Eric Mesa (djotaku) | 635 comments I've been an insatiable reader since I could read. If Goodreads had existed back then, I'd have somewhere near 1000 books in my read column. I also also like other narrative forms like comics and movies. I imagine many of you who are in this book club are in the same boat. This gives us the ability to predict plots quite accurately. We know all the tropes.

I'm somewhere into the third chapter, I think. (view spoiler)

terpkristin | 4211 comments I'm about halfway done and am kind of bored of it. It's the same thing over and over again, rinse, repeat.


Paolo (ppiazzesi) | 51 comments I´m about 80% in and while I´m enjoying it, no, I have never been worried about Mark´s survival. I´ve never really considered the possibility of him dying alone on Mars, and this lack of dramatic tension is one of my main criticisms.

Well some folk sort of spoiled it for me, so I don't really have that issue. But then again I'm barely into chapter two so far. Enjoying the random humor, though.

So now you're trying to spoil it for others by putting that in a thread about the first three chapters?
