Green Mars


I have seen many say that Red Mars is the high point of the trilogy, but I don't agree. I loved Green Mars even more than Red.

In this episode we get to see the first generation born on Mars, and how that would be and is different to those who came from Earth. And as always when someone has something good, someone else will want to take it from them, so we started to see the Earth vs Mars situation.

I love the whole issue of to terraform or not to terraform that is presented here. And I love that the characters can see that while they are changing the planet, the planet is also changing them.

I'm glad many of the old characters from Red Mars are still around, it gives us a chance to really grow with them, and I find myself liking all of them more and more.

A very good read.
