it was amazing
bookshelves: sf, space, classic-sf

Tremendous - "The Martian" was no fluke!

Probably not fair to say "Andy Weir is the new Heinlein" - he's just getting started - but, man!, he is on the right course.

Instead of simply fighting nature as in his first book, Weir sets up Jazz Bashara as a worker on the Moon, sometimes involved in petty crime, who gets caught up in a MAJOR crime. She's smart - like really, REALLY "why don't you live up to your potential" smart, and she works out a great plan. Of course, this being Weir - things don't work out the way Jazz plans. So she improvises - and improvises again... and keeps at it.

Some authors tell good stories - Weir is among them. A very few tell a story that gets you into can't-put-it-down mode - Weir is in that very select crowd.
