Date Night on Union Station (EarthCent Ambassador Book 1)

May 3, 2014  by E. M. Foner
"Good comic science fiction is rarer than hen's teeth. This was a fun read." 
Kelly Frank is EarthCent's top diplomat on Union Station, but her job description has always been a bit vague. The pay is horrible and she's in hock up to her ears for her furniture, which is likely to end up in a corridor because she's behind on rent for her room. Sometimes she has to wonder if the career she has put ahead of her personal life for fifteen years is worth it. 
When Kelly receives a gift subscription to the dating service that's rumored to be powered by the same benevolent artificial intelligence that runs the huge station, she decides to swallow her pride and give it a shot. But as her dates go from bad to worse, she can only hope that the supposedly omniscient AI is planning a happy ending. "



This could have really been a great book if it had only been as funny as advertised.  I apparently have a different sense of humor than most others. 

Some of the plot was quite good and if we stuck with the whole matchmaking story line, this might have been a knee slapping, hearty chuckling, good  book  -but the author didn't and that's a shame.

 I found that the trials and tribulations of Kelly to not be as humorous as it could have been.  The never-ending discussions of gaming was annoying to someone who doesn't game, and the abrupt ending was...well, abrupt and it didn't make much sense.  I do assume that this was because this probably was never meant to be a series. But  the idea of one date and a marriage the same night in a back alley by an Elvis look-a-like was just too hockey for me.

I will be buying the next book because I did find the secondary characters interesting and can see that there is the chance that the story and writing will evolve into something I can relate to.
