I’ll just say that Andy Weir’s book The Martian is the most fun read I’ve had in the last year or so. I’m not to the end yet, but I’ve been simultaneously on tenterhooks while laughing. I’ve wanted to play hooky from work to finish it. You should read it.
(And if you haven’t read John W Campbell’s The Moon is Hell, then that’s another great one. A similar problem, but set on the moon. Written in 1950, so it’s a bit dated, but still pretty darned good).
