My first Graham Greene and a good choice too
Good story, excellent narration. Will definitely look out for more read by Tim Piggot-Smith
Tries to be too clever (but isn't)
Initially this seemed like a good story. It has a great premise. However I gave up on it about halfway through as it became quite irritating. It's more about "look at how much I know about Dr Who" as they try to cram as many canon facts as possible.
It's a pity the author didn't do some research on the military as his assertion that Lethbridge-Stewart was a Sapper and then a Lance Corporal along with Mike Yates being promoted from Sergeant to Captain is quite ridiculous!
Narration by Dan Starky is excellent as per his other reads such as 'Amorality Tale'.

Great story and performance
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes. Gripping story with great humour. The performance by R.C. Bray is excellent. Best audio book performance I've listened to since joining Audible.
What other book might you compare The Martian to, and why?
The Apollo 13 story has parallels
Which character – as performed by R. C. Bray – was your favourite?
Mark Watney of course! Venkat Kapoor and Annie Montrose are good too.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Any additional comments?
As an Engineer a lot of the technical really appealed to me. Will be looking for more books written by Andy Weir and alsoany read by R.C Bray.
