The Martian

I never read the book but I was pleasantly surprised by this effort by Ridley Sctt, especially after Prometheus (which was not as good as I had hoped). The characterization was a bit better than most hard SF stories, nothing terribly implausible (other than the depiction of a Martian windstorm and a few other things, but I will give artistic license its due) and most of all, a future where there the space program is actually dedicated to space exploration, rather than embracing political correctness.
