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
Author: Andy Weir
Publisher: Ballantine Books
Publication Date: TODAY!!! (hardback/e-book)
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!
Goodreads’ website has this to say about the novel:
Ryland Grace is the sole survivor on a desperate, last-chance mission–and if he fails, humanity and the earth itself will perish.
Except that right now, he doesn’t know that. He can’t even remember his own name, let alone the nature of his assignment or how to complete it.
All he knows is that he’s been asleep for a very, very long time. And he’s just been awakened to find himself millions of miles from home, with nothing but two corpses for company.
His crewmates dead, his memories fuzzily returning, he realizes that an impossible task now confronts him. Alone on this tiny ship that’s been cobbled together by every government and space agency on the planet and hurled into the depths of space, it’s up to him to conquer an extinction-level threat to our species.
And thanks to an unexpected ally, he just might have a chance.
