I began this book back on December 7 last year, and I must report that it is one of the finest science fiction books that I have read in years. The realism shown in this book shows that the author did a tremendous job in researching and making each situation in this book entirely plausible. There are numerous other reviews that spell out the story-line and I will include several of them below. This is a 5-star book if you have any interest in science fiction. One more thing, the tenacity of the main character, Mark Wadney, in this book is and hopefully will be a tremendous motivation to me in the future.
