A lot of people will like this book, though it's set a little in the future, it's not far in the future and the technology is all today technology.
To me it has a bit of RVing in the book. I equate long term travel a little bit like being on a deserted island, that is a moving deserted island. In some measure it's you and your trailer. Like the hero of The Martian, all your systems and utilities are contained in your 'ship' and you are responsible for them and of course we all carry duct tape.
I've read multiple times Swiss Family Robinson, Mysterious Island and Robinson Crusoe, I'm sure I'll read The Martian again, probably right after I see the movie.
