This book is a real page turner, it made me really excited reading it, knowing than in few years NASA will actually be sending astronauts to discover Mars. My favorite character is Mark Watney because he is very brave and can handle anything that is given to him! While I was reading this book, I felt as though I was Mark Watney, being stranded on Mars. I felt lonesome, sad, but alive. The characters in this book, including the men and women at NASA, each have a sense of humor. The Martian is one of my favorite books because I like science fiction., and I think you should read it too!
I recommend this book for itís humor and for itís vivid images. Half of the book, I couldnít stop laughing! If you like humor, than this is the right book for you. If you like scifi, you will like this book. This book is more for grades 7 and up.
