Reviews of Orion (1985)
Review by madreinman (2005-08-24)
This is the first full length novel I've read from Ben Bova. A brilliant protagonist in Orion who has assigned one task, and one task alone. To save the human race. With near perfect historical backgrounds and settings Bova provided an alternate world. Not just any other alternate world with aliens and human beings but with a worldy theme. Action packed with battles and personal struggles Orion hits sci-fans in the back with a thrililng blows and a twisting ending to add to the mixture. I'm ready now to tackle other books by Bova and this one is a real pageturner.
