    Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive—and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plain old "human error" are much more likely to kill him first. But Mark isn't ready to give up yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills—and a relentless, dogged refusal to quit—he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next. Will his resourcefulness be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him?"

    Would you try another book from Andy Weir and/or R. C. Bray?

    Not really, the write-up wasn't really engaging


    Has The Martian turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Nope - I think it's much the writing style that wasn't all that good


    Do you think The Martian needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Maybe not a follow-up book but it could easily be abbreviated to a short story.

    This classic tale is a fantastical fable of two dear friends - one of whom goes astray and is literally lost to the north woods, while the other undertakes an epic journey to rescue him. This charming, strange, and wonderful story is a timeless allegory about growing up and the challenges of staying true to one's self, and it served as the wintry inspiration for the blockbuster hit Frozen.

    What made the experience of listening to The Snow Queen the most enjoyable?

    I understand this performance was handed out as a free gift but the reader could still have researched quickly how to pronounce the names in the story. Especially annoying was that she decided to read Kai's name as "K" - much like if she'd read any of Franz Kafka's stories where he'd call himself by his initial ... Depressing performance of an otherwise brilliant story

    In this remarkable dual memoir, film legend Martin Sheen and accomplished actor/filmmaker Emilio Estevez recount their lives as father and son. In alternating chapters—and in voices that are as eloquent as they are different—they narrate stories spanning more than 50 years of family history, and reflect on their journeys into two different kinds of faith.

    Step inside this captivating account of Paulo Coehlo's pilgrimage along the road to Santiago. This fascinating parable explores the need to find one's own path. In the end, we discover that the extraordinary is always found in the ordinary and simple ways of everyday people. Part adventure story, part guide to self-discovery, this compelling tale delivers the perfect combination of enchantment and insight.

    I never felt like reading any of Coelho's books since I'm not very "spiritual", but I finally went ahead and listened to this one and at first was just a tiny bit annoying, but it grew on me and till the end I was really captivated by the story and loved the narrative and everything
