So many well-formed characters, each of them so human and flawed. So many edge of the seat situations. So many dilemmas needing solutions that are less than obvious. What an amazing tapestry Ms. Swanson has woven!
The way life has been depicted, both on Mara and on Earth, is truly captivating.
These books are so much more than just adventure, or thril, or character.development, it is an extraordinary amalgam of all these and more.
Thank you, Ms. Swanson, for an amazing journey into space and time.
Why? Let me tell you. :-)
This whole series is amazing! The combination of hard science fiction, geopolitics (or in this case, interplanetary politics), and the simple human crusade to not only survive and thrive, but to advance and pioneer into new frontiers is just amazing. And to take that broader context and to distill that down and see it through the eyes of one brave young woman thrust into the spotlight as the hero of the Marsian (don't you dare call her a Martian! ;-) ) race makes for exciting reading all around. Each of these books constructs an exciting episode in the overall saga, but it also seamlessly comes together into a large epic that leaves each episode making you craving to know what will happen next.
I won't give you any spoilers, but go ahead and start with Saving Mars (if you haven't already) and just keep reading. And enjoy! And who knows? You may find yourself getting excited about when humans really go to Mars. :-)
Once again, I am so impressed with the main character Jess and her autistic (?) hacker brother, Ethan. There is a lot of enjoying time on Mars through the family left there, time on Earth, and even time on the Moon. It was just so much fun!
Please do yourself a favor and grab the triology for $2.99 Then enjoy a great adventure. Then follow up with the science links that Ms. Swanson puts in the back of the book. It is worth every penny!
I think that Ms. Swanson is an excellent writer and I really look forward to all of her books. I was attempting to sit back and enjoy the finer nuances of Ms. Swanson's writing style. I wanted to go slowly and absorb all of the finer details. I was instead immediately sucked into the book and burned through it in an afternoon. (I'm a very fast reader)
You really should read this series in order, but please read it! It's an excellent series and it is worth your time! Congratulations Ms. Swanson on yet another delightful book!
