My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Great Story! Well Researched, Hard Core Science Fiction
This is a great novella with a lot of research behind it. I especially liked Pestel’s descriptions of the technical details of space flight and what it would feel like to walk on Mars. She even nailed the slightly different sentence structure Russians use when speaking English. I’m going on about the research Pestel put into this work because that is exactly what I’m looking for in science fiction.
It’s a great story with a highly satisfying ending. I will definitely be reading more of Pestel’s work!
