The MartianThe Martian by Andy Weir

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Mark Watney is a botanist and engineer who is stranded on Mars. His crew, heading back to Earth, thinks he's dead. Watney turns out to be a McGyver. This novel documents his struggles to survive and figure out if a way home is even possible. Watney is a great character and much of the book is in the form of his log. There is some impressive research and science in this book; I cannot speak as to whether it's accurate or realistic, but it feels plausible and very real. A thrilling work of science fiction.
