Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir Book Summary
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.

NecessityOk, I do love unlikely heroes and Hail Mary provided 1 for sure with an additional backup character. Lots of scientific verbiage way beyond me but found it weighty only when I was impatient for more interaction with the characters. Problem solving! Yep… tons of that! Really an enjoyable read….Score: 5/5

Instant ClassicMight be my new favorite book!.Score: 5/5
Hard to put downJust like Martian, this story is filled with easily digestible scientific game of “cat and mouse”, which permeating its plot keeps you on the edge of the sit. What makes it even more interesting is that the situation we are put in is even more plausible - preventing end of our world, saving our planet from catastrophe. The humor and the endearing friendship of main characters gives it a strong emotional connection to the reader. I thoroughly enjoyed it..Score: 5/5
Enjoyable and entertainingThis book is super fun. It takes you on a wild ride and by the end you won’t be able to put it down. My only complaint is that the book starts off very funny but quickly the humor subsides and goes away for a long time and by the time the author reintroduces humor it’s kind of too late you’re more invested in what will happen next to laugh. But all in all it’s a great read I enjoyed it very much..Score: 4/5

Binge reading for science lovers!I normally don’t read this enthusiastically but I could not put Project Hail Mary down. I’m a science lover (not an expert) and the science felt believable, added so much to the story, and was easy to understand. It gave me the emotional experience I had hoped to experience in the movie Gravity but didn’t until reading this book. I got so emotional near the end. So much to love about the main characters, even their flaws. Just wow. Can’t wait to read what this Andy Weir comes up with next!!.Score: 5/5

Not what I hope forVery formulaic. Not as engaging as I expected..Score: 2/5
Generally satisfyingIt’s a good read, there were some moments when I didn’t believe the science, but I’m not an astrophysicist so it was either “I thought it didn’t make sense” or “it didn’t make sense”. It was probably the former but I enjoyed it nonetheless. It kept me wanting to turn the page and that’s what matters. I enjoy stories that venture to the stars and it delivered..Score: 4/5
Definitely recommendThe narration of the audiobook is really good and so is the story. And the science They explain is also very intriguing..Score: 4/5
Surprising, funny, and filled will serious science action!Another wonderful book. The characters immediately grow on you, the plot develops and twists, and keeps you on edge enough to be compelling without being disorienting. What could possibly be better than Danger, Humor, and Science???? :-).Score: 5/5
Loved every pageI really enjoy Andy Weir’s writing style and how his books are filled with conflicts. They’re not solved by accident but instead through plausible scientific processes. His “Possible Science Fiction” should be an official genre style. I was attached to this book right from the start and thoroughly enjoyed every page. Looking forward to his next book! Well done!.Score: 5/5
