Blue Mars, by Kim Stanley Robinson

blue_marsI finished in January the last part of the Kim Stanley Robinson’s Mars Trilogy. After two months I still keep thinking about this book and its great plot, fantastic characters and awesome story telling.

If my favorite book for 2007 was Collapse, there is no doubt  that the Mars Trilogy will be the books I will remember from 2008. I strongly recommend you to read them if you like sciences and particularly science fiction and/or astronomy.

The only thing that prevents me to give this final part the maximum grade of 20/20 is its excessive length. (950 pages for the French version). Grade for the trilogy: 19/20. Grade for the book: 19/20. Must read!
