The story admittedly starts out slowly. The reader is left wondering exactly what a student revolt at a Martian University has to do with anything. The first 100 pages, while far from boring, don't give you a glimpse of the marvels in the rest of the book. However, once you pass that mark, their is no going back. Cancell all of your appointments and call in sick at work, you will not be able to put this book down.
Greg Bear masterfully weaves together a plot full of political intrigue, character interests, imaginative future technology (that actually makes sense when explained! ), and of course the threat of total armaeggedon.
I don't want to give away too much, but by the end you will no doubt consider yourself a Red Rabbit (Martian) and be so wrapped up in the lives of the characters that you will almost forget that we are still confined to this lonely planet Earth.
Bear's portrayal of the not-so-distant future is truly monumental. I have read a great many hard sci-fi novels and this one outshines them all, with the possible exception of Forge of God (also by Greg Bear).
