The Martian is the inspirational story of one man's struggle to survive after being accidentals left behind on Mars. Faced with dwindeling rations and no communications he must improvise to stay alive until the next mission - four years !
Mark is one of the best characters I've encountered in quite sometime not only is he intelligent but he's damn funny. You'll immediately be sucked in by his charm and humanizing story of courage against insurmountable odds. A wonderfully written story that even a diehard pessimist will love.
