Review: The Martian


The Martian
The Martian by Andy Weir

My rating: 4 of 5 stars



Survivalist travelogue... on Mars...

Crunchy science, indomitable human spirit. We know nearly nothing about Mark Watney, but we read wanting him to make it. We know he doesn't care for disco and 70s TV, but it keeps him company anyway.
In many ways, this book does an excellent job of conveying what it might feel like to be a "true" explorer.
Recommend, most certainly.
