Review: Artemis - Vilma Iris | Lifestyle Blogger

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.

Artemis
By Andy Weir

Review: Artemis

Andy Weir, author of the hugely popular THE MARTIAN, is back with a fast-paced sci-fi thriller, all about a heist gone wrong on the moon. Rife with geeky details, whip-smart humor, ratcheting suspense and interesting characters, it’s a wildly exciting sophomore effort.

I listened to the book on Audible, which was performed by actress Rosario Dawson. She brilliantly captures the spirit and grit of Jazz Bashara—our misanthropic protagonist infamous for her underutilized genius (to her perpetual annoyance) and petty criminality.

Jasmine, aka Jazz, is a twenty-something porter and smuggler in Artemis—the domed city on the moon. With dreams of overcoming her somewhat impoverished circumstances, Jazz is unable to turn away the opportunity of a lifetime, offered by the wealthy entrepreneur Trond Landvik. What’s a little sabotage in the grand scheme of things anyway?

Well, it turns out it’s a bigger deal than she planned when people turn up dead and she ends up on the run. What’s worse is that a whole lot of bad is headed straight for Artemis, and only she can save her beloved city—all she needs to do is come up with another plan.

Weir deftly weaves science, economics, politics, humor and suspense into this nail-biting narrative, while Dawson’s performance draws you in, making the entire experience exhilarating, fun and over entirely too soon. Read it—listen to it—you’ll love this sci-fi-noir thriller!
