Title of the Week

The Martian
by Andy Weir
 
"The main character, Mark Watney, is a biologist/mechanical engineer with enough witty sarcasm to balance out all the problem solving required for being stranded on Mars. Weir kept the pace up, and I had a hard time putting it down. Mark faced so many setbacks that I was kept questioning if he would survive."
