    I read this book 3 months back and highly recommend it. My career was with NASA on the space shuttle program so I know a bit about “real” space and I must say if any scifi story attempts reality this one is one of the best. While slightly far fetched itself it does do an excellent job of portraying a real Mars mission after a natural disaster causes big problems with the mission. If there are any complaints my only one would be since the story basically revolves around the stranded astronaut it drags, but only a little, just a bit. It is an excellent book with a realistic “real” space story line.
