Mars was harsh and unforgiving, but for the colonists who called it home, its future was as bright as the comets that hung in the night sky, for locked in those icy bodies were the water and gases that would make Mars live again, mined from the vast Oort Cloud beyond Pluto. Young Dekker DeWoe yearned to become an Oort miner. But when he finally arrived on Earth to begin training, the mining project was abruptly canceled. Then he began to hear rumors of a plan to force the restoration of the mining -- a plan that would result in the deaths of millions . . . From the Paperback edition.… (més)

Mankind has settled Mars, but the colony is struggling and tenuous and expensive. The Martians are told that Mars will be terraformed by dropping comets on it, restoring Mars' atmosphere. However, the project has to be financed by Earth and it is too expensive.... I thought this was interesting and clever. It is very similar to Robinson's Red/Green/Blue Mars series, though much simplified. ( )

This was a quick read. Only 264 pages with a few one paragraph chapters. Pohl knows his science - I even asked Dad (the physicist) about the elevator into orbit and was pleasantly surprised. This coming of age story follows the hero from adolescence to (young) manhood with few surprises. He does get the girl(s) (sort of) and he does save the world. Mr. Pohl's commentary on capitalism and social conditioning make the deep story behind the young hero's adventure what I spent my time on. In all, it seemed a bit "Lite" but I did enjoy the story. Mom would approve of the young man and she will probabbly find this one in her stack. It did make me want to revisit Huck Finn.

There isn't anything much wrong with Mars that a decent atmosphere wouldn't fix right up.
