Description

2015 Audie Award WINNER, Science Fiction
2015 Audie Award Finalist, Solo Narration: Male
2014 Voice Arts Award Finalist, Science Fiction

"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?"

    "Big thanks to SmarterEveryDay for recommending it"

    Like Destin points out, more science than in the movie, also more suspenseful scenes. Could've been a 2 parts movie to my mind.

    "What's all the hype about?"

    There are moments of suspense in this novel but that is certainly not enough to make it worthwhile reading.

    This work’s shortcomings are momentous:

    • the characters are stereotyped and shallow, including the castaway who seems completely asocial, having apparently left behind on Earth only unnamed parents and no lover, siblings or friends;
    • the plot is eminently predictable and completely implausible, in short comic book material;
    • the story is set in an non-specified future where technologies have progressed little with respect to present times;
    • the writing is poor with narration skipping haphazardly back and forth from the castaway’s written log, to his audio log to an omniscient narrator;
    • throughout, the text is pointlessly marked with profanity.

    Overall, it appears best to invest time and money elsewhere.

    "un superbe lecteur"

    plus un acteur qu'un lecteur, R. C. Bray interprète formidablement le livre et nous tient en haleine même pendant les complexes calculs scientifiques du héros. Un vrai plaisir d'écoute.
