Artemis by Andy Weir
In the future, the Moon has become the home of the first city outside of Earth. It’s name? Artemis. It is home to only two thousand and is no cheap place to live. Jazz works taking deliveries from ships to customers, and does a little bit of sly smuggling on the side. Down-on-her-luck, Jazz has been offered the opportunity to pull herself out of the pits of space-poverty by Trond, a billionaire Moon-based businessman. All Trond requires her to do is to help him acquire a company in a slightly illegal manner.
After pouncing on the offer, she begins to concoct her genius scheme to complete her mission. However, like most rule-breaking novels, things end up much worse than anticipated.
Artemis has been meticulously crafted, everything from its economy to its food and safety precautions feel as detailed as real life cities. Andy Weir, the author of The Martian, has once again combined scientific fact, space and drama to create a thrilling yet believable story.
TEEN RATING: A compulsive book, Artemis will be devoured by fans of Science Fiction. Tense, riveting and enthralling, I will most likely find myself re-reading this book in the years to come. 4.7/5 14+
