Enjoyed every minute. I listened to this after seeing the movie which during the first few hours was difficult to slow my own imagination to take over. This was so much more in depth than the movie and really a much better story. Recommend to anyone.
Really enjoyed the story. Besides that the book was well written it was really well narrated. The characters really came to life for me as I listened and I enjoyed the story even more than I expected. I'm not a big "science" person so it started a little slow for me because of the level of detail, but all of sudden I was hooked! If you are like me, Just hang on through the first few chapters...it's worth it!

Mark's humorous one-liners and a good narrator were not enough to save this overly technical 10-hour monstrosity.
Weir is a master storyteller and Bray sets the bar on oration. If you are even thinking about listening to this, wait no longer. The ride to Mars is thrilling.
language was a bit extreme for what was such a highly educated individual, even in such extreme conditions. One should assume Mark was fully capable of expressing himself in a more civilized manor even under such stress, with an understandable fit of profanity from time to time, but not as often and as cavalier as the character did...
Still loved it for the technical in depth explanation of things.
