On the year 2041, the government of the Earth starts the colonization of Mars. In the space-ship Adventure travels journalist Irene Pinedo, who will transmit to the Earth the incidents of the trip. After arriving on Mars, Irene makes two sensational discoveries that make her confront the leaders of the colony and the Earth government in a conflict of interests.

Manuel has graciously provided questions for our discussion and has offered to respond to any questions we may have.

Enjoy.

Did any of you have problems with the digital copies of the book in the addresses I provided? I have just noticed that in my own copies the last chapter is almost empty. This applies to both the epub and the mobi version. Have any of you seen this?

I got the paperback from Amazon and didn't have that problem. :-)

In case someone downloaded the digital book, do it again. The new files in the same addresses are OK (I hope) (:-)


Tania (tmartnez) | 105 comments Manuel, you're completely right!
The digital format ends at page 265 with The Treaty and the stipulation one... I though It was an odd way to finish a book.

I don't remember where you shared the links, I'm looking for them with no luck. Could you post it once again please ?
Thank you.

Tania (tmartnez) | 105 comments Manuel, the missing part was very esencial in the development of the story.. no wonder i didn't understand so many aspect of the book and the questions. I appreciate very much you had the time to look for the copies and notice they were not complete.

Thank you very much.

In fact I was looking for a quotation in the book, which I needed, and knew it must be in the last chapter, so I opened my own digital copy of the book to look for it and couldn't find it! Then I downloaded the copies in my web page and saw that they were just the same. (:-(

With such an ending, I don't wonder you gave the book just three stars. Or rather I wonder you gave it as many as three (:-)
