read: Moving Mars (4 stars)

Moving MarsMoving Mars by Greg Bear
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Excellent hard science fiction set about 150 years from now. Humans have expanded into the solar system and haven't really changed that much. Mr. Bear does a great job of telling a multi-threaded story from a single viewpoint. There are very few info-dumps, usually to explain politics and history. Most future technology is simply taken for granted. The big exception is a major advance in physics that drives the story. Amazingly, even tech that was far-fetched when the book was written 25 years ago is still pretty speculative so that the story does not feel dated.
