Welcome to a new Waiting on Wednesday, happy Humpday! Today I am featuring Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir, a book I am very hyped about.
This is a book people probably don’t expect I would want to read. Haha, even by going by my blog you all know I am not a big sci-fi person. I do read it from time to time, but not a whole lot. However… the description of this book had me hooked. Amnesia, waking up from a long sleep, dead crewmates, and more. I mean, I am so curious about it that even my small sci-fi love heart is hyped. I am so curious as to what happened, where he is, who he is, and I am also eager to find out if his ally is a good one or a bad one. And hello, what is threatening the earth? Oh my! I also wonder how the story will be told, just normal or in a special way?
Also, if I am not into it in the end… I am sure I could give it to my husband, he is more into sci-fi than I am. XD
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 a computer and two corpses for company.
His crewmates dead, his memories fuzzily returning, 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.
Part scientific mystery, part dazzling interstellar journey, The Hail Mary is a tale of discovery, speculation, and survival to rival The Martian–while taking us to places it never dreamed of going.
