Audiobook review of Ben Bova’s 1992 novel Mars
AudioBook Heaven reviewed the unabridged 2008 Blackstone Audio audiobook of Mars (1992), the first novel in a hard science fiction Red Planet trilogy written by six-time Hugo Award-winning author Ben Bova. Featuring a geologist named Jamie Waterman, Mars is read by respected voice actor Stefan Rudnicki and clocks in at nearly 19 hours.
The final word of the review: “I first read Mars more than fifteen years ago and it has remained one of my very favorite science fiction novels. There’s something about the planet Mars that captivates me. In the years hence, Ben Bova has become my favorite science fiction author, largely due to his Grand Tour series.”
You can listen to a sample of Mars through Blackstone’s website.
