This book is read by Doug Philip and I will never listen to any other books he narrates. Throughout the whole TEN HOURS, he didn't use any intonation or emotions whatsoever. It's impossible to tell who's speaking until they're mentioned in the story, except for Nicholas Crisp, who Philip gives a weird maritimer's accent to. This is a shame because the lack luster performance is sharply contrasted by the brilliant story telling of Thomas King. Despite the environmental disaster that was central to the theme, I never felt bogged down by catastrophic state of affairs. I loved how King weaved his humor throughout the story. His characters were interesting & believable. Do yourself a favor and read the book, do not listen to this rendition by Doug Philip - Audible, you should have better standards than this.

This is the most heartfelt telling of a beautiful relationship between Stacey & Wesley. It made me smile innumerable times, made me laugh out loud occasionally, educated me beyond what I expected & also made me cry. This story has changed the way I feel about animals & their sentience - I definitely feel more intune with & compassionate towards them. This story has appeal to a wide demographic of readers - I'll bet young kids would love to hear this as part of a bedtime story routine :)

This book blew open the door in my world on the benefits of sleep and the detriments of too little sleep. I knew of the importance of sleep but had no idea what far reaching consequence the lack of sleep can have on every system in the body. I changed my sleep habits immediately upon reading how detrimental it is to not sleep long enough. Improve every aspect of your life by getting enough shut-off eye.

Intelligently engaging and detailed. There were several times I needed to listen to sections repeatedly, to compose the images in my imagination. This amplified the genius of the story and the urgency of the game plan. Watney's comic relief usually came as a surprise and had me laughing out loud. I'll definitely read more Andy Weir.
