"One of the best thrillers I've read in a long time. It feels so real it could almost be nonfiction, and yet it has the narrative drive and power of a rocket launch. This is Apollo 13 times ten." -Douglas Preston, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Impact and Blasphemy
"A book I just couldn't put down! It has the very rare combination of a good, original story, interestingly real characters and fascinating technical accuracy…reads like MacGyver meets Mysterious Island." -Astronaut Chris Hadfield, Commander of the International Space Station and author of An Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth
"The best book I've read in ages. Clear your schedule before you crack the seal. This story will take your breath away faster than a hull breech. Smart, funny, and whiteknuckle intense, The Martian is everything you want from a novel." -Hugh Howey, New York Times bestselling author of Wool
"The Martian kicked my ass! Weir has crafted a relentlessly entertaining and inventive survival thriller, a MacGyver trappedon Mars tale that feels just as real and harrowing as the true story of Apollo 13." -Ernest Cline, New York Times bestselling author of Ready Player One
"Gripping…shapes up like Defoe's Robinson Crusoe as written by someone brighter." -Larry Niven, multiple Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author of the Ringworld series and Lucifer's Hammer
"The tension simply never lets up, from the first page to the last, and at no point does the believability falter for even a second. You can't shake the feeling that this could all really happen." -Patrick Lee, New York Times bestselling author of The Breach and Ghost Country
"Strong, resilent, and gutsy. It's Robinson Crusoe on Mars, 21st century style. Set aside a chunk of free time when you start this one. You're going to need it because you won't want to put it down." -Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author of The King's Deception and The Columbus Affair
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.
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?"
Although this reader felt bogged down in all of scientific and technical aspects of the story, the narration and story made listening enjoyable. A very scientifically complex plot is superseded by the humor and drama of the main story line. Highly recommended.
seriously why haven't you gotten this book yet?!
fantastic storyline worded incredibly well narration couldn't be any better
La hiatoria fue mut bien llevada y sobre todo los detalles en todos los elementos técnicos son muy buenos.
Both the story and narration were excellent. The only thing keeping it from getting five stars is the excessive profanity. It was crazy excessive. But truly a great story.
Great book, a bit geeky at times with lots of math being read, but that is about the only negative.
loved the narrator. He made it seem like he really was the main character. great voices without being overboard. story was on point. only wish there hadn't been so much swearing. but if I was stuck on Mars I'd probably swear to.
I like this book and enjoyed it. It is different to lessen to the book than watching a movie.
We really enjoyed it. All except a plethora of the f word and taking the Lord's name in vain.
The narrator was AMAZING! I absolutely loved this! Would highly recommend for long road trips.
awesome book with a great story and great narration. one of the best books I have ever heard.
Really enjoyed this. Had to get this after watching the film. Be warned that there is a lot of science in this which occasionally led to me zoning out. Still a great listen.
This isn't usually my kind of book, but I went with it because I want to watch the movie and I like to read the book first. So glad I did! The narrator is fantastic, and made me reluctant to switch off when I had to. The story itself is fast paced, funny and at times terrifying. Thoroughly enjoyed every moment.
I enjoyed the story from beginning to the end. I could not wait to find out what was going to happen next.
The story was told well and I really cared what was going to happen to Watney.
If this did happen, you could imagine this going down as written with the whole world 24:7 news bringing us stores of Marks pearls and progress
Highly recommend this book.
awesome, listen to this, don't bother with the film
words words words need to make up the limit
A fantastic story, great narration and voice acting, makes for a perfect audiobook really. looking forward to the film now!
This isn't my normal genre, but from the minute it started I couldn't stop listening - really gripping funny and emotional - highly recommended
Great story, well read and extremely funny but don't listen around younger family members as the language is pretty explicit
I'm now having the realisation that I may never read or listen to book that is better than this. Simply brilliant. The movie was awesome, but this audio book was way better :-)
