Martian: A Novel / Andy Weir

Call number: FIC WEI

During a deadly sandstorm on the red planet, the crew of a groundbreaking mission to Mars is forced to evacuate. In the chaos, botanist and mechanical engineer Mark Watney is struck by flying debris. Left for dead on a barren wasteland of a planet, Watney battles to survive despite impossible odds. Though bodily concerns, like his dwindling food supply, could easily end him, the soul-crushing loneliness of deep space is just as brutal a foe. But Weir gives his protagonist a sharp sense of humor, as crucial as anything else in his fight for survival, and key to keeping the reader fully locked in. This science-powered thriller is a page-turner of the highest order. See all of the Best Fiction Books of 2014. (From B&N)
