The final novel in Kim Stanley Robinson's massively successful and lavishly praised Mars trilogy. `The ultimate in future history' Daily MailMars has grown upIt is fully terraformed - genetically engineered plants and animals live by newly built canals and young but stormy seas.It is politically independent.

A brave and buzzing new world. Most of the First Hundred have died. Those that remain are like walking myths to Martian youth.Earth has grown too muchChronic overpopulation, bitter nationalism, scarce resources.

For too many Terrans, Mars is a mocking utopia. A dream to live for, fight for... perhaps even die for.

Review by

I tried to love this trilogy. Really, I wanted to love this book too... As I said before he basic concept is absolutely fascinating. To see the Mars terraforming, to imagine what it's like.... To watch the political skirmises of a new world... But I'm sorry to say, sometimes it's damn boring written. It would be a so better read without a few hundred pages. A great pity....
