Darrow is a Red, a member of the lowest caste in the color-coded society of the future. Like his fellow Reds, he works all day, believing that he and his people are making the surface of Mars livable for future generations. Yet he spends his life willingly, knowing that his blood and sweat will one day result in a better world for his children. But Darrow and his kind have been betrayed. Soon he discovers that humanity reached the surface generations ago. Vast cities and sprawling parks spread across the planet. Darrow and Reds like him, are nothing more than slaves to a decadent ruling class. Inspired by a longing for justice, and driven by the memory of lost love, Darrow sacrifices everything to infiltrate the legendary Institute, a proving ground for the dominant Gold caste, where the next generation of humanity's overlords struggle for power. He will be forced to compete for his life and the very future of civilization against the best and most brutal of Society's ruling class. There, he will stop at nothing to bring down his enemies . . . even if it means he has to become one of them to do so.… (mer)

Take one part Hunger Games, one part Ender's Game, and mix in some Harry Potter to taste. Take the whole thing and put it on Mars. Voila Red Rising.

Despite the description--or perhaps because of it--I did actually enjoy Red Rising quite a bit. Essentially Red Rising follows the story of Darrow, a Red (slave caste) of Mars who, with the help of the local freedom fighters / terrorist cell is biomodded to be a Gold (ruling caste) instead. That's the first third or so of the book. After that, we switch to full Hunger Games meets Ender's Game mode with a game of capture the flag cranked up to 11 taking up the rest of the book.

It's a bit of an abrupt switch and honestly I think the book may have been slightly better had it just been the latter section. It just felt so strange to go from the death and oppression of the first third to the much more gamelike (although still deadly serious) remainder. On the other hand, I'm not sure how we could have gotten quite the same motivation. For better or for worse, it does work.

Next up, the world building. The idea of segmenting the human race into a dozen or so color based castes, each of which with enough genetic modification to arguably make them truly distinct species feels just as made up as many YA novels of this ilk are (I'm looking at you Divergent), but it's at least done well. There are enough divisions to be believable and the literal genetic modification and physical differences are a nice touch.

On the other hand, the growth and change of language is just weird. pulseBlade. There are compound words all over the place, with the second always being the one capitalized. I get that it's to give a feeling to the world, but it managed to pull me out of the story just about each time.

All together, it's a solid book. I enjoyed it more than any of its peers (YA, like Hunger Games / Divergent) that I've read. It's not my favorite book ever, but it was enjoyable. ( )

The first book in a dystopian series, Darrow is a "Red," working as a helldiver, mining for resources critical to terraform his home planet (Mars) and others. Darrow is comfortable with his work and love life, married to Eo. Eo wants more for her people, and creates a symbol for her wish. Darrow learns, the hard way, that he is a slave and that Mars has been habitable for generations, committing himself to a new cause. He is transformed into a "Gold," and pitted against others to become a leader, in a winner takes all competition. If you see shades of Hunger Games, you are not alone. Enjoyable and fast paced, Darrow is a good protagonist. ( )

Just to get it off my reading list. I got weary of this and put it down. Too much bleak derring-do. I just didn't care anymore. ( )

adult dystopian sci-fi/fantasy adventure.
Exciting plot with lots of action--Hunger Games meets Game of Thrones (plus maybe a little bit Total Recall). I can see why this has become a popular series, though this first installment could've used a better editor (a couple typos/mispellings and a couple of repeated world-building details). I also wish that there weren't as much homophobic gender-shaming (using variations of "gayness" to insult men; having gay or "less manly" qualities does not make one inferior. I don't think this is necessarily the author's fault, more of a product of the society that thinks this humor is appropriate--however, that doesn't mean an informed author can't help us start to change the way we think about things.

With fantastic world-building and eccentric characters, Red Rising is unlike anything I've read before.

Darrow, the protagonist, really carried the story for me. His struggle, paired with his fierce rage and his personality, make him a character I am interested to see more of. ( )
