Project Hail Mary

By Andy Weir

Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir, A sci-fi thriller about a lone astronaut on a mission to save the world. Project Hail Mary is set to be released on May 04, 2021.


Project Hail Mary is a science-based thriller about a lone astronaut who must save the earth from disaster. Ryland Grace is the sole survivor on a desperate, last-chance mission. If he fails, humanity and the earth itself will perish.

But Ryland wakes up alone and with no memory. 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, the remnants of his crewmates, for company.

As his memories fuzzily return, 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.

Early Book Reviews

The Bibliofile’s Review of Project Hail Mary is coming soon. For now, here are some early reviews of Project Hail Mary:

“Project Hail Mary is a return to the same energy of The Martian. Its that humor-in-an-almost-hopeless-situation quality that made the story of Mark Watney so much fun. Andy Weir once again manages to use science to bring an engaging and thrilling narrative to the page without making it feel ‘too smart’ or hard to follow.

The story of Dr. Ryland Grace unfolds in stages and you learn his history at the same time he does, which helps the story to unfold in a very organic way, but everything is not as it seems at first. All in all this was a book that refused to be put down until it was finished.” — From Stacy on Goodreads

“Wow! Andy Weir has done it again and I think this one might be better than The Martian. All the right tension and drama, heartbreak and hope, and quite a bit of humor. The reader cares about the characters and roots for their survival against impossible odds. This is a survival story at it most basic form but on top of that it is about cooperation, friendship despite major differences, and sacrifice without selfishness.” — From Melanie on Goodreads
