I don't think it is possible to geek out any harder over all the science! Brings back my college physics days when we would do off the cuff calculations to solve the craziest things. Sure to be on my Best of the Year list for 2021. ( )

“What do I have to work with? Well, I have an entire laboratory and I know how to use it. But what’s readily at hand? I look around at all the junk that fell to the floor. A bunch of test tubes, sample swabs, Popsicle sticks, a digital stopwatch, pipettes, some Scotch tapes, a pen…Okay, I may have what I need here.”



In “Project Hail Mary” by Andy Weir



Instead of gaffer-tape, maybe the WD40 could be sprayed at the jumping alien in this maybe soon to be a blockbuster of a SF novel like the first one “Artemis”? Einstein kept on repeating the same experiment and failing time after time; he called it bad science, and I would agree. But for some people they shouldn’t bother doing the same again, change what they’re doing because it worked for WD40 anyway...for some it took 40 attempts to get the formulation of WD40 right, before settling on the current one in 1953. That's where it got its name, Water displacement Formulation 40. Weir at his third attempt is still trying to find a winnable “formula”…Our author here only must keep on trying…If this novel ever comes to the big screen I'd love to see that. Even if I happen to live with a slightly spliffy flatmate (alright! Very spliffy flatmate who spends loads of time in front of the telly, with pizza and munchies). And I don't inhale (and that's the truth, there's nothing like living with a herb aficionado and conversing with them with a clear mind; it's most interesting, and I'm not being funny there). Try finding anyone not on GR who has read a complete book in the last decade. Instead we watch streaming TV, and write insipid comments (and reviews like this one) on social media. Reading takes active energy; watching movies is passive. Although bad millions will buy this book and never read it...just waiting for the movie to come out. We’ve become lazy. The majority of college students can’t write a complete sentence with correct grammar, syntax and spelling why should they bother reading books?

My parents did hammer into me as a kid, if at first you don't succeed, try try and try again. Good for you Andy! ( )

In this work Andy Weir returns to his excellent recipe from The Martian moreso than his experiements in Artemis. The technique pays off and we're left with another thrill-packed science-triumph. The story offers plenty of adversity and even some emotional moments of despair, but a calm head and ingenuity can accomplish miracles.

I would highly recommend picking this up on audiobook over paper. To explain why is a spoiler, so just take my word for it. ( )

A lot of the suspense of this book is generated by the reader finding things out at the same time as the narrator, so I’ll forgo the plot summary and simply say that this book begins on a spaceship, and our protagonist has awoken from what appears to be a coma. How he got on the ship, and what his purpose is, he figures out eventually.

Normally I give books huge side-eye when they use the amnesia trope: like how can someone forget their own name but know how to manipulate technology, etc.? Usually that kind of amnesia would have resulted from a brain injury so traumatic that chances of a full recovery are slim. But in this case, because the ship was keeping the protagonist alive and doing a fair bit of his thinking for him until he woke up more fully, I was somehow more inclined to suspend my disbelief. (In contrast, I bailed on Peter May’s Coffin Road because of the amnesia trope; the protagonist wasn’t kept alive in the same way.)

This book, in short, was SO GOOD. I stayed up late to finish it. It did run a bit long, but it was worth it. The ending was exactly what I hoped for; it was perfect. I would definitely watch this if it were a movie, and I’d recommend it if you liked The Martian. ( )

Series Info/Source: This is a stand alone book. I listened to this on audiobook, which I got from Audible.

Audiobook Quality (5/5): The narration was very well done; definitely one I would recommend listening to if you enjoy audiobooks. The chords/musical parts of the aliens are really well done and very creative.

Thoughts: This was well done and intriguing. The story is about a future Earth where we find out an alien lifeform is eating the energy from our sun, threatening to put the Earth into a new ice age. Ryland Grace is a middle school science teacher who gets haphazardly pulled into research on this alien life form because of previous research he did in college.

The book bounces back and forth between the present (where Grace is on a spaceship with memory loss) and the past (where we learn how Grace got to where he is today). I loved a lot about this book. I loved Grace’s sense of humor and the way he was able to extrapolate from his experience to figure a lot of things out. I do think at times the technical jumps he made were a bit contrived but they were fun all the same.

As with “The Martian” sometimes the story gets a bit bogged down by all the details. Don’t get me wrong, I am a scientist by trade and enjoy a lot of the scientific discussions. However, there are portions of the book where the story starts to suffer because of all of the scientific details that are included. These portions definitely dragged (especially mid book) and made the book longer than it needed to be.

My other small quibble is that, although I appreciated the irony of the ending, it left me feeling a bit unsatisfied as well. I do understand why it ended the way it did but that doesn’t mean I loved it.

My Summary (4.5/5): Overall I enjoyed this and am glad I read this. This is definitely a book that is made to be read on audiobook, you will gain a lot more from the story by listening to it. I do think there were parts of the story that were kind of slow and I felt the ending was a bit lacking. I would recommend this to those who are interested in humorous sci-fi dealing with space travel and alien encounters. ( )
