I'm definitely liking Ben Bova stuff. 2/2 so far. This one was a little bit different, but still a good solid sci-fi without too much anti-religion in it.
So... I realized that even though I don't always write an actual review, I should at least write a tiny bit about what the book was about to jog my memory. So... this was about a ship of mostly students and scientists that were meant to prepare a world for colonization because Earth was too over-populated. Using implanted probes, they were able to control animals on the ground to aid in the terraforming operation. At least, until one student decides that the animals they're controlling are actually intelligent and should not be exterminated.
