Artemis

A Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

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

Jasmine Bashara never signed up to be a hero. She just wanted to get rich.
 
Not crazy, eccentric-billionaire rich, like many of the visitors to her hometown of Artemis, humanity’s first and only lunar colony. Just rich enough to move out of her coffin-sized apartment and eat something better than flavored algae. Rich enough to pay off a debt she’s owed for a long time.
 
So when a chance at a huge score finally comes her way, Jazz can’t say no. Sure, it requires her to graduate from small-time smuggler to full-on criminal mastermind. And it calls for a particular combination of cunning, technical skills, and large explosions—not to mention sheer brazen swagger. But Jazz has never run into a challenge her intellect can’t handle, and she figures she’s got the ‘swagger’ part down.
 
The trouble is, engineering the perfect crime is just the start of Jazz’s problems. Because her little heist is about to land her in the middle of a conspiracy for control of Artemis itself.
 
Trapped between competing forces, pursued by a killer and the law alike, even Jazz has to admit she’s in way over her head. She’ll have to hatch a truly spectacular scheme to have a chance at staying alive and saving her city.
 
Jazz is no hero, but she is a very good criminal.
 
That’ll have to do.
 
Propelled by its heroine’s wisecracking voice, set in a city that’s at once stunningly imagined and intimately familiar, and brimming over with clever problem-solving and heist-y fun, Artemis is another irresistible brew of science, suspense, and humor from #1 bestselling author Andy Weir.

Customer Reviews

Such a thrilling read!

Huge fan of Andy since the Martian days, and I was worried Artemis wouldn’t live up to its predecessor. Boy, I was so happy to find out my fears were unfounded.

While the theme of space is identical to the Martian, the story is fresh and just as thrilling. I highly recommend anyone who became lost in the pages of the Martian to pick up a copy of Artemis!

Amazing

Long story short, I was trying to fix my sleeping schedule n decided to read this throughout the night. Ended up reading like 1/2 or 2/3 of it in one go. And it was so goddam good. Jazz is one of my favorite characters period. And the word of Artemis is so thorough and thought out that it comes to life. I enjoyed all the characters in it, even the “bad” characters. Loved all the references too (even though some I didn’t get). Really good humor and very interesting story. Highly recommended.

Martian is why you’ve heard of Artemis

I really enjoyed the book “The Martian.” I read Artemis with low expectations because Martian is a tough act to follow. Also my hope is that if my expectations are low and the book exceeds them I will enjoy the book more. Unfortunately this book didn’t even meet my lowered expectations. The only reason anyone has heard of this book is because of the success of the Martian. If this had been Mr. Weir’s first book I don’t think anyone would have ever heard of it. The ending especially felt like one of those crappy movies that had to wrap up all the loose ends in a couple minutes cause the studio ran out of money.
