The Martian by Andy Weir. I'm pretty much ******. That's my considered opinion ****** six days into what should be the greatest two months of my life. And it's turned into a nightmare. I don't even know who will read this. I guess someone will find it eventually, maybe 100 years from now for the record. I didn't die on soul six. Certainly the rest of the crew thought I did and I can't blame them. Maybe there will be a day of national mourning for me and my Wikipedia page will say Mark Watney is the only human being to have died on Mars. And it'll be right probably because I'll surely die here. Just not on soul six when everyone thinks I did. Let's see. Where do I begin the Aries program? Mankind reaching out to Mars to send people to another planet for the very first time and expand the horizons of humanity, blah, blah, blah, the area's one crew did their thing and came back, heroes. They got the parade and fame and love of the world. Aries two did the same thing in a different location on Mars. They got a firm handshake and a hot cup of coffee when they got home. Area three. Well, that was my mission. Uh, ok. Not mine per se. Actually, I was the very lowest ranked member of the crew. I would only be in command of the mission if I were the only remaining person. What do you know? I'm in command.
