Sarah (sekaplan) | 54 comments I have to admit, I saw the movie first. I knew how things were going to go. But even so, the book was so much richer than the movie, although, given everything that went wrong, Mark Watney should have died on Mars. (I know I am in the minority here, but seriously).

Still, the book was compelling, most of the characters were well fleshed out and I liked that Wier gave as little physical description as possible. In my head, Dr. Beck was Shemar Moore and Mindy Park was Margeret Cho. The movie was whitewashed for sure, and that made me frustrated.

On a personal note, the book got me out of a reading slump. I have been buying and reading a lot lately, but never finishing anything. And R. C. Bray should read all Audible books until the end of time.

Thomas Johansson (dakkster) R.C. Bray is the bomb!
