“6 days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first few people to walk on the surface of Mars. Now, he’s sure he’ll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone without any way to even signal Earth that he’s not dead – and even if he may get word out, his supplies will be gone well before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won’t have to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plain old “human error” are more likely to kill him first.
But Mark isn’t willing to give up hope yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills – along with a relentless, dogged refusal to give up – he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle following the next. Will his resourcefulness be adequate to overcome the impossible martian odds against him?”
