Blue Mars by Kim Stanley Robinson
The hoped for improvement in this third volume of the Mars Trilogy did not arrive.
The book suffers from the same problem as the other two parts, namely too much technobabble at the expense of character development. I just could not get invested into any of the characters - at times they seemed to be there just to serve as mouthpieces for the next over-detailed infodump.
Not a book where I felt like I had to turn the page to find out what happens next. Eminently put-downable.
