Completely different from anything I've read before. It was
tough to see why he chose the characters the way he did, but then, when
it started coming together, I thought I saw why. But as they
formed a human society on Mars, and others came, and problems arose, and
rebellion started, it was just too much to handle. Really tough to
evaluate this book. Some good parts, some hard to read areas.
