Andy Weir Project Hail Mary Audiobook – 🎧

In this incredible new science-based thriller from the number-one New York Times best-selling author of The Martian, a lone astronaut must save the Earth from disaster.

Ryland Grace is the sole survivor on a desperate last-ditch mission; if he fails, humanity and the Earth will perish.

Except he doesn’t know it right now. He has forgotten his own name, let alone the nature of his assignment or how to complete it.

He only knows he’s been sleeping for a very long time. And he’s just woken up millions of miles away from home, with nothing but two corpses for company.

With his crewmates gone and his memories hazily returning, he realizes he is now faced with an impossible task. It’s up to him, alone on this tiny ship cobbled together by every government and space agency on the planet and hurled into the depths of space, to overcome an extinction-level threat to our species.

And he might have a chance thanks to an unexpected ally.

Project Hail Mary is a tale of discovery, speculation, and survival that rivals The Martian – while taking us to places we never dreamed of going.

Andy Weir Biography

Andy Weir is a best-selling American author whose works include The Martian, Artemis, and Project Hail Mary. His first novel, The Martian, was adapted into a film of the same name.

Life

Andy Weir was born on the 16th of June, 1972. Weir began writing science fiction in his twenties and has been publishing work on his website for many years. His first notable work was «The Egg» a short story that has been adapted into a number of YouTube videos and a one-act play.
In 2016, Weir received the John W. Campbell Award for «Best New Writer»

Weir wanted The Martian to be as scientifically accurate as possible, so he conducted extensive research into orbital mechanics, Martian conditions, the history of manned spaceflight, and botany. He even created his own program to forecast the best launch dates and distances between Earth and Mars.

He used to be a computer programmer, but his success as an author has led him to abandon programming in order to focus more on writing. In his novel, Andy Weir created software to calculate the ship’s arrival times (on Earth and on Mars) down to the minute.

Work

Weir first made The Martian available as a free serial on his website before making it available on Kindle. The novel, which was initially sold for 99 cents, quickly rose to the top of the Kindle bestsellers list. After being approached by a literary agent, Weir sold the book’s rights to Crown Publishing Group. The novel’s print edition (slightly edited from the original) debuted at #12 on The New York Times bestseller list. The novel was dubbed «the best pure sci-fi novel in years» by the Wall Street Journal.

«Lacero» a fan-fiction story written by Weir, was published in the 2016 edition of Ready Player One, making it canonical to the fictional universe of the book. The story serves as a prequel to the main novel.

Weir published The Principles of Uncertainty, a collection of short stories, on the short fiction app platform TAPAS in 2016.

However, he put «Zhek» on hold for another more science-based story called Artemis, which was released in November 2017 and is about the life and times of Jasmin «Jazz» Bashara, a young woman living in the titular Artemis, the first city on the moon set in 2080-2090. He has another book out called Project Hail Mary, and Ryan Gosling has agreed to produce and star in the film adaptation.

For a short time, he was also working on a CBS TV pilot called Mission Control, formerly known as Durga. The show’s Executive Producer is Simon Kinberg, who has worked on many X-Men films, Legion (TV), Star Wars Rebels (TV), Cinderella (2015), and The Martian as a producer, as well as Director Jeremy Podeswa (Game of Thrones, True Detective).

Peyton List (Mad Men, The Flash, Tomorrow People), David Guintoli (Grimm), Poppy Montgomery (Without A Trace), Ellen Wroe, Christina Marie Moses (The Originals), Mercy Malick, Leiv Fiehler, Deke Anderson, Karan Oberoi, Ben Levin, Alfred Hsing, Vinny Chhibber, and Kyle Pierson are rumored to have joined the cast.

Weir is currently working on a new novel, tentatively titled Zhek. He describes it as follows: «A more traditional science fiction novel. It has aliens, telepathy, and faster-than-light travel, among other things.»

Personal life

Weir was born in California and raised there. He is the only child in the family. His father is an accelerator physicist, and his mother is an electrical engineer. His parents divorced when he was eight years old. Weir grew up reading classic science fiction such as Arthur C. Clarke’s and Isaac Asimov’s works.

