I am glad I was wrong. You do get a guy stranded on Mars, but you also get a lot of science terminologies and things you learned in high school (don’t worry you don’t have to remember anything), obstacles and a lot of action and humor where you’ll find passages like this one: “Maybe I’ll post a consumer review. “Brought product to surface of Mars.
