    Young Carmen Dula and her family are about to embark on the adventure of a lifetime - they're going to Mars. Once on the Red Planet, however, Carmen realizes things are not so different from Earth. There are chores to do, lessons to learn, and oppressive authority figures to rebel against.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    It needed to be faster paced with real conflict. Everybody were too accomodating of each other. There was very little suspense. Most of the dialog was on the level of gossip. This just wasn't in the same class as the


    Would you ever listen to anything by Joe Haldeman again?

    Forever War is one of the best Sci Fi books out there.

    This stand-alone work is widely regarded as Asimov's best science fiction novel. Andrew Harlan is an Eternal, a member of the elite of the future. One of the few who live in Eternity, a location outside of place and time, Harlan's job is to create carefully controlled and enacted Reality Changes. These Changes are small, exactingly calculated shifts in the course of history, made for the benefit of humankind. Though each Change has been made for the greater good, there are also always costs....
