Review – The Martian by Andy Weir
I’m starting out by saying that I won’t be giving this one a star rating because I’m not sure what to rate it.
I listened to the audio of this one with my husband. We listened while we went on our nightly walks. He loved it. He gave theaudio 5 stars in all three categories (overall, performance, story).
During our walks, I would look at him and say, “Where’s the romance?”
And his response was, “Why does it need romance?”
IT JUST DOES! I like my books to have a small aspect of romance…it gives me hope for humanity.
While listening to this I kept thinking could I survive IF I WAS LEFT BEHIND ON MARS.
Now that I’m done with the book I know that my chances of survival on Mars are ZERO. I don’t think I would have made it one day. If perchance I did live past the first day I’m pretty sure I’d do something stupid that would lead to my demise.
One of my husband’s pet peeves with me is when I read a book and then see the movie because I spend the whole time saying,“That’s not how it happened.” I’m looking forward to seeing this movie with my husband… I’m hoping he does that throughout this movie so he can no longer tease me about doing it.
Thank you, Christy, for gifting me this book. I love that we got to read it with our husbands. And thank you, Kara, for pushing me to read it. 🙂
