Weir states, I started writing fiction and just putting it up on my website. The Martian was posted in serial format for free for people to read. Its popularity mostrar mais prompted Weir to self-publish a Kindle version on Amazon in 2012. The Martian rocketed to the top of Amazon's online bestseller charts soon after its release. Random House publishers soon heard of The Martian's success, spurring a book deal. This title won the Adult Debut Prize in the Indie Choice Book Awards 2015, the same year that it became listed on the New York Times bestseller list. He was also awarded The John W.

Críticas

This was a quick and easy read, mostly because my mind skipped merrily over most of the figures and calculations and went for the narrative and psychology. Several laugh out loud moments. This might be my go-to reread if I want something spacey and don't quite have the spoons for the whole Mars Trilogy (Kim Stanley Robinson).

Cool story, too much science for my humanities brain to handle. Also, I've never loved an alien more.

I'd really love to give this book 4 or maybe even 5 starts. The storytelling was just as good, if not better than, The Martian. Andy Weir's grasp on the first person perspective is immaculate and he really puts you into the story. This book was filled with all of the technical research that I loved in The Martian and all of the problems and setbacks that make for a page turner.

So why the three stars? Simple... language/offense. I cannot in good conscience give a book more than three stars that takes the Lord's name in vain on every other page. It really is ridiculous and grated on my nerves. Call me prudish if you will, but I'm a Christian and that language is offensive to me. For that reason, I would also have a hard time recommending this book to anyone.… (mais)
