About the book

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, Ryland realizes that an impossible task now confronts him. Hurtling through space on this tiny ship, it’s up to him to puzzle out an impossible scientific mystery—and conquer an extinction-level threat to our species.

And with the clock ticking down and the nearest human being light-years away, he’s got to do it all alone.

Or does he?

My notes:

This is an awesome book, you start somewhere in space with a person that cant really remember anything about where he is nor why – and then the plot starts.  As the astronaut slowly begin to remember his past it become more and more obvious how fu…. he is (as is the whole of humanity)..  The book is VERY well written and if you like scifi, you WILL love this..

Oh, and I hear it is likely there will be a movie..

I usually listen to audiobooks which is why the length is in hours and minutes

Listening to audiobooks to me has the advantage that you can do it while you walk, train, commute and just relax.
