's review

it was amazing
bookshelves: 2015, nwh-bookclub

I don't know whether to give this book 4 or 5 stars. It was pretty damn good. My only complaint is that I got kinda lost in all of the space jargon. Seriously, I felt kinda dumb because everything sounded so smart that I'm just gonna assume it's correct. Anyways, the story is filled with intense scenes with a touch of sarcastic humor. I couldn't help but root for Mark and lost some sleep because I just had to know how it was gonna end. Plus now I'm really looking forward to seeing the movie. I have a feeling it's gonna be awesome.

On the diversity scale. I give this book a B+
