Mars Life - Ben Bova

Great addition to Bova's Grand Tour novels, specifically the Mars book. I really like how Bova was able to weave the excitement of colonizing and exploring Mars with the real world concerns back on Earth of just how economically feasible it would be to do so. The main protagonist (Jamie Waterman) really stands out as a solid character to drive many of the plot points, both pro and con Mars exploration, while everything else just kind of plays off of that. If you in any way like the subject of astronomy, specifically solar system exploration, I highly recommend picking up Bova's Grand Tour novels. Great escapism, which we all could use a little of these days.
