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?

    For those people who say it's boring, forget them. They don't like the scientific detail. This was a MAGNIFICENT book. I don't think I've ever read anything like it. The only thing that I didn't get was the swearing, there was a lot of it altogether.
  • Best sci-fi

    This is the best sci-fi I've ever read
  • Instant classic

    By Mr. Sheppy
    The exceptional nature of this book can't be understated. With this single novel, Andy Weir became one of the great science fiction writers. Even if he never writes again, he has that achievement on the board. Suffice it to say, I love this book. The science and the excitement play off each other brilliantly. Fantastic.

    By Mrsmac09
    My niece read this and recommended it and I LOVED it! Lots of NASA, space and science stuff I was not familiar with but you know enough And have explanations of everything that you know what is going on. Super intense but such a quick read because you can't put it down! So much better than the movie but both book and movie are great and entertaining!

    From the start the author pulls you into this world. The voice actor creates the character of Mark so well you can not help but root for him. Wonderful book and wonderful performance.
