About the Book
“Five a.m. was a largely theoretical concept to me. I knew it existed, but I rarely observed it.”
There is something about Andy Weir's ability to make a science fiction story accessible to people who wouldn't normally read the genre. I really appreciate that, especially because it got so many people at the old-people book club I attend to start looking more into the genre. Also, he's freaking hilarious. And I love that about his stuff.
Anyway, I really enjoyed this one. I wasn't sure if I would, because I thought I'd compare it to The Martian too much - but they're really different but with the same writing style. And I freaking appreciated that so much.
I am surprised to say this, but I liked this one more than his other book. I think it's because it does a lot of relationship building. And although the drama is very much the same level, if not more, of life threatening, I just felt that Jazz was more of someone that I could relate to.
This is one book that I absolutely highly mega super recommend to everyone who likes reading. Give in to my whims!
