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.

It takes a second for you to get into the mindset of a mechanical engineer, but once you do this story comes to life. This will have you gritting your teeth and sitting on the edge of your seat for the entire book. I'm still in shock. Astronauts rock!

What would have made World War Z: The Complete Edition (Movie Tie-in Edition) better?

Great Book. However there is missing audio in Chapter 3 and it is very important. I e-mailed customer support and this is what they replied to me.

Dear John,

Thank you for contacting Audible. My name is Nickiesha and I’m happy to help.

I am so sorry to hear that some of the audio file is missing from your book "World War Z". I understand how disappointing this must be and I will be happy to help you with this.

Having checked with my content team, they are aware of the issue and are working diligently to have the issue resolved as quickly as possible. Never the less, I have escalated this to the Audio Bug Department to be corrected. We will continue to monitor its status. Depending on the extent of the audio problem, we may be able to resolve this issue internally within about 2 weeks. If we have to request a new copy of the title, this may extend the time until it is resolved.

In the mean time, if you prefer not to wait until the file is repaired, please let us know and we can remove the book from your library and issue you a full refund.

We appreciate your patience and will contact you via email as soon as we have additional information regarding the problem with this title.

If there is anything else that I may assist with please let me know. Once again thanks for contacting Audible and have a great day!

Sincerely,
Nickiesha W


Hopefully they ARE working on it, and we won't have to wait long. Until then everyone should wait to buy it.
