Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he's alive--and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plain-old "human error" are much more likely to kill him first. But Mark isn't ready to give up yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills--and a relentless, dogged refusal to quit--he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next. Will his resourcefulness be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him?… (lisätietoja)

I went into this book with high expectations and I'm happy to say I was not disapointed. Mark Watney's humour was excellent and helped him deal with his situation.
I would have liked to have seen more of the other members of the Hermes crew because they sound like great characters and it would be great to see them interact more. Andy Weir wrote a great book that shows that a lot of research and thought went into it. ( )

This book represents a masterclass in contrasts. It’s sarcastic yet serious, technical yet simple, monotonous yet enthralling.

I read the book in three sittings over two days. Quite simply, it was one of the most fun-to-read books I’ve ever come across. The narrator’s voice is sarcastic, witty, and (sometimes) full of puns. It’s also serious and filled with technical details, most of which flew right over my head. Despite that, it still feels refreshingly simple and approachable. More than that, I think it makes the premise that much more plausible.

However, it’s also quite monotonous at times. A chunk of the book is dedicated to potato farming on Mars, which, to be honest, isn’t exactly the most exciting thing to do. Weir’s writing, nonetheless, makes it an interesting and exciting spectacle. The result is a thrilling take on farming and botany that you won’t find elsewhere. You will hold your breath during some parts of the book, which I dare not spoil over here. Truth be told, it may seem boring at times, but you’re in for some brisk, quick-witted writing.

The characters come across as realistic. NASA scientists and engineers, administrators, politicians, and the media were quite well represented. I really liked the narrator and his undefeated sense of humor throughout the massive ordeal. However, I felt that his psyche didn’t change at all. Stranded on a planet with no human beings will change a person, and it simply isn’t handled over here. Other than that, I have no complaints at all.

I truly loved this book. I look forward to watching the movie adaptation! ( )

Holy hell.

I've been really enjoying quite a few books lately. I mean really enjoying them.

None of them have come close to The Martian. I never much react in any visible way when I read a book. There's been a couple of times I've been scared (The Shining) and there's been a few times a book has choked me up or made me smile. But this novel had my heart actually fluttering in fear--I'm not exaggerating and this isn't a figure of speech, I felt a literal fluttering in my chest--and there were times I laughed right out loud. There were times when I choked up.

All this from a SF novel.

Now, having said all that, unless you're the type that actually enjoys hard science fiction...the type that actually uses science and not some bullshit made up crap (yeah, I'm looking at you Star Wars), then stay the hell away from this book. Weir throws a fair amount of chemistry, physics, and a hell of a lot of numbers at the reader. Granted, it's all done in a ridiculously entertaining manner that no one since my Grade 13 Chemistry teacher, Mr. DeLaMatter has ever been able to accomplish, but still, it's science and it's numbers.

But that's the subversive beauty of this book. If you grok the numbers, if you understand the precise peril and the scope of the hurdles Watney must overcome to survive, it just makes a thrilling novel even that much more of a thrill ride.

Honestly, I can't express how much I enjoyed this novel. Seriously, this is a damn 7 stars out of 5 for me.

I can't see any book being more enjoyable than this that I'll read this year. ( )

Disclaimer: I received this book from the Blogging for Books program in exchange for an honest review.

Within days of landing on Mars, the crew of the Ares 3 mission is forced to abandon the planet due to a strong sandstorm. In the course of evacuating, astronaut Mark Watney is hit with an antenna and dies. But while sensors indicated he was dead to the crew, they were wrong. Watney has survived and has been left behind with no way of communicating with the crew or with NASA back on Earth and definitely not enough supplies to make it until the Ares 4 crew arrives on the planet years from now. But he's not one to just give up without trying and plans to use both his engineering and botany training to see just how long he can make it and if there might be some way to let those back at home know he is okay.

I was honestly surprised at how easily this one sucked me in. Most of the book is Watney's mission logs--first person accounts of what he's doing and thinking as he works to survive on Mars--but they read easily and are, at times, a bit entertaining, too. There are some cutaways to Earth and the crew that run in parallel to the logs to provide the story of what's going on off-planet. While this is science fiction, it reads as nearly believable, and I think that adds to the authenticity and the humanity of the storytelling. I normally don't enjoy hard science fiction (I prefer touches of the fantastic), but I really enjoyed this one. It's not overly action-focused and it comes off a bit understated, but it's very much worth the read. ( )

One of the best books I have read this year! It definitely makes my re-read shelf. His sense of humor coupled with the technical details make this a truly unique find. Awesome. ( )

The Martian is technically a “hard science fiction” book – a subgenre of science fiction so firmly rooted in science that the story wouldn’t work without it. And certainly, Weir’s first work is science-heavy; he even mentioned in an interview that the book was an exercise in whether he could make a fictional narrative out of the scientific premise of the novel. The answer, obviously, is “yes,” and The Martian is an intriguing exercise in the way that science itself can create plot.

Also, I have duct tape. Ordinary duct tape, like you buy at a hardware store. Turns out even NASA can't improve on duct tape.
I need to ask myself, "What would an Apollo astronaut do?" He'd drink three whiskey sours, drive his Corvette to the launchpad, then fly to the moon in a command module smaller than my Rover. Man, those guys were cool.
Yes, of course duct tape works in a near-vacuum. Duct tape works anywhere. Duct tape is magic and should be worshipped.
As with most of life's problems, this one can be solved by a box of pure radiation.
Hurray for standardized valve systems!
