Today's review is for: Artemis
Category: New book by Andy Weir (who wrote the Martian. Which was a great book)
This is the story of a girl named Jazz who leaves in the Lunar town of Artemis on the moon. She has lived there since she was 6 years old with her father. She is brilliant but a slacker. She lives in near poverty because she refuses to get a steady job. Right now she moves contraband and does odd jobs for money. She has become friends with a Billionare who wants her to sabotage a Lunar business so that he can take over. It is risky and dangerous, but she wants the money, so she agrees to do it.
The heist starts her down a path that uncovers a conspiracy that has been in the works on Artemis. It puts her life, and the lives of people she loves, in danger. She gets in way over her head, but with the help of her friends she helps to bring down a cartel that could have ruined her existence on the moon forever.
This was a good book. Andy Weir, no doubt, is a great writer. The book is smart, and funny. It isn't a hard read, and it kept me entertained until the end. I didn't want to put it down.
If you read the Martian, read this book. If you didn't read the Martian, read that AND this book.
