Loved the book. So much of what he wrote about is right on target here, where I live. Religion rules the lives of many of these people here, most of which are very uneducated, poor, and having as many as 16 children. The story line keeped me interested through out. Wish I had started with the first in the series.
I listened to all four of this series because I love science fiction, but this the forth in the series, Bova is on his own soap box/religion especially regarding population control. It's his his book/story so he can do whatever he wants to, but for me it was bit Over killed and soured the book.
Jupiter, by Ben Bova.
When he beams aboard the Star Ship.
The Earth faces disaster and only one man can save them.
Just a great Story, in the tradition of the "Grand Tour" series.
I listen nearly to the end of the first part, then skipped ahead a couple times and at the end could not finish it. There was not enough science fiction in the story to keep me interested to listen to environmental lectures.
It appears to me that many good authors which are entertaining get to a stage were they feel they have to educate the population about current world problems. Please stick to entertainment that is why we buy fiction.
