Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he's alive - and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plainold "human error" are much more likely to kill him first.

Fabulous storyline. Really liked it but the details in the math and science slowed it down a bit. That being said, I did learn a lot. Worth a read!

When he's apprised at the last minute of a mandatory meeting abroad, Stone Barrington rushes off to Europe for a whirlwind tour of business and, of course, pleasure. But from the start the trip seems to be cursed, plagued by suspicious "accidents" and unfortunate events, and some of Stone's plans go up in flames - literally. Not a believer in coincidence, Stone sets out to learn the true source of his curious misfortune and finds that what appeared to be bad luck may, in fact, have been a warning.

As usual, great book. A bit predictable, especially about the girl but still very entertaining. The ending has left me intrigued...

Sex, suspense, sheer entertainment - Mcnally's Luck is Lawrence Sanders' seductive game of cat and mouse (and murder). Playboy/lover/sleuth Archy McNally is back - and the secrets of the filthy rich have never been filthier.... What begins with a kidnapped cat leads to ransom and homicide. And if a sensuous psychic makes a believer out of McNally, he'll learn that humans don't have none lives...but scandals do.

The performer was great, especially given the author's satire and style of writing. Great story line. Not as predictable as some mysteries are. Worth a listen!

Pretty good book. Reader did a great job. Worth listening to. I would highly recommend the previous Theodore Boone book prior to listening to this one, though I like this story better.
