Description

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 forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone 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.

Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plain-old "human error" are much more likely to kill him first.

But Mark isn't ready to give up yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills—and a relentless, dogged refusal to quit—he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next. Will his resourcefulness be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him?

    Estupendo relato de Ciencia Ficción, que me mantuvo pegada al libro, alegrándome cuando Mark encontraba la solución a algo y sufriendo cuando algo salía mal. Es increíble la forma en que se aferra a la vida y acabe adorando su sarcástico buen humor. Este marxiano me atrapó desde que comencé a leerlo. Muy recomendable!
  • A must read!

    I read this book sandwiched between two viewings of the movie and man, was or worth it. Each chapter was incredibly well written, and I particularly enjoyed his ‘origin story’-esque letter at the end. Bravo!

    This is such a good book, I've read it three times already. The first time I read it was about a month before the movie came out. Movie was good, but of course....."the book is so much better". Andy Weir gets a lot of things right about being on Mars. The book flows along perfectly and the back and forth of NASA and Watney logs keep both ends of the ordeal in sync. Looking forward to another great sci-fi from Andy Weir.
  • Great!

    For those people who say it's boring, forget them. They don't like the scientific detail. This was a MAGNIFICENT book. I don't think I've ever read anything like it. The only thing that I didn't get was the swearing, there was a lot of it altogether.
  • Best sci-fi

    The exceptional nature of this book can't be understated. With this single novel, Andy Weir became one of the great science fiction writers. Even if he never writes again, he has that achievement on the board. Suffice it to say, I love this book. The science and the excitement play off each other brilliantly. Fantastic.
  • Sientific and I couldn't put it down
