Andy WeirThe Martian — Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he’s sure he’ll be the first person to die there… After a dust storm nearly kills him, and his crew evacuates thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded, with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive­ and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive…but Mark isn’t ready to give up yet.
