What is it like to live in 4519 AD in a suspended town in the Earth's Stratosphere and commute to school in your Inter Galactic Vehicle? How far do the adventures take you? In this story, you will find yourself traveling with Hazel, Richie and their alien best friend, Dmitri, on an exciting roller coaster ride of electrifying but perilous adventures from Mars to Enceladus, from Gly to Drethna. You will have to deal with the annoying doorbell, alien creatures and beings, while on a journey to understanding what Gurecoa is. ""An interesting take on the future in a well-crafted tale that integrates what education, technology, business, and everyday living might be like a few centuries from now. Throw in space travel and interactions with beings from other planets and it is a science fiction page-turner. Some might scoff at some of the ideas for the future but some scoffed at Jules Verne and Arthur Clarke, yet some of their 'crazy ideas' have become reality."" - Ed Massey, Retired Project Manager for Voyager & NASA Manager for Ulysses

THE GALACTIC ADVENTURES OF HAZEL - GURECOA takes place in the far future, where our planet is only vaguely recognizable. Hazel, Ritchie, and Dimitri (who is also an alien) are on an adventure to figure out Gurecoa. With quite a bit of sci-fi imagination, this book is an interesting leap into the future.

What I loved: There are some interesting sci-fi elements that imagine the future and life on other planets in a really engaging way. It is always interesting to take a leap through time, and this is a unique take.

What left me wanting more: The characters often fell flat, and the main characters were often not very likable. The book focuses more on dialogue than other events, so it is hard to really get into the characters' mindsets. I would have liked to go a little deeper into the characters and understand where they are coming from.

Final verdict: This book is interesting for sci-fi fans who may enjoy the glimpse at the future as imagined by this author. However, the book would benefit from more character development and deeper plotting.
