    1. Recently I've been shepherding our fleet of office computers through a series of long, boring software upgrades, which meant a lot of downtime while waiting for the next reboot. Luckily, I had my phone with me, and a tempting selection of Kindle freebies to choose from so: to the slush pile!I'm happy to say that Bypass Gemini was actually not half-bad. The free sample is pretty representative of the rest of the book: think '80s sci-fi pulp novel (the silly, self-referential kind, not the serious [...]


    2. Buckle up for a trip to the distant future and a life and death space race in Bypass Gemini by Joseph Lallo.A Little About Bypass Gemini:Just when you think you've hit rock bottomTrevor "Lex" Alexander had it all - a celebrity career as one of the galaxy's greatest race pilots and all the glitz and glamour that goes with ituntil his ties with the mob get him tossed from the racing world and send him spiraling to society's dregs. Reduced to nothing more than a nickel and dime currier, when he's n [...]


    3. I keep going back and forth between 3 and 4 stars, because while this book was reductive and a little long-winded, it was also hilarious. It comes from a place of friendly ribbing of established tropes in naval sci-fi and cyberpunk. I actually laughed aloud in a few spots, and I read it almost straight through. I'm a sucker for cyberpunk


    4. A fun and entertaining story. The main character starts out as a more-or-less amiable loser who's struggling with a bad situation largely of his own manufacture, but he is making some attempt not to make matters worse by getting involved (again) with organised crime. As the story progresses, he steps up and acts increasingly unselfishly, using his one skill (he's a hot-shot pilot) and a number of powerful pieces of experimental technology obtained from a psychotic inventor to pull off highly unl [...]


    5. If you follow my reviews, you'll know that I rarely give a book 5 stars. Maybe I'm overly critical, maybe I'm just too damn picky, but few books--in my opinion--deserve top marks.Joseph Lallo's "Bypass Gemini" deserves 5 stars.Mr. Lallo was a fellow finalist in the "Kindle Book Review's Top Indie Books of 2012". We exchanged books as a professional courtesy. I am now convinced I got the better end of that exchange. This book was well written, had excellent pacing, and possessed enough dry wit an [...]


    6. Cross Roger Moore-era James Bond (humor and gadgets) with old-fashioned space opera, add a touch of hard-boiled noir for flavor, and finish it off with a scoop of Han Solo. That's about how this book feels.The plot, naturally, is relatively straightforward and simple. A down-on-his-luck racer gets roped into a courier job, taking a mysterious woman's equally mysterious package across the galaxy while avoiding any entanglements with the authorities. Along the way, he runs into a certifiably-mad ( [...]


    7. Space Opera. Aventuras espaciales. Light Sci Fi. El estilo de escritura me recordó más la fantasía que SciFi, pero como el autor lo reconoce en sus palabras finales, su especialidad es la Fantasía. Bueno, ligero, con personajes entretenidos.


    8. Shooting out of the darkness, dodging plasma cannons, flying in full stealth mode, blasting with EMP pulses, dumping engine heat as a weapon, flying out of windows, wrestling with security forces, using invisibility devices, making friends with insane engineers, planning with AIs, all this and more happens in this amazing book. It is one exciting, seat-of-the-pants, rollercoaster ride through space and as Joseph Lallo turns his hand to Science Fiction.Our hero Trevor " Lex " Alexander used to be [...]


    9. This is a solid light SF adventure yarn. I was pleasantly entertained throughout. It's the first in a series, but the author doesn't stint on giving a proper ending to this volume - it's not one of those "leave it on a massive cliffhanger" type openers. And since it's free on kindle, you certainly can't complain about the price!I intend to pick up the second book in the series to see if Mr Lallo can deliver again.


    10. A great readI read many science fiction and fantasy books and am always looking for new books/authors that grab my attention and hold it causing a new binge reading session. This one did that. This book is an entertaining mix of Inspector Gadget, Indiana Jones, and Star Wars. I'm going to stop writing and download the next book now.


    11. Great fun In the classic science fiction adventure genre, this was a fun romp. The action was right, the villains were generally well thought out, and the science fiction was just the right amount.




