Description

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?

Customer Reviews

Great book!

Read this during a long overseas flight and it was great. Definitely one of the best speculative science fiction books I have ever read. This story exemplifies human nature and how the spirit (along with a lot of brains) will over come insurmountable odds as long as you never give up. And there are no magical mccguffins, logic and resourcefulness are the tools that save the day. Every fix is based in sound mechanics and scientific theory. You love all the characters by the end and are rooting for The Martian the whole way through!

Fantastic

Sample is great! I can't wait to buy the full version!
