"A team of astronauts land on Mars and when the crew is forced to leave unexpectedly, the engineer is left for dead.   Except, he isn't; and now he is stranded on a most inhospitable planet. Thus begins Mark Watney's incredible solo struggle to survive.  Smart, funny and exciting, the interplay between science, ingenuity, and suspense make The Martian a terrifically compelling read."
