Book Review: The Martian, by Andy Weir

It doesn’t matter whether you’re a sci-fi fan or not to enjoy reading this outstanding descriptive novel of what it’s like to be abandoned on Mars.  Can’t wait for the movie!
Finished! Wow! Talk about a book that gets you into the mind of the ‘nerd’ who becomes and astronaut!<br><br>As a guy who in the 60’s wanted to be a flyer and astronaut, but who found out that good eyesight was a key and 20/200 doesn’t cut it, I found my niche close up with bugs. This guy, Andy Weir, really knows his stuff about Mars and the astronaut world. <br><br>Now back to the Botanist. You can almost smell the inside of the ‘Hab’ after he plows in the night soil and spreads everything out all over the place to grow potatoes. You can feel the reek of 20+ day is the ‘rover’. Yeah, how a simple straightforward descriptive book can take you inside the mind and workings of an abandoned astronaut is great! I even checked out some of the math to make sure Andy Weir wasn’t just throwing numbers around with Mark Watney. Clever solutions to problems that would only come up in space or on Mars and clever working together of the whole plot. <br><br>I can’t wait for the movie to come out. It will be hard to pull off something as good as this book on the big screen.  <br>
