Review: Venus

Venus by Ben Bova
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

An excellent hard science fiction novel by Mr. Bova, who is always good for a great ride. This was a very well-written book with an intriguing storyline that both evinced classic 50’s man-into-space books and very modern problems (climate change), along with a bit of Commodore Grimes. I’ve read quite a few of Bova’s Grand Tour books over the years, and this compares to any of them; there’s a lot of back story but you don’t need to know every bit of it to enjoy what’s going on – like most of them, it’s very self-contained. Recommended!
