    1. This book strikes me as what would result if Monty Python had directed The Martian picture Eric Idle playing Mark Watney If you re not a fan of that particular brand of British humor, then this story s genius will undoubtedly escape you I laughed myself silly several times at the absolutely ludicrous characters, situations, and scenes You wouldn t expect that such a silly, outrageous premise would be brilliant, but it is As someone who worked for NASA for over twenty years, I think it takes cons [...]

    2. I read a review copy of this , and found it amusing and entertaining, if not entirely to my taste.The Worst Man on Mars of the title is one Flint Dugdale, a somewhat yobbish, rude and arrogant Yorshireman, chosen by the British Public to be the part of the first mission to Mars via the always reliable medium of a reality TV show Due to unforseen circumstances, including a possible murder, he becomes commander of the mission, a position he is completely unsuitable and unprepared for Meanwhile on [...]

    3. A ship full of dysfunctional people travel to Mars When they arrive, things are not as they should be The robots that were supposed to have built their Mars base are inept and badly behind schedule Most of what they have constructed is out of spec Ceilings are too low, air seals don t seal, fittings aren t fitted And then the new human arrivals find out that the food that should be stockpiled there isn t, and that they have WWII German scientists and the 12 foot tall chickens for neighbors There [...]

    4. I read an early version of this many months ago, so the current version may have evolved since I first encountered it as a series of increasingly silly and entertaining installments.I d previously read Mark Roman s The Ultimate Inferior Beings , which was brilliant lunacy, so I was expecting something similar here I wasn t disappointed It plays very strongly on British humour that kind of wry pride in our own mediocrity and both the comedy and the characters will appeal to anyone who s ever enjo [...]

    5. So I was selected to review this book and I m so glad that I decided to read it.First of all the plot was very original and very funny.The robot clan are really funny and it was really interesting to read a book from a robots point of view, I ve never read a book from that point of view before The science behind the story was very interesting.I love all the subtle references to Star Wars and retro movies book is set in the year 2029 such as Apollo 13 etc.I really liked how all of the chapter hea [...]

    6. No question, this is one of the most entertaining books I ve read in a long time.Initially, I thought there was distinct similarity to the Red Dwarf television programme which wouldn t have been a bad thing as such, what with me being a huge fan since series one, back in the day.But as the pages and chapters turned, it became obvious that subtly referencing various sci fi TV programmes and celebrities from all ages was the effective modus operandi of the writers, Mark Roman Corben Duke It s very [...]

    8. This book is silly, and I don t know if I get the humor of it Sometimes, there are some pretty funny parts, but no laugh out loud moments happened for me I didn t like the main character and I think that s the point of the book However, I will be completely honestI didn t finish this book I didn t understand it, and it wasn t funny enough to hold my attention The story moved slowly, and I made it about 200 pages in, and I felt like not much really happened The part of the story that I did want t [...]

    9. If you like clever puns and a screwball narrative reminiscent of Jasper Fforde s Thursday Next series, this is the book for you.The characters were all so well drawn that it was hard to pick a favorite individual, but the AI robots definitely were my favorite group The pinnacle of British engineering , they re brilliant as well as dumb as posts But they have knowledge without context to temper it and have developed human like personalities with human like flaws, so they re both endearing and dan [...]

    10. This type of book is not normally one that I would read, but having friends who have enjoyed bookish this genre including Red Dwarf, I decided I would give this one a read honestly because of the title I was entertained by the characters, puns and witty references that accompanied them It s been awhile since I have read a book where I laughed out loud, a lot I would recommend this book to everyone, but especially those who don t normally read this genre of book It s not often that I come across [...]

    11. Mark Roman and Corben Duke provide a humorous approach to the colonization of Mars in The Worst Man on Mars This science fiction book includes murder and mayhem that revolves around the antics of Flint Dugdale Flint wins a seat on Britain s Mayflower III, and plans to be the first man on Mars The constant flow of errors on the mission between Flint, the crew, and the robots on Mars, had me questioning if there would even be survivors.The story was written in many different points of view, which [...]

    12. I very much enjoyed reading The Worst Man on Mars I am usually a mystery reader, but was looking for something different to read I found it, and loved it The story itself had several different viewpoints, which I think always keeps you interested The humor was first rate, and I especially loved HarVard the super computer s different holograms There were lots of pop culture and literary references that really brought the story to life.The main hero Dugdale was fun to hate, as much as I loved litt [...]

    13. Although science fiction isn t my favorite genre, I do usually enjoy them This book however I could not read thru it It confused me by using robot speak and kept making me get lost in what was going on I did not enjoy what I did read of this book Unless you like reading codes in translations, I do not recommend this book.

    14. Worst Man on MarsI received a copy in exchange for a fair review Worst Man On Mars is a science fiction humor novel about the first manned mission to Mars Commander Flint Dugdale is the mission s bumbling, rotund, crude leader The antics of Dugdale and his crew are told from several different perspectives The dialog is often written with a Yorkshire accent which makes it a bit hard to understand at time Overall the story was entertaining and there are definitely several laugh out loud moments.

    15. I found this to be a highly entertaining read Flint Dugdale has been selected to lead a crew of inept misfits on the world s first manned mission to Mars The characters are lively if a little stereotyped and memorable, with the robots in particular stealing the show, they were very well written.Fans of writers such as Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett will appreciate this light hearted humorous story.

    16. This is like Red Dwarf meets Benny Hill by way of a Monty Python skit It s completely bonkers Its references to UK pop culture and the assorted personalities that populate that island, may not play well beyond the British Isles But I, having grown up in Yorkshire, had a blast with this.

    17. This was a romp Very funny Excellent characterisations with some memorable parodies and laugh out loud moments.We follow Flint Dugdale as mission commander on a journey to Mars and it s anything but uneventful From Dugdale s northern enthusiasm to Zak s street talk and Harold s poetry not to mention the charming Mr Darcy as we have never seen him before we re kept on the precipice of laughter throughout.The robots were the best Hilarious Angelica from Rugrats is alive and living on Mars in the r [...]

    18. Zany, silly hilarious, call it what you like but this book is a riot Possibly the most incompetent space crew ever to don a shiny suit and bulbous helmet are heading for Mars, led by their oafish captain Flint Dugdale, easily the most unsuitable captain of a space vessel Jean Luc Picard he aint he only got the job because Stallion larger sponsored him after he won a reality contest But that s alright because the colonists are being cared for in a state of the art base, purpose built by a team of [...]
