The book I read and had in my timeline was “Jupier”. But after reading that and the next one “The Rock Rats”, I think that it should have been read after the rock rats. But I did read it in this order, so here we go.
This is the first book where the plot is around Jupiter, and the sequal is “Levithans of Jupiter”. Continue reading
After the return to mars, it is time for the first book in the “asteroid wars” part of the grand tour series.
According to the timeline it happens after the second mars book.
I have now finished the next book in the “grand tour” series – This time its the Return to Mars book.
Its a direct sequal to the Mars book.
The next book in the “grand tour” series is now done – This time its the Moonwar book.
Its a direct sequal to the Moonrise book.
Another book in the “grand tour” series is now done – And it was the Moonrise book.
This book in the series is the first book about the expanding solar system and the humans expansion.
The next book in the Gnad tour series of Ben bova is the very good book called “Mars”
This is a book about half-Navajo geologist Jamie Waterman that has been selected for the ground team of the first manned expedition to Mars.
After finishing the Poswersat book, the next one on the schedule was “Empire Builders”.
This is the second book about Dan Randolph even if it was writte well before Powersat.
The earth is heading towards a greenhouse cliff, a sudden climate change that will destroy much of the planet in ten years if something isn’t done soon. The ice caps will melt. Cities will be flooded. Millions will die. When Randolph tries to let people know what’s going on and try to help orchestrate a plan to avoid this catastrophe, government officials from the Global Economic Council (the GEC) confiscate his company, imprison him, and silence his scientific team.
The story continues and as usual it quite good and i find the book hard to put down, or stop listen to if you, like me listen to the audio book.
Stefan Rudnicki does an very excellent job adjusting his voice to each of the characters so you get a god idea of who speach. Speech tags become redundant. He captures a variety of accents well, and the voices match the personalities. He tries hard to get the Japanese right, but it doesn’t roll off his tongue well.
Its even a bit scary to think that this book was written back in 1993 and quite well talks about some of the problems we have been facing today. The tsunamis in Indonesia and the flooding of New Orleans.
