I’ve read it. It’s good. It’s not realistic.

I only ever finished the first one. I found it kind of tedious. I loved Pacific Edge and The Gold Coast, though. And especially Escape From Kathmandu.

i started reading Red Mars, but struggled to get into it. possibly because i was reading a few books at the same time but from what i read, i agree with @Rarebear, it’s not overly realistic. Will try again in the future though!

Yes. First, one was good. Second, was OK. Third, I couldn’t be bothered with.

I read them all and really enjoyed them. It was a great romp. I don’t think it could happen in reality, although there were lots of neat ideas.

Red Mars was OK, but I couldn’t get into the others.
