If science bores you, then this is probably not for you. As in the film, Mark Watney gets stranded on Mars and the novel deals with how he survives, using his scientific knowledge and later NASA’s. There’s buckets of science information which presumably is correct but may put readers off. Despite my limited knowledge, I got quite a lot out of the book and there’s tension and adventure involved.
Quite good novel and I’m sure that many will enjoy it.
