Publisher Description

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • From the author of The Martian, a lone astronaut must save the earth from disaster in this “propulsive” (Entertainment Weekly), cinematic thriller full of suspense, humor, and fascinating science—in development as a major motion picture starring Ryan Gosling.

HUGO AWARD FINALIST • ONE OF THE YEAR’S BEST BOOKS: Bill Gates, GatesNotes, New York Public Library, Parade, Newsweek, Polygon, Shelf Awareness, She Reads, Kirkus Reviews, Library Journal • “An epic story of redemption, discovery and cool speculative sci-fi.”—USA Today

“If you loved The Martian, you’ll go crazy for Weir’s latest.”—The Washington Post


Ryland Grace is the sole survivor on a desperate, last-chance mission—and if he fails, humanity and the earth itself will perish.

Except that right now, he doesn’t know that. He can’t even remember his own name, let alone the nature of his assignment or how to complete it.

All he knows is that he’s been asleep for a very, very long time. And he’s just been awakened to find himself millions of miles from home, with nothing but two corpses for company.

His crewmates dead, his memories fuzzily returning, Ryland realizes that an impossible task now confronts him. Hurtling through space on this tiny ship, it’s up to him to puzzle out an impossible scientific mystery—and conquer an extinction-level threat to our species.

And with the clock ticking down and the nearest human being light-years away, he’s got to do it all alone.

Or does he?

An irresistible interstellar adventure as only Andy Weir could deliver, Project Hail Mary is a tale of discovery, speculation, and survival to rival The Martian—while taking us to places it never dreamed of going.

Sooooo entertaining and mind-expanding

Andy Weir’s writing appeals to the optimist and humanist in me, and it’s deeply funny. If you love high stakes and tear-wrenching compassion, Weir’s the author for you.

Amazingly genius!

This is the same author who wrote the Martian in which the movie is based on. He has a new book! I have never been at the edge of my seat by reading a science fiction book as this! This astronaut’s adventure in space to save the human race and earth is thrilling. All his experiments and troubleshooting with ingenuity using science (micro biology, biology, chemistry, physics, etc.) and engineering is so brilliant. I’ve learn so much from just reading this book! Wow! What a great genius book this is! You don’t need to be a nerd to appreciate the science and engineering experience in this book. It was a great ride like an excellent movie! I loved every bit of it.
