The Martian by Andy Weir

I'm not really sure what to say about this book other than that it's very good. I could not always get the whole science but. The way the things were going. But Andy does explain everything in lay man's terms so it does make sense most of the times.
It was nice to see that the technology that was talked about sounded like it was possible and not from too many years in the future.
I was hoping there would be a green awesome looking Martian queen too bit that wasn't going to happen.
I saw a video on YouTube that they ate going to make a movie on this as well. I'm sure it's going to be an award winning movie.
It was amazing to find out that with many things going against you one could still find the faith to keep on fighting and survive. It was almost as if the character knew he was going to survive in the end.

"Influx" could there be things we are missing ..

I wonder why this novel isn't as famous as it should have been but i did like it. The fact that there is high end technology that we can only think of but it's not yet allowed to be available to general public makes you wonder if that is actually true in the real world as well.

I tend to think there is always something that is held back from the society but it could be limited and not on that much of a grand scale as shown in the book.

We have to consider the economical factors as well. Huge organizations have the means to distribute new technology and are always looking to get ahead with the competition. So they would do anything to ensure a proper distribution of technology.

But still there could be forces like the BTC controlling the world technology or information secretly.

Maybe that could explain the alien phenomenon as well. I always believe it's a bunch of hoax and it is a concept used to cover up or show people something that they are not supposed to understand.

The kill order by James dashner

Read the book a few days ago and basically it tells about a few events before actually the Flare Virus broke free rampant on the world.

Describes how the government actually spread the initial virus so that they could kill enough people in the world for it to be able to support the rest. Since the resources were scarce and all.

It was a stupid idea altogether and I would never support that anyway. Killing half of the planet so the remaining half can survive?

Strong will survive anyway and weak will succumb to the hardships so they should have just waited it out.

So anyways there was a lot of killing and turns out that Teresa was one of the first people to be discovered as an immune to the virus.

A group of four people set out to protect her too in the midst of their own efforts to survive where everything seems impossible.

Too many people die but they are able to send her off through the flat trans (flat transportation through a portal from one place to another) but die in the end.

It was heart breaking to know that the little girl they saved after so much trouble, death and suffering just had to die for nothing on the end and they never get the cure either. (Teresa dies in the 3rd book right in the end).

Quite a disappointing end but the story comes closer to perfection like that i suppose.

The Death Cure (The Maze Runner) ending!

I would have to say that reading the trilogy things felt very natural and the flow was good.

I was so interested in the novel that I finished the books in a week.

Although I felt at times that other characters were not explained as much at times. Which is completely fine as it is completely up to the author as much as he wants to describe his creations.

Thomas played a very heroic part in the first novel but I kept on expecting same kind of special deeds from him that would make me jump up from my seat but unfortunately that didn't happen.

Still Thomas as a character was amazing and did everything right. Can't say there was anything wrong with him at all.

I was hoping Teresa and Thomas would have reconciled after a certain point of time. Even if they didn't I was okay with it but the way she died in the end seemed as if the novel was being climaxed in a hurry.

Would have been a much happier ending if she had lived. Poor girl though.

Otherwise ending was perfect. It was obvious that the cure wasn't coming. I never thought how getting brain patterns would help create a drug which would resolve the issue with the flare.

A better line of action would have been working on the lines of "bliss" acting as a numbing agent that would help people control their anger.

People could have been isolated instead of immunes being captured the sick could have been experimented on.

It just doesn't make sense to run tests on people who are already fine instead of people who are sick.

Anyway, still it was amazing. Hats off to James Dashner. Good job!

Still gotta read The Kill Order...

Not wanting to sleep

I always have this wish of not wanting to sleep staying awake and procrastinating over different stuff. Doesn't matter if it is going to be useful or not.

Then I give up and sleep.

Been watching Big Bang Theory

It seems as if though the show was made for smart people but I think in reality its for dumb people or for guys who have been geeks in their lives and found it hard to cope with social life.

Gets really confusing sometimes to relate the show to anything. But it is good fun to watch though.
