Publisher's Summary

In this continuation of the story line of The Red Planet Trilogy, author William Graham weaves a compelling tale of political intrigue as Dr. Jane Starling, the first president of the newly formed Martian Republic, takes office. Her political foes at the corporations, which founded the colonies on Mars, are aligned against her and devise ways to sabotage her political agenda. Against this highly charged political drama, the common citizens of Mars must make decisions about their own lives.
This fast-paced drama not only takes us into the future but casts a bright light on many contemporary events. It's a story with universal appeal and meaning.

Continuation of the Trilogy

Would you recommend The Red Planet President to your friends? Why or why not?

I have a mars junky friend who likes to read anything and everything related to mars. I would recommend this to him.


Any additional comments?

I was voluntarily provided a free copy of this book by the author / narrator / publisher and I'm leaving an unbiased review.

I had read "The Red Planet Trilogy" from the same author earlier. I had found that book to be more of a political dram than a sci-fi book. Compared to that one, this novella is definitely better. But since this one has just one short length story, I was left wanting more. Imo, the story could've been fleshed out more. But, if you are looking for a quick read, this book will meet your needs.

An examination of human nature

I find William Graham’s books fascinating. Each one has a different setting but they all make a point about greed, power corrupting and the need for people to stand up for what’s right.

This book is based on Mars about 100 years in the future when the first government is created and follows the power struggle between that government and the rich families who want to control the future of the planet. It’s a fascinating story that delves into a range of different human experiences seen through the eyes and actions of different characters.

I’m not someone who likes to talk politics but this book still enthralled me.

The narration is well done for the most part, occasionally a character voice struck me as a bit strange but this was always a supporting character who didn’t have much dialogue. The overall delivery including the pacing and phrasing were excellent.

This book was supplied free by the author/narrator/publisher and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.
