3 Books Like “The Martian”

If  you enjoyed and lol’ed (in some places) while reading Andy Weir‘s (see Andy Weir’s interviewThe Martian (read book review here), the story of an astronaut Mark Watney, who struggles to survive, alone on the red planet. Maybe, you’d watched the movie directed by Ridley Scott, in which Matt Damon portray’s Mark Watney. Maybe, you just more of the red planet. Whichever the case is, you’d want to take a look at these books.

Moving Mars by Greg Bear

Blurb: Moving Mars is a story of human courage and love set within the greater saga of a planetary liberation movement. Mars is a colonial world, governed by corporate interests on Earth.

No Man Friday by Rex Gordon

Blurb: Quite Similar to The Maitian, but is more adventurous.

The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury

Blurb: In The Martian Chronicles, Ray Bradbury, America’s preeminent storyteller, imagines a place of hope, dreams, and metaphor; of crystal pillars and fossil seas, where a fine dust settles on the great empty cities of a vanished, devastated civilization.

  1. I love the Bradbury! Very different in tone from “The Martian”, but definitely a classic.

    Did you read “Artemis”? Fans have been divided, but I really enjoyed it. Ultimately, it was about the father-daughter relationship, and that touched me. Also, lots of snark and cool tech!


    1. I haven’t read Artemis. I want to pick it but the TBR pile sitting on my desk is saying no. But I will ignore that pile some time soon and will definitely take peek. Thanks for the insight. I love the tech.

      I once interviewed Andy Weir and at that time I did not know he and me share the similar interests.


Any thoughts?
