A galaxy-altering scientific breakthrough on Mars inspires treachery and revolution in this Nebula Award-winning science fiction epic. The child of one of the oldest, most revered family-corporate units on colonized Mars, Casseia Majumdar has spent her entire life in the tunnels that run beneath the surface of her homeworld. As a young college student in 2171, the fifty-third year of the Martian settlement, she experiences a profound political awakening, and her embrace of radical activism only intensifies following a failed diplomatic mission to Earth.   As she rises up through the political ranks back on Mars--with tensions increasing between an oppressive "Mother Earth" and her rebellious "Red Rabbit" children--Casseia soon realizes that an enlightened ideology alone will not save her planet and its people.   But it is a staggering scientific discovery by Martian physicist Charles Franklin--Casseia's mentor and former lover--that will ultimately reveal the depths of the perfidy of the "Terries," forcing an imperiled civilization to alter forever the map of the universe.   A two-time winner of the Nebula Award and a multiple Hugo and Arthur C. Clarke Award nominee, the great Greg Bear has been called "the complete master of the grand scale sf novel" (Booklist). His Moving Mars is a masterful extrapolation of contentious humanity's possible future and a modern classic to be shelved alongside the acclaimed Mars novels of Ben Bova and Kim Stanley Robinson. It's "as good as hard science fiction gets" (The Oregonian).  … (mais)

The same Geo-politacal background as the others in the series, but a bit more intense. The first part is a love story--that bored me, but is important for the rest of the story. The heroine goes to Earth and is christened in the crucible of cutthroat-backstabbing politics as she learns that Earth wants the rest of humanity to join it in political unity--or else! Then we learn of the first love's accomplishments in quantum physics and the balance of power changes. And then the action really picks up as the balance of power shifts again. I can forgive Bear's occasional weaknesses on the power of his strengths. It was well worth the read. ( )

Loses one star because there's a narrative slowdown in the middle - but right when it picks back up, it's a page-turner. I really appreciate Greg Bear's strong women characters and good dialog, while keeping the SF very thinky. It's a great ride, told in retrospect, and extremely entertaining.

I read it when it first came out in the '90's, and read it again this year, feeling quite validated that I'd hung onto my now-battered copy. Is there anything better than reading a battered old paperback that contains a rip-roaring tale? Why, no. No, there is not. ( )

Wonderful account of a woman’s life looking back on the events that led to a cataclysmic conflict between civilization on Twenty-Second Century Mars and mother Earth. Local author Greg Bear does an excellent job of mixing hard SF and sociological SF with a dash of cyber punk all while keeping the female narrator believable and sympathetic. I never knew what was going to happen next (despite the leading title). ( )

Abandoned at 7% into it. Maybe another time, but I lost interest.

A book of two halves. The first is a slow-burn following of the political developments between home planet earth and colony Mars as as Martian society and its politicians mature. It is interesting because of the background, if rather naive about politics. The scond half is more of a pot boiler as Mars makes a technical breakthrough which puts a powerful new weapon in their hands at a point where dark forces on earth are just about to impose their power. Fine in itself but again it is the hard sci-fi background, and the human response to it, which makes it interesting. Overall an enjoyable read but lacking the depth of insight to make it a great book. 15 March 2018. ( )

Greg Bear goes from strength to strength. This new addition to his distinguished body of work is sure to be considered one of the major SF novels of 1993 and a sure award nominee. The very model of a modern SF novel, it excels in a number of dimensions. ...
... it gives us that without which no Greg Bear novel would be complete, a really Big IDEA. ...

The young may not remember Mars of old, under the Yellow sun, its cloud-streaked skies dusted pink, its soil rusty and fine, its inhabitants living in pressurized burrows and venturing up only as a rite of passage or to do maintenance or tend the ropy crops spread like nests of intensely green snakes over the wind-scoured farms.
