Narabedla Ltd
Nolly, an accountant/opera singer, investigates the mysterious disappearance of a friend/client of his but ends up getting kidnapped by aliens and joins a troupe of human opera singers whose function is to entertain the 15 most powerful alien races of the galaxy. But in spite of his luxurious lifestyle Nolly can't help wanting to go back to Earth, but the aliens can't allow him to take the secret of their existence with him.
This was ok, but the characters seemed very silly and stereotyped, and the whole thing a bit dated considering it was published in 1988. Even the aliens weren't believable.
Score: 6.5
