Carol's Reviews > Artemis
Andy Weir, one of my favorite authors, serves up another winner with his new sci-fi thriller ARTEMIS....and Jazz Bashara is the spirited and defiant main attraction.
Jasmine/Jazz is basically a good person, has a smart mouth, works as a lowly Porter, and drives around in a cart she named Trigger. AND.... despite her sideline of smuggling AND superior IQ, she still lives in a room the size of a coffin....literally....and wants out!
SO.... with an offer she can't refuse to finally make some REALLY big bucks, Jazz plots a course to accomplish her most difficult and dangerous of illegal activities that threaten not only her life, but risk exile to her homeland of Saudi Arabia.
ARTEMIS is a super fun read with some intense moments, is just a little techie, and unlike THE MARTIAN, has more of a young adult feel to it, BUT....no problem....there's sabotage, murder and revenge....plus a side story going on via email to Earth....all wrapped up in a highly entertaining narrative depicting the extreme dangers of living on the Moon.
AND..... last but not least.....we have the finale when Jazz meets up with the ultimate of disasters with nowhere to run and nowhere to hide....unless she can hold her breath.
Many thanks to NetGalley and Crown Publishing for the ARC in exchange for an honest review!
