    Description

    The Breakfast Club meets Guardians of the Galaxy in this YA sci-fi adventure by debut author M. K. England.

    Hotshot pilot Nax Hall has a history of making poor life choices. So it’s not exactly a surprise when he’s kicked out of the elite Ellis Station Academy in less than 24 hours. But Nax’s one-way trip back to Earth is cut short when a terrorist group attacks the Academy.

    Nax and three other washouts escape - barely - but they’re also the sole witnesses to the biggest crime in the history of space colonization. And the perfect scapegoats.

    On the run, Nax and his fellow failures plan to pull off a dangerous heist to spread the truth. Because they may not be “Academy material”, and they may not even get along, but they’re the only ones left to step up and fight.

    Full of high-stakes action, subversive humor, and underdogs becoming heroes, this YA sci-fi adventure is perfect for fans of Illuminae, Heart of Iron, or the cult-classic TV show Firefly and is also a riveting thrill ride that anyone - not just space nerds - can enjoy.

    Fabulous!

    A great adventure for those who love Star Wars and Firefly. It was an excellent mix of comedy, drama and sci-fi. Plus it was very inclusive of all types of people which I loved.

    The audio for this book was fantastic!

    The audio for this book was fantastic! James Fouhey did an amazing job with putting so much heart into his reading. I was rooting for the disasters the entire time. What a beautiful, diverse cast. The main character was hilarious and I want to know him IRL. And bisexual rep! 😍

    Good casual listen

    I really enjoyed the audio book as a light action sci-fi . Character depth a little light but still enjoyable

    Fantastic Book

    I absolutely loved listening to this book. Scifi like this, Mortal Engines, Read Player 1 etc. is one of my favorite genres. The story is funny, interesting, and action packed. Never a dull moment. I sincerely hope the author writes a sequel and honestly, could see it being a great movie, too.

    VERY YA

    Only big fans of YA or readers eager to indulge in huge doses of adolescent angst will be able to tolerate this book. The first few chapters were quite good, well written action and good character development. After that it devolved into continuous references to teenage fears and hopes which I suppose would be fine if I were interested. Had to turn it off and return. Just couldn't take it anymore.

    My favorite book of 2020 so far! Fantastic!

    I loved every minute of this book! Between the found family of a diverse cast of characters and incredible narration by James Fouhey, this book really is the perfect mash-up of The Breakfast Club and Guardians of the Galaxy. I highly recommend it!

    Light, Fun, Diverse Space Adventure

    I'm so torn on how to talk about The Disastersbecause there are some things that I absolutely LOVED about it but then the rest of it was just an average read for me.

    So let’s talk about the good stuff first.

    As a whole, The Disasters is an entertaining story perfect for sci-fi fans who aren’t looking to get bogged down into the actual science/tech of the world. At its heart, it’s about a group of teens who failed out of the Academy and are now the only ones who can save the colonies of Earth. Think big space adventure style. Lots of fun, plenty of comedic moments, plans that totally go haywire, and a good bit of action thrown into the mix.

    The group of former students hadn’t met prior to the start of the book so they not only are on the run for their life but have to learn to trust each other — total strangers — with their lives. I thought that was really well done and they were pretty entertaining. Each had their own little idiosyncrasies that made them stand out from the rest of the group.And the author did a fantastic job with bringing together a diverse group of characters together for this story and letting that diversity shine through and not just become a plot point.

    At the same time, there were certain parts of the story that never made sense to me, like why this particular group of characters didn’t make it into the Academy and how they’d suddenly be branded criminals. The entire first chapter or so was kind of all over the place and then the rest of the book followed the teens on the run. And still on the run. Oh look, another enemy, guess we’re running again. While within the scenes I was fairly entertained, looking at the plot overall wasn’t such a great view.

    The stakes were never high enough,or at least never felt like it. Everything always worked out and even when they were in trouble, I didn’t get the tension I’d expect (and hope for). There just wasn’t enough. . . depth, for lack of better words, to the story. Which doesn’t make it a bad book, just an average read for me.

    As for the audio, I really enjoyed the narrator for this one and I think that listening to the audiobook is the main reason I found this book so much fun. There were times that I switched to the print version and it just wasn’t the same so I recommend checking out the audiobook if you like them!

    I’d definitely recommend this to YA sci-fi fans looking for a quick, light read. The Disasters is entertaining and diverse and fun. Not for readers looking for a super sci-fi-y read (honestly at times I felt this book could have been set in modern day with a few tweaks and it wouldn’t have made a huge difference). Certainly a solid book!

    Fantastic queer YA sci-fi

    My only complaint is the prevalence of nods to other sci-fi works. Great, fun read, and the narrator does an excellent job of helping build the world with his characterizations.
    Representation matters, and it's nice to find it without being beat over the head with it.
    I look forward to Disasters #2!

    Liked the story line but

    The story was ok, however I am not crazy about the swear words or the unique romantic triangle. I did like the the story of the underdogs saving the day.
