OMG! My new obsession, The Martian by Andy Weir

The Martian

Don’t wait for my review.  Go get yourself a copy of  The Martian by Andy Weir and READ. THIS. BOOK!  If the first 61 pages are any indication this is going to be an amazing read.  The humor is outrageous, a dry witty gallows humor, it is a compelling thriller/survival story about an astronaut stranded on Mars with only 30 days worth of food, no communication and nobody expected to return to the planet for 4 years.  There is quite a bit of science involved, but the author does a good job of writing it  for us who are not so inclined(bright).  Someday Hollywood is going take this book and ruin it with a movie.  Read it first!    Sorry couldn’t wait I had to share…

  1. I have it and am planning to read and review it at some point, but have not gotten around to it yet. The plot sounds interesting. Glad to hear you enjoy it. I was wondering if it is a little redundant after the fairly recent Gravity movie – although I suppose trapped on Mars is a bit different than trapped in outer space. Or is it? I don’t know. I’ll read it.

    • I can see the comparison for Gravity. The book is so much better and yes different, but they are both survival stories. The book has way more characters and science involved. It is also so funny, where Gravity…not so much. I hope you love it when you get around to reading it. Thanks for stopping by and welcome to the world of book blogging, its a lot of fun! Off to check out your blog now…
