"This is a great progression for Andy Weir. The concept pushes the limits of 'hard' sci-fi while still employing some very imaginative concepts and exploring them through real scientific principals. While it necessarily has to play pretty fast and loose with some aspects of the story, it does a good job of providing reasonable backstory on the main character, and develops the character well over the course of the story. It does get a little bit bogged down by technical exposition in some parts."
"This was an interesting suspenseful science fiction story. What sets it apart from most science fiction is how funny and heartwarming much of the story is. Don't read summaries ahead of time because it's so great to be surprised by what unfolds."
"Absolutely amazing story. I generally dislike sci-fi as a genre, but this was an exception. Its a science fiction with a heavy mystery element. The story is full of twists and turns. One of the things that also makes it good is the fact that the fake science makes sense and is seamlessly blended with real science. "
