My Review: Planet Thieves was an okay book that I found to be a little on the boring side. Maybe it was the whole alien thing or the pictures but the book just felt too juvenile. It was hard to finish this book but I pressed on since it is my book club’s book of the month. In the end the book had a fairly good ending. It showed how much team work matters and how sometimes being a leader isn’t what you expected. In addition, there were several minor cuss word. Overall, I didn’t particularly enjoy this book, yet it might appeal to younger audience or someone who really enjoys science fiction.
