It wasn't too big an issue. The world building is still a lot of fun. Flinx gets off-planet this time, chasing somebody who apparently know something about his past, although what we find out in this book seems to contradict what we found out in For Love of Mother-Not.

I thought Flinx was supposed to be some sort of science experiment, but that's not referenced at all here.

We do however get to meet an intriguing character who we only heard of by name and reputation in the previous book - though she doesn't get much focus. I'm interested to continue the series if only to find out more about her - and to see if Flinx's past starts to make sense. Flinx's strategy in prevailing over the villains seems a bit He takes a peaceful community and literally teaches them the concepts of fighting and killing. He says he's helping them fight back against people who are taking advantage of them, however we're not really shown anything that suggests the Ujurrians aren't completely happy with the deal they're getting, and the worst the villains seem to do to them before they turn is to hold them in contempt.

I also wonder what the digging-holes game was supposed to do.

An overall enjoyable read, and I shall be reading more of the series when I can get my hands on them. Jan 14, John Parvin rated it it was amazing Shelves: Aug 06, Brian Turner rated it liked it Shelves: This isn't a particularly bad book, but neither is it a particularly good book. The writing is fluid, so no problem there. It's just that it's very much a pulpy space fantasy that I felt would probably appeal better to younger readers than myself. I also hadn't realized this was part of a series, so I may have missed further meaning in some of the references.

Dec 29, Lara rated it really liked it Shelves: I've been wanting to get caught up in this series for a while, but it's been so long since I read any of the books I decided to start over. Then, I wanted to read the books in chronological order, rather than the order in which they were published which is mostly how I originally read them. I've decided to listen to them as well as read them.

This b I've been wanting to get caught up in this series for a while, but it's been so long since I read any of the books I decided to start over. This book has Flinx being adbucted, and getting a hint about his parentage.

    When he is free, he finds himself pursuing his abductor to get more information. This leads to several adventures as well as meeting the relative of a friend and making friends with a new species. There is also a new character who will likely grow into a problem for Flinx. He is suffering something of an identity crisis as he uses his ingenuity to access information and survive a variety of life-threatening situations.

    I really enjoyed the Uljurians and look forward to seeing more of them in future books. Flinx's special abilities and efforts to help others have led him to receive surprisingly valuable resources. But since he's not interested in the trappings of wealth, most take him for a youth with little to recommend him. That is one of the traits I like best about him. That and his inventiveness and practicality. Now I'm really looking forward to reading the next book, which is The End of the Matter , though it clearly isn't the end of Flinx's story.

    Dec 30, Aelvana rated it it was ok. After a disastrous kidnapping attempt leaves him with an enticing tidbit of information, Flinx decides to leave Moth in search of his elusive heritage. The one man who does know, however, is convinced Flinx is after him for revenge, so getting close proves to be more of a chore than Flinx hoped it would be. But for the promise of answers, Flinx is willing to do almost anything Although it's got a stronger plot than The Tar-Aiym Krang, and a more cohesive one, a number of elements still fall fl After a disastrous kidnapping attempt leaves him with an enticing tidbit of information, Flinx decides to leave Moth in search of his elusive heritage.

    Although it's got a stronger plot than The Tar-Aiym Krang, and a more cohesive one, a number of elements still fall flat. Flinx has exhibited virtually no interest in his heritage before now, and suddenly he's obsessed enough with it to chase a man across several worlds and possibly become a criminal in the process? The emotional aspect felt very awkward. On the plus side, Flinx is now on to several new worlds, which means new places to explore. The narrowed focus on Flinx and eventually one other character means the book can get more in depth with both of them.

    And the plot has a lot of crazy twists to keep things intense. The series is definitely improving, although I'd still hesitate to recommend this to anyone. The story more or less wraps itself up: Flinx has a small amount of information about himself that he didn't have before which still doesn't really fit that well with the description of his early life in For the Love of Mother-Not , and the assumed goal of hunting down the rest of his lineage.

    It's decent reading to continue the series but still no real high points for me. I rate this book Neutral. Oct 29, Andrew Staples rated it liked it Shelves: The plot, until our heroes reach Mysterious Interdicted Planet, is a string of unlikely coincidences. Flinx's troubles rarely seem to bother him much, thanks to timely intervention from Pip and his lethal venom. Several of Flinx's quests seem to serve no purpose other than to get him into cool locations.

    For example, he pursues his enemy to the Thranx home world, Hivehom, only to bumble and let him escape. On Terra, Flinx concocts and elaborate plot to break into the supposedly highly restricted The plot, until our heroes reach Mysterious Interdicted Planet, is a string of unlikely coincidences. On Terra, Flinx concocts and elaborate plot to break into the supposedly highly restricted Church archives on Bali - only to find absolutely no one is bothered by his presence when he is revealed as an imposter.

    In fact, everyone seem to bend over backwards to trust and help him. The novel really picks up when Flinx an the thranx he kidnaps and who subsequently appears to develop the thranx equivalent of Stockholm syndrome towards him arrive at Mysterious Planet. But even then the coincidences continue. Captured, Flinx and his companion are saved from certain death by no more than villainy whim - a whim that extends to letting them keep their gear and Pip.

    In fact, it could be argued that the villain is far less evil than Flinx. She doesn't kill anyone until forced to. Her major crime, presence on the forbidden planet, is one Flinx himself commits. But we're told she's a baddie, and Flinx is a hero, so Despite its flaws, Orphan Star has considerable charm. It's a fun read, a ripping yarn, and I've enjoyed reacquainting myself with it.

Compared to "The Tar-Aiym Krang" this is a much less exciting work for me, but is still a solid bit of space opera with a little detective tale thrown in.

      The mental image of an adolescent with a highly venomous, near symbiotic, snake-like creature coiled on his shoulder like some alien pirate's parrot, is so iconic I almost feel as though I had seen it for decades in the movies. Yet nothing like it exists anywhere else that I know of. Foster has created a unique yet strangely familiar vision with these stories.

      I seem to recall more about the next work in the series, "The End of the Matter," than I remembered about "Orphan Star," so the next one promises to earn more stars. I am hoping to read the entire Commonwealth stories including those not featuring Flinx and Pip.

      Foster is a very engaging non-pretentious writer. Jun 06, Brent Ecenbarger rated it it was amazing Shelves: This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. The main plot of the third book in the Pip and Flinx series is pretty standard for the first half, as Flinx attempts to learn about his parents and narrowly escaped a few deadly situations through the help of his dragon Pip. As soon as the book shifts to a new planet quarantined under church edict the story switches to classic Alan Dean Foster alien story time.

      The book ties in nicely to the events of The Tar-Aiym Krang, while also setting up future novels through the introduction of a major villain and a resourceful girl with abilities similar to Flinx. The ethical questions posed by teaching a sentient alien race about civilization and more to the point, war kept me enthralled for the entire last third of the book.
