This is the most amazing book I've read in a long time. Kudos to the author for figuring out all the calculations whether they were real or not and writing a most suspenseful and creative--and almost believable book.
The reader nailed the tone of the characters, and scenes, I laughed out loud several times at Watneys log sessions. The book is excellent and the audio book is a great way to pass time.
This book is absolutely incredible. The book pulled me in quickly and I didn't want to ever put it down. R.C. Bray's narration fits the style of this book very very well. I sincerely recommend this book to anyone just starting using audible, anyone who loves sci-fi, and everyone looking for a good book.
"The Martian" is a great story. The novel requires a good deal of technical description, but the reader does a good job of making it all enjoyable. My MAJOR issue with this audiobook is the accents used by the reader. There are South Asian, East Asian and Hispanic characters in this novel, and sometimes the accents used are TERRIBLE!!! The South Asian charter also goes from sounding like Apu, to sounding like a character from the West Indies or Africa. I almost couldn't get through the audiobook because of this, but I'm really glad I did!
Saw The Martian when it came out in theaters and loved it. Now we all know that the books are way better than the movies. This book is no exception! Loved it from start to finish!
When well over 100,000 people have already given a book a 4.8 rating, it's not too surprising that it's an excellent book.
Smart, fresh, funny, quickly-paced. The story is very engaging, and the narration is superb! R.C. Bray is perfect for this book.
