In the near future, an astronaut is stranded on Mars when his crewmates leave him for dead. In a race against time and the elements, the astronaut struggles to stay alive, contact Earth, and get home. This was a fun, suspenseful, and well-paced book, although it occasionally suffers from stereotypical dialogue and overexplained scientific problem-solving. Recommended for science fiction fans.
