Reviews of Moving Mars (1994)
Review by sqbr (2003-06-30)
This is a great book, my favourite science fiction work by my favourite science fiction author!
The science ideas are pretty cool (If a bit far-fetched. Nothing actually wrong as far as my meagre physics skills could tell) and the martian (and to a lesser extent Earth) socities interesting and plausible. The politics of Earth and Mars was a great portrayal of a decent but cautious coloniser's attitude to a newly powerful colony. We empathise with the well drawn main character as she experiences the upheavals (literal and metaphorical) of her home'land'.
