Reviews of The Martian

Sharp, funny and thrilling, with just the right amount of geekery.
-- Kirkus Reviews

The Martian must be the purest example of real-science sci-fi for many years. Just one character most of the time, no dialogue. It's utterly compelling.
-- The Wall Street Journal

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, NYT bestselling author of Ready Player One
