I bought this book because I really enjoyed The Martian and Station Eleven, but this book is more of a drama than sci-fi. Slow moving book more about the dysfunctions of the unlikeable characters than a mission to Mars. Plodded along until it's unsatisfactory ending. Narration was very good and most likely the only reason I finished the book.

If you are looking for a replica of The Martian or Station Eleven, that is not this book. Instead, this book is an exploration of the humans involved in a Martian space simulation, whether by being the selected astronaut or one of the family members waiting while the 17 month Mars simulation progresses. Whether from the past or present, these people and their stories, their frailties and strengths, their hopes and worries for themselves, earth and humankind; they will touch your soul. I think if you know that going in you'll enjoy your travels through this beautiful, beautiful book.
