    Story

    The initial Martian pioneers had fierce disagreements about how the planet should be used by humans. This led to a war that threatened the lives of billions of people on both Mars and Earth. Now, the second generation of settlers continues the struggle to survive the hostile yet strangely beautiful environment of the red planet.

    Story
    Would you try another book from Kim Stanley Robinson and/or Richard Ferrone?

    No to Kim. Yes to Richard.


    What could Kim Stanley Robinson have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Make sense. The politics of her characters and the story are beyond irrational. The characters are reprehensibly irrational.


    What about Richard Ferroneā€™s performance did you like?

    Excellent.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Green Mars?

    The story.


    Any additional comments?

    The only people who would like this book are far out lefties. I spent most of my time angry at the shear stupidity of the plot and of the so-called good guys. I felt the same way about Red Mars, and should never have purchased Green Mars. I regret it.

    I have not finished the book and I will not finish it.
