    This book, and both its sequels, are freaking amazing. A lot of sci-fi that focuses on the science does so to the detriment of character development, but this has both a solid science story and compelling, well fleshed-out characters, set on a world which KSR does a great job explaining the changes which occur over centuries. There's a little hand-waving genetics, but otherwise the technologies, ecology, and political implications are very plausible, and very compelling. This would be at the TOP of my list.

    The "review" at http://bestsciencefictionbooks.com/best-hard-science-fiction-books.php is about Foundation, not this novel. Did you have anything to say about Red Mars?
