    At first, only a few things are known about the celestial object that astronomers dub Rama. It is huge, weighing more than ten trillion tons. And it is hurtling through the solar system at inconceivable speed. Then a space probe confirms the unthinkable: Rama is no natural object. It is, incredibly, an interstellar spacecraft. Space explorers and planet-bound scientists alike prepare for mankind's first encounter with alien intelligence.

    Peter Tersteeg says: "Excellent story, terrible naration"

    If you could sum up Rendezvous with Rama in three words, what would they be?

    Awards well deserved


    How could the performance have been better?

    My only objection to this product. The naration was completely monotone and droll. Different accents were well utlised for the characters, but the naration was simply not worth of the novel.

    This book contains foul language and fouler descriptions of life as a zombie. It will offend most anyone, so proceed with caution or not at all. And be forewarned: This is not a zombie book. This is a different sort of tale. It is a story about the unfortunate, about those who did not get away. It is a human story at its rotten heart. It is the reason we can't stop obsessing about these creatures, in whom we see all too much of ourselves.

    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    Excellent variety by the narrators, they all did an excellent job.


    Any additional comments?

    This book made me feel kind of sick, which I think was the intention. It goes a long way to describing the different mental results of the characters as they're taken along for the ride as a zombie prisoner.
    I was especially creeped out by the older woman who enjoyed being a zombie because she was no longer frail.

    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?"

    Brian says: "Duct tape is magic and should be worshiped"
    "One of the most enjoyable books I've listened too."

    Where does The Martian rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Definitely one of the best books I've listened too. The story is excellent and the performance is delivered exceptionally well. I enjoyed it from start to finish.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It's a constant struggle for survival, but with humorous observations along the way to keep it light.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    If I had the time, I'd listen to this non stop. I'll definitely go back and listen to it again.
