Review of “Project Hail Mary”: Andy Weir delivers again

I wasn’t a huge fan of Artemis, but loved The Martian. Project Hail Mary is closer to The Martian in tone and theme. I very much enjoyed it.

I listened to the audiobook, which is narrated by Ray Porter, who also narrates the Bobiverse series. The two are similar enough (big space travel stories) that there was a certain comfort in hearing Porter’s voice, but I also periodically felt some dissonance between the two stories. For example, I kept expecting the narrator to offer a solution to one of the science problems based on the tech available in the Bobiverse– which is silly because they’re not even written by the same author! Still, it was a good performance by a good narrator, and I enjoyed this book immensely.
