    I?m pretty much fucked. Ok, show of hands. How many of you have uttered these exact words? (or words to that effect). Not everyone? I see we have some liars out there. How many have said them at least twice? Three times? Four? Those with hands still up, you probably need to make som...

    I have never wanted so badly for the characters in a book to be real. I want to meet them all the way I want to meet the president, or Taylor Swift. This story is perfectly told. It is perfectly paced, it is brilliantly written, it is beautifully crafted. Andy Weir does this incr...

    ?So that is the situation. I?m stranded on Mars. I have no way to communicate with Hermes or Earth. Everyone thinks I?m dead. I?m in a Hab designed to last thirty-one days. If the oxygenator breaks down, I?ll suffocate. If the water reclaimer breaks down, I?ll die ...

    This book was fantastic! A thrilling survival story with a hearty dose of humor. The main character Mark was such a smartass and I LOVED IT. The voice and the premise hooked me in right away and kept me thoroughly engaged the whole time. My only real issues were that some of the minor ...

    I'm so happy that I randomly decided to pick this book up! I did find that the story dragged a bit towards the end and some of things went over my head a little bit, but for the most part this was a fantastic read! ...

    Adult science thriller. Love it, love it! A meticulously researched, briskly paced and surprisingly funny story about an astronaut left behind on Mars, presumed dead, who must now figure out how to survive and let the folks back on Earth know he is alive and needs rescue. This is h...
