Libby Carter a woman tricked taking a job as a deep space miner in exchange for a chance to Carter a woman tricked into taking a job as a deep space miner in exchange for a chance to an asteroid of her own Naturally work is sparse and her rock leaves much to be desired With a bit of amusement the locals brand her with the nickname TumblerGamblin does a good job of helping the reader sympathize with Libby s redicament She deals with many of the trials and tribulations that come from learning a new job in a new lace just as any regular resident of Earth might with a mundane job Her feelings towards her job and her co workers change with time and experience but it is her attitude that helps set her apart from her eers as the community deals with than one difficult trialOn the scientific side the mining company is certainly a Over Mintmarks and Hot Repunched Mintmarks plausible setup for an outer space commercial operation The habitats transportation and mining operation are all very detailed The only overly scientific uirks deal with theortrayal of weightlessness and the lack OF ANY MENTION OF AN AIRLOCKOVERALL any mention of an airlockOverall good read The cover is articularly fitting with the bored looking Libby clearly unamused at the magnitude of her redicamentThere are no over spelling or grammatical errors in this text I really like this book I should disclose that I helped edit it and have been involved with it for a while There are some One Day in December problems with thehysics but the story of Libby and how she deals with the reality of her situation I liked this hard scifi about asteroid miners because it felt so authentic to me I read a lot of SF so I ve got enough book learning to appreciate how a Alamo Story: From Early History to Current Conflicts person gets around in zero gravity and the effects of even small amounts of gravity The mining methods and euipment certainly rang trueI d say this is actually two books but that s not a complaint There s a uite satisfying climax andotential ending about halfway through I almost expected to turn the age and find another book or even some short stories but was leased to find another chapter in the continuing story of a young woman who takes a chance to make it rich then finds that maybe money isn t everythingBrand Gamblin Isabel de Solis, Soraya: Un Cuento de Amor En La Alhambra presents the material well The writing is uite decent I d give it my whole hearted approvalMy four stars is euivalent to screaming READ THIS BOOK I reserve those five Libby Carter wanted to get away from it all so she took a job mining asteroids as far out into the inky blackness asossible However. ,
Tars for when I find a book so compelling that I can t tear my eyes away from it until I finish Those are few and uite far between What a fun book I seriously don t remember the last time I read a straight sci fi book you know one without sexy shenanigans in the cockpit of a spaceship and this one was retty darn fabulous Brand Gamblin built an interesting compelling world full of characters that you d expect to meet while walking down the streetI really can t think of
any art of the book that lagged or lost my interest Ipart of the book that lagged or lost my interest I glued to the book from Libby s first experience after arriving at her new home Watching her find her lace in the community and make something of herself seeing her realize what she wants out of life the realization that she could be the erson she wanted to be kept the story moving and made you care about herDon t be scared off by the sci fi label Tumbler is a well written story with characters that ring true to life At heart it s about a girl trying to find her lace in the world without losing herself in the País íntim process It just happens to be set in an astroid belt in deep space Kelly Reading the Paranormal Full review can be found on my blog Gamblin s Tumbler is an enjoyable light Sci Fi adventure that is fundamentally about a young character facing struggles as she attempts to find herlace in the UniverseThe first thing that came to mind as I read this book was the Sci Fi TV series called Firefly Not because of the space ships or anything like that but because this book really grabbed that western in space and life on the frontier vibe that also was Under Lock and Key present in Firefly Overall I think it gave the story a different feel from some of the standard war aliens weapons type Sci Fi that exists in bulk In regards to the science in the novel it did come across as being believable with some good development of the mining systems habitats and transportation The author actually uses the fact the Libby is an outsider to enable the reader to learn and understand some of the aspects of the environment and technology whilst she learns about it herselfThe story itself is told in an entertaining and fastaced manner with various roblems and issues thrown up in Libby s ath as she tries to survive in a hostile environment Whilst the Lignin Biodegradation: Microbiology, Chemistry, and Potential Applications: Volume II plot isn t anything amazing it did keep me engrossed from beginning to end and I actually completed the book over one weekend The story did seem to deviate at times from what I deemed as the overalllot but I think this was the author trying to expand and develop the environment and society that I was reading about so I was happy enough to accept itThere are a Few Small Issues I small issues I with the novel but I don t think any of them would stop me recommending it to someone First of all the main character Libby seemed somewhat undeveloped For example aside from the fact that she Something Wicked plays the oddoker game I have no idea about her history what hobbies she has or if she has any real defining Velvet Ropes (Club Undercover personality traits The other issue I have is the ending the way that everything just falls into Libby s lap and she or less ends up with enoughower to do almost anything she wants was a little bit of a let down Up until that Freud and His Followers point I was rather happy with the overall story and direction the ending just felt and out of sync with the rest of the novel and seemed to be tacked on just to give an almost fairy tale endingOverall I think that Tumbler is an enjoyable light hearted read that could beicked up by most readers It doesn t have the most in depth character development or Her escape turned into a trap leaving her stuck in indentured servitude living on a tiny rock in space As she tries to dig herself out.

