I really enjoyed this book as it put a twist to the original plot of humans wanting to travel to space and so this book really kept you captivated as it wasn’t the same story which has been told by many other authors.

Loved the story and the plot. Really great how it uses maths and science too.

Really great book that I couldn’t put down. Loved how it uses science and maths in it. It was great way of seeing how the future is like there.

Satellite is a beautiful story in which the reader subjects to experiencing a completely different way of life through the eyes of the main character. The most distinct trait of this book is the simplified grammar, and text speak. While I do see the effect this has with the book being set in space where everything simplified to maths and physics rather than elaborating with words, I found it a bit offputting and didn’t particularly like it. However, the purity of the simplified speech emphasises the beauty of the imagery described in this book, enforcing the power of the words on the paper. I found I engaged with the pictures portrayed in this book more than I would in others. Highly recommend. Really captivating story.

The book, Satellite, really created a new kind of story that I’ve never read before. I couldn’t put the book down. The characters were unique and the story created new ideas about space travel.

The first part of the story was quite slow but the story changed and took a faced paced turn.

The author has given a depth perspective towards life in a space station as a teenager. As I am a slower reader, I found Satellite was a quite lengthy book, however it was interesting to see all the adventures that Leo and his family/friends have went through. I would definitely recommend this book for fast readers.

Very interesting and written in an informal tone. The book describes the journey of the three teenagers born in space. It is a page turner and gives very interesting details

I found this book absolutely amazing. I have read three of the books so far and this one was written so well. I love the style of the writing and how it associates ‘slang’ into it to relate it to the fact that this book is about teenagers and their dream to come home. The ending was a content one, but that whole build up throughout the book wasn’t quite as I had pictured at the end. None the less I still found it to be a great read!

This book is amazing!
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes sci-fi, and it was filled with facts that made it even more interesting.

It is a moving book about Leo and his friends Libra and Orion who were born in space and are finally going back to Earth. As the 3 of them battle the changes gravity brings, Leo struggles to decide whether his home is on Earth or back among the stars.

It took me a while to get into this book but enjoyed it overall, especially the main character’s excursions into space and the time he spends on earth.
Personally I found all the technological lingo quite off-putting, however I appreciate it might be what some readers find the most fascinating!
