    One thought on “Blue Hearts of Mars”

    1. 1.5 STARSGiving this a star because of Mei the crazy bestfriend Anyone who observes Slapsgiving Day EVERYDAY is worthy of note, but anyone who exercises it against Retta deserves some love I sincerely believe that somewhere in the deep, blue heart of this book is a story worth telling Like a needle lost in a haystack In the middle of Hong Kong Central Station rush hour Which is such a disappointment because I am not a hardcore sci fi reader precisely because my imagination is still trying to get [...]

    2. Taking a look around at the ratings this book has received so far, it looks like I might be on my own here The fact is that I hated this book with a passion.I was ok with the premises sci fi, romance, androids Cool But gosh, if I hated this Retta girl.First of all, for someone who s supposed to be smart she seemed to be oddly immature and naive most of the time But what bothered me the most is how superficial she appeared to be throughout the book To begin with the whole core of the story, her r [...]

    3. Thanks to NetGalley for a copy of this book.The blurb just doesn t do this book justice After reading it, I wasn t expecting much beyond a dry sci fi story about androids on Mars, but Retta s voice was actually really funny She s an overly dramatic hormonal teenager, but her saving grace is that she knows it Her inner monologue is filled with lots of eye rolling that she directs at herself for beingwell, an overly dramatic hormonal teenager Her observations about herself and everyone around her [...]

    4. Seventeen year old Retta Heikkinen is in love with a boy a thoroughly gorgeous, captivating, and mysterious boy known as Hemingway The situation is rather ideal he likes her, she likes him There s just one little problem from synopsis of Blue Hearts of Mars.And so the story starts for Retta Heikkinen, who is smitten by a gorgeous boy named Hemingway They are just like any other young couple starting a new relationship The only difference They live on the planet Mars hundreds of years in the futu [...]

    5. Wow, I enjoyed this tremendously I loved the world building, the plot, and all the creative ideas While the book wasn t heart pounding or a favorites shelf book, I still was completely sucked in Such a cool book The characters were pretty awesome, the romance was sweet, and the book constantly gave off the vibe Read More The Androids theme was pulled off epicly On Mars, Androids are considered completely below humans It is terrible, really This book is mostly about how much unfairness androids h [...]

    6. I received this book from the author as part of a Read and Review I love sci fi I love Mars and anything that has to do with colonizing Mars So, yes, this story was right up my alley and I really enjoyed it It was well written and well edited Retta, a typical teen falls head over heels for a blue heart, or android, which is looked down upon in Martian society and pretty much forbidden The author takes us on a journey of discovery and truth about the blue hearts of Mars The world building of a fu [...]

    7. This is a Read 2 Review These are my honest thoughts Before I say anything, I really, really liked this book I think it has an intriguing concept and raises interesting questions about societal attitudes to themes like prejudice, spirituality, metaphysics, origins, creation, science and it is all done through allegory I think the general tone of the narrative is pitched well and sweetly written With all the above in mind, I think there are some areas that if tightened up will really make what is [...]

    8. A solid 3.0 stars.Blue Hearts of Mars by Nicole Grotepas is an interesting book with a good plot line The cover is absolutely breathtaking and when I first read the synopsis I knew that I wanted to read it however, this book took a while for me to get into and I felt like parts of it were too unrealistic for my tastes This novel takes place in the future where humans live on Mars as well as on Earth Seventeen year old Retta Heikkinen quickly falls in love with Hemingway, the only catch is that H [...]

    9. Blue Hearts of Mars was an interesting read for me, though not necessarily in a good way.To start with, I didn t like Retta For the first 100 or so pages, she was completely and utterly full of herself and infuriatingly unconvincing as a 17 year old As the book progressed and the plot picked up, she gradually became likable, but the way she started out was unforgivable Hemingway was the android version of Edward Cullen Nothing to it As for the supporting characters I really liked Mei, I wanted [...]

    10. If you read the plot of Blue Hearts of Mars, it sounds really promising and interesting The cover also looks amazing But Blue Heart is a science fiction, a story about a future of humans living on Mars with so called androids Androids are said to be made by humans, to help them settle on Mars Later humans, lets say perfected androids, making them look and act like humans, except for an incredible strength androids have It looks like they made androids a part of human society, even through androi [...]

    11. Blue Hearts of Mars is a rather unique story that has a unique mesh of revolution, androids, and moral social issues We are introduced to the city New Helsinki which is inside a massive dome on the surface of Mars There is one major difference between the Martian colonies and Earth other than being on a different planet and that s the androids, also known as Blue Hearts They are an integral part of their society and yet they don t stand on even ground with humans and their existence is taken for [...]

    12. Telling Verses Showing.I would like to begin this review by saying I didn t hate the book But I felt like I was missing so much from it I had a hard time getting into it and found myself not wanting to finish it I do think the arthor has a great concept of dealing with future life on mars, forbidden love, and trying to deal with the government, from someone who lives underneath it I felt like the book was to fast and I think that the author could have push all three of these themes in 3 differen [...]

