The Martian by Andy Weir
After a freak accident during a mission, Mark Watney is stranded on Mars. No one knows he is still alive and it’s four years until the next crew comes to Mars. Watney has no way to tell anyone he’s alive much less enough food to last him until he could be rescued.
It sounds a little bleak and depressing…but trust me, this is an awesome book!!! I’m not normally one for survival tales (too stressful or too boring) but I loved this book! The humor and the suspense had an almost perfect balance. Nothing got so overly dramatic that I wanted to stop reading. Actually the entire time that I was reading this book, I NEVER WANTED TO PUT IT DOWN!!! Now I’m recommending it to everyone. Plus, it’s being made into a movie by Ridley Scott and going to star Matt Damon as Mark Watney. So go minions!!! Go forth and read this awesome book!!!
