    1. An independent Mars but not a peaceful one, Blue Mars, blue skies, a great , stormy, huge , Martian North Sea, of the same color, turning salty, fish swimming below, birds flying above, animals roaming around the land, majestic trees growing on beautiful hills, sparkling rivers gently flowing by, magnificent green vegetation everywhere on shore, dark clouds that cause showers to pour down, howling winds over 150 miles a hour, making powerful waves crash on pretty little fishing villages and reso [...]


    2. This review of Blue Mars is in fact a review of the entire trilogy, since it's one continuous story -- one that altogether weighs in at something around 2,300 pages. I've been living on Mars for the last 3 months and wish that, if it were possible, I could actually live there, at least the Mars portrayed in these books. It's certainly not a series for everybody -- all those lots of pages are filled with lots of science, lots of politics and political theory, and lots of philosophy. However, for [...]


    3. Christmas 2010: I realised that I had got stuck in a rut. I was re-reading old favourites again and again, waiting for a few trusted authors to release new works. Something had to be done.On the spur of the moment I set myself a challenge, to read every book to have won the Locus Sci-Fi award. That’s 35 books, 6 of which I’d previously read, leaving 29 titles by 14 authors who were new to me.While working through this reading list I got married, went on my honeymoon, switched career and beca [...]


    4. The science is great. I don't agree with all of it, but who am I to say? I would equate his use of science as a literary device to Asimov, except Robinson uses science that is reasonable within humanities grasp. The science is the real strength of this book and series. It is outstanding.His moving from character to character throughout all three books worked well. No points lost there.The real problem with this series and especially this book was that, even though parts of it were fascinating, p [...]


    5. "Here we are." A genre, if not a literary tour de force. Blue Mars concludes nearly 2000 pages of Robinson's middle 1990s future history of the settling and development of Mars. While Robinson strays close to the border of ridiculous social commentary a la Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, most readers will identify his monumental achievement chronicling the physics, chemistry, biology--and, yes, even the psychology and politics of his brave new world.That said, Robinson cut [...]


    6. There’s something of ‘after the lord mayor’s parade’ about this volume. After the revolution of the last volume, I was hoping for something of civil war in this. For the bulk of the narrative though it’s just a lot of characters figuring out what Mars means to them; which although well written, lacks a certain drama. For instance, there’s a long section about blight attacking the potato crop of one of the major characters. Now, if you were actually farming on Mars, that's no doubt a [...]


    7. This review was written in the late nineties (just for myself), and it was buried in amongst my things until today, when I uncovered the journal it was written in. I have transcribed it verbatim from all those years ago (although square brackets indicate some additional information for the sake of readability). It is one of my lost reviews.This volume of the Mars Trilogy departs from its predecessors in one tremendous leap -- this is a work of philosophy and politics before it is a story. And th [...]


    8. The characters of The Mars series are much like Martian volcanoes: flat and shallow at first glance, with little expectation beyond the short horizon. But the horizon deceives, and that gradual slope in development results in a surge that extends miles into the atmosphere. That surge occurs in this third installment, Blue Mars, and leaves the reader gaping into the enormous depths of jagged human emotions.It’s not that KSR intended for his characters to appear two-dimensional in the first inst [...]


    9. More than a review of the book itself, this is a brief review of the whole trilogy.In Red Mars robinson sends his crew of highly-cold-war-themed characters to the Promised La-- I mean, to Mars, where humanity can begin a new era of terraforming, colonization, and all-around awesomeness. But as soon as they arrive there, the colonists, all of them Spacefaring Badasses (except the radical Christian) decide that they wish to establish a New and Utopic Society, and that they deserve, nay, are oblige [...]


    10. For me, this trilogy is one of those life-changing books - something you talk about, and think about years later. If we ever go to Mars - this is the way it should be done. For those of you not familiar with Kim Stanley Robinson, his science is so grounded in real, hard, current science - it's called future history. For those of you scared of sci-fi being too boring - much like that physics class you hated - relax. Robinson gives you the basic idea, without pages to describe just how a particula [...]


    11. Back in my drinking days, I would occasionally wake up next to someone I was sorry to find there, but I would still make them breakfast out of some sense of obligation. Misplaced empathy; too-long-delayed sobriety; vestigial chivalry; call it what you will. Reading Blue Mars was a lot like one of those breakfasts. I had enjoyed myself with book one and part of book two; this was just playing out the string. After I got rid of the novel, I lost its phone number and went to different bars for a co [...]



    12. I just don't even know where to start with this book. There are so many parts of it that aggravated me nearly to the point of distraction, and then there would be a part that was pretty good, and then there would be frustration again, and sometimes I'd want to tear characters out of the book and throttle them. Is it really that bad? Or is it just that I am far too aggravated by what is really a defining feature of many of Robinson's characters in many of his books?Note: The rest of this review h [...]


    13. This final part ends one of the most complex sci-fi series I have ever read. The accent here is put on the development of the natives, their society and also on the their relationship with Earth and the new colonized planets.It is not a light read, however, the way KSR imagined the development on Mars is highly interesting, with the focus not on action but on characters, which are analyzed in great detail.Some will find it boring, but it depends on what your expectations are: if you expect great [...]



