The book “The Martian” written by Andy Weir was one of the best books I’ve read in quite a while. It is Andys first novell and was first published one chapter at a time on his website. Only after that it was release as an ebook and finally published.
Due to the overwhelming feedback Twentieth Century Fox optioned the film rights. The Movie “The Martian” will be released end 2015 and first trailer was just released.
