Last Day on Mars (Chronicle of the Dark Star) Reviews
I adored this book and read it in a day, then gave it to my husband to read. Now our 9 year old daughter is reading it and we all agree it's wonderful! Emerson writes well of the teenage main characters who have grown up on Mars as to how they have adapted where their earthling parents cannot. Compelling plot, thoughtful descriptions, characters you care about - it's all there in this great book. To say I can't wait for the next book is a serious understatement!
My 9 yo son and I can't wait for the next installment in the series. Take three parts of The Martian, add one part Star Wars, plus a dash of Ender’s Game, and you’ve got The Last Day on Mars. This is kids-oriented science fiction at its best combining a propulsive plot with humor and lots of twists and turns. The Sun is dying. Mankind has fled Earth for a temporary home on Mars. Now its time for the fleet to leave for a new solar system. Forces are working against them though. As the clock ticks down for departure, it might be up to Liam, Phoebe, and Liam’s robot JEFF to save the fleet.
I really like how this book was set in the future, because when I read it, I always wonder if this would really happen. I enjoyed reading that there were lots of challenges the characters faced and how they would always overcome them and got a great reward.
A gripping and creative page turner! I loved this book, my wife did too, and now our 9 year old is reading it. Fascinating premise, compelling characters, many twists and turns, and a surprise at the end that left me wishing the next book were already out. Very highly recommended!
I got this book based on a recommendation and boy am I glad that I did. Read it and enjoy.
This is a page turner. Can't wait to see what is in store for the human race next. It's also a good read for teenagers.
My son can't wait for the next book!
