During the Christmas break of my sophomore year in college, I finished all the short stories and novels on Sherlock Holmes. I think I finished the 1500+ pages in 5 days. Today, I finished The Martian, which I just started yesterday late afternoon. I think this was the fastest time I’ve finished a 350+ paged book. I wouldn’t have known about The Martian if I didn’t read that article about the 21 Books To Read Before They Hit The Big Screen In 2015. The Martian is only one of the two books (the other being The Mortdecai Trilogy) that caught my attention. I thought it was just another space mission survival stuff but I really liked how things turned out. The humor is good, sarcasm and profanities are endless, what more can I ask for?
After turning my tablet’s screen off, there’s one thing I know for sure. I miss reading real books.
