Archer's Asylum

I'm a big bloke (7ft tall) and I am forever reading. This will mostly be my thoughts as I am reading and possibly a review or two. You may know me as Archer.


I am basically a lurker. My life revolves around my wife, my cats, Books, and entertainment.


I'm working on building and setting up a forge and I'm generally one of those people who can be found causing or in the middle of mischief somewhere...

Look, let's be honest here...

The Martian - Andy Weir

This is actually the first book I have read and loved in a loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong assed time. I mean like, over a fucking year, so for me this book is pure gold. I didn't read it. I fucking devoured it around work. 


I love the voice of the book. The dark humour, the sarcasm, the cynicism, the disco... It's all good. The science is heavy science but it is all plausible. I love it. I cannot recommend it to sci-fi fans enough.
