Catstronauts: Digital Disaster: 09/17/20

Catstronauts: Digital Disaster

Catstronauts: Digital Disaster by Drew Brockington is the sixth book in the Catstronaut series. A billionaire has built a luxury space hotel, completely automated and run by an AI. The Catstronauts and some plucky space camp kittens have been invited to spend a few days testing out the site.

In the modern day sense, Digital Disaster is inspired by Space X. More precisely, it's inspired by the push for space tourism for the ultra-rich, although, space hotels have yet to exist.

For readers who know some classic scifi, will recognize the hotel as the space station in 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968). Readers will also be correct in assuming the hologram AI will have similar problems to HAL-9000.

I don't know if a seventh one is planned but if one is released, I will definitely read it.

Five stars
