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.
