Synopsis

The Sunday Times bestseller - Robinson Crusoe on Mars, a survival story for the 21st Century. I'm stranded on Mars. I have no way to communicate with Earth. I'm in a Habitat designed to last 31 days. If the Oxygenator breaks down, I'll suffocate. If the Water Reclaimer breaks down, I'll die of thirst. If the Hab breaches, I'll just kind of explode. If none of those things happen, I'll eventually run out of food and starve to death. So yeah. I'm screwed. The Martian is featured in Richard & Judy's Autumn Book Club 2014.

ANDY WEIR built a two-decade career as a software engineer until the success of his first published novel, The Martian, allowed him to live out his dream of writing full-time. He is a lifelong space nerd and a devoted hobbyist of such subjects as relativistic physics, orbital mechanics, and the history of manned spaceflight. He also mixes a mean cocktail. He lives in California.

Customer Reviews

The first thirty odd pages are essentially about a man growing potatoes on Mars. Worry not though as one the horticulture is out of the way, the story is a gripping and engaging romp. Porn for science geeks, but thoroughly enjoyable for all.

Mars has fascinated humankind for centuries. And with ever-advancing technologies and the captivating images sent back from the rovers – not to mention the one-way mission planned, however optimistically, for 2024 – the Red Planet has never felt so close. Cue The Martian. After a freak accident leaves him stranded and alone, Mark Watney is convinced he will be the first human to die on Mars. His courage and resourcefulness will be put to the ultimate test as he races time and failing systems to survive. Unputdownable.
