Oh dear. How do I begin?
I really did enjoy this and was captivated by what was happening to our friend Mark Watney, Astronaut.
Astronaut … left behind on Mars!
His crewmates thought he had died and retrieving his body would have endangered everyone! So they were not aware that he survives. How could they? Poor guy. But WOW – what a resourceful motivated dude! And funny. I enjoyed hanging out with him even as my eyes glazed over listening to him do the math. And I love math and science. I did admire the guy’s smarts – I just didn’t calculate along with him when he was doing the cipherin’.
The narration was quite good. The story overall is exciting and funny and tense and OMG!!! Will he survive? (of course, he will, right?)
I liked it. I just didn’t like it as OMG-ohGOLLY!!! Rah Rah that I did with my previous reads and so the rating looks bad but only in comparison.
If you like sciency and humor-filled life-or-death adventure stories, READ THIS.
I know I would have given it four slices if I had read this after less stellar reads. Just sayin’. IT IS GOOD! You will likely enjoy it!! SMILES
I am SO LOOKING FORWARD to the MOVIE!!! Ridley Scott and Matt Damon? Sure.
