    This would make a great TV series! I have enjoyed Bob & Nikki since book 1. The characters are growing and maturing. The plots are expanding & becoming more enjoyable & complicated. The greatest thing about these stories is that Jerry doesn't think they have to be full of foul language and graphic mutilation & sex in order to be entertaining. I do enjoy a good hair raising action-adventure. Fleets , armies, scifi or fantasy fighting to the last, complex skuldugery and plots within plots, but Bob & This would make a great TV series!

Thank you Jerry & Book 11 will be out tomorrow? :-)

    Always one step ahead Conversational writing takes some getting used to versus narrative styles. My first thought was a BETTER mix of of both styles would make this story sing a bit more, I still believe that's the punch it needs. Characterations so centered around one person or cadre of people gets a little Warren down over time. Yet it gets interesting when a philosophy or trait of a central character explodes into a way of seeing life with associates and there stories come forefront.

Lots of potential with the cast presented. Mr. Boyds wordsmithing aside this story is still strong and the options available for further efforts are endless.

    Another joy ride! Fun reading! Would have read it in one session but my iPad died first and my eyelids were having a hard time staying up. Not as much Nikki in this book, lots to do with bots. I swear they are becoming human with loyalties and ties to old bot friends. Formatting remains an issue, but not as bad as in earlier books. Things like incorrect paragraph breaks, font changes, and too much white space. Nothing that gets in the way of enjoying the story, just momentarily takes me out of the Another joy ride! Fun reading!

I’m already waiting for the next one!

    Book ten Mistakes: I didn’t find any mistakes in this book, however I do think some kind of a divide other than a few spaces should be between the forward and the actual start of the book. Plot: There is a lot going on in this book. We got rescues, mutiny, bad guys, traders, stranded reporters, stowaways, and some space battles with really small body counts. Characters: It’s a very eclectic group that we have in these books.

    A fun read Giving this book a5 just because I really liked it, how's that sound. I discovered the Bob & Nikki books by accident on Amazon and they are a very fun read. Short and quick to read. I've gone through all 10 books in 11 days now. If you like a quick humorous read you can do much worse than these. In a way they remind me of the Xanth books with their constant return to a running stream of jokes based on a popular culture theme . Hope you enjoy them as much as I have.

    Still Enjoyable Fiction While there are some short comings in these stories, some tech issues which too conveniently resolve through sudden knowledge, or character flaws which turn into situational bonuses, the stories remain enjoyable and I have found it easy to overlook any perceived issues. Rarely do I find a series which remains as much fun to read as this one has been. In fact, I think the abundance of dialog would make this a great illustrated novel series.

    Commodore Bob This series is still engaging to me. Like others, I struggled with no chapters and all discuss, but this was the authors intent. Bob doesn’t have time to describe what he’s doing or seeing, because he’s living it. Something that struck me today is that I’d totally put a “Bob’s Saucer Repair” bumper sticker on my little beater as long as it has their tag line on it, “Murphy is our Shepard”. Hope Boyd see this and make a mint.

    Real talent but needs some polish Jerry"s story is great- very engaging. His dialog is...terrible. If I have to read one more conversation about how great the boss is and how much the bots like working for him, I'm going to have a stroke. Jerry retells the same scenario over and over, ad nauseam. Jerry has talent, but he needs to work on realistic dialogue. Having said that, I very much enjoyed the storyline. Real talent but needs some polish Jerry"s story is great- very engaging.

    Great fun read! Loved it. Have read all 10 in the last week, and I couldn't get enough. All the characters,as well as the storyline, are wonderfully written, and while being Scifi, the ongoing story isn't clogged with scientific gobbledygook. Definitely a very entertaining series. Now I guess I have to wait for book #11. Great fun read! Loved it. Have read all 10 in the last week, and I couldn't get enough.

    Another great story! Can I make arrangements to spend some time in an auto dock? I have a paintball gun and I want to join Bob's crew! If ever there was a group of more likeable characters, they'll be as had to find as Charlie's planet. I can barely wait to see what happens next! Another great story!

    Ridiculously great! Well, I don’t know what to say. I usually don’t like books that use magic technology to explain how their character succeed. However, Bob, Nikki, and the amazing cast of characters around them is always a good treat. I can suspend my disbelief easily, without a lot of struggle. I can’t wait for the next book to come out! Get to writing Boyd!

    An entertaining series This series has great characters and an interesting storyline. I’ve been hooked since the first book (bobs saucer repair) I recommend reading the series in order. It’s a simple interesting series with lots of interesting characters and situations. I highly recommend it

    What joy to read this series Thank you so much for the joy you bring to us readers. I absolutely love your style and topics covered in this series. I am a little sad the next one is going to be the last in the series. I will look out for a new books you might allow us to devour in the future, or present if I don’t know any better.

    Too much fun! These books do exactly what they should do. They make you smile, they make you remember fun times when you were a kid. They remind you how we should all get along with each other. I hope they continue for a long time.

    I was impressed with the earlier books, but these just keep getting better. They are not what some would call true Sci-fi but to me they are truly entertaining. They really make me want to actually meet an intelligent species, of the friendly persuasion of course

    Going to find lost fleet Continued adventure of Bob and Nikki, be sure to check logic at the door. It is a fast paced story that holds together very well. As I said the story is a fantasy with little in the way of scientific facts.

    Excellent story!! Oh boy, another Bob story! Poor guy, first he has one saucer, now he has a fleet. The next step is starting a "fleet academy" to train captains . These are good stories, I enjoy them a lot. Excellent story!! Oh boy, another Bob story! Poor guy, first he has one saucer, now he has a fleet.

    Another home Run This has become one of my all time favorite series. I love Bob and crew. I am ready for the next one. I don’t get much sleep when I get a new one because I can’t seem to put it down till done. They are addictive.

    Great quick read This whole series is light, quick and easy reading. The story is fun, characters are engaging and the timeline is completely unrealistic. No way that everything he has covered in only a few month but who cares it is still fun!

    Fun, then more fun! Again, I have had a wonderful time following the adventures of Bob and his growing crew. Great plot, fun characters, and a remarkable lesson on leadership. Interesting grammar and punctuation. Jerry must, himself, be from another planet...

    This series! A warning before you get started on this series. It is addicting. When you are done with one book, the withdrawal symptoms start manifesting. There is no help except to o read the next book. The cycle starts all over again. Keep up the good work Mr. Boyd.

    Another great addition to the Bob and Nikki saga! As more and more happens, and is resolved without taking it too seriously, Jerry Boyd has become one of my favorite writers. Write more please!
