ENGLISH DESCRIPTION A lone astronaut must save the earth from disaster in this incredible new science-based thriller from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Martian. "A novel that would have delighted Robert A. Heinlein and Isaac Asimov."--George R.R. Martin, author of A Game of Thrones"Weir's finest work to date . . . the one book I read last year that I am certain I can recommend to anyone, no matter who, and know they'll love it."--Brandon Sanderson, author of the Stormlight Archive series 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, Ryland realizes that an impossible task now confronts him. Hurtling through space on this tiny ship, it's up to him to puzzle out an impossible scientific mystery--and conquer an extinction-level threat to our species. And with the clock ticking down and the nearest human being light-years away, he's got to do it all alone. Or does he? An irresistible interstellar adventure as only Andy Weir could deliver, Project Hail Mary is a tale of discovery, speculation, and survival to rival The Martian--while taking us to places it never dreamed of going.

Christine Such a fun stack! 3w
Leniverse I did Hail Mary as an audiobook, and it was amazing. I'm sure I would have liked it in print too, but the audio narration was really next level. 3w
Readerann @Leniverse Unfortunately, there was a long line for the audio at the library (now I know why). Audiobooks sure have come a long way! 3w
Readerann @Christine I try to vary the genres enough that I can jump around and not get confused. 😁 3w

I really like this author's writing, it's humorous, fun and fast paced. I loved 'The Martian' but this one was too deep into the science for me to understand the value. The story itself was good and enjoyable. If you can get beyond the science (or enjoy it) you will like this book.

Managed to finish not only my last audio hold but also the chunkster I was working on. I even managed to sneak in a third book while I was at it. Highlight was definitely the tagged.

#WeeklyForecast
My goal this week is to finish or at least make good headway into Watership Down. I need to step up my BookSpin backlog game before it gets unmanageable.

I read this in two sittings and enjoyed every minute. Each of Weir‘s books feels like a love letter to science and this is no exception. I like that the backstory of the project slowly comes to light as Dr Grace regains his memories.

This 2022 Hugo Best Novel nominee was a low pick for me. I loved The Martian but this novel seemed to mix a lot of realistic science with totally implausible situations. Still, the main character's enthusiasm and optimism was very infectious!

5⭐
Since I‘m practically the last person ever to read/listen to this…all I really need to say is pretty much everything you‘ve ever heard about this book is true. It does have a lot of scientific elements to it…lot‘s of math…but the story is oddly heartwarming and if you‘ve read this you know exactly what I‘m talking about. There are parts to this story that are so good that it more than makes up for any boredom I had with the sciencey crap.

This was a good book and I enjoyed it. It did drag in some spots and whenever it got to the mathematical stuff I skimmed a bit. I wasn‘t 100% satisfied with the ending, but it made sense. I needed more closure, lol. But that‘s life. The main character was likable and I loved his little sidekick. If you like sci-fi, you‘ll love it. ⭐️⭐️⭐️ ½

For fans of the Martian, we have another adventure where the solo scientist is going to science the shit out of it. If you loved or hated the Martian, you'll feel the same about this one, though I think Andy has gotten better all around.

I loved the Martian and I loved this as well.

I know I‘m late to this party, but chiming in to say Project Hail Mary is SO good. I‘m reading my very last #tob22 book so picked whatever struck my fancy for my latest listen and this was it. Great pick by me. 😂 The narrator was excellent and the production did a really good job with the alien voice, very clever.

A masterpiece in every sense of the term. Weir blends humanism, empathy, and raw science to stunning effect. The result is a book that earns its place among the science-fiction greats, and one that will undoubtedly endure for years to come.

Better than The Martian in my opinion, and that's saying alot!! It made the science so tangible that I understood things I wouldn't have even tried to comprehend. My teen loved it as well, and we had such fun discussing it. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I did not expect to find this story so endearing. I thoroughly enjoyed every interaction between every character. I found myself saying "huh, I didn't know that" many times and Googling information on things like neutrinos and time dilations. I don't know how a movie would bring justice to this epic space odyssey so I don't think I'll watch the movie.

There also happens to be a lot of epic fanart of Rocky out there.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

What a fabulously upbeat story. Lots of science!!!! Science!!!!! Rocky! And Engineering!!!!!

The sun is dying with an infection of some sort, and all Earth is activated to figure out what the heck is going on and stop it. And it ends up that a high school science teacher, who doesn't want to go off to space to save the world, is the one true Earth hero.

This book is another hit from this author. Some of the science stuff went WAY over my head but I didn‘t even mind. It was just so well written and believable for me and just genuine. I loved this book. A mission to space go save the world. Aliens. Humor. Suspense. I didn‘t think it was possible to fill the void after having read The Martian and loving it so much, but Andy Weir did it again and did not disappoint.

4 stars for Rocky!! A man attempts to recover memories of how he wound up on a last ditch mission to save earth from a strange alien microbe in this sci-fi novel. It falls into some of the issues Weir has had before--over explaining his science and not a strong enough editorial hand-- but overall I really enjoyed it. Especially Rocky. All the stars for Rocky.

Hi folks! It's Tuesday so time for the #Two4Tuesday questions. Thanks to everyone who played last week and happy Tuesday!

1️⃣ I like them both. There are times that I love a suspenseful story that moves quickly and times when the plot develops slowly that I can't get enough of.
2️⃣ Probably my favorite book of 2021 that was plot driven. Though the characters were well done also.

I enjoyed pieces of this, particularly the beginning and end, but it was way too long and repetitive and I lost interest in the middle. I put the book down for months, only picking it back up to finish it before the end of the year. I did enjoy the overall story, it just should have been shortened quite a bit. The audio version is well done.

I love this kind of old-school science adventure that throws unsolvable problems at its heroes, who then engineer solutions. This one just keeps it coming with the puzzles and the clever what-if-we-did-thisses.
