This novel chronicles the adventures of astronaut Mark Watney while stranded on Mars. He is forced to put his skills as a botanist and mechanical engineer to the test while attempting to survive on a planet nearly 140 million miles away from Earth. His journey is no small feat and this book makes for a suspenseful read. I enjoyed this novel very much and would recommend this to anyone who enjoys space and math. This novel also has a film adaptation that will be released in October 2015 starring Matt Damon and Jessica Chastain.
