I have a confession. I started this book last year and set it aside. I got 200 plus pages in this year and jumped to the last chapter. I‘m considering it a book I‘ve read, guess it could be considered a bail, but I feel like I invested time and get the gist so it counts. #botm

This author is a one-hit wonder for me. I loved The Martian but this book and the one before I couldn't get past the clumsy writing and bad stereotypes. Project Hail Mary is first person w/exhaustive internal narrative exposition on the science. It felt more like "look how smart I am!" than any added benefit to the reader. It would have been more relatable if the author accepted that the reader trusts him and got on with the storytelling instead.

What a space journey! Overall I liked this one but I also feel like I wanted to like it more than I did. The way the story unravelled was interesting, though, and I liked the different character relationships. The science stuff lost me on a few occasions but that was to be expected.🚀🌌

I absolutely loved this book and it's definitely one of the best ones I've read this year.

It's such an intense page-turner and the characters are awesome, especially Rocky. 🖤

Great book, great storyline.

2. Favorite: Project Hail Mary (Andy Weir books always suck me in ❤️)

This one is a bit of a ham, both in size and execution. There are parts that are really good and gripping, but plenty that reads like a grade eight science project; (review continues in comments)

Creadnorthey a protagonist skill set that defies even this Speculative Fiction, moments where I, as a science neophyte, said why do that and not this, plenty of America is greater even while part of the international team, and a frat-boy narrative voice that screams cast me using the hippest up-and-coming actor in the movie version. I got sucked into this by Obama and Bill Gates Goodreads recommendation bots- beware! (edited) 5mo

25-30 Jul 22 (audiobook)
Possibly my favourite free audiobook of the month ever.
I do have a penchant for the occasional science fiction novel - possibly influenced by my husband who reads little else.
The premise of this book was interesting, particularly the way Weir imagined the meeting of two alien species, their differences and similarities and their growing methods of communication. Quite thought provoking material.

This book has been on my TBR shelf for awhile now and it did not disappoint. Funny enough the most sci-fi thing in this text was humanity actually cooperating to solve a problem (ugh I hate how cynical I have become) 🙄 However, not surprising was the fact that humanity was saved by a teacher of all things. Rocky and Grace‘s friendship was the best!

This was a struggle. Almost didn't finish, but even though I had a hard time following all the "sciency " stuff...I had to know the ending.
If you're a space enthusiast or love science and math thrown into the books you read...this books for you. Just not for me.

This is such a fun light hearted book. I am still in the first 100 pages though. As a math teacher, I love the basic tidbits of math and science and classroom teaching. I really don‘t have a good grasp of science, but Weir explains it well. Very interesting and humorous too!

I‘m officially an Andy Weir fan now. I love his writing style. I love his sense of humor. I love that he uses science and math as part of his stories in a way that‘s really accessible. (I am not a math-person at all, you don‘t need to be.)

I need to read Artemis now. Maybe I can work a Half Price Books trip into my day…

It took me forever to finish this, but that's just because I am not naturally an audiobook person. This was a suspenseful and interesting book, a highly original first contact story with an unlikely hero and *LOTS* of science. The narrator did a great job, although his rendition of European bureaucrat Stratt (sp?) was slightly ridiculous. Fans of The Martian will likely enjoy it. (No F-bombs this time, though!)

This is a strange book to review. Overall it was a very enjoyable story, and I loved the interactions between Grace and Rocky, as well as the ending to the story. However at times it felt a trifle long winded, and this was exacerbated by the science within the book. I am very glad to have read it but be prepared to give it the time it needs if you read it.

12th and final book finished for #FantasticFiction

READ THIS BOOK!! Thats how good it is. I literally laughed out loud so many times. And I cried. I cried in the middle, and now at the end. I didn‘t want the story to end. Will I ever read another book that I like this much? This author is so talented! I absolutely loved the 2 main characters. They had such a special relationship. They need to make this into a movie. Again, do yourselves a favor and READ THIS BOOK!!

Ryland Grace wakes up in a spaceship all alone. He doesn‘t remember who he is or even what he‘s supposed to be doing in space. Grace starts to piece together some memories & realizes he‘s out to try & save Earth but his 2 other crewmates are dead. Will Grace save humanity & what will he find along the way?

I really enjoyed this book even with all of science talk. A great start to #NewYearWhoDis

It‘s a rare occasion when both cats are on the same bed snuggling me. Alice is snuggled in the crook of my arm (don‘t mind her bald spots) and Sally is between my legs on top of my wedge pillow 😂

Bookzombie Are the cats at least tolerating each other now? I know you were told they are a pair, but found out they weren‘t. 13mo
TheLibrarian @Bookzombie The b&w one (Alice) always hisses at the other. Alice is tolerating Sally a little more but not too much. Thankfully Sally either ignores the hissing, runs away, or occasionally entices it 🤣 It‘s so weird because when we got them, they always hid right next to each other. But it‘s super rare when I get to cuddle them both at the same time. 13mo

This was a whole lotta fun. I haven‘t read The Martian but judging by the film I‘d say this is a similar ratio of adventure to science to humour. I won‘t say any more than that because the few surprises are a big part of the enjoyment of this book.

I have a theatre friend with whom I share a reading Venn diagram, & our overlap is science fiction. At a rehearsal last week, he plopped down next to me & said "please tell me you've read Project Hail Mary, because I HAVE to discuss it with someone." 5 minutes later, it was purchased from Audible. I don't always have good luck with fiction on audio but WOW. Ray Porter's performance was fantastic, & I will be reading more Weir.

I was able to read most of this book on my plane rides to and from Santa Fe and then finished it up last night. I liked it very much. You get to discover with the main character what's happening because he wakes up with amnesia at the very beginning of the book. You get flashbacks as he remembers things. Interesting science concepts. I adore Rocky. #botm
