App Name: Short Stories And Audios

The Martian is a science fiction novel and the debut novel of Andy Weir. It is the story of an American astronaut, Mark Watney, who is stranded on Mars alone. He must improvise and use all his skills to survive. Andy has been a computer programmer most of his life. He won the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer in 2016. Besides this, he has other novels, short stories, comics, and graphic novels. Check out his famous book Artemis for a nice read. Furthermore, you can read Randomize.

Wil Wheaton is an amazing voice actor, no doubt about that. However, this is one book where he didn’t perform at all. All his characters sounded the same.

Six days ago, Mark became one of the first people to walk on planet Mars. Now, he is sure he’ll be among the first to die on the planet. This happened because of a deadly dust storm that nearly kills him. His crew members assume he’s dead and evacuates. Mark finds himself abandoned and stranded in this alien place with no way to signal home that he’s alive. Even if he could send a signal, his supplies would be finished off long before anyone arrives.

But he doesn’t have to starve to death. Chances are, the damaged machinery, hostile environment, or plain old human error will do the trick. Still, Mark isn’t ready to give up yet. He uses his resourcefulness and genius to overcome one insurmountable task after another.

The story is a unique and interesting one. It is about resilience and the will and drives of human effort. The narration is far from perfect, however. R. C. Bray was much better in that role.
