The Martian Book Review by Jorge Olson
The Martian is a science fiction book written by Andy Weir about a NASA astronaut that gets stranded on Mars. He needs to figure out how to survive. How to get or make food and water, and maybe dream of surviving. Our protagonist, Mark the astronaut, has no communication with Earth and NASA doesn’t even know he’s on alive, all alone in Mars.
The book is very entertaining, funny and witty. Mark, the protagonist, is very intelligent but corky. He takes us through his experiences showing us what he’s doing to survive and not go crazy every single day of his unplanned Martian vacation. The book is 387 pages, the audio book is 11 hours and very well produced.
