The best sci-fi book I've read in a loooong time.

I'm a huge fan of science fiction books. Unfortunately there are few books that rise to level of, what I consider, great books. Many books are "good", but there are only a handful that I put in the "great" category. The top of my list has the likes of Philip K. Dick's "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep", and Ray Bradbury's "The Martian Chronicles", and "Farenhiet 451". I think I have stumbled on another book that may make my list of "Great" science fiction. The book is called "The Martian" by Andy Weir. I'm just under half way through the book, and I reserve the right to trash it later, but, so far, it's a brilliant book. It's humorous, technical and intriguing in a way that not many books achieve. The story is about an astronaut's survival on the planet Mars after he's stranded due to a freak accident. You can read more bout it here. There's also a major motion picture coming out based on the book, but you know the book's always better:)
