You could say the majority of the book (400 pages) is all backstory and character development, if not the entire thing.
All so the last 100 hundred pages can stitch up the story nicely with emotion, action and alleven a little nostalgia (it's a long book).
The main character was nicely set up over time.
Very epic.
She made a few leaps in skill level that could be a little unbelievable but the author kept her humble enough.
Same could be said for the suspension of belief regarding some of the more scientific applications within the story.
Yet the book was very wellresearched in all aspects.
Another reviewer called Bear a master of extrapolation.
Which is dead on in this story.
Loved the mars vs.
earth political storyline.
Prevalent in lots of scifi but woven together nicely into a doomsday nuclear stalemate type of war scenario, but with a wonderfully new and simple solution: if you can't stand the heat in the kitchen, move the kitchen.
If you get stuck or bogged down in the first half of this story, try to read on.
I think your struggles will pay dividends in the end.

Now this is one of those books that was handed to me by a colleague and has sat unread on my bookshelf for possibly more than a year.
But once I started reading, I was transported forward into Mars in the 22nd century.
More of a political thriller with plenty of scientific information placed in to help the world building, humans don't appear to have evolved very much.
Still lots of plotting and backstabbing and heartache.
But it sure was a good story!

Goodreads review published 28/03/20 Greg Bear's Moving Mars was nominated for the Hugo Award in 1993, sold well, and was acclaimed by some reviewers.
I loved every word of Kim Stanely Robinson's Mars trilogy, and wanting to learn more about the Red Planet, I read Moving Mars.
I was nearly instantly disappointed.

Moving Mars concerns a rebellion of the people of Mars against a hostile government on Earth.
Central to this event is the discovery of a small team of Martian scientists that spacetime is malleable and objects can be easily converted into energy or moved across immense distances.
The inhabitants of Mars decide the solar system is no place for them and move Mars 10,000 light years away.
The plot is somewhat reminiscent of Poul Anderson's risible Future History (beginning with HARVEST OF STARS) in which Earth is evil and oppressive and only the libertarian spacers can save humanity.

Prior to the publication of Moving Mars Greg Bear was an excellent writer.
His 1985 work EON and its wild sequel ETERNITY were innovative, wellwritten classics of science fiction.
In Moving Mars, on the other hand, none of Bear's talent is visible.
The characters are unrealistic, and the writing is as bad as a massmarket paperback you'd find in an airport.
Two of the most crushing blows concern the plot and the science behind it.
The plotting is badly done.
It is one thing for a writer to develop a plot and then introduce a surprise ending, but Bear doesn't even expose the plot until the last 100 pages, meaning that the reader has been forced to waste his time for three hundred pages.
Bear's physics are also loopy, rather odd considering that he is trained in physics and his former novels wielded this training well.
In Moving Mars, however, the basics of Bear's science are not necessarily implausible, but the physicists go from discovery to implementation in an unrealistic amount of time.

There are a number of nonsensical developments in the book.
Why is being bound to Earth necessarily bad? The Martians rebel against a Terran government that shows itself only benevolent, How can Casseia find herself VP of Mars at the age of 30, especially when she has no legitimate political experience? Also, how could Bear write a novel about Mars and hardly mention its landscape and the issue of terraformation?

Moving Mars is a juvenile work that can't stand up against science fiction classics.
For an excellent work on Mars, check out Kim Stanely Robinson's epic Mars trilogy (RED MARS, GREEN MARS, and BLUE MARS).
Robinson's superb prose describes the beauty of the landscape like a Gary Snyder poem.
If you want to try a Greg Bear novel, try EON and ETERNITY instead of Moving Mars This thing about settling Mars always devolving into political strife has to stop.
Moving Mars is probably my favorite hard Scifi book I've read! Although the first half is mind boggling and full of politics and science that I didn't understand whatsoever, the 2nd half more than makes up for it with the breathtaking action.
Again, as in the first six or ten times I've read this, as I flipped the last page, I let out the breath I've apparently been holding for hours! (Yes, I know I didn't really hold my breath for hours, but it sure feels like it!) Storyline: 3/5
Characters: 3/5
Writing Style: 3/5
World: 4/5

Using some rough measure of quality, one could make a convincing argument for Moving Mars being categorized alongside Queen of Angels and Heads, the first two volumes in this loosely connected series.
None of them rank among the greats of science fiction but all are clearly above the averagequality works that so populate the genre’s shelves.
Lumping in Moving Mars in such a category, however, obscures just how much inferior of a book it is, particularly when compared to the first in the series.
Still, it deserves recognition of its own merits.
There were several good pieces within this book.
There’s what stands out as its own short story at the beginning.
The writing and characterization never got better than it did in here.
It was from an author looking back with the wisdom brought about by years but still remembering the impressionableness of youth.
Bear weaved the two together in a short tale that carried through it a wonderful aura of foreboding.
There is a stark shift when this lead segment reaches its climax and the story turns to developing the bigger world.
For readers having read the first two in the series, this was somewhat scenic and plodding, many of the background political developments explained in Heads.
What is here is new, but it is a refresher, the reader waiting for the big new developments.
And while we wait Bear drops in neat technological tidbits that fill the world.
I loved the mostly unexplained embellishments such as “sheets of artificial sun” and edifying viruses.
I enjoyed the tour across Mars.
His descriptions of Earth, from the viewpoint of humans born on Mars, were some of the most beautiful and affecting passages of the book.
Bear has exciting things he wants to reveal, and he will get to them, but they never find the right entry point.
Bear also wanted to make this a political thriller, but it too never quite found the right placement and development.
So many of these pieces were good: the perspective, the tone, the picture, the tension, the idea, but the reader can tell that they are never pulled together into an overarching vision.

Widely read science readers also cannot get through this without comparing Moving Mars to what has become a classic, if not epochal science fiction staple, released only the year before (view spoiler)
