The Martian is by Andy Weir. A mission to Mars is scrubbed due to a dangerous storm; as they evacuate, one of the astronauts is struck by flying debris and presumed dead. Only Mark Watney is alive. The story is about Watney's fight to survive as NASA attempts to come up with a way to rescue him. A fantastic science fiction novel! Even if you are not a scifi lover, you will love this story of a man's fight for survival against insurmountable odds.
