Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir [Book Review]

I haven’t read Andy Weir before, so Project Hail Mary was my first experience with the popular author’s work. After seeing the movie, I was familiar with The Martian, but I had never read the book. I added Project to my reading list when it first came out, but just like most of the books in my backlog, it took some time before I finally gave it a shot. And I’m so glad I did. It was a fun and surprisingly emotional story that I highly recommend.

In Project Hail Mary, Ryland Grace wakes up on a spaceship alone without knowing how he got there. Because it’s space, there is rarely a dull moment – it’s a page-turner for sure. If you know anything about The Martian, you know Weir does not need a range of characters to keep a story interesting. And… teeny-tiny-spoiler-but not-really-a-spoiler warning… Ryland Grace isn’t alone for long.

#1 New York Times bestselling author of The Martian, Andy Weir discusses Project Hail Mary. This incredible new science-based thriller follows a lone astronaut who must save the earth from disaster.

Project Hail Mary is a story about perseverance, courage, and friendship. I literally laughed and cried my way through the entire science-fiction novel. The only reason I gave this four instead of five stars was because I clearly didn’t understand the science. Weir loves his science, and it shows, and I’m sure more intelligent people than I will appreciate it, but to the author’s credit, I never felt the urge to stop reading, even when I didn’t fully understand why something worked or didn’t work.

If you like a good story (forget the genre), check out Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir. You won’t be disappointed.
