Audiobook review of Ben Bova's 1999 novel Return to Mars

Earlier this year, Steven Brandt the impressive blog AudioBook Heaven reviewed the unabridged 2008 Blackstone Audio audiobook of Return to Mars (1999), the second novel in a hard science fiction Red Planet trilogy written by six-time Hugo Award-winning author Ben Bova. Featuring a half-Navajo, half-Anglo geologist named Jamie Waterman, Return to Mars is read by well-known and respected voice actor Stefan Rudnicki and clocks in at about 16 hours.

The final word of the review: “Return to Mars wasn’t quite what I expected, but I still enjoyed Ben Bova’s writing. His style is very down-to-earth, if you’ll pardon the pun. Bova is perfect for fans of soft-core science-fiction.”
