I picked up The Martian by Andy Weir (2014) in an airport the other day when I was desperate. It is about an astronaut who is marooned on Mars and his fights for survival. Its an engineers view on how men can do things.
I enjoyed the first half of the book but all of near death calamities got to be boring. One thing really missing from the book is the presence of Mars. Except for the lack of atmosphere the story could have taken place on Earth, IMHO.
I'll only give it a 2/5 but I didn't like Ender's Game either.
