Andy Weir - Martian



Andy Weir does not disappoint with his realistic sci-fi. I’ve read Project Hail Mary and I’ve seen the movie before listening to this book. My expectations were high, and Martian met them but not surpassed them.

When you read this book, you’ll witness a sci-fi adventure in the near future. Humanity sends its third mission to Mars, and you get to follow a birlliant and resourceful botanist through an epic failure and struggle for survival. Every part of the story is believable and supported by current science.

Side note: I couldn’t get the image of Matt Damon out of my head because he played the main character in the movie. That’s why I prefer to read the book first and watch the movie later.

If you haven’t read Project Hail Mary yet, start with that. If you love it as much as I did, you’ll enjoy Martian too.
