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.

“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.

    An amazing, and quite ORIGINAL adventure! I saw and felt everything. Thanks to the skill of Weir, I followed the science effortlessly, with the resulting tensions, victories and humor. Amazing read that allows you to feel like you are living it.

    I cannot begin to say how much I loved this book. I loved the Martian but this is another level. I couldn’t put it down and the ending is just so perfect it makes me want to start over and read it all again. Wow wow wow is all I can say

    It’s a page turner!!!
  • I believed The Martian would be his best book ever

    By Hodar
    In my humble opinion, this piece of work is even more entertaining than The Martian. I am not a critic, I am not, nor claim to be an expert on what makes an “American Classic”, but I know what I like. And I loved reading this book. Well done, sir
  • Meh

    By Jenkem Hunter
    I found the main character annoying and solutions to key problems in the main character faced to be just a little too convenient. Sad to say it was more of a slog than an enjoyable read.
  • Kind of long and times boring

    By akcondor
    Without a doubt the best science fiction book I’ve read in long time… possibly ever!
  • Too much math

    By Avid scanner
    Love the story, I couldn’t put it down but at times, the math got incomprehensible.
