STAR RATINGS GUIDE

LOVED The Martian. This Might Be Better.

THE BIRDICT

🧡 It took me ages to get round to this. I saw The Martian as a one-off, thought Andy Weir would be a one-hit pony. I was, in a word, wrong. But here are some more words…

💚 Listen to this for the dry wit, for the authentically lovable characters, the touching friendships and universe-wide stakes. And all backed up by just as much science as fiction.

SQUAWKING THE TALK

🎧 The performance and production of this audiobook are utterly fantastic. Narrator Ray Power proves himself yet again as a master of expression and comic timing. For more of his excellent work, listen to his performance of Peter Clines’ 14.

🎧 There are little touches throughout the recording that add so much to the experience of the whole performance.

Project Hail Mary

THE BLURB

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, 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, 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.
