There’s This Book, And You Should Read It.

<Geekmode squee=”true”>

The Martian by Andy Weir is one of the best books I’ve read in a very long time. I’ve read it more than once. In fact, I’m half-way through my third audio reading of it. And you need to read it because of this:

No, see, I’m serious. It’s going to be a movie. And it’s going to be a movie that has to be good, because the book is freaking awesome. And if the film isn’t as good as the book, I will cry. Lots.

So do me a favour, and read the darned book. Then come back here, and figure out with me in the Comments Below how the hell they’re going to film and portray the majority of the book… Because I have no idea.