He began working as a computer programmer for Sandia National Laboratories at the age of 15. He attended UC San Diego and majored in computer science, but he did not graduate. He worked as a programmer for companies such as AOL, Palm, MobileIron, and Blizzard, where he worked on the video game Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness.

Weir began writing science fiction in his twenties and has been publishing work on his website for many years. From 2002 to 2008, he also wrote a web comic called «Casey and Andy» which featured fictionalized «mad scientist» versions of himself, Casey, and his friends (including writer Jennifer Brozek); he also briefly worked on another comic called «Chesire Crossing» which bridged Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, and The Wizard of Oz. Following the failure of his first novel attempt, «Theft of Pride» the attention he received has been credited with helping launch his writing career. His first notable work was «The Egg» a short story that has been adapted into a number of YouTube videos and a one-act play.

He currently resides in a rented two-bedroom maisonette in Mountain View, California. He never visited the set of the film adaptation of The Martian in Budapest, where most of the scenes set on Mars were shot at Korda Studios because he is terrified of flying. However, in 2015, he was able to fly to Houston to visit the NASA Johnson Space Center and to San Diego to attend the San Diego Comic-Con thanks to therapy and medication.

Weir has declared himself an atheist. He considers himself a fiscally conservative social liberal, and he attempts to keep his political views out of his writing.

Project Hail Mary Audiobook Excerpt Transcript

What’S two plus two something about the question irritates me, I’m tired. I drift back to sleep a few minutes pass. Then I hear it again once two plus two, the soft feminine voice lacks emotion and the pronunciation is identical to the previous time. She said it. It’S a computer, a computer is hassling me, and I’m even more irritated.

Now I say I’m surprised, I meant to say, leave me alone a completely reasonable response in my opinion, but I failed to speak incorrectly says the computer. What’S two plus two times for an experiment, I’ll try to say hello, but I say it incorrectly. What’S two plus two what’s going on, I want to find out, but I don’t have much to work with. I can’t see I can’t hear anything other than the computer. I can’t even feel no that’s not true.

I feel something I’m lying down, I’m on something soft, a bed. I think my eyes are closed. That’S not so bad. All I have to do is open them. I try, but nothing happens.

Why can’t I open my eyes? Open and open, dang it. Oh, I felt a wiggle that time my eyelids moved. I felt it open my eyelids creep up and blinding light seared. My retinas, I say I keep my eyes open with the sheer force of will.

Everything is white, with shades of pain, and eye movement detected. My tormentor says: what’s two plus two, the whiteness lessens my eyes are adjusting, and I start to see shapes but nothing sensible. Yet, let’s see, can I move my hands no feet. Also no, but I can move my mouth right. I’ve been saying stuff, not stuff.

That makes sense, but it’s something incorrect. What’S two plus two, the shapes start to make sense. I’m in a bed, it’s kind of oval-shaped, led lights, shine down on me, and cameras in the ceiling watch, my every move. Creepy, though that is I’m much more concerned about the robot arms. The two brushed steel armatures hang from the ceiling.

Each has an assortment of disturbing penetration. Looking at tools where hands should be can’t say I like the look of that [ Music ], I say: will that do incorrectly? What’S two plus two dang it, I summon all my willpower and inner strength. Also, I’m starting to panic. A little good I use that too, for I finally say correctly.

Thank god. I can talk sort of I breathe a sigh of relief. Wait I just controlled my breathing. I take another breath on purpose. My mouth is sore.

My throat is sore, but it’s my soreness. I have control, I’m wearing a breathing mask it’s tight to my face and connected to a hose that goes behind my head. Can I get up no, but I can move my head a little. I look down at my body I’m naked and connected to more tubes than I can count, there’s one in each arm, one in each leg, one in my gentleman’s equipment, and two that disappear under my thigh I’m guessing one of them is up where the sun doesn’t Shine that can’t be good, also, I’m covered with electrodes the sensor type stickers like for an EKG but they’re all over the place. Well, at least they’re only on my skin instead of jammed into me.
