Galahad 2: The Web Of Titan

Summary:

The journey of the space ship Galahad continues. It has been four months, and the crew of 250 teenagers continues to head to planet Eos, where they expect to start a new life. Just as everyone was comfortable with the daily routines that space travel requires, some crew members became strangely ill. Titus, one of Saturn's moons, attacked Galahad with a strange and powerful energy beam. Will the leadership team (and the super computer) find a solution for their dilemma? Time is of the essence.

Young Reader Reaction

This is a thought-provoking science fiction story. With tales of adventure, mystery, and romance, it is well suited for middle school students. It has a captivating plot, but starts off slow. In some parts of the story, it drags on with unnecessary details. There were points where I just had to continue reading, or I would lose my sense of the situation in the plot. The story has several themes, which combined with the suspense and mystery, add to the reader's enjoyment. I was never one to choose a book about science fiction or deep space, but the lifelike qualities of the teenagers helped me relate to all the complex situations. While this story is not one I would normally pick first to read, having read it, I would Iwould definitely borrow to re-read from the library on a quiet afternoon.
