Book Review of Powersat

reviewed on + 803 more book reviews

I really enjoyed this novel of the near future. It combines elements of sci-fi with the threats of terrorism that are really relevant today. This is actually the first chronologically in the "Grand Tour" series according to Bova's website and it provides a good start to his future world involving space exploration. I liked the characters in the book, even though I thought Dan Randolph was a little self-centered and I wasn't happy to see one of the main character's demise toward the end of the book but I would still recommend this one. I also found the concept of the PowerSat interesting - could this actually be feasible? I had only previously read "Venus" in this series which I also enjoyed, but now I would like to read the entire series.
