I remember you (think it was you, apologies if it was somebody else) talking about the book a while back and it did sound like a fantastic premise for a story. I've kind of had the book on my wish list for a while now. Hopefully I can get around to reading that before this movie comes out...

I signed up to the free Audible trial last month and it was the first ever audiobook I'd listened to. Should make a good film.

Yup, a very good adaptation, albeit with a few bits removed. Everything seemed sped up in comparison to the book, which is inevitable I guess.

I was hooked throughout the film. It was engaging and amazingly shot. It would have been a nice touch to zoom back into Mars at the end and see some potatoes growing...
