‘The Martian’ by Andy Weir

‘MacGyver, Stranded On Mars’
Score: 5/5

Andy Weir

If you liked the technical stuff in Exo, you’ll love this.

Someone described it as making an entire book of the intense scenes in Apollo 13, where NASA were trying to figure out how to power up the Command Module. Or a book length episode of MacGyver.

That’s all true, but it doesn’t really cover how well the central character is drawn. His sense of humour really does come through.

The movie is now showing here but I haven’t seen it yet. I wonder how well the book will translate to a movie. I hope it does the book justice.
