    Iris Angharads, a determined, independent woman, sets herself one massive goal: to make the poison-filled atmosphere of Venus hospitable to humans. She works day and night to realize her dream, with only one person sharing her passion, Liang Chen. It seems impossible to make Venus, with its intolerable air and waterless environment, into a paradise, but Iris succeeds. And in doing so, she also creates a powerful dynasty, beginning with her first born, Benzi Liangharad.

    "Not Sci-Fi - Too Political - Unlikeable Characters"

    Have you listened to any of Andi Arndt’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Don't know


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    The main character Iris was not likable based on her decisions. I was uncomfortable with types of mature content that was brought into the story. In many places it didn’t apply to the story and only seemed to be added as part of the writers political agenda.

    Grant Archer merely wanted to study astrophysics, to work quietly as an astronomer on the far side of the Moon. But the forces of the "New Morality", the coalition of censorious do-gooders who run 21st-century America, have other plans for him. To his distress, Grant is torn from his young bride and sent to a research station in orbit around Jupiter, charged with the task of spying on the scientists who work there.

    Kevin says: "Great Stuff!"
    "Great Adult Book"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed the story and characters. However, I was disappointed by the sexual connotations and language because now my children won't get the opportunity to enjoy the story.
