Andy Weir has quickly jumped to the top of my favorite authors list. His follow up novel to his smash success The Martian, will be another runaway success! Artemis is a whirlwind sabotage/heist adventure set on the moon! At times I felt like I was reading the screen play for a movie like Oceans 11 where a cast of misfits is trying to pull off a huge heist under insane circumstances for a huge payoff. I loved the main character Jazz from the moment I met her. The book starts off with a bang putting Jazz immediately in a life or death situation and her intelligence and snarky sense of humor are apparent right away. She is an easy character to love and root for even when she is making incredibly risky and stupid decisions. She is a strong female lead with the male characters all falling well below her on the intelligence and charisma charts. This book will keep you on your toes from page one and keep you guessing the whole way through. Even though there is a ton of science in the book, it never makes you feel like you don’t understand the content and you won’t struggle to catch up with the novel when trying to figure out what they are talking about. Artemis and The Martian are similar in that they both are set in space, have fantastic main characters, they are easy to understand while being scientific, and pack a serious comedic punch. I think anyone who reads this book will love it and I can see this being a huge hit when it is released in November. Let’s hope there is a movie made out of this one too! I would love to see Jazz and her colorful language on the big screen. Plus the cast of additional characters all have their own quirks and flaws that make them unique and well rounded. Cheers to Andy Weir and his latest achievement!
Thank you to NetGalley and the Publisher for giving me an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Official Book Summary:
The bestselling author of The Martian returns with an irresistible new near-future thriller–a heist story set on the moon.
Jazz Bashara is a criminal.
Well, sort of. Life on Artemis, the first and only city on the moon, is tough if you’re not a rich tourist or an eccentric billionaire. So smuggling in the occasional harmless bit of contraband barely counts, right? Not when you’ve got debts to pay and your job as a porter barely covers the rent.
Everything changes when Jazz sees the chance to commit the perfect crime, with a reward too lucrative to turn down. But pulling off the impossible is just the start of her problems, as she learns that she’s stepped square into a conspiracy for control of Artemis itself—and that now, her only chance at survival lies in a gambit even riskier than the first.
