    2057. Humanity has raised exploiting the solar system to an art form. Bella Lind and the crew of her nuclear-powered ship, the Rockhopper, push ice. They mine comets. And they're good at it. The Rockhopper is nearing the end of its current mission cycle, and everyone is desperate for some much-needed R & R, when startling news arrives from Saturn: Janus, one of Saturn's ice moons, has inexplicably left its natural orbit and is now heading out of the solar system at high speed.

    Story

    After reading the excellent Asimov and other SciFi, I wanted a decent SciFi book that brought concepts that were really futuristic and this is it. On top of all, the story plot is very good. Really enjoyed it.

    This is a tale of sorrow, a tale of survival, a tale of one man's search for meaning in his universe, and how that search, and the indomitable will that drove it, gave birth to a legend.

    I don't usually care much for this type of books, but Day 1 got me hooked up. Can't wait to get the other "days"

The producers have accused him of cheating his way to victory. Twelve extraordinary events in street-kid Ram's life - how he was adopted as a foundling orphan by a priest; came to have three names; fooled a professional hit man; even fell in love - give him the crucial answers.

    Story

    The movie was clearly adapted to foreign audiences while the book is clearly Indian. The concept remains the same, but the story and questions are different, so it makes for a very nice variation from what most of the us saw on screen.

    The performance is very good, so is the story.

    I had started reading the book several times and never got past the firts few chapters. It is a piece loaded with historical facts and the lovely and melodious voice of Nicola Barber makes it very easy to digest, follow, understand and most of all, enjoy.
