The Martian Audiobook by Andy Weir
The Martian Audiobook is both “serious” science fiction and part delightfully dark comedy, imagining a terrifying predicament filled with humour and the overpowering human will to survive. It’s difficult to conceive that anyone who reads this won’t be drawn into Mark’s world, anxious to know what happens to him. A well researched, fast-paced, and unexpectedly amusing narrative of an astronaut who is left behind on Mars, assumed dead, and must now find out how to survive and alert those back on Earth that he is alive and in need of rescue.
The Martian Audiobook by Andy Weir”s plot:
Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became the first person to set foot on Mars. He now believes he will be the first person to die there.
After a dust storm almost kills him and forces his crew to flee while thinking he’s dead, Mark is stuck and entirely alone, with no means to even signal Earth that he’s alive—and even if he did, his supplies would be depleted long before a rescue could reach. But, chances are, he won’t have time to starve to death. Damaged machinery, a harsh environment, or simple “human mistake” are far more likely to kill him first.
But Mark isn’t giving up just yet. […]
Astronaut Mark Watney of The Martian Audiobook is in a much worse situation than most of us have ever been in. Dude missed his ride, and there won’t be another for another four years. The supplies on hand were only designed to last a few weeks, if not months. And the Martian environment is clearly not enjoyable, missing things such as breathing air and a suitable temperature range. It does, however, provide highly severe and long-lasting dust storms. As if that weren’t enough, he also encounters a slew of other difficulties.
The narration of Mark Watney is perhaps The Martian’s greatest strength. He’s pleasant and amusing, upbeat and capable. Some might find him lacking in sharp edges, but in fact he worked rather well. The Martian Audiobook is an utter treat to read. Watney is both likable and capable, and he makes fantastic use of his sense of humor to see the bright side of life in the midst of a very sad situation.
The juxtaposition between the highly technical nature of everything Mark must do to survive – which gave me a heightened sense of appreciation for how darn brilliant astronauts have to be – and his utterly charming personality is the finest thing about The Martian Audiobook. Mark keeps his sense of humour in the face of adversity – it’s nearly impossible not to be captivated by him.
