Re: Chapters 25 and 26 of "The Martian" by Andy Weir
No truer words can be spoken
The mild exceptions of whether there are enough worth while reasons, a large enough rate of success or even a capacity to achieve the type of mission depicted in both the book and film, were covered early in the discussion. There really was not a hole lot to discuss beyond as the audience wasn't presented with much in the way of controversial activities or statements by Andy Weir. It was for the most part a simple survival story.
It is interesting though! We read a story or watch a film (the book was better) and there is the satisfaction of being entertained, and yet no angst over having been so.
