Like most people, I was first introduced to Weir’s writing through The Martian. His latest novel is a wild tale about a high school science teacher who wakes up in a different star system with no memory of how he got there. The rest of the story is all about how he uses science and engineering to save the day. It’s a fun read, and I finished the whole thing in one weekend.      source
Perhaps the best audio book I have heard! #projecthailmary by Andy Weir is great but the performance of Ray Porter of all of the characters is award winning. I cannot stop listening. Sooo good!      source
Best sci fi book i've read in a long long time. Has lots of real science/engineering in it. Incredible read.      source
Project Hail Mary: 5/5 stars. I have no idea why this book was so much fun, but it was really, really good. The science was clever, the story was great.      source
If you want to read something that celebrates science at its core, read Project Hail Mary from @andyweirauthor. An excellent and brave science fiction book!      source
The plot of Andy Weir's PROJECT HAIL MARY consists mostly of science problems and their solutions. Joyously. My question is: What is the youngest age of readers that revel in the book? Because they WILL want to become scientists. Anybody got examples?      source
"Hail Mary" by @andyweirauthor is one of the best fiction books I've read in a LOOOONG time! • It's a "hard science" novel so all the physics are real, but the story is fiction. • You get captivated by the story, but also learn some clever engineering in the process! • 10/10      source
