Reseña del editor:

The Sunday Times bestseller - Robinson Crusoe on Mars, a survival story for the 21st Century. I'm stranded on Mars. I have no way to communicate with Earth. I'm in a Habitat designed to last 31 days. If the Oxygenator breaks down, I'll suffocate. If the Water Reclaimer breaks down, I'll die of thirst. If the Hab breaches, I'll just kind of explode. If none of those things happen, I'll eventually run out of food and starve to death. So yeah. I'm screwed. The Martian is featured in Richard & Judy's Autumn Book Club 2014.

Críticas:

"An impressively geeky debut...the technical details keep the story relentlessly precise and the suspense ramped up. And really, how can anyone not root for a regular dude to prove the U-S-A still has the Right Stuff?"
--"Entertainment Weekly
"
"One of the best thrillers I've read in a long time. It feels so real it could almost be nonfiction, and yet it has the narrative drive and power of a rocket launch. This is Apollo 13 times ten."
--Douglas Preston, #1 "New York Times" bestselling author of "Impact" and" Blasphemy"
"A book I just couldn't put down! It has the very rare combination of a good, original story, interestingly real characters and fascinating technical accuracy...reads like "MacGyver" meets "Mysterious Island."
--Astronaut Chris Hadfield, Commander of the International Space Station and author of "An Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth"
"The best book I've read in ages. Clear your schedule before you crack the seal. This story will take your breath away faster than a hull breech. Smart, funny, and white-knuckle intense, "The Martian "is everything you want from a novel."
--Hugh Howey, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Wool"

--Ernest Cline, "New York Times "bestselling author of "Ready Player One"
"Gripping...shapes up like Defoe's "Robinson Crusoe "as written by someone brighter."
--Larry Niven, multiple Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author of the "Ringworld "series and "Lucifer's Hammer

Buchbeschreibung Random House LCC US Nov 2014, 2014. Taschenbuch. Buchzustand: Neu. 203x130x27 mm. Neuware - 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 - Hugo Awards, film adaptation won for Best Dramatic Presentation - Campbell Award for Best New Writer, Andy Weir - MMQB, Holiday Gift Guide: Books 387 pp. Englisch. Artikel-Nr. 9780553418026
