Excellent! What a thrill ride of a novel. Very engaging and plausible, the story is very well researched and believable. Obvouisly Mr. Weir did a lot of work getting this book to be as realistic as it is. Working out how things might work on a future Mars mission and then figuring out how to jury-rig (or "MacGyver") all those solutions must have taken a lot of time, study, and a very good imagination. As a result, the reader can be sure that the story, situations, and solutions are very real. And the mostly first person narration puts the reader right there on Mars with Watney. All together, it's a book that one cannot put down. Even if you're not a science fiction fan, this is a human drama that anyone can relate to. If you're wondering if this is a book you should read, don't wonder any longer but purchase and read it; you'll be happy you did.
