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.

Must read

I don’t usually read science fiction, but on occasion I bounce into it. This was a phenomenal book. I LOvED the character development of Grace as well as the whole story.

This book got me back into reading

I *LOVE* this book. I started with the audiobook and bought the ebook because I thought a chunk of the audiobook had been cut out (you’ll understand why if you listen to it). Now I’ve listened all the way through twice, bought the hardcover and read it through as well. I was not a reader in school or as a young adult. I tried a few different Stephen King books my wife had but could never finish them. I was scrolling through Reddit late one night and came across a thread with book recommendations. For some reason this one I noted down and downloaded the audiobook a few days later. I’m so glad I did. The idea behind the story is so interesting to me, and the author did an AMAZE job bringing it to life. I liked this so much I sought out, bought, and read the author’s other two books. Thank you Andy Weir for writing such an awesome book.
