The Martian by Andy Weir

The Martian

Space travel is a dream for most people. Being among the stars, travelling to new and exciting planets, and is something Mark Watney is a part of. He’s part of a team that’s sent up to Mars to do tests and experiments. When something goes horribly wrong, he’s stranded on Mars with little resources. Not enough resources to last him until the next mission can pick him up. Dealing with the harsh Mars climate and natural disasters, and minimal supplies, Mark must find a way to stay alive until the next landing.

The Martian is packed full of adventure, science, and the “what if” we’ve all been thinking. This award-winning book is written for adults with teen appeal. This book is available as an audiobook and as an eBook download as well.
