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.

Having seen the movie I knew I liked the storyline, but this audio version exceeded my expectations. Really enjoyable, with some great chuckles to be had thanks to a great script. Nice work!

I listened to this very version of A Christmas Carol with my father every Christmas Eve, but had not heard it in years. Memories came flooding back, and I am delighted to have discovered it again.
