    Will be interested on your take on it. I was a bit more forgiving for ARTEMIS than some, but agree that it was not in the same realm as THE MARTIAN. My hopes remain high for PROJECT HAIL MARY. That said, I've held off thus far on the many offers for signed trade editions, as I'm still holding out for the Sub Press S/L edition.

        While conceding a few points in its favor, The NY Times wasn’t much of a fan of the book.

        I’m still optimistic.
        In “Project Hail Mary,” by Andy Weir, a former science teacher is the planet’s only hope.

          I read the first chapter last night. It has plenty of time to go off the rails but the first chapter is fantastic!

            Good reviews on Amazon so far.

              I received a shipping notice on my signed UK edition from Waterstones.

              I don't remember buying this, so it's a pleasant surprise/reminder!

                  Bill confirmed today on Facebook that they are doing Project Hail Mary, so hopefully we won't have to wait for too long.

                    I loved it. I never read reviews of books I want to read, so I have no idea what the reviewers have said about it. To me, it read like a modern-day Heinlein novel, and I have no problem with that.

                      I am reading one to two chapters a night, currently about 100 pages in, and am loving it so far. As long as it does not go off the rails this will be a home run for me.

                        I just started this last night, enjoying it very much. Read the new Timothy Zahn Star Wars book before that.
