Book Description

In this alternate history novel, what-if Ronald Reagan became President in 1976 instead? He continues with the moon landings, and declares that a moon base would be established, followed by a Mars Base by 1989. The Soviets decide to up the ante by building an interstellar starship, and send it on its way as the US establishes a permanent presence on the Moon.

Terrorism rears its ugly head, which will forever change American politics, but not the Space Race. The new President of the United States has to pursue these enemies of the U.S. to secure America's future. We follow America's progress from Moon to Mars to an eventual starship mission out of the solar system, where unintended consequences 
of their actions affect not just Earth, but the rest of the galaxy as well. Will they be able to fix the timeline? Or, will their actions make things worse?

This book shows different paths that American and world history could have taken. Author really held my interest all the way through. Some of the book centers around the space race. In addition the book covers space travel and colonizing the moon and beyond. When changes are made to affect the outcome of certain events, the books shows what would have happened if things were changed, and what things are fated to happen no matter what. Many important events in history are covered in this book. Everything is believable and I found myself wishing a lot of it happened like it does in the book.
Excellent story - I couldn't get enough. Stayed up 'til 3:30am to finish. I'll look for more books by Cliff Ball.

This is by far, the worst audio book I have ever heard!
The story is plodding and without direction. It reminds me of something a young teenager would submit to grade school class. The narrator only made things worse. His damp fumbling monotone would put me to sleep if I didn't find it so irritating and depressing.
The person who wrote the description should be praised for creative writing (fooled me). The person who green-lit this story to be posted should be fired.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice idea but... July 4, 2013
By PNB
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I don't mind alternative histories and this story did go into some history events. No 'grammar' problems in the book that I noticed, but the wording style and the way some things were explained just did not grab me and made it a hard read in part.

I am giving it three stars mainly for the ideas in it, and also because the Author did cover or think about things (even if they were spelt out in a fairly simple/direct way which was hard to take at times). Perhaps better for a younger audience, but then the political/history aspects would probably pass over their heads. Also if you are American (and I am not) some aspects might appeal more, but I strongly suspect that your political leanings will play a large part as to whether you like the story line and, I expect, whether you possibly reach the end of the book.

Worst narration I've ever heard. The amateurish individual constantly mispronounced names (Piotr was mangled into Pie-otor.) Pathetic. Written as though the author were a nine year old presenting an elementary school writing project. I want a refund, Audible. This book is so far below your standards that someone should be fired for putting it up here.
