Smart scifi submitted by sjarvis on June 25, 2021, 1:06pm I don’t read a lot of science fiction, but I love a good story. And this is a great story! The book smartly weaves in a lot of science and math to make the fictional aspects of space travel and a very creative alien planet more believable. Honestly, I loved it. I wanted to write the ending a bit differently and so I’m rating it 4/5 stars. But that’s just me. Maybe it will be 5/5 for you!

Loved It! submitted by AGregorka on June 28, 2021, 6:00pm I really enjoyed The Martian so was very excited to get into this one. Amazing story, had me chuckling out loud along the way, touching, and smart. Would highly recommend to a number of audiences!

Perfect if you liked The Martian submitted by mwatson on July 8, 2021, 3:12pm If you're a fan of Andy Weir's first book, The Martian, you'll like this one too. The main character takes the same nerdy glee as Mark Watney in conducting experiments, solving problems, and explaining complicated scientific concepts in a funny and easy-to-understand way. (Also, the scenes of "I have to fix this thing that broke before it kills me" that made up 90% of The Martian? Yep, there's plenty of that here too.) It's hard to talk about the plot without spoiling it, since almost everything is unknown at the beginning and information is slowly revealed to the reader. Suffice it to say that the suspense of the first third or so of the book makes it impossible to put down as you follow twist after twist, and even when the breakneck pace finally slows down a little, it is still fun, interesting and very high-stakes.

I really don't like SciFi, but I LOVED this submitted by ktscott on July 18, 2021, 5:45pm I was in a book club when I read The Martian. I chaffed against it. I didn't want to read it. I was going to hate it. I had to apologize to my friend who suggested it because ultimately I LOVED it. So when I saw that Andy Weir had another book out, I had to read it. And I loved it again. It follows the same type of general scene in The Martian-- intrepid, intelligent man is stranded somehow alone in space, but it works again. If this is his general plot, he makes it work time and time again. Enjoy this super read!

A little less grounded in reality than The Martian, but that's a good thing submitted by bahr on July 23, 2021, 10:39pm I couldn't put this book down. It was in many ways familiar, as Weir repeats his familiar style of problem solving. In this book there are some improbable leaps that set up the problem in the book, but I don't find it an issue at all. I was just surprised that Weir had taken that risk and it paid off. The science is quite accessible too, as Weir explains things through the story, but in a very natural way. I really hope that Weir writes a sequel set in the same universe as Project Hail Mary because this one left me hungry for more!
