Hello! Welcome to my little corner of the universe. Join me as I make my way through my infinite reading list one page at a time.
The Martian by Andy Weir has Hollywood summer blockbuster written all over it. It features a fascinating extraterrestrial setting and one of the most engaging main characters I've encountered in a good while. Astronaut Mark Watney is brilliant, funny, extremely clever, calm and cool in the face of danger...he's MacGyver on Mars. When a dust storm disrupts the first Martian mission and forces his crew to leave him behind on the surface of Mars, he must find a way to survive against seemingly impossible odds. The Martian is chock-full of science, space, suspense, and survival, and I loved every word.
