Many thanks to NetGalley and Little Brown Book Group for sending me a free copy of this book in exchange for a fair and unbiased review
Wonderfully crafted characters and a captivating story make for a great read. The story was well thought out and gave an interesting take on what would happen in this scenario.

I was in love w ...more

There was never a dull moment with this book! 4 stars
Told in a sort of survivor's account of an attack on their space station, the passengers and crew of a small tour ship become Adrift in space.
But, while it was all very exciting, I can only handle so much constant peril, and some of the characters didn't feel very well developed to me.

Rounding up from 3.5
Can I just say that I've been reading more and more thrillers recently and I love it? There's something gripping, obsessive, about reading a thriller. It normally pulls me right out of a slump.

Adrift is the latest sci-fi novel from Rob Boffard, also known for his rather good ‘Outer Earth’ series.
The premise is an intriguing on. Following an attack by an unknown force, a small personnel shuttle is cast loose with a group of passengers inside. Damaged and alone, the passengers have no obvious way home, no way to signal for help, and only each other to rely on. That tension, the sense of being in a fragile bubble when the environment is activ ...more
