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 forces his crew to evacuate the planet while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded on Mars's surface, with no way to signal Earth that he's alive. And even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone years before a rescue could arrive.

Chances are, though, Mark won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plain old "human error" are much more likely to kill him first.

Armed with nothing but his ingenuity, his engineering skills - and a gallows sense of humor that proves to be his greatest source of strength - Mark embarks on a dogged quest to stay alive. But will his resourceful be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him?

3.0 The Martian
Unfortunately a disappointment, though I loved the movie. The book felt like a badly done mystery book: Mark encounters a problem, how will Mark solve it? By bringing up a property of his equipment that was never mentioned before. While it's obviously not realistic to expect the author to go through...

3.5 Энди Вейер. Марсианин.
Что я могу сказать о «Марсианине» по прошествии трех прекрасных вечеров в его компании? Мне понравилось. Что меня беспокоит? Мне не должно было понравится. Для начала о сюжете, если кто-то пропустил экранизацию Ридли Скотта. «Марсианин» рассказывает историю Марка Уотни, американского астронавта ми...

3.0 Review of the Martian by Andy Weir
This is one of those very rare times where I enjoyed the movie more than the book. That might not be fair considering that I saw the movie first, but I thought the movie truly brought to life the size and scope of the book. In addition, I thought the movie gave more personality to the characters t...

4.0 A Joyful Romp on the Solar System's Rustiest Planet
Andy Weir's 2014 science fiction novel apparently had its film rights sold before it was ever formally published. It became an Oscar-nominated Ridley Scott flick, racking in, among other things, hundreds of millions in gross and Matt FUCKING Damon. (In the spirit of the novel, I've decided to tempor...
