Prepare yourselves because this is going to be a review with nothing but praise. I know this book has been spoken about to death and, at first, I was skeptical as to whether I will like it or not. However, I am glad to say that it is an incredible book! Full of sass and entertainment and SCIENCE! God, this was just a great read!
Weir is a genius! No, really! The way he came up with some plot points just blew me away. The story was mind-blowing! His writing so engaging! And his main character, Mark Watney, a bloody hoot to follow! There are not many books that can actually make me laugh but this one did and for that, it is now one of my new favorites.
I can't say anymore than to just read this book. If you love sci-fi, read it. If you love science in general, read it. Love action? Read it. Wonderfully amazing, hilarious characters? Read it! It's such a great book and if you like any of the previously mentioned items, then you are bound to love this book.
Now, to see if the movie holds up.
Have a good one, guys!
