The Martian

Every podcast I listen to was recommending this, so I picked up the audiobook a couple of months ago. It took me until a couple of weeks ago to actually start listening to it though, and what a shame I didn’t start listening to it earlier. This is a great book, and an especially well read audiobook.

I was concerned (knowing nothing about it going in) that it was going to diverge into some serious alien bullshit sci-fi, so I was pleasantly surprised to discover how it was actually the complete opposite, and was instead a distinctly human story. It is closer to Apollo 13 than Independence Day.

Highly recommended, and I look forward to the upcoming movie adaptation. It certainly plays out like one, although it is going to be a challenge to distill all the real science down to a two-hour cinema experience.

Cocky? Sure. Hilarious? Absolutely.
