The Martian by Andy Weir

I am about 90% through Andy Weir's The Martian book, and I gotta say, this is one fantastic read.

Written in large part as log entries by an astronaut named Mark Watney, it is different enough from the average SF (Sci-Fi) work in that regard alone, but then Andy includes enough geekery to really make things interesting. I won't go into any more detail, but if you are a geek (check), who is into spaceflight (check), and Mars exploration (check), then this is one book you need to read.

And better yet, they are nearly complete with the filming of the movie (starring Matt Damon as Mark Watney, for those of you who care about such things), so that should be out later this year.
