Five top books on visiting Mars

One title on the Barnes & Noble Review's list of five top books on visiting Mars:
The Martian
by Andy Weir

Stranded on Mars after a wind storm kills his crew, astronaut Mark Watney must use all of his knowledge and wherewithal to survive an unforgiving planet and impossible odds. In pursuit of oxygen, fuel, protection from radiation, and a sense of purpose, Andy Weir's genrebending new foray into the paranormal is balanced with a realist, slice-of-modern life approach to scouring Big Red, and exploring the perimeters of our galaxy.
