Ok, I'm gonna split this review into two parts first part is what I think immediately after reading the book, the second part will be a little more thought through, im not really well versed in sci-fi (hoping to change that soon) so I don't have much to compare it to. This review is also just gonna be a bunch of bullet points because im bad at writing.
FIRST PART
  • I enjoyed this book!
  •  The science stuff was easy to understand (for the most part) 
  • I loved rocky so much.
  •  I didn't really like the main dude that much up until
    Spoiler he decided to send the beetles and save Rocky
     
  • sometimes the story felt plot convenient.
SECOND PART
Not much different from my first thoughts, I read some other reviews and watch some reviews I noticed a few more things,
  • pretty similar to the martin
  • I liked this more than the martin (right now the Martin is at a five on my page, im prolly gonna change that to 3.75)
  • Ryland grace is kinda a gray sue, I think that was what I didn't really like about him at first I thought it was just because I thought he was annoying but some other reviews made me realize the word of it.
  • I REALLY wanted to see more Stratt, I liked her sometimes she felt like a stereotypical scientist character but I tend to like those types of characters.
  • I love rocky, really words cannot put how much I loved him
  • I wish Ryland's sadness about his cremates death was more dwelt upon, but I guess he didn't actually spend that much time with them but id be brawling like a baby.
  • Im really glad Rsyland and Stratt weren't a thing thank dear God that would have been weird
  • The ending felt rushed.
  • I liked the pace.

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.

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.
