Acclaimed visionary author Kim Stanley Robinson is a Hugo and Nebula Award-winner. Blue Mars is the final volume in Robinson's seminal science fiction trilogy which began with Red Mars and continues with Green Mars. The once red and barren terrain of Mars is now green and rich with life--plant, animal, and human. But idyllic Mars is in a state of political upheaval, plagued by violent conflict between those who would keep the planet green and those who want to return it to a desert world. Meanwhile, across the void of space, old, tired Earth spins on its decaying axis. A natural disaster threatens to drown the already far too polluted and overcrowded planet. The people of Earth are getting desperate. Maybe desperate enough to wage interplanetary war for the chance to begin again. Blue Mars is a complex and completely enthralling saga--as convincing and lushly imagined a future as anyone has ever dreamed. Richard Ferrone narrates this sweeping epic with engaging personality and finesse.

"Last in a trilogy about Mars, this novel represents a significant commitment of time and attention. In a time when Mars is being colonized from Earth, both planets face ecological destruction. This saga of human evolution offers a complex plot, most every aspect of which will provide food for rumination. Richard Ferrone maintains his interest in the story he tells up to the last, which will help the listener to do the same, as this is a book that relies heavily on the narrative voice. He never allows himself to fall into monotony, even when presented with lists of place or person names or long explicative passages. His timing and sense of plot keep the book from bogging down.