Lot but it is fun and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a uick read especially any young readers that are looking for a way to explore some Sci Fi literature This book was
A Real Treat At Less Than 200real treat At less than 200 I breezed through it in a few hours my attention completely focused on it the whole time I was reading The Pjesme pace iserfect as soon as Libby thinks she might have a handle on her life something crashes and she is forced to reevaluate and find a solution I had to keep turning ages to find out what would happen next and I really came to care about the characters by the end The only thing that was a little confusing was the time jumps between some chapters it sometimes took me a few ages to realize that there was a gap of several months since the revious events Tumbler is a scifi novel that is very Heinlein esue Small time main character works through struggles and makes good encapsulates the lot But the story itself while excellent is not as exciting as watching the characters Libby the heroine is a young girl who has no idea how the world works She loses her mother and then jumps head long into a deep space mining conglomerate hoping to somehow make good through hard work alone Unfortunately what she doesn t know just might kill her If the locals don t do it first Most scifi books are heavy reading and usually just not my cup of tea However Tumbler is fast aced while maintaining believability and a delicious sense of the ironic With such a wonderful combo the reader cannot help but be swept along I would note that this novel is considered Young Adult but anyone can jump
In And Enjoy It Iand enjoy it I thrilled to see this iece on as I feel that Brand Gamblin s next work will be even full of wit than Tumbler itself was Like Heinlein s juveniles before it and also like A'dan Z'ye Yaşar Kemal pal Nathan Lowell s excellent Solar Clipper series Brand Gamblin s TUMBLER is not so much an action tale as a story of a youngerson learning her lace in the world or in this case in the Solar System Libby Carter comes out to the Asteroid Belt to make her fortune as a miner but is uickly disillusioned as to how easy it is not to go about doing so uickly exiled to a tiny shack
"ON A TINY ASTEROID THAT SPINS "a tiny asteroid that spins rapidly that her home life becomes a never ending merry go round hence the derogatory nickname she gets Tumbler her first thought is to just knuckle down to what amounts to indentured servitude until she s earned enough money to ay her way back home where she will have to start over again at zero Still better than being the Tumbler she thinks But she has another think coming How she learns of this is a big art of this novel s charm a turning oint about halfway through in which Libby finds herself struggling to keep a little girl alive and conscious leads her to realize there s than one way to look at her situation and that the life of a Tumbler has as much opportunity as hardship especially if as Libby is one is imaginative willing to work and willing to accept friendship I think this would be a GREAT book for any young readers on your holiday gift list whether they typically go for science fiction or not I cannot recommend it enoughCross The Da Vinci Cod: A Fishy Parody posted from my review Tumbler by Brand Gamblin is a very good read It is wellaced and like most good science fiction is about The Collaborative Habit: Life Lessons for Working Together people handling a situation than the technology and gadgetry Ilan to get a hard copy for my wife and daughter Heinlein esue is a good description as it echoes his admiration for strong independent characters but offers better insights on communities. She gains friends and finds adventure Cave in rescues Curse of Rocky Colavito planetary collisions and other mishaps keep her new family fighting to stay ali.
