"I loved this book, there were so many ups and downs it was such a good read! This book is the third in the space series, but this one was the best one yet. I really liked how when the book started, at first you thought that there was no problem and then after the murder was almost comited everything calmed down. Then all of a sudden there was a rocket on the way to take the first wave of people home because there was not enough oxygen. I liked how the end of the book we heard the future for all the characters it was a great way to end the series. " said.

"This is my favorite series on my library shelves! I was terribly disappointed to discover that this was the last one in the series! It seemed to be an abrupt end to a series that was set up to be a long-running affair! However, this one did fall a bit flat plot-wise about halfway through, so I'm glad Gibbs chose to make a graceful exit rather than continue on. It is still super fun and totally worth the read, but there are only so many plot lines that can involve the same 25 people in a very small space. " said.

"When someone on MBA tries to poison Lars Sjoberg, Nina decides to put Dashiell on the case whether he likes it or not. The problem is, who on the base hasn't said they'd like to kill Lars at some point or other?! And as if that weren't enough, there's a bigger crisis on the moon that is changing everyone's plans for the upcoming months and might be even more distracting than someone trying to poison Lars.

Gibbs has created such memorable characters to inhabit Moon Base Alpha. It is a little sad to see the series end, but at the same time it would be hard to believe there'd be any more than three cases for Dashiell to solve amongst such a small group of people. It feels like Gibbs wrapped this up at just the right time. This is a smart mystery with lots of great real science in a fun setting.

Notes on content: No language issues. No sexual content. Two very dangerous situations and one other altercation, but everyone ends up ok.

" Disappointing.....on so many levels. But especially because Mr. Gibbs decided it was appropriate to use a middle grade sci-fi mystery book to push an agenda on our kids. Homosexuality is not a subject I want my 8 1/2 year old to be exposed to yet- and if it was, I'd want to discuss it with her myself. I'd definitely not want to introduce the subject by having it subtly shoved down her throat in a book I consider to be nothing more than mind-candy/fluff that I let her read for fun. " said.

"This review will becoming from my 11 year old son.
I have read Stuart Gibbs books and I love every single one. I like how he writes it is fun, creative and awesome. I can't wait to read more because I love this Spy book series too.

My turn:
Stuart Gibbs is able to give kids of all ages books that parents will enjoy reading to their kids as well as kids reading them alone. Parents do not need to worry about language or themes that might not be appropriate for children of all ages.
The story is fun, and flows well with the different characters readers will meet.
Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher Simon Schuster Books for Young Readers for the advance copy of Stuart Gibbs Waste of Space (Moon Base Alpha #3)

" Great book to read for relaxing. Too bad it's the last one in the series. Loved the in the future epilogue. " said.

"This has been my favorite kids mystery series in the last couple of years. Sooo sad the trilogy is finished now! As a NASA nerd I really enjoyed the moon base background to the books, using recent technology that's already available now on the ISS. Colorful characters and a very nice and meaningful ending. Plus: I thought it was very refreshing (and important) to insert homosexuality as something natural and positive into a children's book - more authors should do that.

The only thing that mollifies me is that I haven't read two books of Gibb's Fun Jungle series yet, so that's something to look forward to!
" said.

" The book was good. I think it was better than the other 2 MBA books in the series. So why only 2 stars? Gibbs makes it a point in his story to show his view and support for the homosexual community. It's only 2 pages. But this is a kids book. Whatever your views are on homosexuality, keep it out of kids books. It's not something they should be talking about. Or reading about. " said.
