Book reviews for Christmas

This SF novel doesn’t have anything at all to do with theme of the blog–sorry–but it’s really good.

Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is proper, hard SF, where the plot is driven by science, deeply thought out, a gripping kind of scientific whodunnit, though the question is not ‘what did the murderer do?’ so much as ‘what did the laws of physics come up with next?’

It’s really good, and free of any lit. fic. overhead or pretensions, just a great story, enthrallingly told, for you to eat through without stopping, like a bag of salted peanuts. Loved it.
