    1. *I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review*Okay that was one weird read. Talk about alien technology/sci-fi to the extreme. I don't even know how to put it into words without giving away the entire book, but here goesDana ends up basically sharing a body with Jay, a body that can transform into whomever has control over it (hers or Jay's), and all because she drank something nasty without looking at it. Giving the predicament she finds herself in Dana is actually [...]

    2. This is pretty much the most adorable little too-fast dark comedy horror story ever. It’s like author Nora Fleisher went dumpster diving in a bin full of genre scraps and came up with a fistful that read “horror”, “SciFi”, and maybe “that episode on Angel where everyone was turned into a muppet”…What can you say about a story which starts with a tired traveler who gets into her rental car, thinking about the model dogs she makes, and the most important sales presentation of her l [...]

    3. Have you ever read a book, gotten to the last page and wondered what it was all about? Well, for me this was one of those books!The Planets all Shone is an extremely strange book, in a sci-fi way strange.Imagine getting into a rental car and not realising that the soda in the car isn’t yours and then swallowing a mouthful of it. Then imagine that the liquid, which was revolting, made you physically sick, and then whilst you are sick, you are approached by a man demanding the drink back, and mu [...]

    4. I received a free copy of this audiobook in exchange for a honest review.I really liked the title and front cover of this book. It looked great. I should not have judged it by the front cover. I found this novel really confusing. A lot of it I'm just sitting here thinking "why would you do that?" or "where did this author get this idea from?" Truthfully, it feels like a mishmash of multiple genres which don't gell together very well.Also, the narrator is totally the wrong person for this novel. [...]

    5. (Audio book edition)"Be careful what you drink"I received a complementary copy of The Planets All Shone, from the publisher, author or narrator, via Audiobook Boom, in exchange for an unbiased review. I had no idea what to expectA woman on her way to give a sales presentation drinks a bottle of soda before realising it wasn't hers - and finds herself with two unexpected companions: one holding a gun and the other inside her and wanting to get out. Circumstances direct that they have to run and s [...]

    6. The Planets All Shone is a wacky, bizarre read. If you are in the mood for some very over-the-top silly, action SCFI, look no further.I listened to the Audible version of the novella. Personally, I think having a younger female narrator would have been a better choice. The narrator, Don Foote, has an old grandpa sort of voice and speaks very slowly. And some of the voices he used for the main characters were odd. The narrator would be great for books with a more senior citizen kind of audience, [...]

    7. This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of AudiobookBoom dot com.Really weird book. I wasn't sure what to expect. It was described as a body-switching science fiction novel where they're on the run, but it's more about the characters' interactions than about the plot. I guess it reminds me of some low budget 80s film where the plot is a stretch but the characters don't take it very seriously. Personally, I didn't fi [...]

    8. Over the top unbelievable plot and characters. That's a good thing. For those who are uncomfortable with foul language, this short has a bit. Just so ya know. It was an amusing and very quick read. Good for what it was, lots of fun and fast paced action - which includes plenty of violence.

    9. From The Musings of a Starving Author:It would seem, my literary foodies, that the main answer to genre fatigue I see in the modern menus of the world is genre fusion. Mixing the ingredients of multiple genres can be fun and flavorful, but it can also be boring and nasty. In today’s recipe, we’ll see how well our chef tosses together romance, science-fiction, and contemporary thrillers. Which will The Planets All Shone be, tasty or tasteless?Before we cut to the heart of the matter, let’s [...]

    10. Just couldn't get into this short novella. Found the premise interesting but didn't really find myself that involved in the story. Half way through, I stopped reading.

    11. It wasn't until asked me to choose bookshelves for this novella that I realized how out-of-the-box it was! Was it a thriller? Was it sci-fi? Is there even a name for it? It was so many things, yet none of them. I love writers who actively, or instinctively, challenge the boundaries of genre.As a true sci-fi junkie, I was all about digging into this story, but I was quickly tripped up by the narration. What an odd choice of reader. I felt like I was sitting around a campfire in the Old West, tin [...]

    12. This was an entertaining book, filled with witty dialogue and a unique plot. The characters were well-written, but not very likeable. Then again, the world is filled with unlikeable people. The plot was very strange/quirky (in a good way) - it was unique. This book was definitely different, so its worth the read for that reason alone. Plus, its a short story, so if its not your cup of tea, you don't invest much time. But I thought it was quite enjoyable. I listened to the Audible audio version o [...]

    13. My rating: 3.5 starsAudiobook narrator Don Foote rating: 4 starsThis was a pretty weird but fun and short book. I have read one of Nora’s other books and really enjoyed it. Unfortunately, I did not enjoy this one as much. Though, I do like the road trip aspect of it. It is fun to think of what would happen if there were another ‘soul’ inside your body that you could interact with. I also like the idea of a really famous rock star having 70+ illegitimate children all laying a partial claim [...]

    14. "Quirky, comedic sci-fi novella"Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?You need to be in the right mood to capture the dark humor and good writing of The PlaNets all Shone.It's a story about Dana, a traveling sales person whose body is occupied by a craxy guy after she drinks an errant soft drink left in a rental car. Crazies ensue, but Dana keeps her humor throughoutWhat was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?After getting past the bizarre premis [...]

    15. This is an interesting short novella with no clear genre maybe SciFi definitely not for the mainstream crowd but if you are looking for something different give it a try.This review was originally posted on Books In Brogan

    16. If you liked the movie Bubba Ho-Tep, you'd probably like this book. At times hilarious, at times heart-warming, always weird. I liked its gonzo storytelling, the twists and turns of the characters' relationships and its quick-quick-slow pacing. I do wish it had been a bit longer, though.
