The Martian Book Cover The Martian

"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. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills--and a relentless, dogged refusal to quit--he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next. Will his resourcefulness be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him?"

From Chris' post: Weir writes a tight sci-fi thriller that’s hard to put down (it was a quick two day read for me). What sets The Martian apart is how simple human errors are the greatest driver of the plot.
