First off. This is a breathtaking cover. I love it. One of my all-time favorites.
This is one hell of a novel by Andy Weir. Mark Watney is such a great character, and his story, and the story of those trying to save him after he finds himself stranded on Mars after a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, is captivating. The story is gripping, with many amusing and touching moments set within. The story is technical, with a lot of facts and science so if you don’t like that… well, get the book anyways because this book will make you like that sort of stuff.
This is one of those rare books that you can listen to, read, over and over and over again. I absolutely love it. And I can not wait for the movie. If it’s even half as good as the book it’s going to rock.
By this story, regardless of what format you prefer. Seriously, quit reading this and buy the book.
