Space Opera is humor science fiction in the tradition of Douglas Adams. I have not read good humor science fiction in a while, so it was a very exciting read. However, I found the novel to be a bit too modeled after Adams without enough variation in the ridiculous, to the point where you could easily predict the ridiculous. Doesn't that go against the point?
Unlike most novels, I enjoyed the beginning of Space Opera much more than the ending. The ending was extremely expected and then weirdly done - and not the good kind of weird. There is one aspect of the book, which I cannot explain without spoilers, that happened on nearly the last page of the novel. I feel it would have been better to have done it about midway. I knew it was going to happen from about the third chapter and waiting for it, and waiting for it, kind of ruined part of the story.
There are also parts of the story that the author held back with only spoilers. It almost seems like she couldn't decide what happened to a character, then half way through she decided. Instead of going back and reworking it into the beginning she just kept it as is.
