Venus of Dreams: The Venus Trilogy, Book 1

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.

    "Great Book, Great Trilogy"
    Where does Venus of Dreams rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

    up there with the best. Ms. Sargent has obviously done very thorough research and keeps you on edge with this tale of a young woman seeking her dream


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Iris. Ms. Sargent does an excellent job of taking you through her range of emotions. Her tenacity and willingness to suffer through the harrassment of her effort to fulfill her goals.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    they were all good and none really stuck out to me.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    the struggle of a woman to reach her goals.


    Any additional comments?

    this really is a must read for any fans of science fiction.

    Story
    "Not Sci-Fi - Too Political - Unlikeable Characters"
    Would you try another book from Pamela Sargent and/or Andi Arndt?

    Andi Arndt - Yes


    Would you ever listen to anything by Pamela Sargent again?

    No


    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.
