When astronauts blast off from the planet Mars, they leave behind Mark Watney (Matt Damon), presumed dead after a fierce storm. With only a meager amount of supplies, the stranded visitor must utilize his wits and spirit to find a way to survive on the hostile planet. Meanwhile, back on Earth, members of NASA and a team of international scientists work tirelessly to bring him home, while his crew mates hatch their own plan for a daring rescue mission.

If the oxygenator breaks down, I get suffocated. If the water catcher breaks, I die of thirst. If HAB cracks, I’m just going to explode. If none of these things happen, at some point I will run out of food and starve to death. So yeah, I’m on the shit.

The book Martian is everything you wanted from a short story. The book is also the book behind the movie “The Martin”

Think of the book as, Apollo 13…. On mars…… BEST SPACE ACCIDENTS.

The book is about an astronaut who is left on Mars when his crew thought he was killed by a sandstorm. Now he is stranded on Mars, and must take up the fight against Mars, the lifeless planet.

The first pages he asks many questions to himself, and answers them himself. Mark Watney who is the book follows, was the first people to go to Mars, and now he is probably also the last person to die there. Mark is now stranded alone on Mars, and gets to avoid the loneliness, and madness. If he speaks to the video journal, we know him best when he speaks to the journal.

Andy Weir who wrote the book. Started writing science fiction books in his twenties and publishing his work on his website. He was a former computer programmer.

This book is not for discussion. I can not think of a more suspenseful, humorous and ingenious book, unforgettable. 5/5. No doubt
