My Reading List

The Martian

This is a mid book review. I have not finished this book.

 

What I’m reading: The Martian by Andy Weir

Thoughts: I am about halfway done reading this book and so far I love it. It does have those points where it gets way too scientific for me to follow but Watney is the comic relief. His personality is one that is able to endure situations that I would have given up in.

Favorite Part. So far my favorite part is when the Hab exploded….you can read about it if you’d like.

Will I finish this book? Definitely. I hope to finish it before the week is out. I am so excited to see how Watney makes out in this book. I really hope they make it to him in time. I don’t think I could stomach him dying all alone on Mars.

 

COMPLETED: 

So I finished the book.

It was ok, not disappointing. I do feel as if he rushed the ending though, not sure if that was to give the effect of the time crunch. I would not re read the book and having finished it, I probably wouldn’t recommend it.  The ending is very predictable.  I do wish he would have went more into the homecoming, or maybe the trip back.  I suspect there will be a part two.
