Review: The Martian by: Andy Weir

— feeling sad
The Martian - Andy Weir

I solemnly swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth so help me God.

 

I received this book about a month ago, I would say. I was so excited, I thought that this would be a great book and what better time to review it than right before the movie comes out!  So, when the box showed up at my door I just about ripped the cardboard to pieces. I immediately picked up the book and began to read. Several chapters in I decided that I should put the book down for good. Here is my reason: I don't enjoy reading a book where a cuss word is thrown into every paragraph. I can tolerate a few unpleasant words in a book, but when there are cuss words every few sentences I start getting frustrated.

     On the bright side, I loved the idea behind the plot! I enjoyed how the story progressed, at least during the part that I read. I wasn't sure if I would enjoy the smarty-pants, scientifical (I am aware that this is not a real word, but I don't really care.) mumbo-jumbo, but I ended up being able to follow along with the smart talk and I enjoyed it! I wish I could have continued on, but I just couldn't handle all of the language. Thanks so much for reading!
