R.M. and 1827 other people liked Davy-Gravy's review of The Martian:
The Martian by Andy Weir

Bill Bryson
“Woods are not like other spaces. To begin with, they are cubic. Their trees surround you, loom over you, press in from all sides. Woods choke off views & leave you muddled & without bearings. They make you feel small & confused & vulnerable, like a small child lost in a crowd of strange legs. Stand in a desert or prairie & you know you are in a big space. Stand in the woods and you only sense it. They are vast, featureless nowhere. And they are alive.”
Bill Bryson, A Walk in the Woods
