"Solid action and wonder with credible alien life forms and inspired technology....Jupiter is a new favorite destination for sci-fi exploration, and Bova's take on the planet is unique and enticing." (Publishers Weekly)
"Noble and Warren's pace helps create a roller coaster of suspense and clear distinction amongst varying dialects....Easy-to-follow and entertaining deliveries." (AudioFile)
I felt like I was listening to a bad radio show. tell this guy to shut up! Horrible intro from a "friend" who's musings could be considered racist by some.
Knowledge more powerful than ignorance...a novel of exploration and discovery. Author writes about human expansion in the 21st century -- to the solar system. Pivotal character pulled between science and religion, which makes a thought-provoking read. Is this Sci-fi or prophesy? Where is the next book?

Bova is so very good you will want to read and listen and read and listen...
The author provided a setting that was clear and believable. His characters were consistent and and had depth. His story was captivating and exciting. I really enjoyed this audible book
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.
I did not know what to expect but I really enjoyed this story. The characterization and storyline kept me wanting to listen to more. I especially liked the mixture of the science with the fictional story.
Interesting premise, but the plot and dialog were so simple that if it weren't for all the sexual allusions, I would have thought that the book was written for middle school kids. The plot seemed to follow a very cookie-cutter-style flow, and the conclusion wrapped up as happy-ever-after as a Brady Bunch episode. Too sexual for kids, too uninteresting for adults.
I gave up on this more quickly than any audiobook I've ever had. Poor writing, clumsy dialogue ... just awful. I will listen to a lot of dreck for longer than I should in the hopes that an author gets his feet under him, but it was so obvious here that that was not going to happen.
