#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.


  • Science for everyone!

    If reading this book doesn’t make you love, science and the possibilities of life in the universe, nothing will! This book has everything friendship, heroism and a story that keeps you on the edge of your seat, the whole time. If everyone wrote and read science fiction like this, we would have many more children growing up to thoughtfully study the world!
  • Amaze!

    One of the best books I’ve read! From start to finish the author does a phenomenal job of captivating the reader. At no point was I bored, I literally could not put the book down. Every character is excellently written! I’m just sad I’ll never be able to read it for the first time again. I recommend the audiobook version too as the narrator does an awesome job with the voices!
  • Loved it!

    I absolutely love Andy Weir’s writing. Maybe I’m a nerd, but I simply cannot get enough of it. Every detail, thought out. Not a single hole left unexplained, every event in this book, were it real, is completely explained. I cannot wait for more of his work to be released. Loved it.
