Summary

The best-selling author of The Martian returns with an irresistible new near-future thriller - a heist story set on the moon.

Jazz Bashara is a criminal. Well, sort of. Life on Artemis, the first and only city on the moon, is tough if you're not a rich tourist or an eccentric billionaire. So smuggling in the occasional harmless bit of contraband barely counts, right? Not when you've got debts to pay and your job as a porter barely covers the rent.

Everything changes when Jazz sees the chance to commit the perfect crime, with a reward too lucrative to turn down. But pulling off the impossible is just the start of her problems, as she learns that she's stepped square into a conspiracy for control of Artemis itself - and that now her only chance at survival lies in a gambit even riskier than the first.

Bringing to life Weir's brash, whip-smart protagonist is actress Rosario Dawson (Marvel's The Defenders, Sin City, Death Proof). With the breathless immediacy of one realizing they're one cracked helmet visor away from oblivion, Dawson deftly captures Jazz's first-person perspective – all while delivering sarcastic Weir-ian one-liners and cracking wise in the face of death. And with a cast of diverse characters from all walks of life calling Artemis home, Dawson tonally somersaults to voice Kenyan prime ministers, Ukrainian scientists, and Saudi welders. It's a performance that transports listeners right alongside Jazz, matching her step for step on every lunar inch of her pulse-pounding journey.

Not the Martian

A light and fun listen. A slightly kitsch action packed detective adventure novel. Incomparable to the Martian. I enjoyed the narration and the fast paced story line.
A perfect throw away after you have finished book for a long journey or a listen by the pool on holiday.

Why pick a narrator who can't do accents?

I agree with most of the other reviews regarding the story (it's no 'The Martian') and the portrayal of female characters (lack of depth and realism); but overall the narrative was interesting enough to keep me listening.

What nearly ruins it for me is the performance of any character with a non-American accent, of which there are MANY. I physically cringed whenever Jazz entered the pub in anticipation of the 'English' landlord having some lines. Swedish, Ukranian, Kenyan, Brazilian, you name it, there's a terrible impression of the accent to be heard. The American characters are performed well, with real enthusiasm, so credit where it's due, but I'm quickly jolted out of those brief moments of immersion the instant a non-American pipes up. Why pick a narrator who can't do accents, when there are so many who can?

Even Better Than The Martian

I liked this book even more than The Martian. The characters are so real in Artemis. I love the setting on the moon not too far in the future. The action builds throughout the book and the ending is so tense!

The main character being a criminal is super annoying, but it totally works. She’s crazy in an adventurous way.

EXCELLENT performance and a cracking tale

Rosario Dawson is incredible in this performance.
Got this as I'd enjoyed The Martian. This is a much quicker, slicker caper-style tale and is very entertaining, if not as thought-provoking.
Highly recommended for some lighter sci-fi listening.

wauw, just WAUW! Best audio in a looooong time.

I listen to a lot of audiobooks but this is a true master piece! Its like a movie in your head, but better! I didnt read Andies other books so this is my introduction to the techno-space-puzzle style he writes in, and its pretty cool. I saw the Martian, so i kind of had a feeling this was his style haha.
I love the characters that headline this story, and everything just fits around it.
Never was i bored or anything like that, and all the problems and solutions are so realistic!
Oh and did i say that this book is full of action? It starts small and builds up to this cressendo of mayhem and distruction, just like in big budget feature films.
One last thing; the actress who read this book is freaking AWESOME. The hardcore i-dont-give-a-flying-muck voice and attitude is perfect for this story, really well done.
Normally i dont give these kind of reviews but this was just very, very good.

Thanks guys, for putting all this work into this production.

Very Good Narration, Entertaining Story.

An engaging tale in Lunar Space. Rosario Dawson brings the main character and story to life, in a worthy follow up novel to The Martian.

Out of this world

Really great story, loved the characterisation and the narration which built into a believable universe. I also liked that 3rd world characters took centre stage. Makes a nice change. Recommended.

Good, Not Amazing

While the protagonist is entertaining, Artemis is just OK. The story arc wraps up oddly quickly.

Loved this audio book!

Thoroughly enjoyed this book. As with "The Martian", Andy Weir tucks huge amounts of science into a really good plot line. Really worth a listen.
