Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he's alive - and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plainold "human error" are much more likely to kill him first.

Highly enjoyable story. Good narrator, captured the sense of many different people through the voice acting. Suspenseful and exciting story.

Nice little teen witch story, plot was a bit predictable, but well read. The film of the first book had more heart and better dialogue, which is unfortunate.
