Pot Boiler that offers nothing new. Usual cast of characters, grizzled old timer, snotty boy wonder, geek-turned-hero, resourceful nice guy. An OK listen, nothing more.

Good book. Has its moments.

Good story, but I struggled with the philosophies of Theo and Boris - a bit too much from youngsters.

Good low key follow-up to Summer of Night.

Interesting, if not particularly scary story, well paced with an excellent perfomance by Bronson Pinchot.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Martian to be better than the print version?

N/A

Who was your favorite character and why?

Watney, with his indomitable spirit and sense of humour.

What does R. C. Bray bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

The inflections in his voice made Watney's thoughts and emotions very real.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

"Survive ... "

Any additional comments?

Great book, fabulous reader.
