5Excellent reading! Thoroughly recommended!  Apr 08, 2002

On September 11, 2054 Ithran Nek-Hanan (aka Nick) of the planet Selrahc, crashed his space cruiser into a Florida field. In his new novel, Galactically Speaking, author Fred J. Klingenhagen tells the story of how and why Nek-Hanan was charged with Capital murder...and what Floridian Leddie Fenhadden learned about this extraterrestrial.
In a well-researched story and with a tongue-in-cheek writing style that is humorous as well as inventive, author Klingenhagen unfolds a story of life in the future, in the galaxies yet unknown to us, now. And, you will read, that life then is not altogether different from how we act, now.
Nick's mission to Earth is to determine whether the people of Earth are advanced enough to join the Galactic Association of Star Systems, ecologically, financially, socially and intellectually. And it's the Enforcement Department's mission to capture Nick and bring him back.
Thus the story unfolds, as do the wonderful characters that inhabit it, here and faraway. And these characters include the cats of Earth who are able to communicate with the extraterrestrials. That look of disdain you often see in a cat? Its real...they really do think of themselves as smarter than their human counterparts.
If you want to find out what happens in this page-turner, and how John F. Kennedy was involved (that's right, John F. Kennedy), read Galactically Speaking. In this reviewer's opinion, Fred Klingenhagen is the next Gene Roddenberry (but with a great sense of humor) and Galactically Speaking should be made into a major motion picture, its that good!

5It's Different  Oct 28, 2005
By Lacey
This was a really funny read. I hardly ever laugh out loud when I'm reading, but I did several times while reading "Galactically Speaking."

5Meow!  Dec 23, 2005
By Potter
My cousin in America gave me this book for Christmas. I have to confess, I opened it early and read it already! I'm glad I did, because I am going to read it again before the holiday break is over! An intergalactic cat.. and it's not as preposterous as it sounds! I don't want to spoil anything in the plotline for you, but this is a funny read, and not just for sci-fi fans! (Or cat fans).

5I Am Not A Trekky  Sep 11, 2005
By Seanny Boy
I've read a lot of science fiction, and I thought it was impossible for someone to come up with something that is completly unique in the genre. "Galactically Speaking" accomplishes this. There are characters - including a cat! - that are entirely believable. Way to go. I hope there is a sequel soon.

4Maybe The Warren Commission Should Have Read This  Sep 22, 2005
By M. Trotter
A friend got my this book,since I'm into JFK conspiracy theories.

While I enjoyed reading the book, I couldn't see how any of the plot tied in with the JFK assassination. I have to admit, it took my by surprise. And the theory isn't as crazy as some other theories I've heard!
