Highly entertaining. It reminds me of Heinlein's juvenile novels. In this story, a group of scientists and teenagers are living in a colony on Mars. The purpose is to prove that such a colony can be self-sustaining. That becomes especially important when the economy on Earth collapses and the entire planet becomes involved in war and political upheavals.

This book is terribly boring. I was hoping to find some decent sci-fi to read with my kids, but unless the next two are much better I'll have to pass on these.

I've resorted to Youth books. Not really desperate just in the mood for a change.
