Just finished reading this excellent book. It costs .77p and will only be available as an ebook until 30th April.

Thanks for the update.

I also really enjoyed the book and have just recommended it to a couple of friends. I had no idea the rights had been sold so I will make sure they download it tonight!

I'm not sure why so many people are no-voting this. I'm pretty sure Kulana is not the author. If you check out the link for the book you'll see it has been out since last year, it has hundreds of positive reviews, and has been in the sci-fi top sellers list for quite some time.

If anyone is interested they should pick it up now before it gets withdrawn from sale (and presumably re-released at a later date with a much higher price). So thank you Kulana for thinking of others and posting this warning before it is too late.

You're very welcome Fantasy-Fan. I wish that I was the author but I can't write for tuppence. I own over three thousand SciFi paperbacks and didn't think that anyone could have something new to write about Mars. I was wrong.

Author or not I have to disagree with him. Dull stuff.

I have just finished this fantastic book and thought I would log on and leave feedback. Great shame that it has been withdraw from sale. As an engineer, I thought this book was brilliantly written, gripping to the end and sprinkled with humour along the way. Watney is a Hero! Hope it comes out on sale soon again.

Nearly finished the second book of the Hyperion quartet by Dan Simmons. Excellent stuff.
