it was amazing
bookshelves: science-fiction
Read from July 07 to August 12, 2011

Moving Mars was a more modern take on mutually assured destruction that managed to be terribly entertaining without reminding me of all the other Cold War sci-fi novels. Bear smoothly integrates the sci-fi musts, new technology and environments, with the new political situation arising between a socially advanced Earth and relatively backward colony Mars. The main character is a likeable, realstic and strong female Martian interested in a career in studying Martian/Earth relations. The story follows her as she is sucked into the political conflict made completely unstable by a new fundamental breakthrough in physics by a Martian research group which allows one to change matter to anti-matter at near infinite distance among other paroler tricks. With the ability to decimate the earth, the conflict comes to a precipice as Earth realizes that the people of Mars are too great a risk to continue existing.
