Artemis by Andy Weir

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.

The bestselling author of The Martian returns with an irresistible new near-future thriller – a heist story set on the moon.

Peer & Press Reviews

Artemis does for the moon what The Martian did for Mars.  His second novel concerns a likeable protagonist in peril, saved by her own resourcefulness, in a tale that leaves readers better informed about science than they were before they read it…  Plus the narrator has real charm.  There’s no question that this novel is going to be a hit.

Guardian

Jazz, Weir’s main character, is a moon-born version of Stieg Larsson’s Lisbeth Salander.  She is young, rebellious and a petty criminal…  Weir’s great strength, as he showed in The Martian, is to make us believe.  His future society living inside massive domes built not far from where Armstrong set foot in 1969 is utterly plausible.

Times

This exciting, whip-smart thrill-ride boasts a wonderful cast of characters, a wide cultural milieu and the appeal of a striking young woman as the main character… one of the best science fiction novels of the year!
