Reading a trilogy by an author named Joe Haldeman: https://www.amazon.com/Joe-Haldeman/e/B00AQ9AMFS (Amazon).
There are a few trilogies in his work, the one I’m reading is the Mars Bound trilogy.
I started to read this book, and male pig that I am rejected it as it was about a young girl who decides to accompany her parents to Mars instead of starting college on Earth; and I did not believe it would appeal to me. By that time I was more than a chapter into it and wondering what would happen to Carmen (The young woman) next.
The book was awesome. I don’t read books much because I don’t want to be influenced in what I write, but since I am taking a break from writing I thought ‘what the hell’.
I have tracked down the other two books in the series and will read them along with a few others. Glad I fought my first opinion that a story about a young girl headed for Mars would not interest me. The story and the science was good and I enjoyed it, Dell.
