Publisher's Summary

In Red Mars, Kim Stanley Robinson imagined a near future in which humankind established the first colonies on Mars and began to make the planet inhabitable for humans. In this stunning sequel to that Nebula Award-winning novel, Robinson takes the colonization of Mars to a new generation, with a new set of problems and concerns.The initial Martian pioneers had fierce disagreements about how the planet should be used by humans. This led to a war that threatened the lives of billions of people on both Mars and Earth. Now, the second generation of settlers continues the struggle to survive the hostile yet strangely beautiful environment of the red planet. Their decisions and actions will ultimately determine whether Mars will simply be a sanctuary for scientists, a source of raw materials for Earth, or something much more. Richard Ferrone's robust narration of this thrilling, timeless tale captures the fascinating diversity of Robinson's compelling characters, taking listeners to the farthest frontier of humanity's struggle to survive.

What the Critics Say

"This may well be Robinson's best book and possibly the best of the many and various our-future-on-Mars novels to date." (Booklist)
"Yet another masterpiece....I can't imagine anybody else staking out any portion of this immemorial dreamscape with the same elegant detail and thoroughness; it's Kim Stanley Robinson's now and for a long time to come." (Science Fiction Age)

Great second book in the series

I bought the first book long ago and liked it but started listening to other books in between. Now I got this one and I loved it! I really like the way the author portrays the characters, both likeable and not so, even some despisable ones. One gets a better insight on the group of leaders of the first 100, now more mature att over 100 years old. Also the new martians, who they are and what they want.
Mars is being changed slowly through terraforming while Earth is being destroyed. It is a (in my eyes) very probable outcome for our planet.
I will start in number three now!

Green Mars

This follows on from the slower parts of the previous book. It drags on about the atmosphere, in my view it never gets going. A good book for helping you sleep.
