The Martian, by Andy Weir

Very concise summary: Mark Watney is Robinson Crusoe on Mars without pal Friday to keep him company. He has to figure out how to survive until the next Mars mission arrives. There have been a few books recently such as Robopocalypse and Ready Player One, that read like they have been written to be made into movies This book is one of those. I swayed between three and four stars on this one and finally kicked it up to four.
