Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Holy guacamole. Never in my wildest dreams did I expect to ever read science fiction again, let alone LOVE this story as much as I did. It is so much FUN.
Ryland Grace wakes up alone in space not remembering a thing. Slowly, he gets his memory back, and from there the adventure begins. The narration flashes back in time to the events leading up to the present situation. The dual storytelling is very well done.
Remarkably, this book stirs all the emotions. It’s extremely funny, heartwarming, happy, and sad all at the same time. There were also a couple of twists that I did not see coming. Lots of science and technical jargon may not appeal to some people, but this is one of the most CREATIVE stories ever written. I highly recommend people stepping out of their comfort zones and give this book a try.
This audiobook version of this was excellent. One of the best I’ve ever listened to. Five stars
