Lots of hype about this book, and now, movie, preceded my experience with The Martian. The book is okay; the movie is good, and I guess I’m glad I experienced both. However, as a sci fi fan there were some elements missing in my opinion. Unfortunately, I cannot mention those elements here as it would spoil it for you. I recommend reading the book and then watching the movie. The book outlines all the “science” that the movie glosses over quickly. The movie does a great job with Martian scenery and suspense. As a reader, I knew what parts were changed for Hollywood, and that gave me a nerd based ego boost.
