The End of the Matter (Pip & Flinx #4)

By Alan Dean Foster

Rating: 2 stars

A giant black hole is munching its way through the galaxy and will encounter a Commonwealth star system in about twenty years and there’s nothing anyone can do, or is there there…? The fate of several billion sentients may depend on a seemingly insane creature called Ab that our hero, Flinx, has accidentally had dropped into his care.

This book didn’t quite gel for me. It felt like an author in the early stages of his career, who hasn’t quite mastered his art yet. I thought it needed a further editing pass and a rewrite in bits. Still, it was moderately entertaining and a good enough way to spend a few lunch times.
