My lovely friend Nick recommended this Andy Weir novel to me. I’d read The Martian previously, so jumped PHM immediately. I was in the depths of being frustrated with Shantaram at the time, so jumping onto something fun and interesting was an easy decision to make.

I loved the premise of the book, and the unlikely-hero trope. I found Grace frustrating as a character, but I get the feeling that I was meant to.

I enjoyed the thought that Weir put into the alien non-humanoid design and language, and their scientific limitations.

Largely an enjoyable book, and I look forward to the film.
