The Martian is one of my favorite books, as a science nerd and a space nerd, it hit all the marks for me. But when Artemis came out, I thought it was just ok, so I was super nervous about PHM. I wanted so badly to love it… AND I DID!!!
I don’t want to give away any spoilers and that’s hard because everything is a spoiler. My favorite character is even a spoiler. 🙈 IYKYK 🤗 The basic plot is there is an otherworldly threat to the Earth’s survival and the time is ticking before it’s too late to fix it. We join an astronaut who wakes up mid-mission with no recollection of who he is or what’s going on. Through a series of minute discoveries of the ship around him and intermittent flashbacks we learn what the threat is and just how in-equipped our hero is to actually save the day. This book is awesome! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
