Demian's Thoughts:

For some reason, this book seemed worse than usual... I just didn't like it very much, perhaps because it starts off with a fairly stupid and unlikely situation and gets sillier from there. You'd think after three years of training you'd follow basic safety procedures more carefully! Sheesh.

Fireguard's Thoughts:

The Which Way Books about adventures in outer space tended to be pretty generic and uninteresting, and the first such book proves in no way the exception. Cosmic Encounters is a boring read and should only be sought out by completists.
