Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir


First I would like to say that I enjoyed Project Hail Mary.  It wasn't quite as good as The Martian but was better than Artemis.

The story is a cracker and I don't want to spoil it for you. So I'll just say a wise cracking scientist ends up going into space on a journey to save the world from attack.


There is a lot of humour, but also quite a lot of science – I would have edited at least a third of it out.


Despite being a tad science heavy I read it in a week – that is almost 500 pages – so from my point of view it was a page turner.


  1. It's been on my hold list for a while. Can't wait to read it! Thanks for the review.
