    • Great opening, but it gets pretty draggy after that until we find ourselves in space again! Haha. So good start, draggy middle, great end. Overall a realistic & (at the end) rather sombre look at the space program. Some of the science in this went right over my head - and the political meanderings I just found plain boring (as in life I suppose) *chuckles*


    • A solar flare causes an accident on a routine mission around the Earth's orbit. This causes astronaut Travis Hill to take extreme measures by leaping out of the craft and into an escape pod, effectively becoming the first astronaut ever to jettison to safety from space and make a reentry back to Earth.This amazing starting sequence in the novel, Starfire by Paul Preuss, hooked me straight in and kept me turning the pages, wanting to know what would happen the thrilling moment next. Unfortunately [...]


    • I enjoyed Starfire, by Paul Preuss. It does drift into ‘hard’ sci-fi, but over all, it was an easy read, and ‘soft’ sci-fi fans won’t get bored.There were a few dated references, but that’s to be expected for a thirty-year-old novel. Another aspect that frustrated me was about three or four lengthy flashbacks that just didn’t seem to help the story. I can appreciate the author trying to fill in the back-story to a few characters, but they derailed the story. I found myself angrily [...]


    • If you are a fan of Sci-Fi you will like it, if not you will still like it. This is actually an older novel written in 1988, however it is not dated. Difficult to imagine but when this was written you did not have mobile phones, Ipads, Kindles or laptop computers. So the author has shown great skill in detailing this solar adventure in a believable way. The main character is a veteran astronaut using his fame and buliding his reputation as the premier person with knowledge of asteroids. Appearan [...]


    • I really enjoyed this book. My Sci-Fi reads often tend towards Science Fantasy, but I felt that this one was more "hard" science fiction. I was quickly pulled into the novel and followed along at a brisk pace, as though as other reviewers have mentioned, I did get lost a little in the flashbacks.
