Mars "the bloody planet," is a world shrouded in mystery. As the source of endless fascination, Mars offers us the most promise for finding evidence of life. Half Navajo American Jamie Waterman is a geologist whose dream comes true when he is selected for the first landing team on Mars. He endures the rigors of training, the personality conflicts and political intrigues, as well as the dangers of travelling over 100 million kilometers in space. Once the international crew lands on Mars, they discover they must battle not only the alien land they have invaded but earthbound bureaucrats as well. As they head toward a chasm that is ten times larger than the Grand Canyon, the twenty-five astronauts come face-to-face with the most shocking discovery of all.… (més)

Story of an international exploration of Mars. Interesting, and holds up pretty well. When you've got a large multinational cast, there's the danger of veering into stereotypes, but it avoids pretty well. ( )

Lukewarm near-future tale of a Mars expedition. The science in this book was great but the human interaction portion really fell apart. Those parts felt like it was written by a Junior High School student, just not very realistic or believable. Also, I understand it was a multi-racial, multi-gender crew, but the author felt like he had to make that point painfully clear all the time...... If I hear the expression "red man" one more time..... Conversely, the scientific portions of the book were well handled, very believable and were certainly the best part. Overall I'm glad I read it, I just wish it was better..... ( )

This is my first Ben Bova book. It's a good mix of hard science and fiction. I Really enjoyed it. It gives a good feel for a trip to a real planet and the innovations required to make it happen. I'm looking forward to more books by this writer. ( )

Jamie Waterman is a half Navaho geologist who wants to be among the final selection for an expedition to Mars. There are two other geologists in front of him, but somehow he makes the final team. Then his dream journey begins. Along the way, he upsets some of his team, the expedition leader, and the politicians back on Earth. But then a series of discoveries are made that cements his position.

I feel that there are some common themes and major differences with Kim Stanley Robinson’s Red Mars, which was first published shortly after Ben Bova’s book. I suspect that Andy Weir may also have borrowed some ideas for his book, The Martian.

Unfortunately, the technology portrayed is dated for a story supposedly set around 2020, especially with the mention of floppy disks and tape recorders. Surely a noted science fiction writer should have seen the demise of such devices. However, in my opinion, there is enough drama here to make it a good read despite its shortcomings. I gave it 4 stars out of 5. ( )
