Teknisk bok med gripande berättelse bra tempo och lite intriger på vägen. Vill gärna se filmen också, men den är borta från biograferna.
Thomas Mätzsch, 23 februari 2015
SciFi (nåväl...) när den är som bäst - spännande, rolig, tekniskt trovärdig och fantasieggande. En sann läsupplevelse - njöt av varenda sida och kunde inte lägga boken ifrån mig...
Kan dock förstå om en och annan uppfattar boken som väl tekniskt nördig och pysslig, men det är på ett både omväxlande och trovärdigt sätt och framförallt roligt!
Väntar nu otåligt på filmatiseringen!

Recensioner i media
"Andy Weir's masterpiece!" -- Tom Hanks * Twitter * "Watney's gallows humour and his brushes with death as he uses every ounce of his intelligence and astronaut's training to claw his way out of the pit will have you laughing and gasping by turns. I read this book in a weekend. I didn't think I'd have the time to - but Andy Weir's edge-of-the-seat storytelling didn't leave me any choice." -- Richard Madeley, Richard and Judy Book Club "Andy Weir's terrific 'lost in space' novel is an absolute page turner from first to last ... Tautly-written, full of extraordinary and fascinating detail about life in a frozen red desert so far from home, The Martian is one of the best thrillers either of us has read in years. Highly recommended." -- Judy Finnigan, Richard and Judy Book Club "The best book I've read in ages. Clear your schedule before you crack the seal. This story will take your breath away faster than a hull breech. Smart, funny, and white-knuckle intense, The Martian is everything you want from a novel." -- Hugh Howey * New York Times bestselling author of Wool * "Accomplished...believable but suspenseful as [Watney] battles against the odds for survival" * The Guardian * "like Gravity meets Robinson Crusoe - utterly nail-biting and memorable." -- James Lovegrove * FT * "A book I just couldn't put down! It has the very rare combination of a good, original story, interestingly real characters and fascinating technical accuracy...reads like MacGyver meets Mysterious Island." -- Astronaut Chris Hadfield * Commander of the International Space Station and author of An Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth * "The amount of research here is astounding. We're suckers for well-grounded fiction, and on the technical side, The Martian is exemplary ... witty ... funny" * SFX * "The Martian kicked my ass! Weir has crafted a relentlessly entertaining and inventive survival thriller, a MacGyver-trapped-on-Mars tale that feels just as real and harrowing as the true story of Apollo 13." -- Ernest Cline * New York Times bestselling author of Ready Player One * "Weir's debut is easily the best SF novel of the year so far" * Financial Times * "An impressively geeky debut novel ... the technical details keep the story relentlessly precise and the suspense ramped up" * Entertainment Weekly * "Strong, resilient, and gutsy. It's Robinson Crusoe on Mars, 21st century style. Set aside a chunk of free time when you start this one. You're going to need it because you won't want to put it down." -- Steve Berry "Think Apollo 13 ... on Mars! ... A saga of courage, ingenuity and humour - and utterly convincing thanks to superb research. The best space disaster story since Clarke's A Fall of Moondust." -- Stephen Baxter "jaw-clenchingly gripping ... a modern-day Apollo13" * Stuff Magazine * "Brilliant...a celebration of human ingenuity [and] the purest example of real-science sci-fi for many years...Utterly compelling." * Wall Street Journal * "Don't be put off thinking this is a sci-fi book - it's so much more than that. Utterly brilliant." * Bella * "One of the best thrillers I've read in a long time, an incredible story about an astronaut marooned on Mars. This is no science fiction tale: the technology is beautifully researched and based on what is currently envisioned for a manned flight to Mars. It feels so real it could almost be nonfiction, and yet it has the narrative drive and power of a rocket launch. This is Apollo 13 times ten. I could not put this book down." -- Douglas Preston * #1 New York Times bestselling author of Impact and Blasphemy * "Gripping...shapes up like Defoe's Robinson Crusoe as written by someone brighter." -- Larry Niven, multiple Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author of the Ringworld series and Lucifer's Hammer "The tension simply never lets up,

He is a lifelong space nerd and a devoted hobbyist of such subjects as relativistic physics, orbital mechanics, and the history of manned spaceflight. He also mixes a mean cocktail. He lives in California.
