My last post listed some drawbacks to the movie The Martians (including Matt Damon’s rugged good looks and marketers that infect movies like barnacles on a speedboat). However, that’s overstating diddly little shit. The main point is you ought to see it (you probably already have since I’m usually the last to pick up on such things).
It occurs to me:
- The book is probably as good as the movie.
- Winter is coming.(1)
So, you might as well buy the book now. You know you’re going to want it. I have already ordered mine. You have two choices The Martian on kindle for $8.99 and The Martian on paperback for $9.00. (Those two prices tell me a lot about why traditional paper based publishing is toast.)
- Winter is the time for peacefully reading by a warm fire. Duh!
