Chronicles the colonization of Mars in the year 2026. For eons, sandstorms have swept the barren desolate landscape of the red planet. For centuries, Mars has beckoned to mankind to come and conquer its hostile climate. Now, in the year 2026, a group of one hundred colonists is about to fulfill that destiny. John Boone, Maya Toitovna, Frank Chalmers, and Arkady Bogdanov lead a mission whose ultimate goal is the terraforming of Mars. For some, Mars will become a passion driving them to daring acts of courage and madness; for others it offers an opportunity to strip the planet of its riches. And for the genetic "alchemists, " Mars presents a chance to create a biomedical miracle, a breakthrough that could change all we know about life, and death. The colonists place giant satellite mirrors in Martian orbit to reflect light to the planet's surface. Black dust sprinkled on the polar caps will capture warmth and melt the ice. And massive tunnels, kilometers in depth, will be drilled into the Martian mantle to create stupendous vents of hot gases. Against this backdrop of epic upheaval, rivalries, loves, and friendships will form and fall to pieces, for there are those who will fight to the death to prevent Mars from ever being changed. Brilliantly imagined, breathtaking in scope and ingenuity,… (mais)

2021 Review:
I pretty much feel the same as I did nearly 20 years ago when I read this book for the first time. I think the author could have chosen a little more wisely what to emphasize, and maybe chop 100 pages out. By the end I was ready for the book to be over, but still looking forward to reading the next two. It's been a long time so I remember the overall themes but not the particulars, so the book was still interesting to me.

I have to say, this book is not bad as far as sci-fi written in the 1990s. It's not like super feminist or anti-racist or anything, but it's not bad for late 20th century sci-fi. Some of the women characters kind of suck, but they're not one-dimensional, or just foils for the men. I'll keep reading.

2004 Review:
Very lengthy, very verbose, and very slow going, this book is still worth all the effort as the story twists and turns and develops, completely sucking you in the entire time. The entire trilogy is great. ( )

Engaging enough to read the next book. It got a bit boring in the middle but it may have just been the pace I was reading at. The ending was fairly gripping though. ( )
  nosborm | Oct 10, 2021 |
Smart, thought-provoking science fiction, but episodic and rambling. I put it down half way through not because it was bad but because there wasn't a narrative need to make it to the end. It's an epic without an arc. ( )

I was tempted to give this "novel" a one-star review, but it was better than that. Not much, however.

I was so disappointed in this one, I gotta say. Was excited to see the world-building I'd heard a lot about, was ready to get sucked into an engrossing series that promised some hard-core science.

Instead, I got characters who read like they were written in the 1950s by some Amazing Stories hack, characters who were thinly developed between expansive descriptions of the surface of Mars, which even after reading this book is no more interesting that you would think it is.

I don't know how a book that is only 20 years old can feel so dated. I wondered at one point if that was the intent, but I doubt it. Regardless, we get one-dimensional figures with one-dimensional motives for doing very little of anything. The political aspect, particularly between Earth and Mars was stupid and felt tacked on, almost as if the author got to the end of this tediously long Martian travelog and said, "Oh, wait. I suppose they need to actually do something," and slapped some thin population "message" and ... action? ... in the last fifty pages. Yuck.

So, I'm the idiot for finishing this book. Normally I don't persist this long, but I just couldn't believe there was no there there. That's two weeks of good reading I ain't getting back. ( )

Entertaining premise; interesting story. Way too much exposition. ( )

"We became friends first," Arkady said once, "that's what makes this different, don't you think?" He prodded her with a finger. "I love you."
When you expect to live another two hundred years, you behave differently from when you expect to live only twenty.
Possess nothing and be possessed by nothing. Put away what you have in your head, give what you have in your heart.
