The MartianThe Martian by Andy Weir
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4.5 stars...If I were a guy I'd likely give it 5+ but the technical jargon was far beyond my comprehension. Still I enjoyed the story, loved the humor...laughed out loud several times...and even learned a few things. Mark Watney's irreverent cheekiness, unfailing optimism, and determination to survive the unsurvivable earns him my vote as the man I'd most like by my side when the world comes to a halting and apocalyptic end. Plus the man know his stuff, and I'd trust him with my life a hundred times over. Favorite quote:
“Yes, of course duct tape works in a near-vacuum. Duct tape works anywhere. Duct tape is magic and should be worshiped.”
