Editorial Reviews

Review

“A staggering book . . . the best novel on the colonization of Mars that has ever been written.”—Arthur C. Clarke
 
“Absorbing . . . a scientifically informed imagination of rare ambition at work.”The New York Times Book Review
 
“Tremendous . . . a high-water mark in novels of Earth emigration.”The Washington Post Book World

Amazon.com Review

The first novel in the astounding trilogy, Red Mars chronicles the lives of the first arrivals to Mars. The planet that the settlers find is empty of life and many of the pioneers want to begin changing the ecosystem right away to be suitable for human life. But the purity of the stark landscape convinces some scientists that it should be preserved. The stakes are high and the players on both sides range from politically naive idealists to ambitious manipulators without discernible scruples. No one can be sure that "terraforming" the planet will succeed, but it is certain to change the face of Mars beyond recognition. Red Mars won the 1994 Nebula Award. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
