Number-One Audible and New York Times Audio Best Seller
A lone astronaut must save the earth from disaster in this incredible new science-based thriller from the number-one New York Times best-selling author of The Martian.
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, he realizes that an impossible task now confronts him. Alone on this tiny ship that's been cobbled together by every government and space agency on the planet and hurled into the depths of space, it's up to him to conquer an extinction-level threat to our species.
And thanks to an unexpected ally, he just might have a chance.
Part scientific mystery, part dazzling interstellar journey, 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.

Project Hail Mary
Love, love, love this book. It’s the best book I’ve read in a while and it’s not one I would typically choose (not a huge sci-fi fan.) I absolutely loved the narrator as well - he really helped bring the story to life.
Great for all ages!
I listen to the book on audio and my 15-year-old son read the book and we both loved it! We “fan girled” over it! It is absolutely a book that stays with you and that you can discuss for hours. Andy Weir is a sci-fi God! The book is good good good!
The first half is a tough act to follow - he just nails the intrigue and pacing so well. The ending was solid but fell off just a touch. The supporting character was amazing.
