Selected for common reading at North Lake College Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read 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

After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive—and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive

Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death

The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plain-old "human error" are much more likely to kill him first

But Mark isn't ready to give up yet

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?
