Artemis is the new book from Andy Weir that is due out 14th November 2017, I was lucky enough to be given the chance due to Netgalley and Penguin Random House UK / Ebury Publishing to read an advanced copy.
Artemis follows Jazz Bashara who lives on the first and only city on the Moon. The place was built for rich tourist or an eccentric billionaire, which Jazz is not one of. She is one of the working class people who help keep Artemis running. Her job of a porter doesn’t pay well so she smuggles in some contraband on the side to help pay her bills.
Jazz is a small time criminal, who is given the chance to make a lot of money to commit the perfect crime. The perfect crime isn’t easy to pull off, and she has stepped into the middle of a battle for control of Artemis, now her only chance to survive is to pull off a bigger and more complex crime than before.
The story was amazing, Artemis is a non-stop and the story went into a direction I would never of guessed. The book also parts of the story gave me the Ocean 11 feeling which I loved.
This is the first book that I have read that the description of the location where Jazz lives and it made me feel claustrophobic. I am not normally claustrophobic in real life but I couldn’t live there.
Jazz as a character is really interesting, you immediately warm to her. Jazz is funny, smart and sarcastic, she has a mouth that will get her into trouble. In the book focus on the current storyline but we have an email conversation between Jazz and a friend back on earth called Kelvin where we find out more about Jazz past and how she ends up in this situation.
This book is a must read for the year.
I give this book 5 out of 5
