My favorite audiobook of all time! The characters in this book are so compelling and interesting, that the movie could just not do them justice, but the audiobook was able to really bring them to life. I have heard this title all the way through six times now, and I'm sure I will hear I again.
This listen was by far the greatest I have done in a numerous list of books. I had many moments of laugh out loud spurts and occasional tear jerks. A must get for anyone wanting something worthwhile for ages to come.
This novel hooks you with the first line
R C Bray is unbelievable
Story line exciting, realistic and tense all rolled into one
Recommend by astronaut Mark Kelly, based on his knowledge that this was a very realistic account of a possible Mars mission gone wrong.
The book was full of good sarcasm and dark humor. Right up my alley! I laughed a lot of times, and had tears in my eyes at other points in the story. Very well written and also very well performed by the narrator.
Free-spirited creative devouring and devising books. One word at a time.
WOW. Andy Weir's storytelling makes science accessible and fun to even those who find the subject difficult to comprehend. With R. C. Brady's dynamic narration and character-specific voices, the story was an enjoyable, multidimensional experience. A must listen!
(Side note: Some strong language used throughout book.)
Story moves along at a pace that keeps the listener engaged. Between the writing style and the narrator the main character comes alive and feels relatable. You don't need a degree in rocket science to enjoy the story either, things are kept relatively basic and explained well enough for most listener's depth of space technology.
Loved it! Great plot, great detail, and overall a delight! Science filled if you're into that sort of thing but also very easy to understand if your not so scientifically inclined. Highly recommended!
I selected this book just because it got high ratings. I had no idea what it was about. What an awesome book it ended up being!
The story revolves around an astronaut named Mark. Mark ended up being left behind on Mars when they thought he was dead. His ability to overcome diversity and survive dozens of lethal incidence keeps you mesmerised.
Can they get back to Mars to rescue him? Even if they could, can he live long enough until they were to show up?
Lots of twists and turns and unthinkable solutions.
