When the last man on Earth reveals he has a nuclear weapon pointed at the tiny Martian colony, the colonists can only survive by working together.

But not even the knowledge that Merlin killed her mother can change the fact: They need each other for more than survival.
So I haven’t ever really been into Science Fiction before, however, I am glad I picked this audiobook to review. The book was well thought out and well written, I thought. The characters are complex and I thought the author did a great job bringing them to life. With the right mindset, the situations that are in the book are believable. It’s a book that makes you wonder what would happen if there comes an end to the human race.
I think I probably would have done better with a paper or ebook version of this book instead of the audiobook. While the audiobook was good, you couldn’t really get a full range of the narrator, I think probably because she was forced to speak
I requested a copy of this book to review. My review is my own and is 100% honest. I voluntarily left this review on Finding Life on Mars.
Jason Dias is a neurodivergent existential psychologist and author. He lives, loves and works in Colorado Springs, Colorado and keeps largely to himself.
Jennifer Jill Araya has been listening to audiobooks since she was a young child, and the fact that she now gets to narrate audiobooks for a living is a dream come true. Jennifer’s training as an opera singer and orchestral cellist lend a musicality and depth of understanding to her narration that help bring her authors’ stories to life. She loves nothing more than giving life and breath to the printed word. When she’s not narrating, Jennifer can be found hiking, biking, running, or generally exploring her home city of Cincinnati with her husband Arturo (aka “Partner in Crime”) and their two children.
