The MartianThe Martian by Andy Weir
My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I could not put this book down. I read it in a day. Andy Weir is my new favorite author. This is the most suspenseful book I've read since The Hunger Games trilogy. It's a problem solving story, so it won't appeal to everyone. A fair amount of prior knowledge about the space program, aeronautical engineering, Mars, physics, electronics, computing and male bravado are assumed by the author. The story is very human on many levels. Weir celebrates courage, ingenuity, loyalty, compassion and hope. I can't wait to see the movie.
