Publisher's Summary

A brand-new production of Andy Weir’s modern sci-fi classic, narrated by the incomparable Wil Wheaton, and featuring bonus content from the writings of Mark Watney.

Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars.

Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there.

After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive - and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive.

Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plain old "human error" are much more likely to kill him first.

But Mark isn't ready to give up yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills - and a relentless, dogged refusal to quit - he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next. Will his resourcefulness be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him?

Wil Wheaton, who has lent his voice to sci-fi blockbusters like Ready Player One and Redshirts, breathes new life (and plenty of sarcasm) into the iconic character of Mark Watney, making this edition a must-listen for both longtime fans of The Martian and new listeners alike.

BONUS MATERIAL: This edition includes the following extras:

  • “Diary of an AssCan” - Mark Watney, new astronaut
  • “I Made It!” - A happy letter to Mom
  • “Car Trouble” - A somewhat sad letter to Mom
  • “The Earthling” - A postscript. *Available for the first time in this recording

One amazing experience

Incredible book with a really good narration. Although, it was hard to distinguish certain characters.

Good story. Bad narration.

As much as I like Wil Wheaton, RC Bray did better narration. Don't buy this version, if you can get RC Bray version from somewhere else (or sail the high seas).

Excellent Book

I have listened this book twice after watching movie based on this. But I have enjoyed every bit second of listening. Listening is way more exciting than movie. Loved this book so much

Brilliant

If it were a physical book, it would be unputdownable. Fast paced thriller at its best

Not interesting.

Not interesting.
Uses bad language.
Could listen only to the first few chapters.
Nowhere close to Project Hail Mary, after listening to which i had downloaded The Martian.

Absolutely loved it

Andy Weir and Will Weaton take us to Mars. Superb writing , and fantastic energetic & expressive narration.
I am sure it will be difficult to find more audiobooks with such superb narration.

I had previously listened to Project Hail Mary by same author, narrated by Ray Porter, and liked it.

I was looking for similar excellent narration. And then came across Will Weaton in Big Bang Theory, and saw a comment in Reddit mentioning this book.

And I purchased Martian Audiobook here. And absolutely enjoyed this.

Loved it!

Andy weir has given a novel that anyone with a bit of scientific curiosity could enjoy! The movie was good, but the novel is quite simply extraordinary 😃

Phenomenal story of human capability

I loved the Martian film and found it very possible and real to occur in the near future. And then I found this audiobook read by Sheldon's nemesis/friend Wil Wheaton! His narration as Mark was very impressive, just the right amount of fear and optimism and humour and sarcasm in the voice. I am happy this had the short tie-in stories that Andy Weir wrote later (I think soemwhere around 2015-2017) too. Martian is easily my favourite science fiction book ever!
