Description

It’s one kid versus an entire band of space pirates in this cosmic middle grade caper from New York Times bestselling author Dan Wells.

Zero is just one of 20,000 people aboard a spaceship bound for a new planet set to be colonized. The journey is over a century long but luckily, everyone is in stasis, so they’ll be safe and sound asleep during the trip. Everyone that is, except for Zero, whose pod has malfunctioned, waking him up a hundred years early. His initial excitement in roaming the ship alone quickly turns to a heart-stopping interstellar adventure when a family of space pirates show up, trying to hijack the ship and take the colonizers hostage. With everyone he knows fast asleep, it’s up to Zero to think fast and find a way to stop them–all on his own.

The full cast for this production includes Emily Woo Zeller, Margaret Ying Drake, Betsy Hogg, Josh Hurley, Jonathan Davis, Jennifer Van Dyck, Chelsea Spack, Charlie Thurston, David Shih, Eunice Wong, Eddy Lee, Allyson Johnson, and Polly Lee.

Passengers movie with space pirates

Earth has discovered two planets which could sustain human life, and have built two generation ships to take 20,000 people to each planet. Zero and his family (his parent's worked on creating the generation ship) are part of the 20,000 who will board the ship and be put into cryostasis for the 105 year journey. But 28 days into a 105 year journey, as the ship goes through the Kuiper Belt, Zero wakes up to find himself alone on a giant ship. Alone, except for the space pirates living in The Belt who are trying to steal parts off of the ship. Can Zero stop the pirates, and work out how to get his cryopod working again?

While this is on the surface a kids story, it is well told and engaging and good for the entire family. Kids will enjoy it, and adults probably will too. Adults won't have to endure it.

The science in this book is good, but also easily accessible for all ages. It easily describes things like the lack of set direction in space (the enemies gate is down!) and how asteroid belts work (not like star wars where you weave between rocks that are always clashing together), without descending into information dumps. The science is built into the story.

Main narration is performed by Zeller, with the voices for each character done by other actors. So each individual character has a very distinct voice. The multiple voices are seamlessly integrated together, and sound really good. There is minimal sound effects or music. It is used but it is light and subtle touches, so enhance the production but not overwhelm it. There are other effects such as doing slight voice echos when Zero first wakes up and is searching a empty space ship alone - gives impression of space and emptiness that really adds to the atmosphere.

Perfect for riding alone or with the family

It’s difficult to find books I can listen to when my 5 yr old is in the car with me. This is a really good and very cute story. One of the best audible Originals I’ve heard recently and definitely one of the better free ones.

Zero G

I picked this one up because I already owned many of the choice for this month’s free picks. I LOVED IT!

This is great for kids and adults! As an adult, I found it really entertaining! The voice acting, music, and snark from the ship’s navigator were great!

Kid or adult, I think anyone who listens to this will have fun with it!

Entertaining

I haven’t been a huge fan of the free originals so far, and I figured with this being upper MG, something I don’t usually read, I would continue to be disappointed. However, I was wrong. This book was well-written and expertly performed. It’s the first of the free originals that I would’ve paid for.

Adorable Family Friendly Adventure

Characters were well done, and story was a good blend of simple, funny, and thought provoking. Obvioisly intended for a young audience, but I found it enjoyable to listen to with my kids as well. Nice listen for a car trip.

great listen with my son

This was the first full audio book with my 8 yr old. He loved and it gave us something fun to listen to in the car on the way home from school. He really got into it and wanted to listen every time we drive somewhere until it was over.
