One of the best Mars novels I've read.
I'm a sucker for novels about Mars. I thought John did a great job at writing a story that was fast paced, descriptive, and captivated my love of adventure and exploration. It wasn't filled with huge scientific ideas, or techno-babble. Don't get me wrong, I love hard sci-fi, but sometimes the super heavy science jargon gets in the way of the plot, and the character development. That certainly wasn't the case here. I enjoyed all the characters, and felt their motivations and actions were believable in their situations.
I don't want to give out any spoilers, but there was a point where you find out some more information after someone's death that really made an impact on me.
Without giving any spoilers away, there was a scene that involved an argument between two people that ended badly. Trying to put myself in that situation was hard.
There are a couple of twists in this book that really had me going "oh shit, that's crazy".There are some death scenes which are hard to think about after getting all the information later on in the novel.
I bought this on impulse just by searching for novels on Mars. I thought the summary sounded really awesome, and just went for it. I'm so glad I did. This is definitely one of the best novels on Mars that I've come across. I've been recommending it to all my friends. You really need to check this one out.
