Aww, you didn't like it? I didn't expect to enjoy it as much as I did.

Your post makes me sad. :(

I'm not a fan of hard SF, so what this book did for me was make that hard science accessible and understandable, (mostly), without boring me out of my mind.

I agree that the writing is not Shakespeare, or even Shirley Jackson. However, it did cause me to grow VERY fond of Mark Watney. Since I was only looking to be entertained when I read the book, it worked out fine for me, though I can see where you're coming from. Perhaps if I were an engineer, I would feel differently about this novel.

That's the beauty of Literature. There's always something to like and to take out of it. I did. You did. That's enough in my "book".
