5.0 out of 5 stars Great Sci-Fi & survival story!
Reviewed in India on October 31, 2017
I can't imagine and the amount of research and homework that has gone into this. This is one of the best Science Fictions I have ever read.
Once Mark is abandoned in the godforsaken planet, it is a relentless series of life threatening problems thrown at him one after another, right till the end. But with his resourcefulness, intelligence and willpower to survive he finds some or the other solution to each of those situations.
One thing I would have liked is a better character development of Mark. Given his strong personality type, some background of Mark's earlier life, some personal stories would have been better for the readers to connect to his character. It would have also been a nice break from all the technicalities in the narration, which at times, I felt, was getting to a saturation.
Other than that, it is a phenomenal work of sci-fi, even better than the movie, I would say. Must read if you like science fictions or survival stories.

As far as Amazon's service is concerned, the book was delivered on time and in great condition. So full marks for that!

PS: Please hit "Yes" if you like my review.
