Winner of the Hugo Award for Best Novel * Soon to be a series on Spike TV

Kim Stanley Robinson's classic trilogy depicting the colonization of Mars continues in a thrilling and timeless novel that pits the settlers against their greatest foes: themselves.

Nearly a generation has passed since the first pioneers landed on Mars, and its transformation to an Earthlike planet is under way. But not everyone wants to see the process through. The methods are opposed by those who are determined to preserve their home planet's hostile, barren beauty. Led by the first generation of children born on Mars, these rebels are soon joined by a handful of the original settlers. Against this cosmic backdrop, passions, partnerships, and rivalries explode in a story as spectacular as the planet itself.

"Dense as a diamond and as sharp; it makes even most good novels seem pale and insignificant by comparison." -- The Washington Post Book World

"Grand in scope, meticulous in detail." -- The New York Times Book Review

Green Mars --- by --- Kim Stanley Robinson
This one didn’t pass the 50 rule: if by page fifty the novel hasn’t yet hooked you, if the story, the situation or the characters still haven’t found traction, then the book might as well be consigned to the “might have been” shelf. I made an exception for this novel and read on. To page seventy five. Still nothing. So many books, so little time. Goodbye “Green Mars” Good-bye Kim.

Another magisterial entry in the expanding Mars saga. I recently described it to a cousin as having more thought-provoking scientific and social ideas per page than most entire books, a comment I repeat and stand by here. The only drawback is how it suffers from part-2-of-3-itis: one knows going in that nothing too definitive is likely to occur.
