The Hail Mary Project The latest from science fiction writer Andy Weir is like Weir’s first novel. Mars. It’s a fast-paced romp through insurmountable problems after insurmountable issues focusing on the protagonist flipping through each issue with fast-paced first-person narration and an endless supply of ScienceTM.
Speaking more about the book, while avoiding spoils is very difficult. Mars This book opens the story of a single human being in awe ̵1; our narrator awakens with complete amnesia and doesn’t know who he is, where, or what he should do.

But if you are looking for a story of someone running their logic through situations overwhelmed by physics and math and a fast stopwatch and one line, this is the story for you.
