Read 2 times. Last read December 27, 2014 to January 5, 2015.

I kept seeing this book on everyone's bookshelves, so I bought it to see what all the hype was about. The first few nights I fell asleep reading all the acronyms, but once I got to page 50 or so I couldn't put the book down. It's mainly about an astronaut, Mark Watney, being stranded on Mars. The book is cleverly formatted to keep you moving through the story. I definitely recommend this book! (There is a bit of strong language in the book, but it makes complete sense whenever it's used.) I'd probably cuss too if I got left on Mars.
