Artemis
Artemis | Andy Weir
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.

Nothing quite like staying in during the rain with a good book and going through your photo albums.
Great book; Andy Weir doesn't miss with character arcs or intense plot or storytelling(even though so far he always gives us a happy ending). Never gets old or tired. #moon

I understand what people disliked about Jazz. I can agree to a point. I think Weir overdid the sexual innuendo in this one. That is my only criticism. This was a fun, quick, thrilling read with plenty of twists. The science was enough to keep one interested and make you go "Hmmmm." I once wanted to live on the moon. Weir let me do that in spades. Bonus: this gave me a BINGO!! #bookspinbingo @thearomaofbooks.

Mixed reviews on this one but I rarely pay overly much attention to reviews. I am eager to read this and Project Hail Mary.

EvieBee So I‘ve never read any of his books but was considering jumping into Project Hail Mary. 2mo
BookDadGirlDad @EvieBee That's on my TBR. I enjoyed reading The Martian (as well as the movie). There is a snarkiness to his characters that I enjoy. 2mo
HeyT I liked this one. The only main thing I heard about it was that people think the main female character is written like a middle aged white guy but I mean it didn't really make me think that way so your mileage may vary. 2mo
Allkat Couldn‘t put it down. Very suspenseful! 2mo

Good book. Lots of science. The only thing that didn't thrill me was that it was like reading the Martian, but for the moon. It would be nice to see him vary his stile a bit while keeping that great science in there.

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Artemis didn‘t hold my attention quite like The Martian or Project Hail Mary, but it was still enjoyable. I had put off reading this due to negative reviews specifically regarding the protagonist Jazz, a moon colony based smuggler. Shes tough, and I liked her badass attitude even if her cockiness landed her in bad situations. The science-y stuff was interesting as usual. A decent read.

Cinfhen I gave this a so-so but I also did NOT LOVE LOVE Hail Mary or the Martian like the rest of the world. It‘s obviously me 🤷🏼‍♀️ 4mo
RamsFan1963 I'm with you @Cinfhen on The Martian, I bailed on it. I have Artemis on my TBR but I'm in no hurry to read it. 4mo

Though poorer fare than either The Martian or Project Hail Mary, Artemis is still a notable addition to the field of modern science fiction. Artemis works best as a vehicle that permits exploration of Weir‘s vision of lunar colonisation. This vision is detailed. It is well researched. And it provides sufficient insight into how we might eventually colonise the moon, that several character and plot flaws can be forgiven.

I found the tone of the main character in this one to be unrealistic and problematic at times. She's supposed to be a kick-ass Saudi woman who's lived most of her life on the moon. She comes off as a half-cocked frat boy. It felt to me like Mr. Weir was trying to earn diversity points without putting in any work. A shame, bc the plot and the science fiction elements were interesting. Read for #LMPBC #groupI

I knew going in that this had a bad rep for not being as good as The Martian but I still enjoyed this for what it is. It's light popcorn scifi where you just watch what happens and have a good time doing it. Jazz is a character and I really enjoyed watching her not live up to her potential. I also really loved the interludes of her penpal friendship as it evolved. I didn't expect to finish this in one sitting but I did.

There are just too many great books I want to read to continue trying to push through this one, even if it is a book club read. There is nothing that I despise about this book or anything; I'm just not connecting with it at all. ⬇️

Nelnjali The premise is interesting, but it isn't getting to the point fast enough, and the main character feels flat to me, snark and that is about it. Maybe I just don't connect with this author. I'm in the unpopular opinion group that couldn't get into The Martian either. Oh well, on to other books! 8mo

This was a fun sci-fi heist - a combination I didn't know I needed! The author's sense of humour really shines through, and was similar to his style in The Martian. The beginning was slow, but once the heist planning began things really picked up. Overall it was a nice, funny Saturday read.

I loved this book! It's my first read of Andy Weir and it definitely won't be my last. It's giving me original, pure sci-fi and I went through the pages like someone in a desert desperate for water. The original characters are refreshing and the image he creates for the future isn't as scary as in some other sci-fi stories. Not all has to be dystopian, and he gets that.

