Astronaut Mark Watney becomes one of the first people to walk on Mars, and may be the first to die there.
After a dust storm nearly kills him and his crew evacuates leaving him for dead, Mark is alone. Stranded, he cannot even let anyone know he is alive; there is no way to communicate this information to Earth. He knows there is no way he will survive on the limited supplies he has or until a rescue team lands on Mars.
Mark is an engineer and a botanist, and not ready to give up yet. He tries to grow food and make a plan to contact NASA on Earth, all because he wants to get off Mars alive. Mars has other surprises for him though! Will he overcome the odds against him?
A must read book that is difficult to put down; a real page turner. An amazing read for adults and anyone interested in outer space travel. This is the best book I have read in a while!
