#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.

Really really awesome! My new Sci-Fi obsession is not letting me down and Andy Weir does not disappoint with Hail Mary! Absolutely awesome book! Really quite similar to the ‘Bobiverse’ triology in the sense that everything happens in outer space, AND (this is huge!) has the same narrator - who might be honestly one of the best narrators ever. I love how much physics is mixed into the book and the relationship that develops between our main Character and Rocky is adorable! Great read 👏👏 Thank you @KmTorre @StevenGreene

Hail Mary is an absolute masterpiece! It is incredible how a book that for most of its pages is the same two people in the same one place can be so captivating. The characters, especially Rocky, are very well thought out and gain amazing depth on just a few pages. “Happy, happy, happy!”

Deliciously geeky and a bit gimmicky. Enjoyed exploring what could lay ahead for humanity.

One of the best books I read in 2021. Highly recommend listening to the audiobook, it adds a depth to the telling with the use of sound as the alien language! Reminded me of the film Arrival.

It’s not often that I read a Sci-Fi novel like this one. Coming out of Authority, I felt a little depressed, not gonna lie. But Project Hail Mary feels like classic SF - just sciencing the crap out of problems.

The Martian I found amazing. Project Hail Mary was good, has a lot of interesting ideas we can ponder. I was put off by the strong stereotypes for so many characters. The step through problem solving in this book didn’t seem as natural as in The Martian as we had pages of it for everything from very early in the book.

Honestly amazing, so different to the martian but still familiar in a good way. The Main character is similar to the main character in the martian but still unique. The amount of plot twists is perfect, it doesn’t before expected and I was left guessing the whole time and the end is absolutely incredible.

Bestseller Weir (The Martian) delivers a suspenseful portrait of human ingenuity and resilience in this powerful narrative of a desperate effort to save Earth. Ryland Grace awakens from a coma with no memories of his identity or how he came to be alone on a spaceship. Weir creates instant engagement by toggling between Grace’s efforts to make sense of his present circumstances and flashbacks that gradually paint an unsettling picture of his life before. Grace worked as a microbiologist until the negative response to his theory that water may not be required to sustain alien life drove him from his research to a job teaching middle school science. That career is disrupted, however, after astronomers discover that the sun is losing heat, imperiling the future of humanity. The cause seems to be a microscopic life-form that feeds on the star’s energy, and Grace is drafted into the international team of scientists working to combat the impending catastrophe. Weir cleverly doles out pieces of Grace’s backstory and information about the mission that landed him in space, tossing in curveballs and judiciously using humor to break the tension as the story builds to an unexpectedly moving ending. This is a winner.
