Review: The Martian

Chronicles of Tania

The Martian
The Martian by Andy Weir
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The book was recommended to me by a SciFi fan and I’m not generally a SciFi reader, so take this review with a pinch of salt. The science sections got too detailed and boring for me which distracted away from the story of this astronaut left behind on Mars by his team and what he had to do to survive till he was rescued. It takes 4 years to travel between Earth and Mars, so the poor guy had a long wait and a panic to figure out how to produce enough oxygen, water, grow food etc. to survive.
This book started off slow, with toilet/adolescent humour and in diary/log format which put me off. After about a third, you start to get dialogue, the story picks up pace and gets interesting.
SciFi fans and boys will love this…
