    The Martian de Andy Weir (electronicmemory)
    electronicmemory: Andy Weir and James S. A. Corey met at a book signing and agreed that The Expanse series and The Martian are set in the same time-line. So, if you're a fan of The Martian and want to find out what happened after Mars was colonized, read Leviathan Wakes. If you're a fan of The Expanse series, and want to read about the very first Martian colonist, read The Martian. For proof, check a 3 Oct 2015 tweet by @JamesSACorey for confirmation. One of The Expanse books also references a Martian ship named the 'Mark Watney'.… (mais)

This book had been on my radar for awhile. Then I started watching The Expanse, and it was awesome, but I didn't realize until later that the show was based on this book. That got me to finally read it, and glad I did. It was totally worthwhile. Well-written, vivid, cool/interesting/horrific shit happens. Plot was pleasingly intricate, and the way it wrapped up was rather ingenious - unexpected, yet seemed totally inevitable after the fact. And very solid characterizations, something which is a distinct rarity in sci-fi novels. Sign me up for more of both the show and subsequent books in this series. ( )

Hmmm... not really. Obviously it interested me enough to keep me reading for more than 500 pages, though that may have just been the sunk cost fallacy at work. I feel a little tricked by the fact that the opening of the book, especially the prologue, was much better than any other part.

By the time I got to the end I was pretty peeved, I have to say. It seemed like the authors were going for an epic complex political drama with tense relationships between different factions, but ultimately it kind of just boiled down to one thing happening and one force behind it. A little Star Wars prequels-esque. Like you get to the end and you thing: "wait, why did that all happen again? Why were they doing that?"

The main characters, Miller and Holden, were obviously supposed to be very different ideologically and their perspective chapters were even written by different people, but the section of the book where they were working together felt like one long muddle, instead of a back-and-forth between two appreciably different mentalities. Thinking back on one major incident where the two had differing opinions Miller shooting Anthony Dresden and Holden being pissed about it I could easily see it having been written so that they did the opposite and their positions were reversed.

Okay, and then speaking of characters, of course there were the women. Poor Julie, who couldn't escape the obsession of the much older man tasked with kidnapping/saving her even by dying in the grossest and scariest way possible (this is portrayed as a beautifully and fulfilling one-sided relationship for Miller, of course!). Poor Naomi, whose proclaimed competency in engineering and XO-ing is never particularly plot-relevant, at least not as much as the constant talk about how at least two of her three male crewmates would like to have sex with her and then one does (what a great will-they-won't-they!). A dead girlfriend (one scene), an ex-wife (no scenes), and two real bitches at work pretty much round out the female cast.

Oh and what is up with Holden mentioning he was raised by a cool family co-op of five dads and three moms, and then everyone else in the solar system is never even assumed to be anything but straight? What's going on here, society-wise?

Anyway, if you like Firefly you'll probably like this lol ( )

Having seen the Netflix series 1-2 first, the plot was known but the book managed to fit in so much more content. Fascinating Science Fiction set in a perhaps not too far future, while the human race have spread through out the Solar System. Maybe the first book does not give a good picture of what the Belters really are and why they differ. Same can be said about the Martians who just seem exist to be annoyed by the Earthers, while trying to terraform their planet simultaneously. But much of this will develop through the series. ( )

Having watched the first season of The Expanse, I was interested in getting back to the source material.

Having now finished this, I found it moves much better than the series. Why they had to tack on all the boring governmental sub-plot in the series bewilders me. This is Miller's and Holden's story.

I truly enjoyed this book. It's got action. It's got intrigue. It's full of hard science, but also some really fascinating speculative concepts too.

Others have complained about the world-building aspect. I found it fine. This is an ambitious novel, setting up and digging into some fairly complex plot threads, while continuing to be entertaining. I think the authors did a fine job with both.

I'm definitely on board for the next one. ( )

God, it's been a crazy ride. I'm coming back to this book on the other side of five novels, at least as many novellas, the announcement of the show and production of the whole first season. I spent the whole of listening to (The Churn & then) this book grinning like a fool. Catching so many different tiny clues, laughing at foibles, and things people will have to grow out of.

I was so glad to read this, again, and I can't wait to see what my group thought of it, and what all we'll talk about and tear apart in this world (of things I can talk about and the million things beyond book one that I can't mention to them), or the early episodes I'll play for them.

September 25, 2014
All of these in my head really only get a 4.5 rating but a) I feel entirely waffly about giving them a 4 star rating and kicking them down for those who glance over star ratings only and b) I'm totally on board for reading this series into 2019, which is how far it is currently projected for having books in (and having them come out, with this many pages and this much amazing writing and this many different characters for *years* every single year.)


Book one was rough around the edges, I have to admit. I started it once, put it down. Started a second time, got about twenty more pages, put it down. Third times the charm I started reading it on breaks and over my lunch time (entirely baffled about this barely brushing against each other team by best friend was raving about being the most amazing Found Family in a new series). But I need t highlight that's what this book needs to be to get to that (where she was talking to me from, in the middle of reading book one).

This book is flawed and rough and rugged and gorgeous, and it's all made of messy first steps and I know I would love it even more if I went back and read it now. I deeply love the whole main crew, and I have such strong feelings about the character of Miller and his journey with Head-Julie, Real-Julie, and the progotegen. This whole book, the whole massive fall into teh drink of it, is just the first page in an incredibly massive, well written, well considered on going series that you can only appreciate as well once you have fallen through the rabbit.

I hope you do. Read it, and join up, and fall through the Rabbit hole. The Roci always has room for one more. ( )
