I just finished reading The Martian by Andy Weir and this is one of the most enjoyable books I’ve read in a while! The pacing is so intense, so well done that it is very difficult to set down. This is one that I recommend you get ahold of as quickly as you can and enjoy!
The story begins with an astronaut accidentally abandoned on Mars and presumed dead. From there it starts to build and leave you on the edge of your seat page after page.
This one is truly well worth your time. It’s available for Kindle right now for only three dollars. Get it from there, or a library, or a book store, but get it and enjoy!
I have not been in the Scifi reading mood for the last few years (I read only medieval fantasy) but this one got so many great reviews and won the Goodreads award on top of it, I am rather curious and might give it a shot.
