「我從沒注意過火星上安靜得如此詭異。

  沒有太空衣,沒有維生裝備運轉的聲音。連自己的心跳都聽得一清二楚。」

  不過幾天前,馬克幸運地成為少數登上火星的太空人。突然颳起的強勁沙塵暴卻逼著他們不得不放棄任務,返回地球。幸好所有人都成功了。

  除了馬克。

  他被扯斷的天線擊中,刺穿了太空衣,吹進了暴風中。

  同伴們誤以為他已罹難,情急之下只好將他就這樣孤零零地留在火星上。全世界都在哀悼,太空人馬克.瓦特尼英勇殉職……

  馬克的確是個幸運的傢伙,太空衣都破了,但他還沒死。真正的考驗現在才開始。他必須設法聯絡太空總署派人來救他,或是等待四年後的下一次火星任務。而為了生存,他的首要工作竟然是……在火星上種馬鈴薯?!

  馬克能靠著他的科學知識活過1400天嗎?

  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 plain-old "human error" are much more likely to kill him first.

  But Mark isn't ready to give up yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills—and a relentless, dogged refusal to quit—he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next. Will his resourcefulness be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him?

作者簡介

安迪‧威爾 Andy Weir

  我們可以說安迪在科學方面天賦異稟:父母分別是微粒子物理學家及工程師,15歲即被美國國家實驗室延攬,之後專職電腦程式工程師,熱愛物理相對論、軌道力學和火箭,是個不折不扣的太空宅男。

   我們也可以說安迪在創作小說方面很有一套:起初,他的短篇小說被文學經紀人拒於門外,但她不放棄;2009年,他開始寫長篇連載小說《火星任務》,並放 上自己的網站讓人免費閱讀,沒想到大批讀者來信要求,希望能出版電子書讓他們收藏;於是2013年,他在亞馬遜自費出版電子書,三個月內便賣出的 35,000本,引起了有聲書出版商的興趣,美國皇冠出版集團更用六位數買下紙本書的版權,他還得到了一紙二十世紀福斯影業的電影合約。《火星任務》是他 創作的第一本小說,至於下一本書嘛,他打算寫寫看科幻犯罪小說。(當然少不了科學囉!)

  ANDY WEIR was first hired as a programmer for a national laboratory at age fifteen and has been working as a software engineer ever since. He is also a lifelong space nerd and a devoted hobbyist of subjects like relativistic physics, orbital mechanics, and the history of manned spaceflight. The Martian is his first novel.
