The Martian

Reviews

The best book I’ve read in ages. Clear your schedule before you crack the seal. This story will take your breath away faster than a hull breech. Smart, funny, and white-knuckle intense, The Martian is everything you want from a novel.
– New York Times bestselling author of Wool

Think Apollo 13 … on Mars! … A saga of courage, ingenuity and humour – and utterly convincing thanks to superb research. The best space disaster story since Clarke’s A Fall of Moondust.

The amount of research here is astounding. We’re suckers for well-grounded fiction, and on the technical side, The Martian is exemplary … witty … funny

A book I just couldn’t put down! It has the very rare combination of a good, original story, interestingly real characters and fascinating technical accuracy…reads like MacGyver meets Mysterious Island.

The Martian kicked my ass! Weir has crafted a relentlessly entertaining and inventive survival thriller, a MacGyver-trapped-on-Mars tale that feels just as real and harrowing as the true story of Apollo 13.
– New York Times bestselling author of Ready Player One

One of the best thrillers I’ve read in a long time, an incredible story about an astronaut marooned on Mars. This is no science fiction tale: the technology is beautifully researched and based on what is currently envisioned for a manned flight to Mars. It feels so real it could almost be nonfiction, and yet it has the narrative drive and power of a rocket launch. This is Apollo 13 times ten. I could not put this book down.
