This is a brilliant book, in my humble opinion. Not only are the characters well crafted, they are also ones you start to care about. This is definitely a plot driven book, but the characters are what stands out. Some of the scenes had me close to tears because I cared about the characters deeply enough. Just... really well done.

I used to be so good at science when I was younger, but now the smallest hint of science (and math) will make my brain shut down. So even though there was a lot of that going on, the book was so good. I loved Rocky so much (as well as the interactions between Ryland and Rocky). I just think it’s sick that if this were to ever be made into a movie I would not be able to watch it because Rocky would terrify me. 

Anyways, this book also made me cry. It was heartwarming yet slightly sad, and I just really loved the friendship between Ryland and Rocky.

Andy Weir really said we are at our most human when we turn back to save each other.
Also that the world can be saved through the power of jazz hands.

The only unbelievable thing is that
SpoilerIt seems a little far fetched that every world government would collaborate like that even in the face of imminent apocalypse but this book is at it heart about  Star Trek levels of optimism.

It’s worth a little suspension of disbelief for the rest of the very enjoyable plot.

Very fun scifi adventure thriller. Hard to take a break. Some very cool thought has been put into the setting. Similar to The Martian, this book takes delight in airlock plotlines.

As good as the Martian was, this is by far better. A solid mystery woven in with science and humor. Stratt is a great complicated character
Spoileras is Grace once we learn he never wanted to go.
