Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"One of the major sagas of the [latest] generation in science fiction." Chicago Sun-Times

Review:

"Yet another masterpiece....I can't imagine anybody else staking out any portion of this immemorial dreamscape with the same elegant detail and thoroughness, it's Kim Stanley Robinson's now and for a long time to come." Science Fiction Age

Review:

"Grounded in current and projected technology, yet relying on human drama to propel the story forward, Robinson's latest novel is solidly written and powerfully explicated." Library Journal

Review:

"This may well be Robinson's best book and possibly the best of the many and various our-future-on-Mars novels to date." Booklist

An amazing second book in the Mars trilogy. If you loved Red Mars you have to continue the story with Green Mars

I enjoyed this just as much, if not more, than I enjoyed Red Mars. It's exciting to see the political and environmental life of Mars morph and change. Sax is now probably my favorite character in the books, next to Nadia; the way he can be distracted by interesting plant life even in the most dire situations is something I identify with and also am amused by. I even started to like Maya a little bit in this one. One of the interesting things about Robinson's style is the way he switches points of view, and the way that this effected my reaction to the characters.
