Weir did an amazing job of balancing Watney's desperation at his situation with the cabin fever that comes from days spent waiting for technology to work. Watney is a smart, resourceful, and incredibly sarcastic person, the last of which is dutifully recorded in the log entries that comprise this book. He is also profane (the first three sentences contain two f-bombs), but if you can forgive his mouth you may enjoy this story of suspense, adventure, and dark humor.
