I don't think this book needs much introduction, but just in case:


Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars.

Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there.

After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he's alive—and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive.

Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plain-old "human error" are much more likely to kill him first.

But Mark isn't ready to give up yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills—and a relentless, dogged refusal to quit—he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next. Will his resourcefulness be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him?

Isn't that always the case? When has a movie been better than the book?

Shawshank Redemption.
Fight Club.
To be fair, in enjoyed both books. The movies were excellent. There's probably others that I'm not coming up with at present.

But yeah, generally, the books are much better. Sometimes by insanely vast margins...*cough* Dark Tower *cough*

EDIT: Also, I think it's worth mentioning that by buying the kindle version, you can get the audibook at a discount. It isn't huge, but you'll be spending less than the $15/mo Audible subscription so it works out to a $3.50 savings over using a credit. This is probably only important to those who horde and burn through Audible credits like crazed lunatics. IE, myself.

I was completely bored with this book.

Unless reading about potatoes growing is interesting to you, you should pass on this. Highly over rated
That's good to know. I enjoyed the movie but I see how the book might drag a bit.

The audiobook is fantastic. The narrator really captured the voice and humor of Mark Watney (the protagonist), and the secondary characters, too.

Went to buy it and showed that I bought it 2 years ago. Great book and great movie. Glad to have seen the movie first. Made reading the extra details more vividly imaginable.

A superb book, better than the superb movie.

Well worth $3. I paid more several years ago.

Completely agree on both those.
Also, Forrest Gump - good book. Better movie.
Also, A Clockwork Orange, Trainspotting.

Godfather and The Shining held their own against very good books.
