Boring, boring, boring. A group of five students are sent to explore Enigma 88 as their final assignment. They are to figure out why such a small rocky object has an unnaturally thick atmosphere. In the course of their discoveries, they uncover far more than they or their instructors ever dreamed.

And it's all terribly boring. The five students act like stupid, immature students. They do dumb stuff and nearly get themselves killed multiple times, and don't even seem to notice. I can't find any reason to recommend this book.
