This book was a book about an astronaut who got stuck in space as his crew was forced to abandon him. The majority of the book was about how the astronaut ,who was named Mark Watney, survived on Mars without starving or getting killed by other things. I loved how he was able to grow crops on Mars and was also able to get back to Earth even though he had to go through numerous difficulties. A lesson this taught me was that one should never give up, as Mark never gave up even though it seemed impossible that he was going to survive. The word choice of the book was also very interesting and also helped create imagery and helped me visualize what was happening in my brain. This book is one of my favorite books and I would recommend it for sure. However, only people over the age of 12 should read this book as there are several cuss words that are not appropriate for kids who are below this age.
