When I watch the movie in plane, I’m so overwhelming with the story of an astronaut who was left behind by his crew (they thought he was dead) in Mars, being alone and have to find ways to survive on the hostile planet.
Mark Watney (Matt Damon) never give up no matter how much obstacles that he faces. He need to find way to communicate with Nasa, make sure food & water is well enough and a lot of thing that he need to take care of.
In fact, I immediate bought the book after watching the movie and it attractive me the most with the below line.
I’m stranded on Mars.
I have no way to communicate with Earth.
If the Oxygenator breaks down, I’ll suffocate. If the Water Reclaimer breaks down, I’ll die of thirst. If the Habitat breaches, I’ll just kid of explode.
If none of these thing happen, I’ll eventually run out of food and starve to death.
