Space Team: The Search for Splurt?

Cal and the space squirrels - dead and alive :)

Have you listened to any of Phil Thron’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I have listen to Phil Thron in a previous Space Team book and he does a great job

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Lots of parts moved me to chuckle out load and garner strange looks from my family

Any additional comments?

Loved it.<br />It's space opera and humor.

Second time listening to it. Barry delivers space opera with a kick to the ballocks while Phil is; hands down, one of the best performers to grace Audible. And Im saying this as audio book fan that was listening to audiobooks before Audible was a thing.

While waiting for more Barry J. Hutchison, I found more Phil Thron. Outstanding job to both of you. Keep up the exceptional work. Now if you'll excuse, I need to re-listen to the next book. I have never re-listened to a book before this series.

Great!

It was laugh out loud funny. The characters where dynamic and different from each other. The dialogue is very believable. The narrator is a very very good too! He brings the characters to life.Please Mr. Hutchinson write faster, I can't wait for the next book to come out.
I usually don't try books that are not rated by at least 500 people. This book totally changed my mind. Can't judge a book by how many people rated it. Great recommendation Audible.

best yet

Cal Carver has done it again with this latest iteration in the series! He (and his friends) continued to bungle their way through, with humor, grit, and grand incompetence in so many ways.
This is perhaps the best in the series balancing action, story driven emotional impact, and humor throughout.
I thoroughly enjoyed it from page 1 through the very end.
I don't know where the series is going, but I sincerely hope the author keeps moving forward with it.
Most enjoyable.

Lot of &quot;what's his name&quot;

Would you listen to Space Team: The Search for Splurt again? Why?

Humor mostly. Maybe a bit repetitive, but funny anyway.

What other book might you compare Space Team: The Search for Splurt to and why?

Not a book, a movie - "Galaxy Quest". Some characters do not know what to do, some even do not have names - like crewmember nr 5 or Zortex Guy 1.

What does Phil Thron bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He is really good with putting different voices to characters. Some dramatizations have less variety than this one narrator performance.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Not that kind of book.

Any additional comments?

Characters are still very 2D (as in previous books in the series). Author attempts to add some depth to main character by memories of lost family, but it just doesn't work well. Other than this it is a fun and easy book.

Fricking brilliant

love them to bits. All of them. Yes even that one and the other one that you didn't think was worth it but really was in the end when you found out what they meant. and that obvious thing that you want to compare it to well it's better than that.

Might be my fave so far...

Great SpaceFiction series... Especially if you love puns, bad jokes, and shiz hitting the fonkin' fan every time you turn around... Yeah, silly, juvenile at times, and light on science, but nonetheless thoroughly enjoyable, and lol funny from beginning to end... Think this is my fave bc some really nice deeper content... Friendship, teamwork, and never leaving any, umm, space entity behind... Some finely done emotional moments amongst the high-jinx... As a tease, there's an addition to the team that'll fit right in, given its, errr... ummm... odd nature;). Worth every penny!
