The Martian

A Novel. Winner of the Alex Awards - YALSA 2014, Indies Choice Award 2015 and the RUSA Reading List Genre Award 2014

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?
From the Hardcover edition.
Rezension
" Brilliant ... a celebration of human ingenuity [and] the purest example of real-science sci-fi for many years ... Utterly compelling." (Wall Street Journal)
" Terrific stuff, a crackling good read that devotees of space travel will devour like candy ... succeeds on several levels and for a variety of reasons, not least of which is its surprising plausibility." (USA Today)
" An impressively geeky debut ...the technical details keep the story relentlessly precise and the suspense ramped up. And really, how can anyone not root for a regular dude to prove the U-S-A still has the Right Stuff?" (Entertainment Weekly)
