So last week I read Andy Weir’s The Martian. Long story short, I loved the book and am super excited for the movie. My normal mode of action after reading a book such as this, would be to write up a review and share with all of you my thoughts on this wonderful piece of Science Fiction. However, I feel as if there are probably enough reviews of this work floating around (it got GoodReads choice for 2014!), so instead I’m going to publish a list of Buzzfeed Style headlines that came into my brain while reading the book. And no, I haven’t the slightest idea what possessed me to come up with the first one, but once I’d started, I couldn’t stop . . . (until I hit an odd number, because listicles).
Anyway, hope you enjoy these 9 headlines inspired by Andy Weir’s The Martian:
X types of food that NASA doesn’t want you to know can grow on Mars.
Y number of things will actually help you survive on Mars. # C is so gross!
Man survives on Mars using . . . Science.
This guy went X number Sols in complete isolation on Mars. Please ladies swipe him right!
Watney inspires new 007 film: Live Another Sol. Gets to play Q!
Three ‘pick me ups’ to start your Sol on Mars: Martian coffee. Potato skin tea, nothing tea.
X books you can read on Mars (hint: they’re all Agatha Christie)
X songs that will keep you going on Mars. And it’s not all disco!
3 jobs you can get on Mars. Turns out they’re not that different from earth! (Farmer, construction, trucker)
If you’ve read the book and think any of these are funny, please comment to that effect. It will make me feel like less of a nerd. If you haven’t read the book and are wondering WTF is going on? I’ve just given your 9 reasons to read this book. How’s that for a review 😉
