This and it's two sequels (Green Mars, Blue Mars) took me a long time to read. They are heavy, weighty in prose and ideas both. From the beginning of exploration through a nearly Trans-human ascendance, Mars is riveting and thought-provoking. A lot of technobabble in places, but it's GOOD techno-babble that presses the characters forward.
