Review of 'Blue Mars' on 'GoodReads'

5 stars

What an absolute powerhouse! I was continuously in awe of the depth and breadth of this master-work. Not only that, but how KSR finally managed to hit his stride with the tone of these novels. Rarely any dry spots, and characters developed to deep, complicated people. Threads of the story masterfully unresolved yet perhaps with some closure and perhaps still very murky - who's to say. The Science in the fiction masterfully written in a manner that for the most part will age gracefully (until, perhaps, we actually manage to build our own Martian colony). Some exceptionally realistic scenarios or at least stories stemming from some of the most interesting scientific conjecture in a whole swath of fields I was certainly not expecting to read about in such a book - but they of course fit the mold.