    12. A little predictable in storyline and characterisation, but a decent enough read. Somewhat reminiscent of sci fi from several decades back.


    13. Great read It was very entertaining great character building can’t wait to read the next couple books I would recommend this book to my friends


    14. I picked up Bypass Gemini for free through Kindle. It appears to always be free to anyone, so I'm not sure if that's necessary to say or not, but there it is. What first drew me (aside from the unbeatable price) was the gorgeous cover. I try not to judge a cover too harshly because I know they're hard to get right, but this one is so good and makes me wish the book existed on physical form because it would look great on a bookshelf. Fortunately this book has a lot more to offer than just a pret [...]




    15. Not bad at all. Crisp writing. Good characters.Get somewhat cluttered and frantic in spots, but all in all? Very nicely put together brain candy



    16. This is not hard-scifi. In fact, its as soft as you can get; Much of the tech is more magic than science. And the constant misfortune of the protagonist is fairly implausible. But if you can look past that, this book is tons o' fun, plenty of action, plenty of exploration, unpredictability, twists and turns and brushes with death.When i started reading this, i though as if i might give up on it, due to some awkward & clunky dialog. But very quickly the dialog improves a lot and the story is [...]



    17. Starting in 1961, Harry Harrison wrote a series of farcical, far-future, SF comedy novels about a character known as The Stainless Steel Rat. While the Big Sigma series is not pure farce/comedy, they are still very reminiscent of the Harrison books.This book series is set an indeterminate date in the far future where humans have filled a significant percentage of the galaxy. The main character is a man of questionable ethics but, as anyone who loves Han Solo knows, such men are often the best pe [...]


    18. This is the complete review as it appears at my blog dedicated to reading, writing (no 'rithmatic!), movies, & TV. Blog reviews often contain links which are not reproduced here, nor will updates or modifications to the blog review be replicated here. Graphic and children's reviews on the blog typically feature two or three images from the book's interior, which are not reproduced here.Note that I don't really do stars. To me a book is either worth reading or it isn't. I can't rate it three- [...]


    19. Overall for a self-published book, this one was great. I'll start off with what I liked. The characterization of Karter and Ma was easily my favorite part of this book. They are both funny, and if there were a "Karter and Ma interacting with people book" I would totally read it. I also thought the world-building was pretty good. The descriptions of the different environments was good and it felt like there was some actual science behind things even though it's definitely fictional in that a lot [...]



    20. I had the pleasure of being a finalist in the Kindle Book Review Best Indie Books Contest in 2012 with author Joseph Lallo. Both of us were in the science fiction/fantasy category (and we both lost to Hugh Howey, which is kind of like losing to Spartacus at Flanders—which is to say, you're a little overwhelmed by the company and just excited to be in the same contest/race). Joseph and I traded books, and now, over a year later, Bypass Gemini finally made it to the top of my stack of must-reads [...]


    21. Black and WhiteThis book is Bypass Gemini by Joseph Lallo. Joseph was born in Batonne, New Jersey, and his eyes were never set writing books what so ever. He was interested in tech and got a master’s degree in computer engineering. He then became a writer in 2010 when a friend convinced him to publish his works because he felt it was worth a read by thousands. Was his friend right? Thats for you to decide. In this book you have the character Lex who was a famous racer back in the day. One thin [...]


    22. Lallo's Bypass Gemini ended up as one of the finalists in the 2012 Kindle Book Review Contest along with my parnter's book, Contract of Defiance. Several of the finalists passed each other copies to read and recently, Tammy Salyer started into Gemini. She would frequently laugh and then read out loud some of the more witty sections of the book. Even when she wasn't re-reading bits for my enjoyment, she was constantly snorting, chuckling, and laughing out loud. I had to see what the deal was with [...]


    23. I read this book after Unstable Prototypes but after I realized it was the first of the series. Coming into it backwards gave a different view of the story than many readers would have. There were flaws in the first book (Bypass) but I already knew how they would be polished for the second (Prototypes). This let me gloss over the rough edges of prose and development of the characters.The characters are probably the first thing to mention. They are fairly detailed, with distinct personalities. I [...]
