Moon Base Alpha has had its share of problems since the Moonies arrived. Problems much bigger than the food. There has already been one murder and a kidnapping/blackmailing. These cases were solved thanks to Dash and a little help from Kira, his friend on the Moon Base, along with Zan, an alien he encountered shortly after the murder. Now another killer has struck on Moon Base Alpha once more. This time the multi-billionaire Lars Sjoburg was poisoned (something no one is shocked by) and it is up to Dash to find the attempted killer. Beside this new case of the poisoning, something has everyone worried. All Dash wanted to do is enjoy his birthday, but of course things are never that simple on the moon.
It was great to read the newest adventure of Dash and the other Moonies. I had been waiting for this installment in the series since the title was announced on Stuart Gibbs website. It was a fast read that kept my attention. It had many funny moments in it. I felt that the characters grew throughout the series. It had a more realistic vision of space than most of the books or TV shows/movies than I have seen in the past. I’m pretty good at figuring out who the crime was committed by so I was not shocked by that. However, there was so many twists with the crime and how it was committed that I never would have guessed. I was sad to see the series end. However, the reasons for the series to end made sense. I did like how it ended.
If you liked the Moon Base series, I highly recommend reading the FunJungle series, the Spy School Series and the Last Musketeer series. All of these series are great reads that keep you entertained throughout them. All three of these series are also written by Stuart Gibbs. I finished reading Waste of Space on May 13th, which I thought was funny as it was my birthday. I also got a copy of Waste of Space for my birthday from my friend Marisa.
