Iris Angharads, a determined, independent woman, sets herself one massive goal: to make the poison-filled atmosphere of Venus hospitable to humans. She works day and night to realize her dream, with only one person sharing her passion, Liang Chen. It seems impossible to make Venus, with its intolerable air and waterless environment, into a paradise, but Iris succeeds. And in doing so, she also creates a powerful dynasty, beginning with her first born, Benzi Liangharad.

Not Sci-Fi - Too Political - Unlikeable Characters
Would you try another book from Pamela Sargent and/or Andi Arndt?
Andi Arndt - Yes
Would you ever listen to anything by Pamela Sargent again?
Have you listened to any of Andi Arndt’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
The main character Iris was not likable based on her decisions. I was uncomfortable with types of mature content that was brought into the story. In many places it didn’t apply to the story and only seemed to be added as part of the writers political agenda.
