The Martian by Andy Weir

The MartianThis book is amazing – and so is it’s back story. Self-published web serial turns into blockbuster. This is sci-fi at it’s best, even if the science was too advanced for me at times. It’s a real MacGyver story, complete with a snarky protagonist and plenty of pop culture references. I couldn’t put it down and tore through it in one day. Great suspense and monologue (since the protagonist is talking to himself 80% of the time). If you ever dreamed of being an astronaut or just enjoy a good suspenseful sci-fi adventure, this is the book for you.
