Marvellous book by Andy Weir - read it on holiday. Brilliant.
Of course, now being made into a film.
Definitely worth a read if you haven't already.
Sounds interesting Queenie, care to enlarge (without spoilers ) on the plot?
About to ask the same thing. Is it funny, sci fi or serious?
Its funny and serious and really well researched - it is about a Nasa Astronaut:
I知 stranded on Mars.
I have no way to communicate with Earth.
I知 in a Habitat designed to last 31 days.
If the Oxygenator breaks down, I値l suffocate. If the Water Reclaimer breaks down, I値l die of thirst. If the Hab breaches, I値l just kind of explode. If none of those things happen, I値l eventually run out of food and starve to death.
So yeah. I知 screwed.
Thanks, Queenie, sounds very interesting.
