04:24 pm: Jupiter by Ben Bova
I would have liked this more if there had been more science and less religion. One of his major themes was that although there are those nasty atheists and those awful Christian fanatics, there are nice Christians in the middle. I know individuals who have been careful to point this out lately, but not in quite as sustained a stream.

There are some interesting bits of bioscience in here, plus the required love and heartbreak. Some of the writing was odd -- twice he uses three-word phrases to explain something except that two of the words mean the same thing which makes him look rather stupid in the medical area (e.g., heart rate, blood pressure, pulse).

If you're fond of reading about the happy middle winning over the horrible ends and don't mind reading about religion, you'll like this book.
