Review: The Martian

The Martian The Martian by Andy Weir
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this book. It was very detailed technically about a trip to Mars gone bad. But Mark, the main character endears us to himself with his ingenuity.

Some type of accident happened while on their Mars mission.  The commander, believing that Mark has died, gives the order to evacuate the planet. When Mark finally revived he realized that his mission crew members had left for their main ship and left him on his own on the planet with some life preserving tools but with no communication system or any way of letting anyone know that he had survived.

An excellent read and also an affirmation that we should never give up hope and should always try our very best no matter how hard the circumstances.
