Scared the living fudge out of me when I read it as a 14 year old.

I might have Rummies, but not the other one. Got like 6 or 7 of his books i believe. Loved what all i've read of his works so far.

Reading the Martian now...about 3/4 through it and it just hasn't wowed me. I think it will make a good movie and the overall premise of the story is good I am just expecting more from it, I dunno maybe it will have a strong finish.

I'm currently about as far as you are on the audio version, and so far, I think I feel about the same. Nothing extraordinary, but its still fun. Popcorn sci-fi.

About 15 pages in and it's been very intriguing. Taking my sweet time with it.

^ It's a good one, among the best of the Elseworlds tales.

All Star Superman is my favorite modern story and probably one of the absolute best every to come around.

The latest Reacher. I know they won't win any literary awards, but they are a lot of fun.
