Publisher's Summary

When erudite ape Professor Khan and rough-and-tumble cowboy Bulls-Eye Gutierrez are zapped away on a one-way trip to Mars, they are thrown into a world in chaos. Under the malevolent gaze of the Weather Witch, Princess Cyclone, our heroes face the intrigue and war raging across an alien world. Will they survive long enough for the other Centurions to build a way back home? Or will they perish upon the shifting sands of the Red Planet, never to be seen again?

Hold on for a fun ride from start to finish

I enjoyed this book - put simply - it was really fun to listen to. I was not familiar with the Spirit of the Century game & other books prior to starting this one but had no problem following along. Khan & Bulls-eye are wonderful characters and they're dropped into a fast paced adventure on Mars. The planet was full of surprises and I loved the diversity of the Mars population. (How can one not like the idea of frogmen from Mars?)

Oliver Wyman does a wonderful job bringing the story to life with his performance.

Will I be reading more in the Spirit of the Century series books? Yes.

A Great Gem

Where does Khan of Mars rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This will be on the "frequently listened to" list, up there with Ready Player One, the Agatha H's and Fuzzy Nation as something to enjoy when I need a familiar tale.

Have you listened to any of Oliver Wyman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Oliver Wyman does a great job reading this. I love that he also did the Dinocalypse series because he keeps a great continuity in the universe. I'd happily seek out other books he's read

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I practically did, between the audio and the ebook.

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed this book and can't wait to dive into the other Spirit of the Century books. There will be another Khan book, a Sally Slick novel, and an Amelia Stone, at least. I can't remember if there will be more but you can bet they will all find their way into my library, esp if Oliver Wyman continues to read them
