Kim Stanley Robinson has a Knack for writing a book that keeps you reading page after pager, not wanting to put the book down. The store line contains an incredible amount of real scientific information that make the story very easy to follow & enjoy

5.0 out of 5 stars Best read March 13 2013
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
A tad slow paced, but strongly character driven, I would happily say that the Mars trilogy are the best books I have ever read. Lots of science, interesting story telling, believable events, and a nice break from the classic hollywood tension curve.

Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
This whole series: RED, GREEN and BLUE, fully explore Mars like we wish we could, but can't afford.

Character development is great as are the various scientific aspects of the books.

Lots of adventure and excitement throughout make it an enjoyable read from start to finish. I've read this series twice now, IT'S THAT GOOD

5.0 out of 5 stars Green Mars by Kim Stanley Robinson July 8 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This second volume of Kim Stanley Robinson's Mars Trilogy is a very worthy Hugo winner. Although there are elements of RED MARS I did not like (which I'll not go into now), with RED MARS as a background, I found GREEN MARS to be brilliant. If you haven't read Red Mars, don't tackle this volume first.
KSR really did his homework in studying the social scientific aspects of his novel (as he did with the rest). The metanational and transnational corporations are a believable outgrowth of current economic trends and their reactions toward Mars and its denizens in GM logically follows their development in the novel. KSR also did a better job of staking out the various issues and ideologies involved in terraforming, giving the policy and political middle-ground between the Reds and the policy of the Transnational Authorities (which is terraforming as quickly as possible moving toward a viable atmosphere on Mars).
The Part entitled "What is to be Done" was excellently written and extremely realistic (even if I have trouble believing that with all the political elements represented that some didn't opt out because of ideological extremism). That the group left without any real political action plans made the section even more convincing. The culture of the youth born on Mars seen through the eyes of members of the First Hundred shows a wonderful sense of cultural development with all the elements it entails including genetics, the Martian environment, and how they were raised (interacting with the first two).

5.0 out of 5 stars A masterpiece of hard SF... April 5 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Let's be clear: this book is long, incredibly in-depth and can be hard work to read. While reading its predecessor, I had to put it down for a while before finishing, and this book is a worthy sequel to Red Mars.
That being said... it is absolutely a masterpiece. The characters are deep, the science is dead-on and the story is a broad, grand arc encompassing many small events in an overall future history. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and it's my favorite of the trilogy.
Just be ready to take your time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of Three... Oct. 3 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Green Mars is the best of a great Trilogy. Fast paced and once again depicting vividly imagined Martian vistas this book is the quickest read of Robinson's Trilogy. Also, with the introduction of several new characters Robinson continues to explore in immense detail how people are constantly shaping Mars...and how Mars returns the favor to those living on her.

3.0 out of 5 stars Tolerable middle Sept. 21 2003
By Isabeau
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Robinson's Mars Trilogy begins as admirably written hard science fiction, based for the most part on physics and geology. As the story progresses, the plot is based more and more upon Robinson's previous suppositions than on fact - in short, he begins to extrapolate. By the last page of the last book, we're asked to believe that human beings can postpone death almost indefinitely, have solved the problem of war, and are ready to colonize space, all in about three hundred years. My willing suspension of disbelief wore out about two-thirds of the way through the last book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Second volume in Mars series July 18 2003
By JW
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The colonists revolt has been crushed and Earth's metanational corporations now control the planet. The "first hundred" colonists have been forced underground and bide their time before organising another attempt to gain independence and control their own destiny and that of Mars.
In style, this is much like the previous instalment, Red Mars. It is slow moving and filled with loving geological and geographical descriptions of the planet. Again, hard core sci-fi fans will enjoy this book however personally I found it at times long drawn out and tedious.
