Voyage to the Red Planet - Terry Bisson I liked this book a lot. It was an easy quick read, but this story of the first voyage to Mars is handled with humor, scientific detail and a cast of likable characters.

From Bass and his old-school skills to the tough-as-nails Kirov and her soviet training, to the stowaway Greetings Brother Buffalo to the movie stars, "bones", and the director, the crew of the Mary Poppins was enjoyable to ride along with.

I enjoyed that there was no need for an evil intruder, or an alien monster, but rather that the action and adventure was just simple fun.
