THE MARTIAN by Andy Weir

Combine APOLLO 13 with the MACGYVER T.V. Series. Add liberal doses of humor to help the dry, cold martian terrain go down. Mix well.

THE MARTIAN is one of the best Science Fiction books I've had the pleasure of reading in a good long time. Hard science fiction, at that, which usually doesn't hold my interest for very long.

It's refreshing. The only agendas this book has is to A) Entertain you and B) Demonstrate that daring the impossible, odds be damned, is itself a worthy thing. If I took away any theme from the book, its that nothing worthwhile happens without risk. And we've become far too risk averse for our own good.

Highly Recommeded.

My how time flies...

It seems like just yesterday that I was posting on my love of the Guardians of the Galaxy movie. Then family crises and real world drama struck. I don't know how the big bloggers do it.

Anyway, I'm still here and still plugging away on my fiction. I hope to have some book and movie reviews up soon.
