The Martian by Andy Weir

The MartianAmazing, very fun, and very worth working through the scientific/mechanical aspects in my opinion–and I am mechanically challenged, to say the least! A fascinating (and by the way educational) fiction about an astronaut left behind by accident on Mars, this was written by a young man who first programmed for a national laboratory at the age of fifteen–what a whiz! But his writing is very humorous, characters are varied, astro-facts come at you like an asteroid storm, and it was hard for me to put down.
