Was Hermes going to go to Mars regardless whether or not the probe resupply on the Earth flyby was successful? I thought if that failed the rescue mission would just be cancelled. What was the point of the plan where the rest of the crew would commit suicide leaving Johannsen (?) to survive?

The book has been out for years, what are the rules here about spoiler tags? I'm pretty sure Hermes was on a trajectory to Mars anyways because of how the whole ion engine thing worked, that's why they were all going to down the cyanide pills and Johannsen was going to eat them

Weir's book was bad. Like terrible bad.

Oh no, I've got a problem!
Let me do a bunch of math.
I fixed the problem.
Oh no, I've got another problem!

The End

Should make a good movie, but the book is boring as hell.

I loving loved the book, one of my most favourite reads in years
