4.0 out of 5 stars Not his best .. but better than most .., 26 Dec. 2010
This review is from: Marsbound (Mass Market Paperback)
In comparison to Forever War this is a lot slower and not as good - but its an intriguing read
It is a bit slow off the mark with quite a lot of the first section devoted to the mechanics of getting to Mars but its does allow time for the main characters to develop. There is plenty of typical inter family 'niggles' that I could have skipped but utlimately shows why the heroine is the way she is ..
And then 'bamg' after a very short period on Mars where she makes an enemy of the colony administrator for a reason that is never really explained you get 'first contact' and after that the pace is very rapid
The interplay between the humans and 'martians' is well done - not the usual exteremes of either ET or Independance Day - as I say not his best but apparently the start of a series
