Review
Unless you are a science fanatic, you will enjoy this book more if you skim over all the science sections which take up approximately 60 percent of this story. Regardless, it is a fascinating story about an astronaut who is presumed dead on Mars and left behind by his fellow astronauts who have to make a hasty retreat from the planet. The book chronicles his attempts to survive. The last 100 pages are spellbinding and will have you on the edge of your seat, just as the movie Apollo 13 did. If you remember how you felt near the end of that movie, you will experience that feeling at the end of the book. I recommend it as a good read.

All I really have to say about this book is that it was much too “wordy” with a lot of superfluous dialogue. I would have enjoyed it more if it was a short novella or even a short story.
