Have swallowed "Castaway Planet" by Eric Flint and Ryk Spoor yesterday. It's funny, I guess I really missed this kind of straight forward space adventure story with people against elements (and weird alien fauna).

It is basically "Swiss Family Robinson" in space, and I would have enjoyed it even more as a kid. I mean, all four children in the family are girls! And they like science! And games!

Also, one of the people is an alien, which I heartily approve of.

Mind you, the whole premise of this book is built on a pile of coincidences, so if this will bother you...  I noticed every time coincidence made an appearance, but it just made me amused, not irritated.
