The Martian Andy Weir

the martianThis is a really captivating book! The central character is an astronaut trapped alone on Mars after an ill-fated manned Mars landing. This might put you off (“That sounds like sci-fi, I don’t read sci-fi”, you’re thinking). Please do give it a chance! The book started off as a self-published e-book and quickly gained such a following that the author was awarded a six-figure book contract!

Well-written and extremely convincing, the feel is that of reading a thrilling non-fiction account of a space mission. There is plenty of science and not a little humour- the main character is practical and very appealing. A quick read which will have you racing to finish it.
