    Artemis, Andy Weir's new hit

    Artemis is an amazing novel, plain and simple. It goes into science fiction while seeming completely, shocking possible. Overall a great read and an absolute page turner. Just wonderful!

    As awesome as the Martian

    Incredibly smart, thrilling and funny. An enriching and compulsive page-turner.

    Loved it!

    I loved The Martian, so when I had the opportunity to read Andy Weir’s new book, I jumped at it. And happily, Artemis didn’t disappoint. Make no mistake, this is in no way related to The Martian, aside from the fact that it’s set in a future where travel between Earth and the moon (and other planets) has become possible. Technology has progressed to the point that it’s become possible for travelers to vacation on the moon, and to live there to provide support for all the services required to service this new travel industry. At heart though, this is a heist novel, where Jazz Bashara is a young woman who has lived on the moon for most of her life - she wasn’t born there, but she doesn’t remember Earth. She has no desire to go back to Earth, and is trying to save money to upgrade her living quarters, but she’s having difficulties getting there when she receives an opportunity to make a lot of money if she can pull off this one little heist. But being a heist novel, of course complications arise. Like The Martian, Artemis is full of details of what life on the moon could be like, but Weir manages to keep all those details from becoming mind-numbing. They explain how things work, and why Jazz’s mission is so complicated. Jazz is surrounded by interesting characters. It’s fast-paced, exciting, and kept me reading long into the night. I highly recommend this one. Copy provided by Netgalley and Crown Publishing in exchange for an unbiased review.

    A real page turner!

    An excellent second novel from Andy Weir. His vision of a lunar community and the novel society that would develop to inhabit it smacks of a plausible near future. He has again written a science fiction novel that was well researched, humorous, and hard to put down. Bravo! And keep em coming!
