Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars.

Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there.

After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive—and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive.

Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plain-old "human error" are much more likely to kill him first.

But Mark isn't ready to give up yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills—and a relentless, dogged refusal to quit—he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next. Will his resourcefulness be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him?

4.0 A Joyful Romp on the Solar System's Rustiest Planet
Andy Weir's 2014 science fiction novel apparently had its film rights sold before it was ever formally published. It became an Oscar-nominated Ridley Scott flick, racking in, among other things, hundreds of millions in gross and Matt FUCKING Damon. (In the spirit of the novel, I've decided to tempor...

4.5 Nimm das, Mars!
Andy Weirs Karriere ist ein Märchen der Schriftstellerei. Sein Debütroman „The Martian“ wurde ursprünglich von allen Verlagen abgelehnt, weshalb Weir das Buch 2011 als Selfpublisher veröffentlichte. Er bot es kostenlos auf seiner Website an. Als Fans ihn baten, eine Kindle-Version zu erstellen, verl...

5.0 The Martian
I finished this in a day. I started it yesterday morning, then stayed up late to finish it last night. I don't really do that anymore with full-length novels. (Not that I don't want to, but life usually gets in the way, so I'm glad I started this on a Friday.) I don't think there's much point in me ...
