The people of Earth now know that the human Colonial Union has kept them ignorant of the dangerous universe around them. For generations the CU had defended humanity against hostile aliens, deliberately keeping Earth an ignorant backwater and a source of military recruits. Now the CU’s secrets are known to all. Other alien races have come on the scene and formed a new alliance - an alliance against the Colonial Union. And they’ve invited the people of Earth to join them. For a shaken and betrayed Earth, the choice isn't obvious or easy.

1934 was a pivotal year in the ongoing battle between the FBI and America's most famous outlaws - it was a year of giant personalities and huge shoot-outs, and it marked the deaths of John Dillinger, Bonnie and Clyde, and Pretty Boy Floyd, among others. But that year, FBI agent Sam Cowley's priority was to nab the most dangerous gangster this country has ever produced, a man so violent he scared Al Capone and was booted from the Chicago mob - Baby Face Nelson.

Passable. I was neither blown away nor completely disappointed. Calling it a Bob Lee Swagger story is a bit of stretch since he's only in the book to anchor the actual main character.

Winner of the Nebula Award for Best Novel, Red Mars is the first book in Kim Stanley Robinson's best-selling trilogy. Red Mars is praised by scientists for its detailed visions of future technology. It is also hailed by authors and critics for its vivid characters and dramatic conflicts.

For centuries, the red planet has enticed the people of Earth. Now an international group of scientists has colonized Mars. Leaving Earth forever, these 100 people have traveled nine months to reach their new home. This is the remarkable story of the world they create - and the hidden power struggles of those who want to control it.

The cover copy states that there was mountains of scientific research that went into this book. Unfortunately it never actually made it onto the page. The first 100 fly to Mars and poof the colony is built and running. No explanation. How do they get around on the surface? They jump in a car and go. Food production? Heat and power generation? Waste and water management? Oxygen production? Physiological effects of lower gravity and increased radiation? Psychological effects of living in such an encapsulated environment? No exploration or explanation. So what are you left with? A twenty-three and a half hour squabble over what is the best political, social and economic ideology. It's as dry as the Sahara.

This book series just keeps going in circles. Humans on Paradise are in trouble. Humans stranded on a barely habital world. Aliens are going to crush Earth. It's your favorite characters stuck in line at the DMV and then stuck in line at the grocery store every single episode. To make matters worse they only ever manage to maintain the status quo. We're SIX books into the "series" now. Piss or get off the pot.

I really had to struggle to push through this one. Bland boring characters and a story so transparent it's easy to see where it's going long before it happens.
