    Buy this book!

    Buy this book! Detail oriented. Educated. Plausible story line. With our current exploration of Mars (in it's infancy) the possibilities in this book could be our future. It is a must read.

    I Also Recommend:

    Addictive

    I very much enjoyed Green Mars. I had trouble getting into the previous Red Mars, but once I was hooked into the characters and the culture - I was really hooked. I went on to read Green Mars and Blue Mars and had trouble putting them down.

    This book is realistic science fiction. The culture and people evolve in realistic ways over the time in which the book takes place. I especially liked the fact that every character was at times unlikeable. There was plenty of human frailty and heroism, political intrigue and even war.

    If you enjoy realistic sci-fi that concentrates on rich characters, I recommend this book and the trilogy.

    Epic Sci-Fi

    This trilogy has the width and breadth of Lord of the Rings on Mars. The description of Mars is grand. The imagination and research contained in these books are truly impressive. The story overall is epic.

    My only issue with it is that the style may be a bit heavy and the action a bit slow with sudden bursts of activity, which are very quickly described. Kim Stanley Robinson seems to like spending time describing landscapes and settings rather than action itself. The characters are somewhat complex but too many of them to fully develop them, except for the character of Hiroko, Maya, and Sax.

    Finally, despite the slow pace, it is a great trilogy with a long-lasting impression, which is probably what should matter in the end.
