Andy Weir’s debut novel The Martian has taken the science fiction world by storm, or rather by a dust storm. Weir originally self-published the novel only to have Crown Publishing Group purchase the rights in 2014 after hearing the story pitched as “Apollo 13 meets Castaway.” True to his pitch, Weir takes his reader’s on a journey through space and survival.
Usually when I read a book, I know exactly how I feel about it, what I liked and what I didn’t like, which bits made me thing, and which I found maddeningly cliched.

Moby Dick, easily his most well-known work, is widely seen as a monstrosity whose ferociousness rivals that of the white whale himself. While “Call me Ishmael” is probably one of the most recognizable first lines of all time, few people who can quote that line have read any of the words that follow after it.
