VIcious - V.E. Schwab

Wow, coincidences: between this and The Martian I'm fortuitously absorbed in science applied in extreme situations, like surviving on Mars or surviving to be an EO (...everyday experiences, surely!). Never happened before, so cool, but..for the second case, The Martian, I'm afraid I can't  follow it with the audiobook version. Sometimes I just can't understand what's really going on because I don't know the meaning of specific words used in the story, given that I'm not English and I'm not specialized in English in my studies. I feel ignorant, but what I have to do! :/ I'm thinking about interrupting The Martian and waiting to have the ebook, and in the meanwhile I'll choose Burial Rites for the audiobook of the moment. :)
