Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The red planet is red no longer, as Mars has become a perfectly inhabitable world. But while Mars flourishes, Earth is threatened by overpopulation and ecological disaster. Soon people look to Mars as a refuge, initiating a possible interplanetary conflict, as well as political strife between the Reds, who wish to preserve the planet in its desert state, and the Green "terraformers". The ultimate fate of Earth, as well as the possibility of new explorations into the solar system, stand in the balance.

Review:

"Robinson's achievement here is on a par with Bradbury's 'The Martian Chronicles' and Herbert's 'Dune,' even if his clinical detachment may leave some readers wondering whether there really is life on Mars." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"This is an ambitious and outstanding trilogy; 'Blue Mars' is the capstone of Robinson's achievement." VOYA
