A story about the colonization of Mars. It was filled with characters who had no redeeming qualities. Nothing in this book appealed to me at all. From dysfunctionality on a 100+people size to large paragraphs rambling about Mars to the pure pettiness of the characters involved, nothing interested me.

It was almost like Robinson set out to write a book about the worst set of exceptional characters as possible. It was well written [I mean, I read til the end even though I didn’t like anybody], but that is not enough to tempt me to read the other Mars books.
