The Martian

Post by Winnow »

The Martian is one of the best books (audio) I've ever listened to. Great performance by the narrator and captivating story.

Watched the movie tonight and it's a very good movie. Having read the book within the past 6-8 months, it's fresh in my memory. It's amazing how much of the story has to be left out of the movie. You get the gist of the story but so much of the hard science is left out due to time constraints.

Matt Damon does a very good job. I didn't think of him as "Matt Damon" while watching.

If you enjoy intelligent space/survival movies, this is one to see for sure but this story in particular, is best listened to as an audiobook. With the excellent voice performance of R.C.Bray.

Here's the audiobook but doubt is lasts long on youtube:

Strange background music for about 2 minutes then it goes away. Give it a listen!
