I liked this better than the first one. It‘s been a while since I read the first, but I think there were some parts where I was bored, I lost interest. That did not happen at all in this one. I liked (most of) the characters and even the ones I didn‘t like made for an interesting story. There is also a lot of prejudices, racism, and sexism, along with a lot of conflict, but it‘s a tight space shared for a long time. I really liked this one

I‘m liking my #HurricanFionaRead so far but I think I‘d be enjoying it more if I‘d taken a chemistry class or two in school 😅

I'm regretting slightly that I stayed up to finish this last night, but I didn't want to interrupt the magic. I loved this book so much! I loved that the characters surprised me, not so much by changing as by changing in ways I didn't expect. It was entertaining and thought-provoking and beautiful. ⭐⭐⭐⭐

BarbaraJean Oh, I‘m so glad you loved it! It‘s so thoughtful, and so fascinating. Sad in some ways but also hopeful… such a gorgeous book. 2w

Maybe it‘s because I went backwards—starting with Project Hail Mary, then Artemis, now The Martian, but I was a tad underwhelmed. The Martian reads like a first novel. There are some pretty clunky passages, and a bit too much focus on characters we see once or twice then disappear. I would have enjoyed it more if Weir had tightened his focus. Still a good read, but Project Hail Mary is essentially a re-envisioning, and it is far superior.

Librariana @ChaoticMissAdventures - smart strategy! 😊 And you inspired me to go tweak my list a little! Removed some titles, added The Cartographers, La Hacienda, and Olga Dies Dreaming in their place 😁 1mo

Alas, I have now read the last of the series 🥲(at least as far as internet bibliographic records and my library suggests), though I'll have to see if the Waffles and Pancake spinoff is available. 🤔 I appreciate that old tropes have more cuddly finishes: Al running the ship just needs to stretch their legs/have a vacation; the space race would turn out better if resources were pooled, old animosities set aside, and common interests identified.
