I'm currently reading The Martian (80% in) and I really like it. I love the attention to details.

I picked this up on your recommendation, and I'm about a third into it. I love how clearly the main character's humor is demonstrated. I think that's a very realistic attitude to adopt in such a situation.

Yeah. I'm eleven and a half chapters in and I'm really enjoying it. It's not high brow like I thought it would be, but it's enjoyable. For some reason, it kind of reminds me of World War Z. Probably because it's a) easy to read and b) the author fills you in on concepts as you go along.