    13. Intriguing possibilities of Transhumanesque romance My review isn t fair.Let me expand on the latter part of the above sentence.I started reading the story but quickly found myself getting puzzled by what seemed like tense jumping It looked like at one point the MC is thinking out aloud, yet a couple sentences later she seems to be addressing the reader directly The effect was to pull and push me An example is on page 9 Before I go any further, let me just explain that I d never done or felt any [...]

    14. This was a captivating read with a youthful voice and tempo The chemistry between Retta and Hemingway hums unerringly throughout the pages Both are likeable, and even though they have vastly different upbringings, both are honorable and especially broadminded The chasm between the machines and humans is broad and deep This future culture makes sense It is unthinkable that a human would fall in love with an android and yet Retta falls in love with Hemingway As Retta searches for answers she uncov [...]

    15. I ll start off with a summary and delve into the specifics.The pros Very talented writing Decent, even likeable characters Convincing setting Great for Young Adult readersThe cons Cheesy, Twilight ripoff romance Too convenient plot twists Ham handed symbolismTwo young lovers about to graduate high school are secretly infatuated with each other, but kept apart by a world too cruel to see past their differences Finally they throw caution to the wind and confess their love for each other The world [...]

    16. Themes of forbidden love, fighting injustice and inequality, discovering government cover ups and coming of age love are always appealing to me, but melding them with a young adult Sci Fi set in an earth colony on Mars involving humans and androids makes this story something that I was unable to pass up.The story opens when a human girl, Retta, working in a mall coffee shop meets her first android, Hemingway She is enchanted by him from the start He s gorgeous and he s personable His warmth, int [...]

    17. To preface, I m the sort of person who actually cried when Data died at the end of Star Trek Nemesis So for meI LOVED this for several reasons.1 I loved the story It s like Bladerunner gone young adult, and it really works especially since I love Bladerunner , and I love Philip K Dick in general 17 year old Retta is human but falls in love with an android named Hemingway Trouble is, that s forbidden by the laws of Mars, where they live I loved the imagining of life on Mars, and the way all the c [...]

    18. Who is me What am I, that I have thought, that I think this, now Blue Hearts of Mars has all the chances to please many.What seems someway quiet at first assumes tension What begins with a flirt amplifies to planetary proportions.It is a love story that blends perfectly with a social one Because yes, even in the era in which we ll conquer the space and will populate other planets we will not rid off vices which unfortunately are firmly planted in many of us.In terms of forbidden relationship, th [...]

    19. 3.5 stars I saw this book on a blog I read, fell in love with the cover and immediately downloaded it onto my Kindle I m so glad I did I love sci fi and this didn t disappoint.Nicole Grotepas is not scared to explore some interesting concepts about intelligence, the soul and humanity A lot of her views resonate with me But don t think this is a heavy philosophical book It s not It s a quick fun read with a well thought out plot, interesting characters and amazing world building Retta lives on Ma [...]

    21. I had just come off a read for review that was a DNF So you can imagine, as a reader, how down I was feeling I went straight into Blue Hearts of Mars thinking that I had lost my mojo but quickly found myself loving the story and the fabulous writing This story is unique in so many ways You may think, androids, been there, done that Don t think that You may think, teenage girl carelessly treating her life like it doesn t matter Don t think that either What you can think is a new evolution of life [...]

    26. Just Because It is Different Doesn t Mean It Is Wrong I was provided this book for an honest review I was a little concerned when I first started reading this book that it would continue on the veins of prejudice I was pleasantly surprised This is a really good book with a lot of social commentaries in it I really like it when the YA books approach and handle difficult social situations.It is true enough that it is a human different species romance like Twilight, but let s admit it, that is what [...]

    27. 4.5 stars, but am rounding up.First of all awesome cover Second, love the fact the book was well edited seems to be a rarity these days, particularly with self published novels.I love how the author populated Mars so descriptive and comprehensive I could clearly picture everything as if I was seeing the movie or was along for the ride The author really thought through every aspect of the cities, monetary system, transportation, housing, etc The back story of how androids and humans came to be on [...]

    28. I m happy to be a part of the blog tour for Blue Hearts of Mars It s always cool to read new books and discover new authors First off, I really like the cover of this book The blue heart thing with the cityscape behind it is cool, I think I just wanted to say that before I delved into a review The concept of this book is a bit different than lots of I have read Androids have been sent to new places, such as Mars, before humans to set up a safe place to live Androids are viewed by humans as lesse [...]

    29. I love the cover it makes a reader too curious of what s inside.Very futuristic but then the Author had a great visual description of the place which is Mars.I visualized when i read like looking into it on a 3D plane so this one gave the details i needed Starting with the use of glass technology, which was called Gate and those Links as the Author called it in her story wired to humans as a way of communication and something like planner or just like a futuristic mobile device Then there s the [...]

    30. This book started out a little slow for me But it quickly picked up the pace as and things came to light I loved the relationship of the Main Characters.Retta and Hemmingway, the blue heart had such an intense and wonderful way of relating I loved the moral lesson of this book that everyone is the same I think this is an important lesson especially in today s day and age of violence and hatred.Blue Hearts of Mars is a science fiction story and as such does deal with some interesting things in [...]
