The Martian Andy Weir 2014-08-20 2014-08-24 ***1/2
2014-08-22: Good stuff, very amusing. I’m not sure I buy Mark’s total casualness about his situation.
2014-08-25: Quite good. I both liked and disliked the bits where the author switched to the omniscient to tell us why something was about to go wrong. The info on why it was going wrong was nice but it felt kind of heavy handed and it didn’t quite fit the first person narrative of everything else.
