Customer Reviews, including Product Star Ratings help customers to learn more about the product and decide whether it is the right product for them.
To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzed reviews to verify trustworthiness.
An entertaining and page turning novel not too unlike 1969’s MAROONED or APOLLO 13. Something goes wrong and a rescue mission is organized. Nicely developed characters that I hope to meet again in a follow-up story.
How could you not like a book that starts in a Texas honky-tonk playing pool. (And yes, I'm Texas-born and own a pickup truck!) Having a love for astronomy and space exploration has been in my bones since I was a kid. Living close by, I have visited NASA many times over the years, thanks to astronaut friends and a cousin who worked there. With a degree in Physics from UT along with my knowledge of astronomy, I am somewhat skeptical of sci-fi books. But this book is a wonderful surprise. As you might expect, this book is well written. And the entire story is highly plausible. Attention to detail including descriptions of characters, settings, and actions allow for a vivid imagination of all aspects of the story. Everyone knows that a trip to Mars will be fraught with potential problems. This book exposes these many issues vividly. You don't have to be a sci-fi nut to enjoy this book. If you like space exploration or astronomy, you will love this book.
I really enjoyed this book by Daniel Logan. From the first page, it pulls you in and doesn't let go until the last...and maybe not even then. Logan develops the characters well, so their struggles resonate with the reader as do their successes. The author's depth of knowledge about NASA and space is impressive and adds to the authenticity of the story--I found myself thinking "this could happen!" Do yourself a favor and grab a copy of this book. You won't be sorry.

Not only is this book well written with an excellent plot, but it also gets a bonus point for involving Mars. It has lots of suspense, a little science, and told a great story. The concept of robot sex is perhaps a little out there, but at the same time it was reminiscent of both "Data" and "Tripping The Rift" which was really fun to watch. Thanks for a really good read; I will be hopefully watching for more.

The book arrived promptly and I added it to near the top of my ‘to read’ stack. Then I got curious so I took a quick glance, then read the first few pages, then headed to my favorite reading chair and finished the book. That was quite an exciting ride, from a west Texas bar to the moons of Mars! Very interesting people, some very advanced artificial intelligence and a fascinating story to wind them all together! Well done!
