Review of 'Colony'

Colony by Ben Bova

David Adams is a genetically manipulated human born on Space Station Island One but he is determined to visit earth – hopefully to save it from itself. But, he is the legal property of the people that made him and they definitely do not want him to leave. Amongst this plot the political story plays itself out with the Corporations fighting the World Government (which replaced the UN when it was disbanded). Interesting but not entirely convincing characters make this a good light read with just the right amount of action thrown in. Not one of his best works…

Rating: “A bit better than average”

Genre: Science Fiction
