During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet. With only meager supplies, he must draw upon his ingenuity, wit and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive. Millions of miles away, NASA and a team of international scientists work tirelessly to bring "the Martian" home, while his crewmates concurrently plot a daring, if not impossible, rescue mission.
I like both book and the movie. This is the case when the book was not much better than the movie. It has slight differences and I found it much drier. The scientific stuff was explained in so many details that I believe I was a pleasure read for boys. My father and brother loved it. I however preferred the movie, since where were unbelievably beautiful martial scenery. The plot was really nicely developed, there were no obvious flops and the story kept the reader and viewer on the edge of their seat. great adventure with a lot of humor and self-reflection. I would recommend it to everyone as a good inspiring book/movie.
