I discipline my body and make it my slave so that after all this, after I have brought the gospel to others, I will still be qualified to win the prize.

The Martian by Andy Weir

September 29, 2014 Leave a comment

I’d heard the recommendations and read the reviews, but I still wasn’t sure.

How interesting could a survival story set on Mars be?

Mr. Weir creates a compelling and fascinating narrative. Mark Watney is knocked out during a sudden storm, and his crewmates leave him for dead.

However, he is not dead, just unconscious.

The story outlines the drama which unfolds over the next year-and-a-half.

Parts of the story get quite technical. This is hard science fiction, well-researched and plausible.

I recommend this book to anyone else who think this sounds like an original and engaging story.
