This bittersweet story takes us to a bleak and wintry Red Planet, where the terraforming effort has gone terribly wrong. A group of original colonists set sail in an iceboat across the frozen seas of Mars, many years after their first epic journey, hoping to relive their past and to touch the sky one last time.

    " I usually love slow and boring, and the first half - which is slow and boring - is pretty fine. A 'realistic' account of settling on Mars. Then it jumps forwards a decade and goes bonkers. I won't be reading book 2! "

    " What a good book! This book is like the classic example of "science fiction as social commentary." Case in point: Fredric Jameson is thanked in the acknowledgements. I would love to write a paper about this book in a postmodern fiction class. "

    " This book begins with a great premise, but falls to sleep with tired plotlines... How can the terraforming of a planet be boring? "

    " Red Mars was my first venture back into hardcore SF after an absence of many years, and what a fabulous re-introduction! A sweeping expansive vision, told with a minimalist prose style. Simple words for complex politics and ideas. I can't say enough about how good this book is. "
