Lots of folks 'round here loved Andy Weir's "the Martian".
Here's one you might like as well....

We Are Legion (We Are Bob) (Bobiverse Book 1), Dennis Taylor
It has a similar vibe, and it seems to me that if you liked "the Martian", you'd get a kick out of this too.

It's a bit more silly, the "science" isn't quite as good, and overall I think Weir's book is better, but it's still pretty good, a lot of fun, and enough like it that it's worth a read. Check it out.

I got a kick out of this book, and hope he writes more of them. While some of the science is a bit light, it's at least consistent. The feel is more of a fun/interesting story than "hard" sci-fi. I think comparing it to "The Martian" is pretty fair overall.

Yes. We Are Legion was one of the best books of 2016 IMHO. He's already working on the sequel,

Oh that's good news! I've already been through the first one twice and enjoyed it as much the second time.
