One sign I am loving my current read is that I won’t shut up about it. Andy Weir’s Project Hail Mary is one of those books.
A man wakes up in a sterile, white lab. His robot attendants ask his name, but he doesn’t know. Who is he? Why is he there, alone? His memory comes back in fits and starts, and he realizes it is up to him to save humankind. He is a wry and funny narrator, and his efforts to discover his identity, his mission and his future teach us much about human nature and friendship.
One part Martian, one part Jason Bourne, Project Hail Mary is a love letter to learning.
