The Martian                                                              

Author:  Andy Weir            Science Fiction               2014

 

So technically this story is science fiction because it is set in the near future when the US has manned missions to Mars. However, don't let that stop you from reading this riveting story - think of this more as a futuristic Robinson Crusoe in space. The author does a commendable job of keeping the science out of the way of the story!

After an accident "kills" him and forces the rest of the crew to evacuate, Mark Watney is left to find a way to survive on Mars until someone at NASA realizes he is still alive and can come rescue him. Fortunately, Mark excels in out of the box thinking and finds unique ways to use the tools at hand.

 This light-hearted look at his efforts to make it past D-day is so compelling you won't want to put it down.
