The Martian

Today I finished reading the book The Martian by Andy Weir. It was a phenomenal read and I highly recommend it.

The story centers around Mark Watney, an astronaut left behind on Mars by his five crew mates due to a freak accident.

This book kept my attention with every page. The seemingly accurate scientific details, Watney’s goofy sense of humor, and the extreme conditions he finds himself in and his incredible ingenuity to work his way through it all make this book a pleasure to read. I couldn’t recommend it more.
