Winner of the Nebula Award for Best Novel, Red Mars is the first book in Kim Stanley Robinson's best-selling trilogy. Red Mars is praised by scientists for its detailed visions of future technology. It is also hailed by authors and critics for its vivid characters and dramatic conflicts.

For centuries, the red planet has enticed the people of Earth. Now an international group of scientists has colonized Mars. Leaving Earth forever, these 100 people have traveled nine months to reach their new home. This is the remarkable story of the world they create - and the hidden power struggles of those who want to control it.

Although it is fiction, Red Mars is based on years of research. As living spaces and greenhouses multiply, an astonishing panorama of our galactic future rises from the red dust. Through Richard Ferrone's narration, each scene is energized with the designs and dreams of the extraordinary pioneers. Download and start listening now!

    " Wow, I love these books. Robinson's vision of the future is so well-imagined, and so full of compelling characters, that you end up with the sense that you are reading a history rather than speculative fiction. The books operate at so many level at once: the flow of human history and how it is affected by individual personalities, the way technology may soon allow us to alter things on a scale never before imagined, politics & utopianism & revolution, love & violence. This is one of those books/series that changed how I see, as if the world was a slightly different color after reading it. "

    " Almost the perfect sci-fi book. Very beautiful, very descriptive. A great recommendation. "

    " Have now tried to read this three times, and to say it drags is a massive understatement. I really like KSR as an author, but he writes some massive junk to go with his terrific stuff. "

    " I felt this was probably a very realistic interpretation of any colonization attempt on Mars. Therefore, it was very depressing. "