    14. "Mars is free now. We're on our own. No one tells us what to do."- Opening lines of Blue Mars(See a longer, more philosophical version of this review on my blog)Blue Mars confirms it: Kim Stanley Robinson's Mars Trilogy has ascended to my personal pantheon of science fiction series. It's up there with Frank Herbert's Dune series, Isaac Asimov's Foundation series, Octavia Butler's Earthseed Duology, Ursula Le Guin's Hainish Cycle, and the Culture series of Iain M. Banks. Like these other masterpi [...]


    15. Quite frankly, it's been a while since I've been this glad to finally finish a book. The first two books in this trilogy had, as I've mentioned, reasonably compelling plotlines that were bogged down in extraneous detail. This one had the same level of detail, but less plot. It suffered from something I find tends to happen in stories of vast and epic scope: lack of cohesive direction, which becomes particularly noticeable as you get toward the end and you can't identify a clear endpoint toward w [...]


    16. Warning: May contain spoilers from Red/Green Mars.The final chapter in the saga of Martian colonization is by far the weakest. You'll probably want to read it if you read the first two, just to round out the story, but it's not the most exciting read, and doesn't really give the resolution you might hope for.The book starts out near the end of the second Martial revolution. This time, the good guys won, or are about to win. The war was relatively (but not entirely) non-violent, and the Martians [...]


    17. I think that I have read this series in its entirety six times. In my opinion, any astronaut or colonist who leaves earth for Mars should be required to read this series. Between my fascination with sci-fi and Mars, combined with some top-notch character development/interaction along with some really great socioeconomic theory (no where near as boring as it sounds) this is my most favourite series, hands down.One thing that I have always enjoyed about KSR's writing is the attention he puts into [...]


    18. I've loved this series. I find it just incredibly hopeful for the future of mankind--with all our foibles and faults--and for the possibilities that getting off this rock would open up to us. But I also love the way in which age functions in these books, and how Robinson imagines what a sudden boon in longevity would mean for us, both culturally and individually. So much of what's imagined here feels possible, if not probable (as is always for me the case with Robinson's work). Get me to Mars. I [...]



    19. The last of the Mars trilogy was much of what I found in the previous two books. There are interesting parts where we get to delve into the science and technologies that are being employed throughout Mars. But in the end the story isn't cohesive enough to actually leave the reader with any idea what the point of the story was. In book 1 we were introduced to a number of different characters which we have followed throughout the series, and we've seen how they've responded to different situations [...]


    20. So the journey of many long m-years comes to an end.As convenient a story device it is to have life extension make the same characters accompany us for so long, the duration engenders an attachment of its own as it must have among the first 100 themselves. It works. The commitment pays off.With the planet unrecognizably changed it has lost some of its lustre as a main character. But then you find out that the Mars trilogy actually is not about the planet but about politics. Naive as they may be [...]


    21. 2.5*That was a chore to get through, but I invested so much time in the other two books, I wanted to see how it ended. Sadly another book with lots of great ideas, boring story. The previous books where more capitvating I must say.On a side note it irks me to no end when authors use foreign words, in this case german, and misspell them. It's Wertewandel not Werteswandel, bad job by the editor.


    22. The most beautiful of the trilogy. Robinson writes with such heartbreaking truth about the relationship between humans and their homes – always adapting, augmenting, eroding, remaking one another.These books can be a slog at times, but the payoff is so real. More than any other sci-fi or fantasy author I've read, Robinson crafts a world that I can really fall in love with.


    23. DNF @ 70%I just couldn't take it anymore. This book was going absolutely nowhere. It felt like Kim Stanley Robinson got bored with this trilogy and had nothing left for "Blue Mars." It was completely boring to me except for maybe 100 pages of this book. I simply refuse to continue reading it. So I jumped to to read what happens, and I'm so glad I DNF'd this book. Just as I suspected, "Blue Mars" went nowhere interesting. I recommend the first two books in the Mars Trilogy, but you can do yourse [...]


    24. End of the trilogyIt was an amazing journey. I kept thinking of the characters and settings when I wasn’t reading. Interesting depiction of aging in the future as well as its consequences


    25. When you start reading the Mars Trilogy, you have to announce your family that you will be "away" for a while. That is because you might feel, like I did, that there is so much to absorb about how the humans become martians, that it demands a real commitment of going along with the story. There is a fragile balance between self-determination ( in the evolution of the new human society on Mars) and adaptation (the molding that the planet imposes on the newcomers); there are powerful conflicts bet [...]


    26. Kratak prikazPlavi Mars je treća knjiga u poznatoj i nagrađivanoj Robinsonovoj trilogiji o kolonizaciji Marsa (Crveni, Zeleni i Plavi Mars). U kratko rečeno, ta trilogija spada u sam vrh SF-a i među najbolje stvari koje sam pročitao do sada. No, prvo jedno upozorenje: cijela trilogija je vrlo spora, što znači da zahtjeva jako puno vremena i strpljenja. Knjige su prepune opisa, refleksija, razmišljanja, izuzetno su guste, i zahtijevaju dosta koncentracije. A i količinski je to sve zajedn [...]


    27. Well, Kim Stanley Robinson has really created something here with this trilogy. First of all, the series started well with Red Mars: the sense of wonder; the challenges and the hard work-Robinson is an excellent technical science writer without becoming pedestrian. The level of research into what the training program might be like for ensuring the best physical; mental and emotional skill sets in the "First Hundred" to go to Mars was fascinating. Robinson's command of, and extrapolation from, wh [...]
