Another book review from me – The Martian by Andy Weir, which is a major film, too.
This book was about a man called Mark Watney, who is stranded on Mars, not like your standard Robinso Cruzo on a desert island. His Ares 4 crew accidently left him on Mars and now everyone on planet Earth thinks he is dead. With no communication with Earth how will Mark Watney survive? However, Mark is a clever guy, he plants some potatoes using “Martian” soil. No one has ever used Martian soil to grow anything, let alone vegetables from the Earth. Well, almost like Mr Cruzo…
Meanwhile, on the Earth a girl, working for NASA too, hasn’t lost hope that Watney is alive and she is doing her best to find him.
Mark’s journal entries depict his life and challenges on Mars – you feel like reading someone’s diary, while the events on the Earth are narrated by the author. I’ve found this way of writing quite enjoyable and each chapter, whether a diary entry or not, was leaving me on a cliffhanger and I wanted to read faster and faster to get to the next stage of this amazing journey.
This book was full of drama and kept me asking myself questions throughout.
Definetly recommend this book and I will give this book a 8/10!
I will try to get the DVD and watch the film, too.
And for now Au Revoir!
