Artemis
It's not The Martian and that's ok.
For me , that's Artemis biggest flaw. I've read The Martian 4 or 5 times, most of those have been in a day or two. Artemis had a lot to live up and doesn't... READ MORE

Synopsis

The new novel from Andy Weir, the author of the global bestselling novel The Martian which inspired the blockbuster film directed by Ridley Scott.

Ever had a bad day?
Try having one on the moon...

WELCOME TO ARTEMIS. The first city on the moon. Population 2,000. Mostly tourists. Some criminals.

Jazz Bashara is one of the criminals. She lives in a poor area of Artemis and subsidises her work as a porter with smuggling contraband onto the moon. But it's not enough. So when she's offered the chance to make a lot of money she jumps at it.

But though planning a crime in 1/6th gravity may be more fun, it's a lot more dangerous.

A high-octane science space heist, packed with real science, Artemis is a winning vision of life in space that’s already set to be adapted for the big screen. As the Times writes, ‘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.’

Artemis Why?
I purchased the book Artemis on the basis that it might be as good as the story; Martian. I'll be honest I never read the story I only saw the film. I read... READ MORE

An engaging, enjoyable read. Interesting, somehow-believable science mixes with a storyline which - yes - does require some commitment to suspension of dis... READ MORE

A good read for sci-fi fans who like a touch of realism
Like so many others, I couldn't quite face my usual pleasures during the early weeks of lockdown ('shielding' in my case) - including reading. This was one... READ MORE

A case of a female character being written very badly by a male author
I wanted to check out Andy Weir’s work and since The Martian didn’t interest me Artemis was the only other option available. It’s not my normal typical rea... READ MORE
