Marialyce I am so glad you liked this book, Paromjit. Andy Weir has a way with strong, in your face characters. Wonderful review as always.

Melissa What?! You haven't read The Martian?! Sounds like you're gonna have to now. 😂 Great review. I'm SO excited for this one.

Paula Kalin Great review, Paromjit. I like your description of the female lead.

Michael Wonderful review and nice to sample your joys. I envy you approaching the book without any expectations based on reading The Martian. I probably was distracted comparing the lead characters for similarities and differences. It was a fun read for me and satisfying for realistic world building. The pizzazz of Jazz refreshing despite the plethora of kick-ass female heroes showing they can out-man men. Yet it was a bit disappointing that he made her colorful on paper as Saudi in heritage without infusing significant cultural attributes or meaningful connections.

Judy Lesley Honestly, Paromjit, if you liked this one you really need to read The Martian. That book actually had me holding my breath during some of the scenes. I liked Artemis, but it was definitely a step down for me. If you do read The Martian, though, you need to let some time pass so you won't spend all your time mentally comparing the two books. They are very different.

Susan It is fascinating how differently people are responding to this book! Your review is great and glowing and I just read one that was scathing. Interesting!

Erin Clemence Paromjit, I never read The Martian either, although I did see the movie. This one sounds really intriguing!! I am also not a huge sci fi fan but you have piqued my interest. ;)

Thanks Marialyce...will try to read it sometime soon!


message 20: by Heidi (new)

Heidi The Martian was excellent. It's a great low key sci-fi option as it really does not veer into sci-fi fantasy.

I'm looking forward to Artemis and your review and others' comments on it have me anxiously waiting for my library hold on it!
