On the Horizon – project hail mary (Andy Weir)

Ahoy there me mateys!  I received this sci-fi eARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.  So here be me honest musings . . .

Title: project hail mary

Book Cover

The third book by this author, this be an excellent, fun, and intense read.  It follows Ryland Grace who wakes up in a craft with a fantastic case of amnesia and then has to save the world.  I almost want to get amnesia about this book so I can go back on the journey all over again.  Is that enough to get ye interested?  Because this book be so full of twists, fun reveals, and just plain awesome.

Scared that the science involved be too much for ye?  Fear not, much like the martian, the science is explained in an understandable way for the non-sciency person.  The only small flaw be some of the coincidence and unbelievability but the thrills be worth it.  I highly recommend.

So lastly . . .

Thank you Ballantine Books!

  1. I am 5 hours into the 16 hours audiobook. Great fun, I am really enjoying this! Have to take a break now, but I guess it won‘t take me too long to get through this.


  2. Glad to see you liked this one! I had such a good time with The Martian that I’ve been curious to try more of Weir’s work, but so many readers seem to dislike his characters (especially his female characters) in his more recent books that I’ve been hesitant. Still, I’m often willing to take a risk for some good plotting and fun science, so I’m happy to see this story has so much going for it!
