Title: “The Martian”
Author: Andy Weir
Blurb: “After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive — and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive.”
Review: “I don’t really read that much, but after reading The Martian I’m beginning to think that maybe I should pick up reading as a hobby.”

Footnote: Yes, yes, explorers, adventure, the New Frontier. Speaking of which, the European (and European-descended) track record with various forms of colonization ain’t exactly encouraging.
