The Martian is a great in a way that when Mark tries to strategize how to maximize the resources around him to stay alive, it makes me realize how I would and should take advantages of the resources around me to maximize the efficiency of my day-to-day decisions. The book is an epic adventure. Weir is able to paint and inspire an epic alien world with minimal descriptions. The pace of the book is very well carried out: the contrast between action and suspense is what makes the book extremely addictive. The story and its emotional journey makes sense, and so does the science, which not a lot of science fiction can get right. I'm very impressed with the book and plan to read it again in the near future.
