Andy Weir’s Project Hail Mary audiobook is set in the near future and follows Ryland Grace, a junior high school teacher turned astronaut who awakens from a coma with amnesia. He gradually recalls that he was sent to the Tau Ceti solar system, 12 light-years from Earth, to find a way to reverse a solar dimming event that could lead to humanity’s extinction.
Despite the fact that Project Hail Mary audiobook appears to be a long journey, narrated by one man who barely gathers his memories and rediscovers his identity (ironic, right, that a world’s future depends on a man who tries to redefine who he is and how he finds his true mission to exist), this book is truly a precious, addictive gem! It’s brilliant, sophisticated, and engaging, but it’s also thrilling and claustrophobic: the gloomy portions balance out the funny, joyful bits.
The plot of Project Hail Mary audiobook by Andy Weir is divided into two halves, each told chronologically. Beginning with the tale on board the spaceship Hail Mary, where Ryland Grace gradually regains his memories. This tale is frequently intercut with flashbacks that show prior events leading up to the Hail Mary’s launch. A worldwide dimming event is expected in the near future, coinciding with the creation of a brilliant line from the Sun to Venus. It is estimated that the exponential pace of dimming will culminate in a catastrophic ice age within 30 years. […]
Ryland Grace is the last survivor on a desperate last-ditch mission—if he fails, mankind and the world will die. Except he doesn’t know it right now. He has forgotten his own identity, let alone the nature of his mission or how to fulfill it. He just knows he’s been sleeping for a very long time. And he’s just woken up millions of kilometers away from home, with nothing but two corpses for companionship. With his crewmates gone and his memories hazily returning, Ryland recognizes he is now faced with an impossible job. Hurtling through space on this small ship, it’s up to him to solve an unfathomable scientific mystery—and save our species from annihilation.
With the clock ticking and the nearest human being light-years away, he’ll have to do it all on his own. Does he, or doesn’t he? You can only find out in Project Hail Mary audiobook on Free Audiobooks Online.
Project Hail Mary audiobook is half scientific experiment and half zany buddy comedy — and it works so brilliantly! Andy Weir is obviously a nice nerd. It’s clear how thrilled he gets from odd science items – and his excitement is contagious (not Astrophage-infectious). Done with endearing overexcited enthusiasm, full of sarcastic self-deprecation and humor as a coping mechanism, and teaching us science in the same way that a good junior high science teacher might explain concepts to a group of overexcited preteens. And you can bet that Weir exhibits his work, and even those unfamiliar with science should be able to understand it because he makes it very approachable and non-daunting.
