The Martian

by Andy Weir

Science Fiction

The Martian Synopsis

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 Sunday Times Bestseller and Richard and Judy Book Club Selection behind the major new film from Ridley Scott starring Matt Damon and Jessica Chastain.

The Martian Press Reviews

'Andy Weir's masterpiece!' -- Tom Hanks Twitter

'Watney's gallows humour and his brushes with death as he uses every ounce of his intelligence and astronaut's training to claw his way out of the pit will have you laughing and gasping by turns. I read this book in a weekend. I didn't think I'd have the time to - but Andy Weir's edge-of-the-seat storytelling didn't leave me any choice.' -- Richard Madeley, Richard and Judy Book Club

'Andy Weir's terrific 'lost in space novel is an absolute page turner from first to last
... Tautly-written, full of extraordinary and fascinating detail about life in a frozen red desert so far from home, The Martian is one of the best thrillers either of us has read in years. Highly recommended.' -- Judy Finnigan, Richard and Judy Book Club

'The best book I've read in ages. Clear your schedule before you crack the seal. This story will take your breath away faster than a hull breech. Smart, funny, and white-knuckle intense, The Martian is everything you want from a novel.' -- Hugh Howey New York Times bestselling author of Wool

'Accomplished...believable but suspenseful as [Watney] battles against the odds for survival' The Guardian

About Andy Weir

ANDY WEIR has always been fascinated by space travel and like most kids growing up wanted to be an astronaut. Instead, he wrote a book - The Martian - which he self published on Amazon in 2012. It went on to receive 1,500 reviews on Amazon, averaging 4.7 out of 5 stars, with similar success on Goodreads. The film rights have been bought by Fox. Andy hopes this will be the first of many trips into space.
