Technically, the writing is good. But the story is bordering on childish. I confess I didn't finish the book. When the plot reached "silly" I quit.
Just a few points: 1 The mission leader (on Mars) falls unconscious for many hours (no trauma involved), wakes up, and is assumed fully recovered as if nothing happened! Really?
2 There is no video or audio recording in the hab module, apparently (???) Why else is one (female, notice) character's account of an armed assault on her deemed hysterical, when it is the plain truth? She is force-ably sedated and left to "sleep it off". No one even goes to check for physical evidence of what she reported. Weird.
The above happens after dead bodies are found strewn about the landscape, some mutilated. Huh, nothing going on here folks. Move alone.
I did. To another story.
The story has potential, but it's an unpolished diamond, with lots of irritating mistakes that subtracts from the overall experience. In particular, the characters total lack of personality and development makes the book very boring.

I really enjoyed this story. Found it to be quite plausible and exciting. I read part of it one evening and could not put it down the next day. One could compare it somewhat to The Martian, as being stranded there, but that would be the only similarity. Some are overly critical of the science behind this... easy to do, sitting behind your keyboard. I found similar issues myself, reading The Martian, but that didn't detract from the enjoyment of either book. Great, quick action read... can't wait to get started on the sequel. Read it! I'm sure you'll like it, as much as I did!
