Red Mars by Kim Stanley Robinson Book Summary

Winner of the Nebula Award for Best Novel • Discover the novel that launched one of science fiction’s most beloved, acclaimed, and awarded trilogies: Kim Stanley Robinson’s masterly near-future chronicle of interplanetary colonization.
 
“A staggering book . . . the best novel on the colonization of Mars that has ever been written.”—Arthur C. Clarke

For centuries, the barren, desolate landscape of the red planet has beckoned to humankind. Now a group of one hundred colonists begins a mission whose ultimate goal is to transform Mars into a more Earthlike planet. They will place giant satellite mirrors in Martian orbit to reflect light onto its surface. Black dust sprinkled on the polar caps will capture warmth and melt the ice. And massive tunnels drilled into the mantle will create stupendous vents of hot gases. But despite these ambitious goals, there are some who would fight to the death to prevent Mars from ever being changed.

Red Mars (Kim Stanley Robinson) Book Reviews

MesmerizingThis book pours on the science of Mars as it is and might well be to colonists. It’s very well written, extraordinarily well researched and offers a compelling story. A great read. It may be, however, a little dry for readers who are used to gripping drama and heroic battles. Here we get a lot of protracted scenes of individuals driving across landscapes, making observations. Mars itself is the main character, called Big Man, and he id dead, though perhaps not for much longer..Score: 4/5

Great story of a maybe futureGreat book, you can feel the story…..Score: 5/5

Striking desciption and meticulous detail, but not much storyThis will appeal to those who enjoy hearing about how gigantic feats of engineering make Mars habitable. But while it is generous with such scientific detail, it is weak on human story, reading mostly like a documentary with some scant soap opera thrown in to give it some drama. I wanted it to be over before I was halfway through, but I deeply respect the work that went into creating it, and I suspect the readers who love it will love it a lot..Score: 3/5
