Top Customer Reviews

In a world full of 'Life on Mars' or 'Journey to Mars' books, it's nice to discover a fresh new novel that forges an entirely different approach on these subjects. The author bills his book as merely 'summer reading', but I think it goes a bit beyond that. The story provides plenty of food for thought as one by one its characters attach themselves to a doomed space expedition for their own separate reasons - including a few superficial ones that some critics can't seem to abide. And the behind-the-scenes angle taken, instead of the usual follow-the-square-jawed-hero, is a nice touch.
But just as important, the way the book is written (in a crisp fashion using an admirable economy of words) makes the whole thing worthwhile. Very well done for a first time novelist (or even an accomplished writer).

Expedition deals with the extent people will go to fulfill their ambitions. The setting is NASA and the plot revolves around a rather eyebrow-raising space expedition that turns out to be based on dodgy information and misplaced ideals, yet still manages to inspire those caught up in it (a subject that isn't too far removed from a lot of what's going on in Iraq).
All in all, Expedition is just as good (or bad, depending on how much you like these things) as any respectable modern day thriller, but its unique angle makes it all the more interesting.

The premise in this debut novel is very interesting - how far will top scientists go to realise their dream of space travel to Mars. We all have ambitions and this book explores what happens if something gets in the way.
So far so good, but the character development needs more work and the ethical quandaries raised are not sufficiently developed.

With so many works of fiction these days it's difficult, if not impossible, to get past the first sixty pages. 'Expedition' is different. After you reach the sixtieth page (and you will), put it down and walk away. Go on. I dare you.

HASH(0x8a9f3990) out of 5 stars Ah, if only all thrillers were this intriguing! 4 Oct. 2004
By Benjamin - Published on Amazon.com
A decent read. A good story line. An interesting plot. Above average writing. Good escapism. And an ethnic protagonist that doesn't succumb to the usual stereotypes.

Ah, if only all thrillers were this intelligent and intriguing.

With most works of fiction, it's difficult, if not impossible, to get through the first sixty pages. That's not the case with 'Expedition'. After you reach page sixty (and you will), put it down and walk away. Go on. I dare you!
