So far this isn´t good. It´s kind of boring and Weir´s technical explanations feel like the worst kind of infodump.
It seems that Jazz and Mark Watney, Weir´s main character from his first book, share the same kind of personality. And they have a personality that can annoy other people really fast.
I have to admit, though, that I liked Mark Watney a lot as a character. Mainly because his personality is aimed at himself, being alone on a planet without any contact to the outside world. His quirky sense of humour helps him pull through and it added a whole lot of fun to the book. Jazz on the other hand is downright annoying and not a very likeable character to begin with.
I´m listening to the audiobook version narrated by Rosario Dawson and it might be that I´m spoiled by Stephen Fry as a narrator, but I don´t particularly like her as a narrator. A lot of the characters sound the same to me and some of the dialects sound weird.
