By Andy Weir
The bestselling author of The Martian returns with an irresistible new near-future thriller—a heist story set on the moon.
Jasmine Bashara never signed up to be a hero. She just wanted to get rich.
Not crazy, eccentric-billionaire rich, like many of the visitors to her hometown of Artemis, humanity’s first and only lunar colony. Just rich enough to move out of her coffin-sized apartment and eat something better than flavored algae. Rich enough to pay off a debt she’s owed for a long time.
So when a chance at a huge score finally comes her way, Jazz can’t say no. Sure, it requires her to graduate from small-time smuggler to full-on criminal mastermind. And it calls for a particular combination of cunning, technical skills, and large explosions—not to mention sheer brazen swagger. But Jazz has never run into a challenge her intellect can’t handle, and she figures she’s got the ‘swagger’ part down.
The trouble is, engineering the perfect crime is just the start of Jazz’s problems. Because her little heist is about to land her in the middle of a conspiracy for control of Artemis itself.
Trapped between competing forces, pursued by a killer and the law alike, even Jazz has to admit she’s in way over her head. She’ll have to hatch a truly spectacular scheme to have a chance at staying alive and saving her city.
Jazz is no hero, but she is a very good criminal.
That’ll have to do.
Propelled by its heroine’s wisecracking voice, set in a city that’s at once stunningly imagined and intimately familiar, and brimming over with clever problem-solving and heist-y fun, Artemis is another irresistible brew of science, suspense, and humor from #1 bestselling author Andy Weir.
Awesome5By DklaricheusI couldn’t put this book down, I loved the characters and the plot grew more and more intense and exciting. It’s scientific but not hard to understand, it’s futuristic but not too far from earth, it’s action packed suspenseful and funny all at the same time. I highly recommend it... I never write reviews but this book blew me away! I am not a bit Sci-Fi fan but this book might have changed that.
Excellent Read5By Poulin66Fun, lite, fast paced - little science thrown in for good measure.
Greatbook5By kijoolI love it kinda new for me!
I enjoyed it4By Cut woodGood book.
Boring3By Lauren BooksNothing special about this story or the characters
Artemis1By JelmediaWhat a major, disappointing follow-up to The Martian. This is a Hollywood movie script masquerading as a novel, and a weak one at that. Silly cat and mouse story laden with way too many unnecessary technical details. Don’t waste your time. Andy Weir can do better.
Loved it!5By SMS1961I actually wasn’t expecting it to be as engrossing as it was but I laughed out loud several times and couldn’t put it down. Keep em coming Andy!
Pablum1By JuJuBoBoWhat a let down.
Fun world, likable characters, interesting science5By CarrieslizzIs it as good as the Martian? No. Did I still love it? Yes. I read it in two sittings. Aside from the humor, it is pretty different from The Martian since it’s not about survival but more of a heist story, but like I said it’s still great.
Fantastic read!5By sapperj7Andy Weir proves with this book that “The Martian” was no fluke!! I love how he created this character who was flawed, hilarious and relatable. I had so much fun reading “Artemis”. I loved this book!!
