Moving Mars by Greg Bear
Moving Mars

rgfisher, January 2, 2011

My favorite read for 2010 was Greg Bear’s Moving Mars. Though it starts slow as it explains the colonial development of Mars and the growth of the main characters’ backgrounds and personalities, the pace eventually picks up and this book becomes a true thriller. Set against a background of artificial intelligence, genetic engineering, quantum computers and amazing science, this is really a book of political and ethical conflict told from the perspective of Casseia Majumdar, a student who reluctantly becomes a politician. Complex and thought provoking.
