A Spaceship Named McGuire


Read by Phil Chenevert

(4.3 stars; 270 reviews)

Can a spaceship go crazy? Well, yes it can if it has a brain. And the new MG (magnetogravitic drive) experimental robot space ship does indeed have a 'brain'. Completely bewildered as to why the first six models of their supposedly perfect new ship model, the MG-YR, nicknamed the McGuire, have gone totally bonkers after activation and before they could ever be used, the company has called in the services of Daniel Oak. They suspect sabotage of course. Daniel Oak is the hard boiled private investigator with nerves of steel and a mind of the same substance. He is extremely expensive to hire but gets results; and he knows his way around crime, space ships and especially women. What he finds out is surprising! (Summary by Phil Chenevert) (1 hr 42 min)

Reviews

Good story!


(4.5 stars)

Story is text book Sci Fi. But Phil Chenevert makes it awesome. Pretty common for Phil!

Classic Sci-fi


(3 stars)

Phil is the best. I use the first name only, because I can never remember the spelling. Kind of sad because I have listened to everything Phil has narrated, with exception of the Oz books.

Too good, too short.


(4.5 stars)

To make up the time/story I was cheated out of, I listened to the first 5 and a half minutes 4 more times . Yes, they were that good. And after the reading, for some unknown reason my mind recalled Mike Hammer.

McGuire is a white boys name. I need a story about a LatinX spaceship thAt is struggling with Zees gender identity in a phalogocentric universe. That would be a story we could all endorse

Neat story


(5 stars)

Short story with a neat twist at the end. I plan to look for more stories by this author. Reader is excellent (as always!). Enjoy!

A product of the times


(2 stars)

and complimentary once you let him finish, but left me with a sour taste

Crime noir laced sci-fi. Very good.


(5 stars)

Phil does an amazing job on this and its sequel, His Master's Voice!

Mildly entertaining


(4 stars)

Without this reader, the story would be a 3. It's a little too cutsie for me.
