3.9


Keith Stoner lay frozen in an alien spacecraft for 15 long years. During that time, he came to be something more than just an astronaut, or just a man. Stoner became partly alien himself, merged with an alien intelligence embodied in the nanotechnology that lived inside his body.The alien whose tomb that spacecraft was brought humanity both a blessing and a deadly peril. The technology that lives in Stoner's bloodstream will change mankind forever. Powerful leaders, both corporate and political, become aware of Keith Stoner and the power he seems to control. They want that power for themselves and will do anything to gain it. Nothing Stoner can say or do will convince these ruthless men and women that the power they seek may destroy them utterly. Hi-fi sci-fi: listen to the first book in this series, Voyagers, and the second book, Voyagers II: The Alien Within. ©1990 Ben Bova; (P)2007 Blackstone Audio Inc.

"A most enjoyable listen"

As is Voyager I & II, Voyagers III is a most enjoyable listen. The whole series flows together well and Ben Bova has left an opening for the next star journey. The story is riveting and kept me company whenever I shovelled snow, did some gardening or just chilled out in the Jacuzzi. I am looking forward to Voyagers IV, whenever it comes out. There is always more snow coming and gardening to do, and relaxing baths to take.

"loved it"

Very entertaining. It does give you a perspective on humanity 's desire to have power and control and what we could do with it if it were focused to do good.

"A bad book by a good writer"

If Ben Bova wasn't a competent writer, I would say that this novel was a waste of my time. His storytelling saved it from being on my all time worst list. Ayn Rand already wrote Atlas Shrugged and The Fountainhead. Add in some George Orwell and Larry Niven with a touch of "Heart of Darkness" and you get this rehash of stale Science Fiction ideas. Even though I disliked this novel, I did care about the characters, and I had to finish it to see how it turned out. Voyagers II and III would have been better short stories. Confusing "Ghetto" with "Slum" is unforgivable, and the constant references to a person's race as a description is, in my opinion, just plain careless. I am not calling Mr. Bova a Racist, just pointing out something I really disliked. I can ignore that sort of labeling in a book from 1850 or 1920 but not from the late 20th century. If you have not read Voyagers I and want to know what happens to the characters, don't bother with II or III. The narration was well done.
