Yes, Definitely! Beautifully relatable; inviting the reader deep within her details. A deliciously short Sci Fi. Main character development poignant and what would any life be without a pet?
What other book might you compare Will There Be Watermelons on Mars? to and why?
I am the newest fan to this genre! All other selections will have to meet her high standards to earn my loyalty.
Have you listened to any of Jennifer Bossio’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
This is my first audio book. Where have I been? Ms. Bossio's ability to earn a listener's devotion is a no brainer.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Yes, confirmation of my own spiritual journey. It could have been me she was describing in the internal discussion of the Atheist/Christian/Muslim debates.
Any additional comments?
I am thrilled to have won this amazing audio book in a contest, sponsored by BraintoBooks Cybercon, 2017. I congratulate Ms. Mamber Kupfer on her masterpiece-Laura Kester Duerrwaechter, Mary Esther, FL, USA.
What did you love best about Will There Be Watermelons on Mars??
I thought it was told in an interesting manner through a series of vignettes. I don't usually listen to or read science fiction books. But, I found I really enjoyed this one. It was a quick listen and I found that I was invested in each section of the story. Though it's short, there was still plenty of character development. If, like me, you do not usually find yourself reading books like this, give it a try anyway.
Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
Time well-spent? Not really but then again, I have developed my reading to be more sexy and romantic. This was definitely directed towards young adults.
Would you recommend Will There Be Watermelons on Mars? to your friends? Why or why not?

I enjoyed this short very much and on many levels. A good sci fi tale.
