Description

Artemis The bestselling author of The Martian returns with an irresistible new near-future thriller—a heist story set on the moon.

Jasmine Bashara never signed up to be a hero. She just wanted to get rich.
 
Not crazy, eccentric-billionaire rich, like many of the visitors to her hometown of Artemis, humanity’s first and only lunar colony. Just rich enough to move out of her coffin-sized apartment and eat something better than flavored algae. Rich enough to pay off a debt she’s owed for a long time.
 
So when a chance at a huge score finally comes her way, Jazz can’t say no. Sure, it requires her to graduate from small-time smuggler to full-on criminal mastermind. And it calls for a particular combination of cunning, technical skills, and large explosions—not to mention sheer brazen swagger. But Jazz has never run into a challenge her intellect can’t handle, and she figures she’s got the ‘swagger’ part down.
 
The trouble is, engineering the perfect crime is just the start of Jazz’s problems. Because her little heist is about to land her in the middle of a conspiracy for control of Artemis itself.
 
Trapped between competing forces, pursued by a killer and the law alike, even Jazz has to admit she’s in way over her head. She’ll have to hatch a truly spectacular scheme to have a chance at staying alive and saving her city.
 
Jazz is no hero, but she is a very good criminal.
 
That’ll have to do.
 
Propelled by its heroine’s wisecracking voice, set in a city that’s at once stunningly imagined and intimately familiar, and brimming over with clever problem-solving and heist-y fun, Artemis is another irresistible brew of science, suspense, and humor from #1 bestselling author Andy Weir.

    Enjoyable reading. A tad intentionally confusing about the main characters age at the beginning but it got sorted out. Not sure it was necessary. Overall it was entertaining.
  • Boring

    Not a great read. Didn’t do much for me.
  • Forward, concise

    Fast paced, high dialogue, and technical jargon that was a bit hard to visualize (pushing button, switches, gears, etc.). Enjoyable read overall; satisfying ending TY, Mr. Weir
  • Say goodbye to your friends for a day or two

    You won’t put this book or iPhone or iPad down till you finish. The heck with the rest of your earth-bound world. I spent a portion of each page imagining seeing it on the big screen. Who will play whom? This will be even bigger than ‘The Martian’. I can’t hail Andy’s creativity any higher. His narrative style is unique but the innovation he brings to the story is overwhelmingly compelling. Download and begin! You can thank me later.

    Pure drivel, predictable, boring with an unlikeable main character. Massive amounts of details do not make great stories.
  • Not bad

    Not bad for what it was but I was hoping for more after The Martian which was amazing. The characters were decent but the environment wasn’t well realized.
  • Young adult sci-if?

    Mildly entertaining with juvenile writing. Could have used heavy editing.

    Wow! It’s been along time since I’ve read real science fiction. I’ve been reading science fiction since the early 60s and had sort of lost touch with the science part of science-fiction, not speculative, not fantasy... real science fiction! With likable interesting characters too! Keep up the good work. Keep on writing!

    “The Martian” was a masterpiece. Artemis was a piece of something else
  • Should have left it at The Martian

    Stupid plot, politically correct but implausible characters. I can think of dozens of reasons why this book doesn’t keep up with even basic technology abilities from 2017, and I am a liberal arts major. Save your money. Andy, your science is okay but your plotting and character development is awful.
