When I was composing a list of top 5 books set in space for Bionic Bookworm Top 5 Tuesday, I realised I had only read one. Lots of other people had the Martian on the list, so that inspired me to read and it turned out I had a friend with a copy.
I got to the end! More than that towards the end I was eager to find out what would happen to the lead character, so I it had hooked me. There is a lot of technical detail, which did not really compute but, created an ambience and could still float through.
For several chapters there was just the lead character and I think other characters were introduced at just the right time or otherwise may have become bored.
I would not rule out reading something similar and would actually quite like a sequele…SPOILER ALERT 🚨…..
I want to know what happened when he was rescued by his crew and their journey back to Earth and beyond!
