I’m giving this 5 stars because I think it’s likely a 5 star book for a very narrow set of people who need it, the people to whom it was targeted. If you have no interest in mountains of Government Bureaucratic paperwork, then this will be only sligh ...more

The Martian by Andy Weir
The Martian
I’ll be honest here – I wrote THE MARTIAN with the idea that it would appeal to a teeny, tiny niche of hardcore science dorks. I had no idea it would gain mainstream appeal.
