Publisher's Summary

Greg Bear is "a writer who is rapidly redefining the shape of the modern hard science-fiction novel" (Keith Ferrell, Omni magazine), and in Moving Mars he explores one very plausible scenario for the future of Earth's neighboring planet.Mars is a colonial world governed by corporate interests on Earth. The citizens of Mars are hardworking, brave, and intelligent, but held back by their lack of access to the best education, and the desire of Earthly powers to keep the best inventions for themselves.The young Martians - the second and third generation born on Mars - have little loyalty to Earth and a strong belief that their planet can be independent. The revolution begins slowly, but matures to its inevitable conclusion.

Critic Reviews



Hugo Award Winner, Best Novel, 1996
"It all adds up to a blowout of a book, perhaps the best of the recent Mars novels, and certainly one of the best sf novels of the year." (Publishers Weekly)
"Moving Mars is an accomplished, thoroughly mature novel that should be placed at the top of anyone's `to be read' stack." (Science Fiction Age)
"Stunning and remarkable invention and extrapolation." (Kirkus Reviews)

One of my favorites

This has always been one of my favorite books and I was very happy that Audible added it to it's library (the original tapes were dual track and had terrible sound quality). Greg Bear is one of those hard science authors that can write compelling believable characters and not bury you under a high tech facade. The science itself is amazing and high concept. Bear tends to write more contemporary, near future Scifi these days and I love his books, but Moving Mars is top form traditional Scifi.

Terrible quality audio recording

I read the book 20 years ago and enjoyed it. This audiobook is terrible quality, heavy bass, inconsistent volume levels, cut off sentences. Very low bit rate. Audible seriously needs to put up a quality version of this book. I'm asking for a refund.
