The Martian Book Review
Mark Watney is stuck and all alone on Mars after his crewmates abort their mission because of a dangerous sandstorm, leaving him behind because he was presumed dead when hit by debris and knocked away. He barely survived, but everyone else thinks he's dead. With his skills, wits, and little amounts of supplies, he must find a way to communicate with NASA and ultimately get out of Mars before he runs out of food and supplies.
The Martian is a novel that was published in 2011 under his own name but the rights were later purchased by Crown Publishing and re-released in 2014.
I read the book over the summer of 2015 and watched the movie a month ago.
I personally like this book because of all of the suspense created when Mark Watney faces a conflict. For me, if there is not a lot of suspense in a book, it gets boring and doesn't interest me. However, this book really kept me reading with all of the suspension evenly spaced apart throughout.
Overall, this is a very exciting book to read and packed with tons of action and suspense. This book is a great read for any type of reader and especially for avid science fiction lovers.
