[ Books ] Súperextragrande - Yoss (José Miguel Sánchez)

SuperextragrandeSuperextragrande by Yoss

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I read this book in the original Spanish language edition. I really wanted to like this book. A short science-fiction novel by a Cuban author -a novel perspective on the genre, at least for me. I didn't dislike it but I often found my suspension of disbelief ... suspended. I didn't quite get the author's sense of humour -but that's me, so YMMV. The basic premise is a sort of galactic vet who specialises in gigantic creatures of the cosmos, and his various adventures involving them -and the females of several pan-human species -the former, an excellent idea. The former rather bored me and made ,e think of 1950's pulp sci-fi comics. Worth a read, although it didn't quite do it for me. Again, YMMV and the author and book have received quite a few awards.
