The Martian – A Book Review

This book is fun. Period.


I’ve read this book a couple of months back and since then I’ve been recommending it to everyone I know who reads and even the ones who don’t read I had to talk about it. Yea it’s that kind of book.

I don’t read sci-fi very often but The Martian by Andy Weir is one of the very few that caught my attention and when I heard it’s going to be a movie that comes out by the end of this year I thought I’d read it before it did.

The story line was much better than I expected when I first started reading. I read somewhere that this book is like a mix between Cast Away and Gravity so I assumed there’s going to be a guy stranded on Mars and that’s it. I am glad I was wrong. You do get a guy stranded on Mars, but you also get a lot of science terminologies and things you learned in high school (don’t worry you don’t have to remember anything), obstacles and a lot of action and humor where you’ll find passages like this one: “Maybe I’ll post a consumer review. “Brought product to surface of Mars. It stopped  working. 0/10.

  1. I didn’t read the book but I saw the movie .. it is really good even it is impossible for me .. but at least it gives you a preservative how the human can survive. I think it gives some hope and encourage to fight.

    Good one but still cast away my favorite. it made my cry which something hard to do.
