All those jokes about "military intelligence" being an oxymoron come to fruition in this hilarious actioner based loosely on a real situation from Hubbard's life. The nation of Colodor, where most of the story takes place, doesn't appear on any map because of a cartographer strike, and has almost no military at all (one character demands "Send the entire Colodor Air Force after them! Yes, both planes!").

Naval Lieutenant Tom Smith discovers that he has a double, the notorious South American revolutionary and spy, Pedrito Miraflores
Ok, I admit I'm a Kevin Anderson fan. I even had Amazon.com search high and low for his "Assemblers of Infinity" because he was between new book releases (and they found it).
But my problem with this latest work is I went looking for Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones and instead found Martin Short (or Leslie Neilson).
This is a comedy, not one of Anderson's typical action-adventure tales. The main character repeatedly stumbles between cases of mistaken identity that, somehow work out in the end. If you read the book with this in mind it will be entertaining. If, however, you're looking for a Kevin Anderson book, look for "Assemblers of Infinity."

Excellent, would have made a good movie too.
The combination of Hubbard and Anderson in this rolling adventure is a real thrill ride for the reader. I found the tale was fast moving and always spiced with excitement around each and every corner. The satire on the CIA underworld was a roar! I often found myself laughing out loud during some of the hilarious situations Smith and Pedrito found themselves in! I thoroughly enjoyed this adventure tale with its original plot that actually was sparked by an actual experience in Hubbard's life during his worldly travels! It leaves a reader with the compelling thought 'What if a case of mistaken identity really happened to me?' and 'Do I have a double on this planet?' The intrigue of this plot is what keeps you reading and afterward tags this book in your memory as a great 'What If' novel. I loved the combination of these two authors, and so will you . Hubbard and Anderson are two of my favorites of Science Fiction and Adventure. I really recommend you get a copy, strap yourself in to enjoy the ride and watch out for those chickens!
All those jokes about "military intelligence" being an oxymoron come to fruition in this hilarious actioner based loosely on a real situation from Hubbard's life. The nation of Colodor, where most of the story takes place, doesn't appear on any map because of a cartographer strike, and has almost no military at all (one character demands "Send the entire Colodor Air Force after them! Yes, both planes!"). The head of ONI wants Tom Smith, the guy who's substituted for Pedrito Miraflores, to be more of a hellraiser than the meek, proper Navy lieutenant that he is, and gets his wish when Pedrito comes on the scene ("Booze! Cigars! Prostitutes! That's my boy!"). Meanwhile Tom is getting shot at by angry government officials and angrier women for Pedrito's misdeeds.
It's fun, it's funny, and it'll make a great movie (it's the novelization of a screenplay).
I picked up a hardback copy of this book at one of the local "dollar stores" in my town, and even at that price, I think I paid too much for it. While I highly respect Kevin J. Anderson's work, this is hardly among his best. Every so often, a Modern Day Established Writer is asked to finish the outline or a beginning of a story by a Respected Writer of Days Gone By, and sometimes it actually works. "Ai! Pedrito!" is *not* such a case.

The characters seem to be cut from old school "flat" (read "two-dimensional") cloth. For no apparent reason (other than Hubbard's apparently boundless ego, perhaps?), not one but *two* attractive young women can't wait to get the unwilling hero into bed faster than the speed of light. (Most women with whom I've interacted with in the real world *don't* act this way.) It was annoying when Robert A. Heinlein did it in his adult novels, and it doesn't wear well here, either.

I don't remember how many chapters I read before I *finally* realized "Ai! Pedrito!" was supposed to be a slapstick case of mistaken identities. Maybe Hubbard wrote more readable books than this one, but I'd recommend something completely different by Kevin J. (or his pseudonym K.J.) Anderson instead.

Move along. You don't need to read this book... ever.
This is completely unlike L. Ron Hubbard's other works. If you're expecting either Science Fiction or anything realistic, forget it. What it is, is insanely funny with a cast of outstanding characters, wonderful adventure, crazy situations and beautiful desciptions. I laughed all the way through it. My only disappointment came at the end, which I thought just a bit t-o-o-o-o much of a stretch.
This is another example of a failed attempt to modernize an otherwise grossly ignorant story. K. Anderson's attempt to revive this story only served to make it even more stupid. Here we are in the late '90s, and we have this old admiral listening to Lawrence Welk on the radio? I don't think so!
The opening paragraphs of the story seemed to have been written by an eight year old: the sentences were clumsy and filled with overblown redundancies. Next, the plot was ridiculous, and the portrayal of just about every spanish person in this novel bordered on loony toon comic book pap, bristling with ignorant racist observations and cliche stereotypes.
I really rate this book a big fat zero. If anything, it's a perfect example of vigorous ( in the way that a washing machine is vigorous) art attempting to pass off tripe to the public.
If you like spies and espionage, this would be a book for you. Ai! Pedrito! starts out a little slow and has a loose plot but, in the whole time there is something happening. This book provides a good mental image of what is happening almost like a movie. This book was a joy to read along with a funny twist. What do you think would happen if a South American revolutionary terrorist leader would switch places with an elegant, proper, and an identical twin of him that was a high ranked Naval Intelligance Officer? To find out you need to read this book. It will keep you guessing the whole way through.
