The Sam Gunn Omnibus by Ben Bova

Sam Gunn, the most notorious bussiness man, womanizer, adventurer, and friend in the universe, has been lost in a black hole. Jane, the young reporter, is going after the story of his amazing life. She feels this strong connection to him, that propels her onward through all her hardships and obstacles, to get the full story. As the story of his life unravels, Jade comes to admire this man, and all the greatness that he has done and not been given credit for. On and on she interviews, and closer and closer to Sam she gets. But how is this possible when Sam is thousands of miles away, sucked into a black hole?

This was a very good and entertaining book. At the begining however, it was a little slow to start. Once it started speeding up I couldn't stop reading. The book was exciting and very suspenseful. I would try to guess what would happen next, and what would happen in the end. When it was finished, i truly appreciated the book and realized how great of an intricate plot it was. The detail was perfect so that I could clearly paint a picture and see exactly what happened in my head. The book was definetly too mature for kids younger then 13. There was lots of inappropriate references. Overall, if your looking for a book that really gets your mind going, this is a great choice.

Content: Bad language, sexual terms, and multiple other more mature topics.
