Pretty good book, although not as good as Red Mars. Seems to spend an awful lot of them bulding up to the revolution, and then the revolution come and goes in less thant 30 pages. Seems like an extremely long build-up not an anticlimatic climax.

I loved the way Mars is transforming and as such I was always a bit pissed off at all the time given to the reds (Ann chief amongst them). The terraforming is fascinating and I just don't really understand what debate can there be between luxuriant earth-like planet for humanity to settle and barren unhabitable frozen desert that'll please some death-obsessed geologists. As such I thought the Sax chapter was probably one of the most interesting in the book and I was extremely sad to see him abandon the terraforming attempt in favor or ecopoesy, or put simply, adding a bit of air to a barren, unhabitable frozen desert.
