Once Mark is abandoned in the godforsaken planet, it is a relentless series of life threatening problems thrown at him one after another, right till the end. But with his resourcefulness, intelligence and willpower to survive he finds some or the other solution to each of those situations.
One thing I would have liked is a better character development of Mark. Given his strong personality type, some background of Mark's earlier life, some personal stories would have been better for the readers to connect to his character. It would have also been a nice break from all the technicalities in the narration, which at times, I felt, was getting to a saturation.
Other than that, it is a phenomenal work of sci-fi, even better than the movie, I would say. Must read if you like science fictions or survival stories.
As far as Amazon's service is concerned, the book was delivered on time and in great condition. So full marks for that!
PS: Please hit "Yes" if you like my review.
This book have changed my perspective about life in many ways. One person is enough to change everything round. This book taught me about finding humour in the most devastating of times.
The story starts with Mark Watney being deserted on a DESERTED planet far far away from any human communication “MARS”. Yes u heard it right. He is stranded on Mars for Gods sake!!!! There were others in his team. But he can see no one around. Maybe they left him thinking he would be dead for better or for worse.
Few months back there was a mission back in N.A.S.A with five crew members pf which Watney was one. Not in any important position. Just one of the co-pilots. They landed on Mars. Upon landing they started doing whatever they had to do(Obviously that includes work and not partying :P ). Anyhow.. now on the third day of their mission N.A.S.A warns them of a sandstorm that could push them to the pits of hell (joking) .. that could destroy all the machines.. So they decide to abort their mission and return back safely before it hits them.. but during their evacuation the sand storms had already picked up its pace. They continue to move on.. Accidentally a flying dish hits him.. and…….KABOOOM!!!!!!!!!!!!
He wakes up being hurt with no one around him. GREAT -_- .
It’s a story of survival.. a story of inspiration. A story about how quick thinking and optimistic attitude can change soo much of a situation in which no one of us could think of survival. A must read!!!(if you haven’t already)..Well I won’t mind reading it again and again and again.. ok that’s too much. But I don’t care. Its that good. Mark Watney I am ready to marry a man like you :P
It's so sharp and fast paced and funny which is a tremendous feat to accomplish considering the protagnist is stranded on planet millions of miles away for almost the entire book
Mark warney might just be the most smart-assy character i have ever read!
Read this book you wont regret it
About the delivery: it was prompt!
The product: the pages are of good quality, the font is a bit small but not bothersome, the cover is a little flimsy it bends and remains that way even after a single read
But at this price its a good product!
