Seis días atrás el astronauta Mark Watney se convirtió en uno de los primeros hombres en caminar por la superficie de Marte.

Ahora está seguro de que será el primer hombre en morir allí. La tripulación de la nave en que viajaba se ve obligada a evacuar el planeta a causa de una tormenta de polvo, dejando atrás a Mark tras darlo por muerto. Pero él está vivo, y atrapado a millones de kilómetros de cualquier ser humano, sin posibilidad de enviar señales a la Tierra.
De todos modos, si lograra establecer conexión, moriría mucho antes de que el rescate llegara. Sin embargo, Mark no se da por vencido; armado con su ingenio, sus habilidades y sus conocimientos sobre botánica, se enfrentará a obstáculos aparentemente insuperables. Por suerte, el sentido del humor resultará ser su mayor fuente de fuerza.

Obstinado en seguir con vida, incubará un plan absolutamente demencial para ponerse en contacto con la NASA.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

A mission to Mars. A freak accident. One man’s struggle to survive.

Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars.

Now, he’s sure he’ll be the first person to die there.

After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate the planet while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded on Mars’ surface, 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 years before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, Mark won’t have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plain-old “human error” are much more likely to kill him first.

But Mark’s not ready to quit. Armed with nothing but his ingenuity, his engineering skills—and a gallows sense of humor that proves to be his greatest source of strength—he embarks on a dogged quest to stay alive. As he confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next, Mark begins to let himself believe he might make it off the planet alive. But Mars has plenty of surprises in store for him yet.
