The best-selling 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.
Bringing to life Weir's brash, whip-smart protagonist is actress Rosario Dawson (Marvel's The Defenders, Sin City, Death Proof). With the breathless immediacy of one realizing they're one cracked helmet visor away from oblivion, Dawson deftly captures Jazz's first-person perspective – all while delivering sarcastic Weir-ian one-liners and cracking wise in the face of death. And with a cast of diverse characters from all walks of life calling Artemis home, Dawson tonally somersaults to voice Kenyan prime ministers, Ukrainian scientists, and Saudi welders. It's a performance that transports listeners right alongside Jazz, matching her step for step on every lunar inch of her pulse-pounding journey.

But this is a great book. I could not put it down.
The story takes place on the first city on the moon, when this city is just 20 years old. There is of course the scientific and engineering realistic background that Andy Weir displayed on the Martian and, in addition, the story of a young under-achiving girl, that the author makes you really care about.
The story is shorter than the Martian, but no less appealing. The protagonist is very different, though. No admired austronaut, but a poor, a little scoundrel girl with no studies, looking for a get-rich-quicly scheme.
Cannot recommend it enough.
També el paisatge humà de la ciutat resulta molt versemblant.
Es podria afegir que hi ha molta acció. La trama està en general bé excepte alguns pocs punts on les motivacions i decisions dels personatges resulten una mica forçades. Cal tenir en compte que en aquesta novel·la Andy Weir introdueix molta interacció humana, al contrari de la seva anterior novel·la d'èxit Mars, i potser li ha faltat una mica d'ofici en aquest sentit. Però vaja, no resulta extrany trobar aquesta mancança en el gènere de la ciència ficció.
Per als amants de la ciència ficció crec que és una novel·la molt recomanable.
I really enjoyed it and lots of interesting and enjoyable facts come to the surface of the moon. I just wish there was more of it - or a least more of Andy's books available.
The amount of research that goes into his books is head-spinning.

I read Artemis last year and I’ve also just read it again. Andy Weir certainly knows how to keep his readers hooked. Other reviewers have stated that he’s trying to tick all the boxes of political correctness. Possibly but I don’t really care - I think Andy writes as if he himself is the central character. In this case here he is playing the part of a younger Saudi Arab female. Does he get it right? Probably not, but it doesn’t really matter. I’ve watched him in interview on YouTube and he’s great fun, and his personality shows in this book.
What matters here is the story, and it doesn’t disappoint. It reads at a cracking pace from start to finish, and the reader will get their science fix just like in The Martian... it’s all so believable. The critics should give him a break...he deserves a massive pat on the back for what he’s achieved in such a short time. They even use an edited version of The Martian for science classes in schools.
I’m glad he wrote this story and I can’t wait for the film.
The books starts with a couple of people on the moon surface and there appears to be an issue with one of the tanks and they are trying to get back into the Bubble. The EVA Master is ordering the other person to stop and connect his tanks to their suit, but they are adamant they are going to do it their way.
What really surprised me, is the protagonist (the other person on the surface) was female. Whether this is unconscious bias or that The Martian was male based, I'm not sure, but probably a bit of both.
I loved the character of Jazz, she was sassy, smart and resourceful and is the resident smuggler in Artemis, the only city on the moon. She has been on the Moon since she was 6 years old and really wants to become an EVA Master so she can quickly save up enough money - we only find out what for towards the end of the book.
She has a fractious relationship with her father and with the Head of Security at Artemis, Rudy - mainly because he is trying to get her deported back to Earth by getting evidence of her smuggling activities.
As Jazz is trying hard to make money, the richest person in town Trond Landvik (Norgegian), who she regularly smuggles for, makes her an offer than she can't refuse - to destroy a business on the Moon so Trond can take over. As Jazz is highly intelligent, she finds a way, to do this, but things really don't go smoothly and she discovers that somebody is now trying to kill her. She has to use her wits and street smarts to say alive.
It's a great book and Andy, if you happen to read this, can you do a sequel, Jazz has so much more to offer us. I would love this story to be made into a TV series rather than a film, as you have more time to show character development and build the story.
My only regret, is that I left it so long before reading it.
