    Robinson Crusoe on Mars **Andy Weir's second novel Artemis, a high concept thriller set on the moon, is out now** A survival story for the 21st century and the international bestseller behind the major film from Ridley Scott, starring Matt Damon and Jessica Chastain. I'm stranded on Mars. I have no way to communicate with Earth. I'm in a Habitat designed to last 31 days. If the Oxygenator breaks down, I'll suffocate. If the Water Reclaimer breaks down, I'll die of thirst. If the Hab breaches, I'll just kind of explode. If none of those things happen, I'll eventually run out of food and starve to death. So yeah. I'm screwed. Andy Weir's second novel Artemis is now available.

    Well written, well researched, well paced, humorous book about an astronaut stuck on Mars.

    Going by the title of the book, one might think it is a very philosophical book and it would deal with the psychology of the character and would be a very dark insight into the mind of a human being. But, it is pretty much the exact opposite. It is not a very philosophical book, is very light on the psychology of someone stranded alone on a piece of rock very, very far from Earth. It is instead a book with a hilarious, yet genius character who uses his intellect and the few resources availabl...

    Excellent read!

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading this intense tale of survival. The author's writing style is modern and can be enjoyed throughout the book. Alone in another planet, no means of communication, no back-up plan, limited elements required for survival (like oxygen, food) among several other things that were missing, would you even dream of being back to your home? The protagonist does, and makes every effort to not only survive, but also return to his home, his family. Overall, this was a very inte...

    Best Book Around If You Need A Sci-Fi To Spned Your Time With

    This book is a definite classic. So much detailed that you actually begin to think that living on Mars is possible....if you have some satellites lying around :)
    The book is witty and catchy and the best part is the timely humor..

    Nail-biting Thrill

    Think of the movie 127 hours. This book is much more engrossing than that. The writing is witty and humourous. Andy Weir is a force to be reckoned. Amazing service by flipkart and WS retail. Love you guys!

    Awesome book

    It's a brilliantly written book which you don't want to part with till you finish it. It's a fiction but you at times forget about it and start believing it to be true story. A week after I finished reading this book, I could really get over it. Its awesome experience and highly recommended.
    Print is good and packaging was neat. Even though it's an imported edition, it is worth the money.

    Humorous

    This is the most hilarious book I've ever read. The plot is great. The style of narration is great. One of the best books I've ever read.The very first line of the book itself is hilarious.
    I'd love to quote some funny lines:

    [12:04] JPL: ...Also, please watch your language. Everything you type is being broadcast live all over the world.
    [12:15] WATNEY: Look! A pair of boobs! -> (.Y.)

    [08:31] JPL: ...By the way, the name of the probe we're sending is Iris. Named after the Greek goddess who...
