It's interesting how much I remember about these books, almost 20 years after having first read them, but even more interesting how much I didn't remember. I didn't remember any of the political stuff. I'm guessing it wasn't as interesting to me then as it is now.

There are some anachronisms in this book, which makes sense as it was written in the 90's. Faxes, tape recordings... but even so, the author pretty much gets smart watches and smart phones (wrist pads), tablets (lecterns), and has somewhat conceived of "the nets," although this vision of the future does not include social media. (I could happily live with that future!) But I think the larger anachronisms are in thinking that there would be so many metanats in the future, and that when they take over each other they become weaker rather than stronger.

One last thing rubbing me the wrong way, although really it does not detract from how much I'm enjoying re-reading this trilogy. Sax claims that the scariest thing for governments is massive protests out on the streets. I say that the scariest thing for governments are free and fair elections. Perhaps if this book were written in 2021 and not 1994, Sax would be a little more jaded about these things. ( )

This is a very memorable book - IMO the most memorable one in the entire series. The synopsis doesn't quite do it justice though. It's not a space opera, and you'll be disappointed if you're expecting one. This series is mostly a somewhat subversive, story-driven critique of corporatism and statism which is written in an engaging (and fun) way.

What sets this book apart is that the colonization of Mars isn't presented as some uplifting tech-driven hopium-fuelled process. This here is a grim, gruelling, conflict-laden intergenerational project where scientific idealism gets crushed under the massive weight of politics and economic realities. In fact, it's interesting to observe the genre shift throughout the series: The technical/ethical debates seen in the first book are at this point somewhat diminished and are increasingly replaced by political/economic bargaining and scheming. And of course, it's not just about Mars - about 1/3 of the book (and the plot) is about climate-change-wracked "malthusian age" Earth and its ripple effects on Mars. ( )

Not as good as the first one. Preachier, and extremely slow paced. Took a while to get through, because I kept getting distracted by anything that wasn't this book. ( )

The story is told from multiple points of view and some are from the original one hundred, which made up the crew of the first colony ship. There are also some new characters too, such as Art a recent immigrant from Earth.

What is left of the original 100 are now well over a hundred years old due to the “treatment” that extends life significantly. Along the 100 and the other colonists there is great disagreement about how best to continue the terraforming and how far to go. Also, tension between Earth and Mars is escalating. Throw in the fact that the first 100 are still being hunted and the situation has become volatile.

There is a lot of great science in this book as well as excellent character development which made for some big data dumbs in places. I enjoy all this information but I get that not everyone likes a story that has the level of detail this one does.

The plot is good but it is slow in places, again, due to the amount of information the author gives the reader. There is a lot of political undertones in the story and the author has a lot of dialogue among the characters about the current and past events that has led to this point. The politics is critical to the plot so I suffered through it and it did add to the story; therefore, I can’t complain too much.

Perfect book, and series, for lovers of hard science fiction. I recommend that you start with book one. There is just too much you will miss if you skip right to book two.

Enjoyed the narration and give that 4 stars also. ( )

So ... if you really really really like this sort of sci fi then cool, it’s for you. But I’ll be honest I read it cause I read the first one and don’t like not reading the entire story.
There are parts I was really into, but just like the first one it does drag. And it’s clear it’s written by a middle aged Cis white male.
You can always tell, cause of the way people are discribed having sex and their body parts. ( )

"Even if you want no state, or a minimal state, then you still have to argue it point by point. Especially since most minimalists want to keep exactly the economic and police system that keeps them privileged. That's libertarians for you -- anarchists who want police protection from their slaves!"
