From the Nebula Award-winning author of Timescape and Foundation's Fear comes a hard-science thriller about the race to Mars.
When an explosion of the rocket launching the Mars Transit Vehicle kills four crewmen, the US decides to redirect its energies to near-Earth projects, killing the manned mission to Mars. But tycoon John Axelrod assembles a consortium to fund the project, and he expects to net billions. But a European-Asian airbus will make a similar expedition. Now, the race is on to get to the Red Planet first.

Pack your woolies when you go on this voyage.
Did not read print version, but this is a wonderful audio book notwithstanding.
Many of the Ben Bova Mars series, and, ( of course ) The Martian. The depictions of our nearest planetary neighbour are ( so far as I can tell ) accurate, stark and the drama of Martian life is compelling and emotionally attractive.
Once again, one of the bevy of up and coming female performers that Audible have attracted that take what what otherwise might be considered male territory and making it their own. Her depiction of many of the intimate relationships in this story would likely not be nearly as well portrayed by a male. Compelling.
Mars Attacks ( for real? )
This offering is an excellent companion to the entire spectrum of audio offerings based on life on Mars. Well written and performed. Highly recommended.
