|Plot Summary of Mars|
|"This is a fairly realistic view of how a group of scientists is gathered, trained, and sent to Mars on a science-gathering mission. Much character interaction, and much information about Mars, actual space travel, etc. Very interesting, but not a light read."
Jessica Augustsson, Resident Scholar
