From page one, hell from the first line, I was pretty much hooked on The Martian. It lived up to it’s hype. A marooned story — like Castaway or 127 Hours — only here I genuinely liked the character. I didn’t think he was an idiot. You root for him because he MacGyver’s billions of dollars of tech to survive. Or as he puts it, “I’m gonna science the shit out of this planet.” Easily one of my favorite — if not THE FAVORITE — books I’ve read this year. I’m excited for the film, as long as it’s R. Mark Watney’s swearing is part of the charm, like when Buzz Aldrin punched that conspira-douchenozzle right the fuck out.
