Having seen the film some time ago, I knew what to expect going in. I downloaded the book to listen to during my 11 hour layover in Madrid. I started listening to it early, and couldn't stop. R. C. Bray's narration breathes such life in to Andy Weir's Watney. His timing and expression was on point from beginning to end. I cannot recommend this book enough. If you like survival stories, space stories, or a bunch of jokes about NASA nerds this is the book for you.
I so enjoyed this. The reader was fabulous and had me from Chapter One! Highly recommend. Will watch movie soon. I always like to read/listen to the book first.
not necessarily but the audio edition worked great for my lifestyle
the sci-fi creativity
I couldnt wait to find out what happens next
This was one of my favorite books of 2015 and I loved listening to it even more. The narrator was engaging and not annoying. The different accents for the characters, especially the ones from India and China, were a bit much. Overall, I recommend this however has a hilarious and engaging listen. Great for car rides and long trips.
Narrator had good timing.
I couldn't stop laughing.
I had wanted my husband to read the Martian but he's resistant to reading fiction. I started listening to this one night while doing the dishes and he became very interested. We listened to the entire book while driving on our family vacation.
