The Martian a Novel

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.

The Love Affairs of Nathaniel P

The Love Affairs of Nathaniel P

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. But this book was different, somehow. I was unable to come down on one side or the other, to decide whether I loved it or just wanted to throw it out the window. Either way, I couldn’t stop reading. And the very fact of my indecision, which I cared enough to be indecisive, meant it was one of the more interesting works I’d read in a while.

Moby Dick by Herman Melville

Moby Dick by Herman Melville

Herman Melville is one of the great figures of American literature, even if the vast majority of Americans have never read his work, or, if they have, might have been assigned his famous short story “Bartleby, the Scrivener” as part of a literature survey in high school or college, and probably, don’t remember reading it. 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. It’s a book that many people buy, or tell themselves that they might read someday, but because of it’s very left, more often than not is only used as a paperweight.

The Hunger Games Mockingjay

The Hunger Games Mockingjay

The Hunger Games Mockingjay is the last book in Susanne Collin’s Hunger Games trilogy, a wildly successful young adult franchise that NPR’s official ranking placed second only to the Harry Potter series in terms of both commercial and popular success. While the first two books, do have political elements, they are, for the most part, pretty traditionally formatted examples of the genre.
