Project Hail Mary book cover
Project Hail Mary
A Novel
Andy Weir - 2021-05-04
Goodreads Rating
A lone survivor is awakened on a desperate mission to save humanity and the earth from extinction. But there's a catch: he can't remember his name, his assignment, or even how to complete it. Armed with only his wits and an unexpected ally, he embarks on an interstellar journey to conquer an impossible task. Part scientific mystery, part dazzling adventure, Project Hail Mary is a survival tale that rivals The Martian while exploring uncharted territories of space.

"Venture into the 19th century with an epic tale of sea-faring adventure, exploring the lives of Captain Robert Fitzroy and Charles Darwin aboard 'The Beagle'. This book delves into the themes of adventure, emotion, tragedy, and history, all while shedding light on the clash of beliefs between two men: the Christian Tory aristocrat and his passenger, the liberal minor cleric who challenged everything Fitzroy stood for. Experience the thrill and heartache of this gripping tale."