Jazz Bashara regularly smuggles contraband into the moon‘s first colony, called Artemis — until she gets a more lucrative but dangerous opportunity that she just can‘t pass up.

⭐️⭐️⭐️ - overall the premise was good and it was an enjoyable listen thanks to Rosario Dawson, however I feel the ending could have been worked a little better. The overall feeling that someone can get away with literally anything is a bit frustrating as a reader. Overall it was an easy read/listen & I will probably recommend it to people on the caveat that it isn‘t as good as his previous work

#TBRChallenge #ABookThats #AudioBook

Jazz was an excellent lead - occassionally cocky, self assured, feisty and fully aware if her limitations. Best of all, she was a refreshing step back from the conventionally beautiful westerner. The cast of characters around her were brilliant and vibrant, fascinatingly diverse and just generally awesome.

And honestly who isn't hooked by the idea of smuggling on the moon? I know I was.

...

TCLinrow I loved how carefully thought out the moon city was, and how much thought had gone into the law and politics of the place.

A strong 4&1/2 stars for me.

Great book overall. Listened through Audible with the excellent narration by Rosario Dawson. She nails it. Great to see Andy Weir get to try his hand at a full cast of characters, it feels like I've just seen him get significantly better as an author from The Martian to Artemis.

I expected better, but I didn't feel as strongly as so many readers, in either direction. I'll probably donate my hardcover edition (that is, I'm not likely to read again or refer to it), but I'm not going to exchange my Audible edition (I read the whole thing—just because I didn't love it, there's no reason to expect a refund. You win some; you lose some).

This was super descriptive about the science and technical details, which is not my thing. And the main character's not likable, although she gets a bit better by the end. The writing and story we're good, and it was read by Rosario Dawson, which was awesome.

Okay this is going to be a rant, but these past few weeks has me ready to move to China and be an ESL teacher. Omg, it's been a day, guys. So I work every other day at this high school, and I was told I needed brand new material in my lesson plans for the next 2 weeks. I was like no big deal, just put me on the schedule for Friday and I'll work from home since someone uses my room on days when I'm not there...(cont. in the comments)...

Rachel.Rencher But I got a call from my principal this AM and he was upset that I wanted an extra day to learn & prep 2 full weeks of brand-new material before I present it. He said my hour long prep on Monday should be enough and took me off the schedule. So now I'm in a position where I'm like do I work for free, or do I scramble on Monday morning to get everything done and just take it day by day? I'm not gonna lie, I'm feeling so under appreciated by... 2y
Rachel.Rencher Admins and students, and I have a few friends who have gone overseas to teach. One was supposed to be gone for a year and now she's been gone 7. I'm legit cleaning up my resume and looking at expat ESL jobs. Someone tell me I'm not crazy and give me tips on teaching elsewhere, because I thought it would get better once I had my own class, but nope. 😅 2y

Finished my third book for #24in48 and I have almost 16 hours on the clock! Artemis wasn‘t as good as I‘d hoped and I think that had I been reading it myself I would‘ve given up a while back but Rosario Dawson‘s narration got me to stick around. In the end it was an okay story but nothing compared to the masterpiece that is The Martian.

It's a hard-science caper story set on a lunar colony. I know it has gotten mixed reviews, but I find myself solidly Team "Pick." I loved the moon-tech geekery, and would be on board for a sequel (or series, Mr. Weir?)

Okay this is not the Martian, but you can see the same pedigree. This, Andy Weir‘s second story is not a survival tale, but is much more a heist tale set in the first city on the Moon. Yet despite this it is also a story of a resourceful individual forced to use their experience and intelligence to escape from their circumstance, albeit circumstances which they have placed themselves in. A quick read and not the worse second book I have read.

Pick w/ qualifications. It's very entertaining & I- unusually, based on reviews- liked most of the characters, including Jazz. But heist capers aren't really my thing & whenever I read/watch a story where the MCs are kinda the bad guys I get distracted from the story while deciding if the ends justify the means. In this case yes but it didn't start that way & she couldn't have predicted that when she accepted the job. Now I'm just babbling. 🤷‍♀️
