Artemis by Andy Weir: Book Review

One comment

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. -Goodreads

My Review

My Rating: 3/5

Reading The Martian ruined this book for me. This book was pretty good and I enjoyed reading it. The main character was sarcastic, funny, and fully developed, but she just sounded so much like the protagonist of The Martian. And Weir needs to make his protagonists sounds different if I am ever to enjoy his books fully individually. I hope the next one fixes the voice. Apart from that, I am not a huge fan of the heist in literature, and this book certainly has a few of those tropes, but it was still fun to follow along. Not a bad read.
