The Martian - Thanks!

I just wanted to thank you all for recommending The Martian a few years ago. Based partly on your good reviews (coming from a diverse group) I chose it for a book club book. We haven't even met yet and two poeple have said they never would have chosen it but really liked it. I love when we get a surprise hit like that. So, Thanks! :)

I don't know if mine was among those recommendations, but I'm glad your book-group folk are enjoying it - it was one of my top reads of the year when I first read it (and listened to it; the audiobook version is AWESOME!).

Update: forgot to add a link to one of the copies I've released ( https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14630213/ ); that makes six so far {wry grin}.

I think you probably were one of the influences Gory, I remember now when you said you loved it, and I trust your book reviews! :)

the audiobook version is AWESOME!).

I absolutely second this: the audio version rocked.

Glad you are getting good feedback. Andy Weir has a new book out: Artemis which is billed as a heist story set on the moon. Sounds intriguing.

I just read a teaser chapter in The Martian. I had no idea it was a heist story but it was indeed intriguing.

I stumbled across The Martian in the bookshelf at work last year, and had a look at the first pages. Hadn't really thought of reading it before, but after starting to read it, I simply had to read the entire book!

The Martian

Based on this thread I finally listened to The Martian on CD that has been gathering dust on my shelf for a loooong time. I am so glad I did! It isn't something I would normally think to be interested in, but it was great!
