The Martian is mainly in the point of view of Mark Watney. He’s stuck on Mars thought to be dead and he chooses to fight for life until the end. With his morbid humor and engineering smarts he takes to overcoming obstacles continues to try to make it self-sustaining.
The book has pretty intense language so for people who don’t like strong language I would avoid it. But anyone looking for a laugh or a little sci-fi it’s the perfect book.
I loved the book and what kept me going was the tone of Mark. Especially coming from one person, I can’t imagine how difficult it would be to keep the story going and not put everyone to sleep. His character is so wild and unpredictable so you can’t help but read on to see what he does next. And his humor is my kind of humor so it’s amazing.
