The Martian

The Martian

Author: Andy Weir Format: Hardback Release Date: 13/02/2014

So that's the situation. I'm stranded on Mars. I have no way to communicate with Earth. Everyone thinks I'm dead. 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 has been made into a movie starring Matt Damon see the trailer below.
