Kerry McGrath had only begun to work in the county prosecutor's office at the time of the infamous "Sweetheart Murder Case" - the bizarre slaying years ago of strikingly beautiful Suzanne Reardon. Now, 10 years later, Kerry has gained a reputation as a smart and relentless prosecutor - so much so that her name has been given to the governor as a candidate for a new judgeship - and her new life and career are in full swing.

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 plainold "human error" are much more likely to kill him first.

Great book! I was afraid I wouldn't like it because it isn't the type of book I would normally read.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This is a great book and is a really great book if you have a child with asperger's or even know someone who has the syndrome. I have a daughter that has asbergers but was misdiagnosed until adulthood. Some of the drugs they gave her growing up helped but we always knew that things were not right and so did she. As a young adult she began drinking a lot and became very depressed and was admitted to a psychiatric hospital where she was referred to a Dr. who had aspergers and also diagnosed her with it. She got her the treatment that she had needed to finally really start to get better. Since it is primarily a communication disorder, he did therapy with her twice a week for at least a year to teach her how to communicate. Her whole life changed as did our family's. As a family, my husband and I, her three sisters and her, all began a process of healing and building relationships with one another and getting to know the daughter and sister that we had never known. What a joy that has been. She has continued to work hard and met the man that she is now married to, while chatting on-line with him and they now have two beautiful children and live in Canada.

What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Everything, because I am auditory. I don't really read books unless I have to. I really just try to get books that I can listen to and I know that I remember a lot more of the story than I would if I read the book.

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

No, it was very good but I felt ok about taking breaks and coming back to it.

Any additional comments?

I suppose the point of a book it the suprises you get when reading it however I was a little bummed about the ending in that it really was an accident and not the boyfriend because then I was uncomfortable with the fact that she maybe would have lived if he had not just ran away and I also felt it ended a little abruptly. I have never really been able to even imagine what it is like inside the brain of someone with Aspergers. How they think and how they feel or I guess sometime I wondered if people with Asperger did feel. As I listened to this book I felt like I knew better than I ever could have known finally what is was like for my older sister that had aspergers but was never diagnosed and my daughter. This book and the way it was narrated helped me more that you will ever know.
