Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir

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, he realizes that an impossible task now confronts him. Alone on this tiny ship that’s been cobbled together by every
government and space agency on the planet and hurled into the depths of space, it’s up to him to conquer an extinction-level threat to our species.

And thanks to an unexpected ally, he just might have a chance.

When she’s offered the chance to get rich quick she jumps at it. But planning the perfect crime in 1/6th gravity was never going to be easy, especially as there is a conspiracy at the heart of Artemis. 
At first it was about the money, then it was about control, now it’s about survival…

My Thoughts: 

‘Artemis’ is an intriguing concept. A society on the moon, with different laws to those on earth. I absolutely loved ‘The Martian’ and could not wait to get my copy of ‘Artemis’. By the end of the story I was reading so fast because I just wanted to know what happened next and the ending was incredible. It left me wanting more and wishing there was a sequel just to see how everyones lives panned out.

However the start was a bit slower than I would of liked. I mean it could just be me. For someone who loves to read, I really don’t have the attention span to suggest a ‘bookish’ person. I was struggling. It took me 2 weeks to read, which is uncommon for me. Although I have been a lot busier than I was expecting, its still a long time. I just couldn’t get into the story.

But if you are like me I would highly recommend sticking it out. Once you get past the first couple of chapters you’ll be hooked!

‘Artemis’ was a good second novel from Andy weir and his attention to detail when it comes to science fiction is amazing and makes the story even more real.
