    I look to be entertained by fiction not to be recruited I had no idea this was a Christian propaganda novel but will now be steering clear of Shane Johnson books

    Unbelievably excessive Christian religiosity heavy on interpersonal chit chat and disgustingly weak on the technical troubleshootingWasted sci fi plot potential drowned in religion

    What if NASA hadn’t canceled the last two Apollo missions? Here’s a story of what might have happened if Apollo 19 had flown Astronauts Gary Lucas and Charlie Shepherd can’t start their lunar module engine to leave the moon With their remaining air they embark on a long voyage to the lunar pole and make a stunning discovery This story is choc

    I really liked it I found myself concerned about how Lucas's storyline was going to be explained but I appreciate the resolution to that and to the overall book

    So I picked this up somewhat randomly off the fiction shelves at the Seattle Public Library a few years back What a weird book It's like creationistfundamentalist Christian science fiction meets alternate history If you want to know what the people of the Good Book are reading for their science fiction this is probably a good example I dunno Spoiler

    Although Ice gets off to a slow start it develops into a gripping story It presents an alternative history for the final Apollo moon flights Apollo 19 lands on the southern pole of the moon to investigate a dark depression which never sees the sun The astronauts are hoping to collect evidence of the moon's origin but they find than they ever bargaine

    I wanted to like it It did have a very interesting premise Astronauts are stranded on the moon and discover an ancient seemingly abandoned alien base It should have been a very interesting story I wanted mystery and technology and maybe even an introduction to a new species But it was really all about converting people to Christianity

    35Weirdly enough I kinda liked this book I've read it twice and the weird time travel bit with bible connections was rather interesting in a 'Ha ha what? Is this really happening?' way However there was no way this book was going to 'bring me to the light' if that was the author's intent If you take it at face value it's a strange read but in a good way

  9. says:

    This is an amateurish collection of painful cliches It is a form of intellectual torture to try to read this book As a member of a genre not known for brilliant writing this book has reached a new low
