  • Intelligent and Fun

    I was more than excited for a new Andy Weir space adventure, and this one turned out to be even better than expected. It's everything that charmed me about his work before: Humour, intelligence, charm, smarts, and a whole lot of heart. Weir is at the top of his game and I could not have been happier to experience this book. I'll try to be as vague as possible since the enjoyment of this story came from being surprised. And there were so many surprises. Ryland is an awkward, charming, funny character who seems so real and honest. I absolutely loved the guy, who does not give himself credit for how wildly intelligent he really is. There are tons of math and science terms, which normally turn me off because they are not my personal strong suits, but it's presented in an easy to understand way that puts into scope everything Ryland has to do. The entire book brims with a sense of wonder and awe, but never takes away from the gravity (pun intended) of the situation. Anything else I say would get into spoilers, so I'll simply end by saying this book is a MUST. One of my favourite reads from 2021, it's perfect for science fiction fans, science lovers, and everyone who ever dreamed of travelling to or being fascinated by space.

  • Absolutely fantastic science fiction!!!

    A wonderfully entertaining read that will have you laughing, learning and perhaps your face will be leaking too!! For fans of The Martian, you will definitely want to pick this book up, it's just a delightful story. I don't want to give too much detail here as I so enjoyed how you learn the events of the story right alongside the main character, Ryland Grace. Ryland is the sole survivor of a space mission that will save the human race......or not, because he really can't remember anything. Bummer. And here begins Ryland's journey of discovery and remembering, it's hilarious, touching and full of the amazing science that Andy Weir is known for. I really love how much science you probably don't realize you are learning as the story progresses, and how incredibly plausible so much of what is written actually is. How would the world come together in a situation like this, what would be acceptable to do to save our species? So many wonderful themes in the story, once again a man alone who only has his wits to not only save himself, but he also has the weight of saving EVERYONE on his shoulders as well. Duty, grief, loss and the universal power of friendship all are threaded throughout this marvelous tale. If you love a rollicking good science fiction story, then Project Hail Mary should absolutely been on your reading list!!

  • Incredible book, even better as an audiobook!

    Story: 5+ stars Such a cleverly crafted story! Our main character starts out with amnesia and as time passes, more and more of his memories return. Meanwhile, he has remembered enough of his purpose to try to get started on his mission. Until his ship is approached by an alien vessel! And the story just gets better from there!! Just like in ‘The Martian’, things go well and things go wrong and our hero and his new alien counterpart must cope with trying to fix issues and at the same time find a solution to the problem that sent them both here in the first place. Some surprising twists happen as Dr. Grace finally remembers everything that happened before the journey. I really can't say enough about the world-crafting and storyline and sheer creativity that this book showcases! I thought The Martian was amazing, but this book is even better (and the science is a lot easier than in The Martian, as well!) Mr. Weir is truly one of the best Science Fiction writers I've ever come across! Also, unlike The Martian, the number of "F bombs" can be counted on one hand and the rest of the swear words are mild ones: "dang it", "gosh darn it", etc. Other than one reference to sex (used for humorous purposes) it's clean and certainly is fine for a YA audience. And yet, adults will love it, as well! Narrator: 5 stars Ray Porter does such an incredible job! He ‘sounds’ like a middle-school science teacher! When he feels deep emotion (or when Rocky does), you can hear the emotion in his voice. Also, the special effects for the Rocky’s voice are very well done! Mr. Porter does SO MANY accents! This is one seriously talented voice actor! *poor, **ok, ***good, ****very good, *****something special

  • *Not my typical romance....

    Amazing! I LOVED The Martian, couldn't stand Artemis, but Andy has redeemed himself with Hail Mary. Kept me very invested, and took a turn I was not expecting but happily let it take me. This genre is not my genre. I read romance and I mean FLUFFY romance, but there is something about Andy Weir's literary voice that completely keeps me engaged. Definitely recommend this book if you love space, and unlikely bromances. 5/5 *Disclaimer, title is misleading. There is ZERO romance.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Great read!

    Andy Weir scores again with this novel that bears similarities to The Martian (the hero solves insoluble problems right before our eyes). But this is not on Mars but aboard a spaceship travelling to the stars on a mission to save humanity from extinction! And our hero has no memory at the beginning. This is a compelling and exciting read from end to end and I strongly recommend it.
