Following a sandstorm on Mars, astronaut Mark Watney was left by his crew believing he has died on the red planet. With nothing more than his ingenuity and humor, he’ll have to find a way to survive until the next mission to Mars which could take him home. That’s if he can first find a way to contact Earth. Andy Weir’s effort to create a novel that stays as accurate scientifically while trying to convey the drama and gallow humor of trying to survive on an alien planet when even a simple miscalculation can spell disaster shines brilliantly in this book.
