Survival of the Creative
I first read this book on my Kindle and immediately recommended it to my husband and son, who are an engineer and a scientist respectively. I have always loved science fiction, especially what is now called "hard science fiction," as opposed to fantasy-type fiction. I think even those who may not read much sci-fi will enjoy this book, because it is an incredible story of how the main character uses every bit of his knowledge, ingenuity, and creativity to survive when he is marooned on Mars. Each time he seems to have solved the latest problem, another one comes along. You can't help but wonder what you would do in a similar situation! If you enjoy reading about extreme adventures and overcoming danger, read this book!
I read The Martian quite awhile ago, as a free Kindle book, and I was simultaneously riveted and blown away by this book.
The story is so unique, the POV is really readable, the science is "interesting" and the whole package is definitely worth your time.
I would recommend this to anyone who likes Jack McDevitt (Moonfall, The Alex Benedict books, etc).
The Martian will make you laugh, cry and be incredulous all in one read. I loved it.
