An unfortunate and unforeseen event causes Mark Watney to be left behind on Mars. He has to figure out a way to survive for as long as possible with the limited supplies left behind. Will he be able to make it until the next Mars mission is launched?
This book had me laughing, which I didn't expect considering it is about a man being left on Mars to fend for himself until (if possible) he can be rescued. Watney's humor and positive attitude while trapped on Mars and enduring very harsh conditions really kept the story interesting and the science and math palpable. Well, I liked those parts, too.
Really enjoyed this one. Now I have to wait for the hubby to read so we can watch the movie.
