Great audio performance of a great story. Great blend of believable technical detail and drama! Definitely exceeded my expectations. Thanks @audible_com!
I can't begin to say how great this book is. One tiny nit pick. the fact that there are two female crewmen is eschewed by a lack of voice variation by the narrator. However also that both female crewmen have names that start with "J". However narrator, with other female characters as well, seems to do the same voice.
This is merely a note to the listener, because to change anything about it would risk violating perfection. Get the damn book, but keep that note in mind.
The narrator is really good and brings the book to life I haven't read the print version but the audio version is definitely up to standard!
The hilarious one liners the main character makes when facing impending death.
Mark is basically the only charter for 80% so I guess mark .
One word . Hilarious.
Buy you won't regret it I sure didn't I listen to this book in three days !!
What a great book! Suspense, humor, and great characters. I highly recommend it. I loved the main character's creative problem solving and dry wit. I am looking forward to future books by Andy Weir.
I first heard about this book on the Still Untitled Podcast with Adam Savage. I'm glad I gave it a listen. It mixes science and comedy in to something everyone can enjoy. The quips Mark, the main character, make are spot on. Should you listen to this? Yeah.
This was a fantastic story, balanced with drama and humor, and an amazing tale of human ingenuity. The narrator was absolutely perfect—possibly the best narration I've ever heard. It was a perfect pairing of story and presentation. This may be my new favorite book!
I was glued to the story the entire time. Mars found as many ways to hinder Mark, his survival, and rescue at every stage. Every moment was baited with tension, science, and sarcasm. This is an absolutely fantastic book.
