“It is, surprisingly, even better than The Martian.”
First off, this book is not like The Martian (which I also read and enjoyed immensely). It is, surprisingly, even better than The Martian. Secondly, this is not merely a science fiction story. It is much more than that. It is a compelling, intelligent novel about complex human beings, realistically facing unprecedented issues, in the near future. The characters, especially the central character, are fully rounded personalities, with virtues and flaws. Some you will love, some you will despise. I read one or two books per week, focusing on crime and legal fiction, with some historical novels and biographies and occasional humor. I may read one or two science fiction books per year. Nevertheless, I found this story to be compelling. I forced myself to “slow read” this book, because I did not want it to end. I am astonished that this is the author’s first full novel. I will eagerly await what he writes next.
