I've read a LOT of Sci Fi books over the years. Few characters and settings have stuck in my mind as much as those from the Red Mars series. I really like the story being told from a first person perspective, with a perspective shift to different main characters for large parts of each book, yet staying chronological. Makes it feel like a very personal story from various individuals. Glad you're enjoying it!
